Maybe I am in the wrong forum area but i will give this a try anyway.
I downloaded an aviation sectional chart for aviation and it is in TIFF image format. It opens up OK, but It appears that it does not want to zoom in all the way in order for me to see the data on there. I also tried renaming it to JPG, and does the same thing. When I try to zoom in, I'm unable to see the data on there and I cannot zoom in to the maximum.
I do have ES-File Explorer on there and no luck. And the built-in Gallery image viewer. Its an HTC Desire phone.
Just wish to look at these charts while I am on the road before I go flying.

I think you need an app for best viewing. Naviator has had ok reviews. But I'm not a pilot (I do flight test planning though...).
I do not yet see foreflight and some of the other iPad based apps for Android. Yet. I doubt Apple will license to integrate a tablet into the aircraft, so I expect integrated solutions to be either proprietary or Android based.

If all you're after is viewing the chart, OpenFlight Map does just that. You can download low enroutes, sectionals, and WACs. It's very basic, and if you're wanting any more than a glorified image viewer, something like Naviator (subscription based, but more along the lines of what ForeFlight is to iOS) or NavZilla (free, but not a FAA-published chart viewer) would be better.
