Charts for Android

Attended a good webinar on OpenCPN from SevenSeasU last night. Appreciate the introduction to what appears to be a really phenomenal program!!

I have successfully installed the Android version on my Sony Experia tablet (which I love!) and see in the options page that the Chartdownloader plugin is installed, but I can't figure out how to use it. There is no icon on the top taskbar.

Any help?

Also, is there separate documentation for the Android version?

Thanks all!!

Re: Charts for Android

(Not what you ask about) BUT this potentially helpful too: OpenCPN takes (ia) BSB charts and these you can create from scans and screen dumps too.

Open OPTIONS->CHARTS

On the right tab is the chart downloader.

If you don't see the chartdownloader tab under OPTIONS->CHARTS to to OPTIONS->PLUGINS and make sure the chart downloader plugin is "ENABLED". It should be enabled by default.
