You're going to have to provide a good deal more information to get a decent answer, otherwise there's no help that can be given. First Step, read the User Manual, getting started > GPS

Re: OpenCpn on pixel c

The Pixel C is an Android device (Android 6.0).

The fastest response you might get therefore here:
OpenCPN Android Forum
at the dedicated OCPN Android forum.

Re: OpenCpn on pixel c

How good is the Pixel C machine itself? Worth buying one?

Is the GPS built-in? Are there other sensors onboard (baro?, compas? etc)

How do you pair the GPS? BT? Wifi?

barnakiel

Very nice device, too bad nearly EUR 700 where we are. Maybe later.

Re: OpenCpn on pixel c

I do not know what GPS you use. I have no BT experience.

If the GPS is a wifi source then:

You pair the device with a wifi GPS by connecting the device to the access point that contains the GPS data (your router, your AIS transponder, etc.) then you select the network as a data source in OpenCPN settings.

This should be very easy.

If you pair to a wifi GPS your life on the battery will be severely shortened. But without GPS onboard the device you do not have other good choices (there are BT gps units but I have only seen one BT AIS unit). I have never seen BT instrument routers (if such exist).

Re: OpenCpn on pixel c

You can use the Samsung as a GPS, pair the devices and ask the Pixel to use Samsung GPS over BT or WiFi.

Is this what you are trying to achieve?
