OpenCPN on Android.. Great.. but how abt the charts?

Hello,

I am using OpenCpn on my HP laptop and very satisfied with it. I use the downloaded maps i have on my external HD and a very simple GPS stick and all is fine (except for the fact that i cant get my laptop pick the AIS wifi signal from my Comar Wifi AIS installation, but that is another topic).
I was glad to see that there also an Android version of OpenCPN (already downloaded and working.. ) however, how about the maps? Where , how to find/download etc if i want to use my Samsung Smart fone..

Thanks for the support.

If not enrypted charts, just copy the maps from your pc.
