Sorry, this may sound a silly question but I was not able to find an answer.

 

I have a Dobson and a Nexus II. At the moment, I run SkySafari on Mac. I just bought a new Android phone.

 

Question: can I link SkySafari and my Nexus II using SkySafari on Android, exactly as in the Mac version?

 

On the support page (here: https://support.simu...cope-Setup-Help) they say that I need SkyFi, SkyWire, bluetooth or a Celestron wifi scope.....

 

Before spending 16€ for the app, I just want to be sure it will works.

 

The phone is an Android One, so a very clean software (Mi A3).

SkySafari 6 on Android does work, please review the Nexus II / SkySafari instructions at Astro Devices:

I can confirm that this works -- I use Sky Safari 6 for Android with my Nexus II via wi-fi, and it works perfectly fine.
