No access to function keys

I am hoping to use an Asus tablet running Android 7 for my new chartplotter running OpenCPN. All I have to enter information with is a pen/stylus, no keyboard or mouse. Is there a way I can access all features like function keys and such? thanks

Hi seapop,

With an Android device you don't need function keys nor keyboard. Using pop up screens with keyboard display, long presses and other navigation features the program interfaces nicely .. once you get through the simple learning curve.

Please purchase the Dave Register version (now 1.0.19), then join the forum dedicated to supporting the program at https://bigdumboat.com/aocpn/forum/

You get your questions answered and problems solved on the forum.

Good luck, Terry
