The app is nice but is not compatible with needed accessibilty settings on my S22 Ultra. It requires me to use the lowest screen zoom setting which makes the text on all other apps so small that I can't read it. So it's either A) change the screen zoom setting every time I open the app and change it back when I close the app or B) just find another app. I chose option B.

As a follow up on previous post: The app seems to have stabilized and now loads up and holds onto downloaded charts. It has not crashed again. It puts much information that previously took a lot of time to gather for cruising long distances. Having it on Android device helps to quickly look up info. needed on a cruise. If I can get it to work on Windows OS with emulator, will be a great 2nd nav. program.

Update: losing a star b/c it crashes. Recovery is to delete & reinstal Have been running this app on my phone and tablet for over a year. It is a MUST HAVE for navigating the AICW! The Army Corps of Engineers does frequent surveys that are quickly posted to the Aqua Map charts, and are later posted to the official NOAA charts. The upgrade to Aqua Map Master allows real time display of NMEA 2000 instruments (depth sounder, AIS, etc.). Unfortunately the upgrade is only available on a subscription.
