Thanks for the feedback. I want centralise the navigation system so I only have to plan a trip on the laptop and view/follow it on an Android device. I don't want to have to download charts and enter waypoints on two devices.

I tried several apps including Nuticharts on my Android. My two favorites are MX Mariner and Marine Traffic. However they are not integrated with my centralised navigation system (Polar View). They are nice supplementary tools.

I purchased both Navionics and Polar View and found Polar View less expensive and more comprehensive. For example, all NOAA charts can be easily downloaded and installed for free in Polar View. The grib manager makes overlaying weather info easy. Polar Com simplifies management of NMEA inputs.

For the record, I have no association with Polar Navy. I just like their products.
