Chart font size on Android Phone

I recently installed the app on my Android phone.

Everything seems to be working fine, except that it is impossible to see the data on the vector charts. The information seems to be there, as tiny, hardly visible dots.

I understand that the font size can be changed for some of the information, such as "Chart Text", but nothing I try seem to affect the visibility of the depth soundings.

The numbers remain dots even when zooming in.

"Enable Tablet Scaled Graphics interface" is checked.

How do I change the size of the font size for critical information on the vector charts?

Thank you.

Viben,

If you are using the Android paid version, this is the right forum,

Re: Chart font size on Android Phone

Ok, I think I figured it out by trying it out in the windows version: Options > User Interface and then by sliding bar under 'Chart Object scale factor' the right.

HOWEVER, on the android phone (it has a 5.5-inch 1080p screen!), the menu is too big for the screen, with the effect that the 'Ok', 'Cancel' and 'Apply' buttons at the bottom are hidden. The menu window cannot be zoomed in or out, it does not move with the usual touch screen actions and the there is no scroll bar allowing the user to scroll further down the menue.

Advice?

And since you raised the issue, can anyone help me understand what the difference is between the paid version and the free version of the app???

The free version is also downloadable from the Play Store, and even the icons used the identify the apps are (almost) identical.

viben...

Since you asked....

1. The paid version of OpenCPN for Android is based on the current production release of OpenCPN. Timely upgrades for enhanced features, bug fixes, device support, etc. are available for download from the PlayStore as they become available. The most recent version was published in Feb, 2017.
The free version of OpenCPN on the PlayStore has no upgrade history, and is based on a version of OpenCPN more than a year old.

2. The paid version of OpenCPN for Android offers unlimited high-priority support on a dedicated forum hosted by the OpenCPN Lead developer.
The free version of OpenCPN on the PlayStore appears to offer no dedicated support channel, or specific support of any kind.
