In fact I would go so far as to say totally irresponsible to find I suddenly have no access to the charts. Fortunately I have a full set of paper charts. Anyone else had this problem.
    As others said they can be used offline that's the idea. I purchased an android tablet I think its about 8 inch, works great, much more space.

    My tablet keeps displaying a message that I am running out of memory even though I have a 32Gb SD card plugged into it.

    It is at the bottom of Settings menu as a coloured bar. I have done it in Tablet and phone.

    On the new app if you purchase a subscription can you download and use the offline map on multiple devices?
    When the subscription runs out I guess no more offline map download capability

    Just to reiterate. I was using the old UK HD app not Boating HD. It looks like they have finally killed off the old app. All working normally now with Boating HD. Thanks for the replies.

    I'm not at all clear about the subscription system. I've recently received a notification that my subscription has expired but I still have off line access to all the chart areas I've opened. I'm assuming I'll keep my access but not be able to update.

    This seems to confirm my assumption.
    "Download chart layers that reside on your device even after expiration." (From Navionics website)

    The Storage Location option may not be there immediately on startup, on my set up it takes a few minutes to recognise the external SD card.
    Many thanks for that.

    I've used my Android Navionics for AIS for the first time this cruise and without CPA or TCPA it's a rubbish implementation. However, I've just received an email from Navionics to say that the AIS implementation has been updated again but it doesn't specifically say that CPA/TCPA has been included. I'll do the update and check it out when I have a better connection.

    I've just updated and still no CPA/TCPA which seems a big omission.

    I couldn't see any target vectors even though it is turned on in the menu so I'll need to fiddle around a bit more.
