The file path listed here is correct for that phone
and OS version.
It varies with different versions of Android and probably phone
models as well. For example mine is.... storage
This path is needed only if the user is attempting a manual transfer of charts into opencpn. Not the easiest method in my opinion.
To me, it's better to know where the charts were downloaded or transfered to originally. Typically the downloads folder, which is easier to find and may already be familiar to the user.
Then to transfer use the dialog boxes available in Opencpn.
- tap the wrench icon.
- tap the Charts tab.
- tap Add Directory button
- do not tap the + sign unless you intend to manually enter the file path to the downloaded charts, with no syntax errors.
- instead tap/browse to that location with downloaded charts. And not just the download or whatever folder necessarily, unless it's a single
chart or two. Usually it's a folder nested within the dowload folder containing many files. For example in my case for Florida
charts downloaded from NOAA, it's. .....Download/FL ENCS/ENC ROOT.
- then tap apply and ok.
How to tap browse looks different as well from phone to phone or tablet.
But you will see a directory list of folders but probably at the wrong level of nested folders. Look for the folder symbol followed by two periods. Tap that to back up one level. Folders will look more familiar most likely and then tap browse to the downloaded location. Which must be known by the user.
It's easier to do than describe.
Any corrections or input to my post is welcomed and encouraged.
