FAQs Marine&Lakes - Android phone
Q. I own several Marine & Lakes Apps and the new Navionics Boating app. Can I merge them into one app?
A. No, app titles cannot be merged, nor can existing coverage be transferred between app titles.
A. No. Navionics apps for iPhone/iPad are specifically designed to work for devices with iOS. Navionics also develops apps designed for the Android OS.
Q.What should I do if I realize that my Android phone does not have enough memory to host the map that I have just purchased?
A. If you don't have enough space in your phone to download the Navionics Mobile apps, the phone will notify you of this. You will need to free space in your phone.
A. The Navionics Mobile app size may vary between 25MB and 44MB and is stored in the application internal memory of your Android Device. On the other side, the detailed maps can take up several GB depending on the areas you download. The downloaded charts are stored in the internal memory (in some cases to the SD memory) of your device. We recommend checking to see if you have enough space on your Android device internal memory (and SD) before proceeding with the purchase/download.
A. To download the Navionics Mobile app to your Android device, you must meet the following criteria: 1. You must be running an operating system of 2.3.3 or higher. 2. You must have enough space on your device internal memory.

Detailed charts can take up to several Gigabytes on the device's internal memory (or SD memory). 3. You must have a credit card and a Google Checkout account set up. 4. You must have a strong Wi-Fi connection to download the app to the Android device.
Q. I don't have a micro SD card, but have a lot of memory in my Android device. Why doesn't the app download?
A. The Navionics apps are made of two parts: apps and charts. The app downloads from the Android market to your internal device's memory. The charts download from the Navionics server to the device internal memory (in some cases to the SD memory) at the first access to the app. We recommend checking to see if you have enough space on your Android device internal memory (and SD) before proceeding with the purchase/download.
A. They are all stored in the Android's memory. Markers and Routes are stored in the application data (a reserved memory which can only be accessed by the application, and thus not accessible to the user). Tracks are stored in the device memory.
