New Android app to link OCPN
Hi all. And first of all, Happy New Year!! and of course Fair Winds!!
I´ve been away for a while due to family
illness etc... but hope to be back on a regular basis once I´ve catched up on what´s been happening here.
I´ve found a very promising Android based app by the name Vectir
connects to your laptop
. You just finger tap the OCPN functions,or use the mouse pointer which I find a little sluggish presently but is under improvement. Zoom in/out by finger-pinch. Move map in all directions with finger slide. Seems to work very well. Also includes facilities to browse the PC file directories from your tablet or use your tab as a wireless mouse for your laptop
You can download the two components here:
Vectir - IR, WiFi and Bluetooth Remote Control, Mobile Phone PC Media Player Controller
One for the Android device,the other for your Windows laptop
