Re: OpenCPN for Android - Dave Register


You seem to be the only one using Android v 6.xxxx for OpenCPN Android.

The problem is that the app is unable to find the path to/storage/extSdCard/ ..any has been replaced with /storage/609A-F1FD/

I found out by trying all the directories available...

I also had to change to the same path for my OruxMaps app.

All working fine again now.

Re: OpenCPN for Android - Dave Register

Forget about the ībigdumboatī forum login. Itīs more secretive than the NWO.

Read my previous message:

"As per the two attachments,one shows the path when on Android 5.2.0, and the other after the update to v. 6.0.1

Trying all,and by sheer luck I found the now cryptically named /storage/609A-F1FD/OPENCPN/ATLANTIC etc. is my extdrive.

Using my Solid Explorer File Manager,I can read/write to the Extdrive as before,and can see no mention of the /storage/609A-F1FD/OPENCPN/ path.

I also experienced that there is a limit to the amount of .kap charts you can enter up in the path.

I normally have all my .kap charts filed alphabetically in country order under the directory OCPNCPN but had to limit the number of kapīs by 4 areas. i.e. ATLANTIC,CARIBBEAN AND PACIFIC, (4 separate paths) as otherwise the app would crash.

To begin with,I think I uninstalled and re-installed 5 times,but later learned to reboot when the app crashed.

Even now,my Android OCPN will crash/hang now and again when I try to start it. Perhaps it depends on how much of the internal memory is available at startup time? Would it not be possible to load just the chart visible when you last used the app? and then open/close as you pan across the screen?
Loading up ALL the charts in a limited memory seems a bit excessive??

I still have not found out how to insert/delete a waypoint in a route.

This all has to do with Android 6.01 "
