Compatibility

See Android compatibility notes.

Initial Setup

  • Because you are installing an app from a location other than the Google Play store, you need to enable Installing apps from unknown sources. See these Instructions.
  • Install a file manager such as File Manager ES, if you do not already have one.

Download

Download the current version of SEAiq Pilot for Android.

Installation

There are several methods to install the app.

  • On some Android devices, you may be able to install SEAiq directly from the Android web browser.
  • Visit this location on your device to and tap on SEAiq_XXXX_Android.apk file to start downloading.
  • If asked, choose to download using your file manager and wait for the download to complete.
  • Using your file manager select the file and choose to install it on your device.

Activate Enterprise Account

Activate your Enterprise account by copying your account activation file into into the Documents/SEAiq folder using your file manager. Then go to the Files tab in SEAiq Pilot and press the Import button next to the file.

Installing Charts

If you use charts from NOAA, PRIMAR, or Chartworld, you can use the built-in chart download and update features. You can install new charts in the Documents/SEAiq folder using your file manager app.

Troubleshooting

There are an enormous variety of Android devices. We have found some devices require special graphics support. If you find the chart display has issues, please try the following settings:

  • Settings / Display / Disable Graphics Framebuffer
  • Settings / Display / Disable Graphics Anti-Aliasing
  • Settings / Display / Disable Graphics Point Sprites
If adjusting these do not address your issue, please contact us (support@seaiq.com). Be sure to include information about the specific model of Android device and screenshot(s) showing the problem.
