Re: Help / FAQ

Rich, you will just need the actual supported version of Android OpenCPN:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....opencpn&hl=en from Dave.

The version you are trying is quite outdated and does not know about plug-ins for example.

Re: Help / FAQ

Rich..
If you have installed the oeSENC plugin, text step is to find the oeSENC Plugin app icon on your device and run it. When started you select "Install OESENC Plugin". Then it will confirm and start OpenCPN. Now, open OpenCPN Tools->Charts and move to and click the tab: oesenc Charts. Here you may first "create a HWID" if you haven't done that before. Then "Add/Update oesenc chartsets". If you already have bought a license it will be visible after login. Otherwise Please visit O-Charts.org to buy the chart set license you want and then retry the add/update. All preparation, download and chart installation will be performed this way.

And for a Android device there's another forum site for further help: https://bigdumboat.com/aocpn/forum/
For further help with oeSENC shop there's a contact button on O-Charts.org.
And always listen to bcn he knows all about this.
Good luck

Re: Help / FAQ

I downloaded the most recent OpenCPN, downloaded 2 Florida charts. I can see the red frame of these charts on the primary world map, but not the chart. On the instructional video there is a zoom in and L click move made and suddenly the chart is visible inside the red outline. But I am not able to get this result? How can I get the chart to appear inside the red frame? Greg COwell

Re: Help / FAQ

Down at the bottom of the screen are some green or blue ovals. Click one of these and see what happens.

Re: Help / FAQ

Thanks for the reply but I don't see any ovals. Tried to attach screen shot but not sure you can see it. Any other thoughts? You can see the red frames which seems to confirm that there are 2 charts there that have been downloaded but are not visible. So close. Greg

Re: Help / FAQ

Hey Nohal, I sure appreciate your reply but I do not see what you are pointing at that will result in making the chart visible. I don't see any blue or green ovals? I did notice that when the cursor is near the bottom of page it turns into green triangle but this does not make the desired chart visible. Thanks. Greg

Hey Dave, that simple instruction did it. I must have missed it in the instruction video. Thanks. Greg

This link is broken. Bunch of other sites also point to it, even him from an earlier site, but can't find the new one...
