OpenCPN on Nexus 7

Wondered if anyone has installed OpenCPN on a 2012 Nexus 7. If so, how did it go and does OpenCPN recognise the internal GPS? Worth doing now or should I wait for further development of Ubuntu Touch?

Thanks,

Jim Tippett

Re: OpenCPN on Nexus 7

Welcome to the forum. I can never tell if a tablet size unit is Apps or Programs but after researching Open Cpn, I can tell you that thus far, Open Cpn only runs with a program based CPU. Hope this helps.

See my post here for useful information. Xperia Z (sgp311) users - Cruisers & Sailing Forums

Definitely worth doing. Ubuntu Touch is not the answer Linux users were hoping for.
