Re: Help android open cpm

Probably a couple different ways to do it. Some differences between Android versions too, maybe.

But if you go to the tools menu (wrench icon), then the charts tab. You may see "add directory" there. Tap that and a dialog box to browse for the chart folder appears. Find your folder and select it. Note the double dots at the top is to go up a level in the folder structure.

Best to know the path to your folder.

Are you using the purchased, supported version? If so, then you will find assistance at the forum OpenCPN Android Forum for the Purchased App

An early tutorial I did may also help: Exploring OpenCPN for Android Rev2(11Nov15)

If you are using the free version you are on your own.

Re: Help android open cpm

Are the charts in an external sd card?

On my Xperia tablet the external sd card is /storage/0123-4567/

When looking for the charts in Opencpn you could try looking in /storage/ for something like that, it isn't shown as the card name you might be used to.
