MX Mariner Update

With MX Mariner when there is an update does the app update automatically or do I need to reinstall the app

Re: MX Mariner Update

It updates automatically if you set it to do it. The build date on my Nexus 7 version shows 11/03/2012 and I downloaded it six weeks ago.

When you download an app from Google Play there is a button to select automatic updating. You can go into Play, hit the down arrow at the top and and see all of your downloads and change that setting if you want to.

Re: MX Mariner Update

If you're not set up for automatic updating (I like to choose when and where I download all those bytes), you can just go Play Store > [Settings button] > My Apps, and it will show you any apps that have updates available. Then just click "Update 3" or whatever number it is, or click on each app individually to see what the update contains, and update the apps one by one.

For MX Mariner, you should also check in periodically to see when new charts are available. Open the app, go to [Settings button] > Settings > Install Chart Imagery, then choose NOAA USA or whatever region you want, and you'll see which charts have updates available. Charts cannot be set to update automatically (I think).

Hi. I have just bought a nexus 7 to replace my GPS because Garmin has gotten ridiculously expensive. But I'm having trouble finding an app and/or charts for the Bahamas that work on it. I used MX Mariner to come down the east coast and liked it fine, but I don't think NOAA has BCB charts for the Bahamas. Anyone know or have a suggestion for another app for Bahamian charts? Thanks!

Re: MX Mariner Update

I would PM Will, you can find him posting here on several threads, but the main one you will find if you look for "Android Development Underway", he goes by Manimaul.
