Re: OpenCPN for Android Beta test 4.1.718

Yes, this possible and in the same way as in the other architectures.
You will have to enable the expert mode.

Anyhow: the next beta is out and you might to give it a try as well:

A wifi one, yes.

And some people use BT ones too.

Alternative - a wired remote gps via serial port (takes an OTG usb able tablet).

However, you may simply opt for a gps capable tablet. This is practical if you want to navigate away from the (e.g. boat, van, house, etc)

Cannot locate on Play Store. Several tries.

Is the 1.0 available and I'm simply doing something dumb? Thanks all.

Re: OpenCPN for Android Beta test 4.1.718

Have used Opencpn 4.1.915 9-15-2015 to make waypoints and routes for a house site in MT and I am trying to save all routes and save all waypoints.

I pick the download directory on my extSDcard and save the routes and waypoints and nothing appears. Where would these be landing? Or are they not saving?

I then hooked the phone up to my laptop and did searches for navobl.xml on both the main card and the extSDcard, also searches for KML and gpx. I came up with nothing.

Does anyone know where the navobj.xml are stored in an android system? and can I copy it to my laptop, so I can start developing a better site plan for my nephew who is building a shop/apartment this winter.

Re: OpenCPN for Android Beta test 4.1.718

With v4.1.915 I am unable to export tracks, routes and waypoints. Does anyone else experience this bug?
