Well done guys - especially Dave.
I have been lurking on this forum for a number of years but really waiting for this Android version to appear.
FYI - I have it working on a Samsung Tab 10.1 (2014) Edition - Android Vers 4.4.2
A couple of little niggles that I have reported on Flyspray - not sure if that is the right thing to do or not!!
First - the depth
font on CM93 charts
seems very small to read - maybe I've missed some setup somewhere.
I have a Windows PC running OpenCPN reading NMEA
The ships GPS and AIS
are functioning correctly within the Windows OpenCPN.
I set up a TCP output connection on the Windows OpenCPN
An additional PC running Windows OpenCPN on the same network reads the IP (TCP) NMEA
data for GPS and AIS
correctly and displays both the Ships position and any AIS targets.
However, OpenCPN on the Android (Beta 4.1.530) only shows the IP (TCP) data for the ships position (GPS) - no AIS displayed on the Android device.
Maybe there is an option in the new feature under the new OpenCPN (Windows) version (not yet Beta released) that might fix this - there seems to be a new feature within the NMEA set up - just a thought.
My ships setup is as follows:-
Boat is a 20m Princess Flybridge Yacht
She has 2 station Raymarine
G series (Glass Bridge) setup.
Each station had two glass bridge monitors.
can switch between the native Raymarine
nav system and the ships Windows PC
The ships PC runs a multitude of software
This means that at the press of a button I can switch between Raymarine and OpenCPN
Under OpenCPN, I have a number of charts - mostly ones that I have scanned myself (BSB - KAP). Charts are a kind of hobby of mine.
I georeference my charts using an old copy of Memory Map Windows software
. I have written a C program which converts the Memory Map QCT files into BSB
As a result, I have over 2500 raster charts that I have, mostly, constructed myself. As I say, a kind of hobby but, using this system at sea, I can use a multitude of different chart sources.
Bit Geeky though!!
My Windows KAP files copied across to the Android and worked immediately - even some that contain quite large bitmaps.
I am an active posted on the UK's YBW forums
where there also seems to be an active following of your software.
This probably not the place to say all this but I (kind of) wanted to thank all who are concerned with this fabulous software - especially Dave of course.
