Open CPN on tablet?

Anyone run the regular windows version of open CPN on a windows tablet? How is it? I've found the Android version is pretty ... new to be super usable at this time.

thanks!

Re: Open CPN on tablet?

I use OpenCpn on a Windows 10 tablet. It's receiving the data from my instruments via NMEA 0183 and AIS via USB just fine.

It's in a fixed position in the nav area and I found it easier to use a mouse rather than the touch screen.

Re: Open CPN on tablet?

I'll be getting location data via wifi and NMEA tcp. So ideally, I could use touchscreen, but I can make a mouse work if that's way better.
