Amazon Fire HD 10 & open CPN

Amazon fire HD 10 uses its own version of Android. Therefore my question is will the Open CPN Android version work on the HD 10 Amazon Fire Tablet?

Maybee?
But first you have to adapt it to Play store. Search Google for "How to".
Then it's not clear if there's a GPS on the device and wether it will work after a Play store adaption.
If no better answer shows up here you've to try. The Android version 5.x would be sufficient but what's in the description "Customized" we don't know.

Re: Amazon Fire HD 10 & open CPN

I have opencpn on a fire and it works fine. As previously stated you need to install the google play store so you can download opencpn. If you have a nmea to wifi adapter you get all the boat info which includes gps. I don't use it much, but it is completely functional.
