Some Navionics questions

I recently downloaded Navionics for Android onto my cellphone. I have a few questions that I have not been able to find answers to.

How do I change the units from Metric to US units (feet specifically)?

How do I get the software to keep the boat centered on the screen?...without having to manually hit the center button.

Is there a way to label waypoints so that I can give them my own name?

Is there an alternative to Navionics that can be downloaded onto my phone, free or not?

Thanks

Re: Some Navionics questions

Aqua Map US would be an alternative. We use it on our tablets...

Not familiar with Navionics so can't compare...

Re: Some Navionics questions

1 Menu (bottom left of screen), Settings (near bottom of list), units (top of list)

2 tap the course area circle in the bottom left of the screen one time. It will turn a light blue. if you drag the screen to a new location it will turn back off.

3. touch on the waypoint, then touch the name of the waypoint (it will have an arrow pointing right on the screen. Then click the pencil to edit.

4. Many options, search the forums, google for articles, It all depends on what you prefer.

There are many youtube videos and articles online showing tips and how to. just google what you need.
