Android Charts on SDcard?

How do I get OpenCPN to see charts on the MicroSD card in the slot?

When I search for chart directories from the settings/charts/chart files tab I can only select charts on the Samsung Tab's main memory.

There isn't enough main memory for the charts on the main memory. Hence the need to access the SD card

Re: Android Charts on SDcard?

I think this can be a problem with the "free" version that was sorted out years ago on the maintained "paid" version. Which version do you have?

  • Check and if needed follow hoolie's note
  • You may want to move OpenCPN, and the chart plugins (oeSENC, oeRNC), to the external SD card if not there already. (Be sure O has permissions to read/wright to that card.)
  • Make a chart directory on the Ext. SD card and move your charts. (Some Android versions don't accept files to be stored at a arbitrary location. In that case you can though still store in a directory appurtenant OpenCPN or its plugins like: ....Android/data/org.....opencpn/data/charts. E.g. oeSENC will suggest its own directory as default when installing charts.
  • Point to OCPN by options->chart files->Add directory where the charts are located. -> Ok/Apply
    You know the upper three dots in the file manager are traveling back one step, do you? You need to get down to the root to enter up into the external SD card.
