Cannot load downloaded charts, raster or vector (s57). Not sure where to request help because the author of opencpn does not support this free repackage. Here is what my log says: Starting chart database Update... Searching directory: /storage/emulated/0/Charts/ENC_ROOT for *.kap Searching directory: /storage/emulated/0/Charts/ENC_ROOT for *.geo Searching directory: /storage/emulated/0/Charts/ENC_ROOT for *.000 Searching directory: /storage/emulated/0/Charts/ENC_ROOT for *.s57 Searching directory: /storage/emulated/0/Charts/ENC_ROOT for 00300000.a Finished chart database Update Error: Failed to set temporary file permissions (error 1: Operation not permitted) Chart cache purge. So, time to uninstall and use the official supported version ( this review is for the free opencpn, 4.1.1028
Crashed several times on setting up but now charts installed stable, although hudl 2 has Intel Atom processor. More testing to do. Fine on phone.
Have tried to load Cmap CM93 vector maps and LINZ New Zealand BSB charts without success. Have used both successfully on PC Windows version of opencpn but wont load on my android version running on my Samsung 10.1 tablet. It appears load, or at least look at the directory that holds the chart files but all I keep getting is the base map supplied with the app. I also notice that when the app starts there is the word raster appearing at the top of screen and possibly a dropdowm menu but this disappears when the base chart and menu items appear. I have tried reloading the app and also the charts to different locations but no joy. Is there anything else I can try? I have looked at all the online help and forums but other than what I have tried no other suggestions are given. I like opencpn but need help otherwise I will just give up. Please help!
I use this app exclusively. Intuitive and stable. Nice work and GREATLY appreciated!!
Same features and running faster than the paid version
can't load the Charts . :( :(
Will not lock on gps. Other apps lock on gps in 2sec. With fl charts installed is telling me that I am in NC. Uselles without gps
Well done David
Wow - OpenCPN now on Android. Awesome dudes. Working very well for me too.
Won't get charts. Doesn't ask for them like the directions say. Uninstalled. Reinstalled after your comments. Still not working uninstalled
This version does not have the instrument pack. The toolbox wouldnt open on a samsung tab 10.1. Needs a lot of work to be like the pc version.
Years that I use it on pc. Fundamental open software for your life offshore
It is one of the best programm for mariner! I will download it and testing with greatest plesure
