I don't know of a solution as you describe for Android, but the laptop
solution works very well.
I have an XB-8000 which comes with its own dedicated GPS
. The XB-8000 transmits NMEA
sentences over WiFi
, so I connect my Windows 7 laptop running OpenCPN
and downloaded CM93 charts. OpenCPN
interprets the XB-8000 AIS
data and displays ships and positions on the chart. It works very well and is an excellent solution. There has been some work
on developing an Android version but as far as I know it is far from release ready - you said you were not technical.
As a separate system, I use Navionics
on my Android tablet (works on phone as well), but that system will not accept and interpret external NMEA
data such as transmitted by the XB-8000. If you can find an Android charting application that accepts such NMEA signals then you could have a solution - but I don't think it exists.
You could display your laptop screen
on the Android via Teamviewer or similar, but just using the laptop alone seems better to me.
Perhaps you should contact Vesper directly as they are quite helpful whether by email
