Here are the steps if anyone's interested:

1. Download google earth pro (its free) on your pc / mac
2. Save an image to overlay on the map. I googled something like "bodega bay depth map" and took a screen shot of one of the results
2: Add an image overlay to google earth as outlined here:
3. Download the google earth app on your mobile device
4. Send the overlay file to save and open on your mobile device as outlined here (Source: https://support.google.com/earth/thread/32919258/how-to-view-image-overlay-on-mobile-app?hl=en):

"Make your overlay in Google Earth Pro.  Make sure you have the file checked so it's visible.  Right click on the file in My Places and select 'Save Place As...'.  Save a .kmz (not .kml) to your hard drive.  Transfer the file to your Android device by email or Google Drive."

5. Enjoy!

I really dislike how every paid app has to be a subscription. A simple Overlay ain't no justifiable SaaSy Service right here! I'm quite pleased with the workaround! Within google earth I can navigate with gps, drop and save pins, measure distances, and it works on my phone or my ~decade old spare tablet even with no wifi / data connection. I might even buy a waterproof case.
