    just for info I have the old 2.0 version which crashed, so I installed the new free HD version, ran the free version, then uninstalled free version and all is working again in version 2.0, I assume free version fixed some files, but not sure.

    Has any one got the latest Asia map? I got 4.1.1 but it works only with root and I could not get tide and current to work for some reason?

    Since this thread is one of the first results google finds when looking for a fix for the older Navionics app crashing on Android KitKat and newer firmware, I'm posting my findings here.

    The cause for the crash is the fact that Google deprecated the ARGB_4444 bitmap configuration that is used by the Navionics app and with KitKat and later the app actually receives an ARGB_8888 bitmap. (
    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    )

    Navionics could easily fix the crash, but why should they support paying customers, when they can force those customers to pay for the same thing again.

    These are the steps needed to create a fixed APK of the old Navionics app:

    1. You need to get the old crashing APK from somewhere. A rooted device with the app installed is probably the easiest way.
    2. Download APK Studio (
    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    )
    3. Decompile the APK into an editable project
    4. Find the file that uses an ARGB_4444 bitmap (smali/it/navionics/map/NMapView.smali)
    5. Replace ARGB_4444 with RGB_565
    6. Recompile the project into a new APK

    You should now have a fixed version of the Navionics app.

    This fix does have the side effect of messing with the colors of the map, but I can live with pink land Fixing the colours would require someone writing a block of Smali-code for converting each pixel of the image, but in my opinion this would be a waste of both CPU-time and battery on the device. Navionics of course could fix this properly since they have the source code for whatever native(?) implementation it is that creates the pixels in the first place.

    My Navionics app is called "Baltic Sea" and the package name is "it.navionics.scandinaviaE". I'm pretty sure the other geographical areas use the same app and only the name and package change.

    I've got a very funny problem on my Galaxy S running Navionics versions higher than 3.x. The app seems to work, but I can't see any details when I zoom in on coastlines. However, I can download maps for a selected area. Anyone having the same issue with older smartphones (I'm running Cyanogenmod 11, that is KitKat).
