Re: Navionics -Android
There is "Navionics" which is a paid subscription service application, which you must paid for annually. Then there is Boating HD Marine and Lakes which looks just like Navionics but is a free app with less "features."
Could be your paid subscription lapsed?
Also I attempted to take screenshots of my Boating HD application and it apparently is disabled on the app. I had never tried it before but it surely seems they went out of their way to disable it.
I am using iOS, so it likely is different than android. I have historically been an android user (and supported our work android phones), but have recently (last 4 months) gone iPhone because my new employer only provides iPhones for use, and to learn to support the devices it made sense for me to own one. The applications are very similar between platforms though.
I have been debating getting a chartplotter for my 32, but I'm on an inland lake and not sure how useful it'd be. I may very well be best served with a proper charging port and a nice clamp for my phone at the wheel. The Boating application seems to work well for me in this case.
