Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
WaterNav North West (one of a set of 10 regional apps covering Great Britain) is the definitive waterway guide and map for the North West of England for boaters, ramblers, cyclists, etc. - but don't worry, it does NOT tell you to "Turn around where possible"!
Suitable for iPhone (version 4 or later), iPad (2 or later) and iPad Mini, WaterNav apps provide an enormous amount of really useful, easy to access, information and make use of Smartphone GPS (see notes below) to show everything relative to where you are. The canal maps display thousands of continually updated points of interest (such as pubs, shops, vets, diesel, moorings, etc), as well as all the waterway information such as locks, bridges, turning points, etc. These are the essential towpath companions for boaters, ramblers, cyclists or anyone else enjoying the waterways.
Please note: wifi only iPads will NOT display your location if no wifi connected.
An essential feature of the Apps is that they are off-line, so there’s no interruption due to the poor Internet connection on the canals!
