KnowWake uses crowdsourcing to see and share things like hazards, marine life, police and other important information in real-time:

· Wake zones - Simplified, color-coded waterways
· NOAA Channel Markers, Buoys & Beacons
· Anchor Alarm - get an alert of you move outside of a pre-determined area
· Virtual Dive Flag - ALERT other vessel there are swimmers in the water
· Routing - Point to point waterway routing with distance to location
· Depth - See current location depth or anywhere on the chart
· Location sharing - Share location with a single person, group or everyone
· Vessel Tracks - Leave tracks along the way to see or share later
· Offline mode - Use KnowWake anywhere, even with bad service
· Augmented reality - See what's ahead including distance and direction to all KnowWake points of interest
· SOS button, Safety Checklists and Float Plans

Sharing your favorite trips and locations with friends and groups is easier than ever. Simply click the share button and choose who you want to share with - they'll receive a message and a link that takes them right to the spot you shared. This feature is perfect to re-trace steps, show friends how to get somewhere or just share your adventures for others to follow along!

The updated SOS system is our newest super-cool feature to make the water safer. Send an SOS to the community OR rescue services with a short message and your location. Anyone within 7 miles gets a message and everyone on the chart can see your location that updates every 30 seconds. This will create a drift path showing where you started and the direction you are moving - this will help establish a search grid if service or communication is lost. Rescuers and the community can also easily message, route to you directly or share the SOS with someone else on KnowWake.

Adding to the chart is easy and helps everyone. Whether you are adding a real-time waterway report, adding a missing point or editing an existing one - you can help the community and keep the chart current and accurate with local knowledge!

Thank you to all the KnowWakers that have helped grow and keep KnowWake accurate everyday - see everyone on the water!!

Just downloaded apo, hoping to have ability to pick a destination and have app provide suggested route, based on current/provided start poit. However, only seems to have ability to track/save a route. Wish I could obtain directions, like Waze. Thanks for the update/quick response. I'll certainly try the YouTube video, and circle back with any follow-up questions.

Hi Robert, KnowWake DOES have routing, just like WAZE! Every point of interest has a ROUTE button that will guide you through deep-water OR you can drop a pin anywhere on the chart and get directions directly to it. Please connect at info@knowwake.com for more help and see the tutorial how here: https://youtube.com/shorts/--FGtoKEQLE?feature=share

Lots of improvements have been made since last review. Still needs to be able to add points on the desktop interface. It looks like there is the beginnings of the functionality, but there is no "pin" indicated on the desktop map to then add that point, It adds the point at my current location only. The phone app does not have this problem - it shows the pin. Need to filter for any single, or multiple, locations. For example - only fuel, or only ramps, etc, or both. Need ability to locate via pasting a gps string into the search, and then map goes to that point, so that I can then add that point. I know some fuel location by gps, and having to hunt on the map is cumbersome. You have done a great service to us all with this app. Keep up with the mods. For us boat travelers, Fuel, Ramps, Marinas. restaurants with dockage etc, on the water stuff is so needed.

If this app could do a better job with point-to-point routing it would outstrip every other boating/kayaking/canoeing app out there. Right now there isn't a single app that does everything kayakers need. This one has potential, but it isn't there yet. Keeping my fingers crossed!
