Measure tool or plot course from here in Android?

Please forgive me if this has been covered elsewhere. I need to find plot a course from here in the Android app. I need help now and I'm underway.

Currently in the Georgetown South Carolina Harbor and preparing to make way for Charlotte. It's a long way to Texas.

If anyone has the short answer, I sure would appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

EDIT: apologies, I didn't realize there was an Android app for CPN. Carry on

From the menu at the top right side, the "three dots".

Tap that and the third choice down the list should be create a new route. Tap that.

Then tap the screen to place waypoints.

Then when done tap and hold anywhere and a menu come up to 'end route'.

Waypoints can be dragged around to adjust the route.

It's a bit fuzzy to get it right on a touch screen. Much easier with a mouse. (my opinion)
