A clearly structured navigation app with intuitive and comprehensive tools for navigation on board. All boating charts or maps from NV Verlag / NV Charts can be easily downloaded and used for offline navigation with the NV Charts App. All NV Verlag / NV Charts nautical boating charts or inland charts including | North Sea | Baltic Sea | Netherlands | Wadden Sea | IJsselmeer | Sweden | Denmark | Germany | Norway | France | USA | Caribbean | Bahamas areas are compatible with NV Charts App.

One way to have great nautical charts both on paper and on our phone or tablet is to use our popular combination pack of paper and digital nautical charts, which includes both charts in clever atlas format and digital nautical marine boating charts/maps for use in the NV Charts app, including a one-year update service. But you can also purchase digital boating charts as a subscription directly in the NV Charts App. The subscription duration is one year and is automatically extended. The advantage: your boating charts are always up to date in the app.
If it is not yet clear where the journey is going to take you, free online charts can be displayed for all NV Charts nautical chart areas in the app.

The latest information is essential for safe navigation on the water. With the new version of the NV Charts App 2020 you have the possibility to become part of the chart community. You can now add marinas, anchorages and navigation warnings to the digital chart and also add and share interesting places beyond navigation, such as restaurants or points of interest with pictures. Others can respond directly with comments. The continuously edited content can be downloaded directly to be available offline. 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.

Together navigation on board is even more fun! You can now share your tracks with friends or use the data outside the app and export it as GPX file. You can share your favorite harbors and anchorages from the app simply by clicking on a link and coordinate your trip planning even better with everyone.

With the AIS function in the NV Charts App you can keep an eye on AIS signals in real-time. You can connect a Wlan AIS receiver to the NV Charts and the app display AIS Class A and B signals and navigation aids (ATON), as well as MOB AIS SART transponder distress transmitters, directly in the digital chart in real-time and the traffic situation can be assessed better.

The NV Charts App can be installed and synchronized on multiple devices.

kshillyer ,

Good companion to paper charts

I like the wind forecast overlay, very useful.

saltybazz ,

Really good resource

Easy to use paper and electronic charts, with good detail in most areas

I am not a number 5331 ,

Poor value considering how out of date the charts are

Charts of poor resolution that are three years out of date are pretty poor value at £43.99 star when I can get fully updated full ENC charts for the same area for a comparable amount from official providers. The erratic and confusing interface also is not conducive to safe and efficient use.
