access laptop running OpenCPN with tablet or phone

What would be the cleanest way to access OpenCPN running on my laptop with a tablet or phone.

At the moment I have to run both when sailing and keeping the data synchronized is a challenge.

I am wondering is remote desktop will be a solution

Remote desktop probably would be a solution for some, sure not for everybody.

Re: access laptop running OpenCPN with tablet or phone

Its always a pain to access a PC from a phone or tablet. The problem with Remote Desktop is that the host PC will be disabled while ever you remote access it from another device. You might also encounter issues with scaling if HDPI screens are in the chain. I'm a bit of a fan of NoMachine (which is free for personal use) as it is a VNC style of connection that keeps the host PC functional at it's console even with a remote session connected.
