Don't think it exists. There's nothing on Garmin's website about it. AFAIK Homeport is only available for PC & Mac.

Well, i know you can have windows on a Android platform right?? that is the first step.....and then you can add Garmin Homeport to run under Windows....just a suggestion because i did not try it myself yet...so let us know if you can have it working...
I do know even moving Garmin Homeport from one laptop to the other can be a pain in the ....It is not so expensive to buy aonther version but i rather spend the money on fuel so i can go full throtlle

You can also send >Garmin an email with your request....
hope it will work out just fine for you

Guys, thanks for the reply's

I think its daft and a bit outdated that you can't get Homeport on a tablet so I have emailed Garmin as per suggestions and will post a reply if I get one?

Garmin response

Well, just got an email response from Garmin

"Thank you for your email.


HomePort is only available for PC and MAC. We have developed an app for IOS devies, iPad, iPhones, the app is called Blue Chart Mobile. I'm afraid that there are no plans to release this on Android operating systems."

I have just defected from Apple products so this is no use to me

Thanks for your help anyway everybody
