Re: OpenCPN for Android Alpha test 4.1.412

I've got Opencpn Android alpha running on my Galaxy Tab s10.5 with 5.0.2. NOAA ENC charts do not display, but RNC charts do and internal GPS is recognized in OCPN.

Re: OpenCPN for Android Alpha test 4.1.412

thanks, effectively the resolution on the Pipo M9 is 1080 x 1920 pixels
a real shame because everything else works. the icons are a bit small as well. If anyone has a idea, or maybe should I wait more developpment of Ocpn ...

Joel U; s/v Alobar
With your tablet resolution @2560x1600 pixels OpenCPN details will appear tiny to you. Obtaining a balance between how charts display and user icons like the menu bar, chart bar, GPS activity icon and windows related to settings is a challenge developers are trying to address. Lots of zooming into menu and windows will probably be necessary, especially where tapping on the wrong choice can delete your work...

If KBOX2 uses linux in a chroot environment to run programs like OpenCPN, it's been done using a different android app called Linux Deploy. See: Building on Motorola Xoom | Official OpenCPN Homepage

You'll still have the tiny issue dogging you...

Regarding Lollipop. Developers at xda have expressed some concern Google appears to be closing options previously available to them that allowed the production of customized ROMs. What this means to anyone buying newer android devices with Lollipop is they may not be able to root their device, install custom ROMs or use programs like Linux Deploy to install linux. New and shiny is not always the best way to go...

Re: OpenCPN for Android Alpha test 4.1.412

Would it help to implement custom scaling of the toolbar icons?

Intuitively it seems to be the easiest solution. In Linux, Windows and most likely other operating systems, configuring windows and bars containing icons is highly configurable. Simply dragging on a frame element enables resizing vertically or horizontally. Doable with an android OpenCPN?

Re: OpenCPN for Android Alpha test 4.1.412

For very small screen as smart phones the only way is to hide tool bar. Even resized to very small would take too much unnecessary space

Upsizing to a 10" tablet is worth spending $100 or less for if your kitty permits. Motorolla Xooms like mine are available in this price range. I purchased my backup Verizon Xoom for $80 on Craigslist. Like new condition. Usability of OpenCPN is remarkably improved on a 10" screen.

No. I'm only saying you have choices. Run OpenCPN on your smartphone with a small display and capability of hiding the menu, which will probably come to pass. Or, buy a used 10" tablet which will make using OpenCPN more rewarding and easier to use. If and when it is implemented, hiding the menu will be possible on both formats. Your choice...

Re: OpenCPN for Android Alpha test 4.1.412

Nexus 7, Andriod 5.1
NOAA Charts

I may be missing something in the setup. I am trying to set up a Route. Every time I touch the screen to pan or zoom, the result is a new mark. Is there a way to do this correctly?

The raster charts work. ENC charts show on the scan dialog but are not displayed.

Nice work so far porting this to android. Thanks for doing it.

Does your image show what you see when OpenCPN is first started? No zooming required?

Altered any of the interface/display settings?

Looks good!

Re: OpenCPN for Android Alpha test 4.1.412

Display settings are default for the tablet, no zoom for display or interface. Tablet scaled graphics interface in OCPN is enabled.
