Re: Viera

Yes, a bit of a learning curve, but a good application, especially considering the price.

For vector charts you have to define what the application shows. Go into Preferences, Charts, Vector Chart Display and choose what to display. Depth numbers are probably "soundings".

Re: Viera

It appears that the free Android app is better than the purchased Android app. Purchased app crashes, balky, and almost useless.

Sorry.

Re: Viera

This might be down to Android version and hardware. Developers do not test their products for all combinations.

Re: Viera

Thank you I will post some pictures, dash board on top right with tracking, course directory , course routing ,ship; when I place cursor over is blank. The device is a Lenovo TB x304f; android version.8.1.0 ,Kernel,3.18.71;cpu qualcomm , snapdragon 425. I see a lot of support for the other operating systems but not so much for the Android.



Went back to raster charts due to lack of depth readings on the vector charts. O.K. by me. Will keep at it. I really like the AIS feature, very, very helpful.


Thank you all very much. I find myself messing with the program and not piloting my craft !



Hopefully I can work this out. And thank you all.


Regards,
Viera

Re: Viera

For some strange reason dash board on upper right is working. No need for pictures.

Just came back from 4 hour cruise , app worked perfectly. Have I mentioned I like the AIS ?

Of course I have , each and everytime I have used the app.

Thanks for your help.

From the paperclip (1) open the browser windows and select the file to upload (2). Don't forget to upload (3) - the upload button gets often hidden under the right margin of the window.

Re: Viera

Morning. when I activate a route on right upper side of tablet there is a black wide bar with eta, brg, etc. At botyom there appears to be a " road way " .Does the ship run along that " road way " when underway ?

Have not tried yet while underway.

Thanks , getting to like this better and better. We need automatic routing ?


Regards

Bill
