Lat & Long not showing in Status Bar, OpenCPN - Android

Hi,

Is there a setting that I haven't come across because the lat & long of the vessel does not show in the Status Bar of OpenCPN for Android?

Stingo,

The status bar does not display Lat and Lon in the Android version. The dashboard plugin that comes with the app can be used to display Lat/Lon. The most recent version is 1.08.

Yes, it is the paid version, but well worth it, and there is no charge for updates.

Re: Lat & Long not showing in Status Bar, OpenCPN - Android

Yoya, here's the links:
OpenCPN Official App for Android News
22 Apr 2016 OpenCPN App for Android version 1.0.9 released

Android Support Forum
OpenCPN Android Forum

Dave's Home Port Bigdumboat Home Port

You're welcome to stick around this forum and try some other OpenCPN software for Mac, Linux or Windows, but specific android questions will get answered best on the dedicated forum. That will also help all other Android users.

Yoya, Gerhard is German and sometimes gets up out of bed on the wrong side, which makes him cranky, we try to understand. He is blunt and unsociable sometimes, but he is ours. We have a long term friend/hate relationship. When the sun is shining he is very knowledgeable and helpful. We like that Gerhard! I sometimes think he is a friend, sometimes not.

PS bcn preceded me.
