Ahoy dear water sports enthusiasts!

Gemeinsam macht Navigation an Bord noch mehr Spaß!

Together, navigation on board is even more fun!
For the boating season 2020 we have again provided a large update for the NV Charts App and a fantastic highlight is the possibility to become part of the charting community yourself. You can now add your favourite harbours and anchorages with pictures and share them with the community. Other users can react directly with comments. The continuously edited content can be downloaded directly to be available offline. This makes the NV Charts app uniquely well integrated navigation and planing on board.

Enjoy the NV Charts Web App online in your browser now for planning your next trip or exploring a new area.

In order to make all information easily accessible, we have improved the search function: You can explore the surroundings and search directly for place names as well as anchorages, harbours, ramps, waypoints, cranes, petrol stations, or tide stations. In addition, an auto-routing function has been integrated, which allows you to navigate directly to your destination.

Have great fun on the water and especially while discovering the new app features!
Your NV Team

The new auto-routing

The auto-routing allows en even easier route planning, taking the ship’s data into account. Destinations can be added or individual sections can be routed manually.
In addition, waypoints can be easily transferred to the paper chart (via the coordinates) or vice versa. This is not only for safety reasons and will of course practice all your practical navigation tallents, it is also a great opportunity to check the route in detail and discuss it with everyone on board.

*Auto-routing is currently available for our series of the Netherlands, the German North Sea and the Baltic Sea. Other areas will follow soon.
