Get access to all savvy charts, wherever we have coverage. Our sailing maps have been custom-built using quality data from NOAA, UKHO and other hydrographic offices around the world to provide easy and safe sailing navigation - like a chart plotter in your pocket.

View tidal heights and tidal current or streams on our tide chart. Scroll through the tidal graph to see changes in tidal highs and lows over time.

Use the weather forecast graph to scroll through days and times to see the effect on weather conditions, wind strength and direction. Use the wind icon to see a visual overlay of wind barbs!

Use boat tracking to hone in on your boat GPS location, see your course over ground (COG) and view your speed over ground (SOG). savvy navvy is essentially your nautical GPS giving you a compass heading to steer with a tide calculation!

Plot a sailing route in seconds with an automatic course to steer. Drop a pin to indicate your start and finish points and savvy navvy will quickly plot a route to sail taking into account wind, chart and tidal data.

1. Drop a pin at your start and finish locations
2. Calculate your route
3. Preview your route and get an Estimated Time of Arrival
4. Export your route for use with your chart plotter

Marine navigation made easy! Plot your route with savvy navvy and then export the GPX file for use with your chart plotter. Boating navigation couldn’t be easier!

Import your saved markers from other apps, including Navionics, C-MAP, iNavX and even from your chart plotter.
Quickly and easily upload your saved locations (using a .gpx file) into your savvy navvy app.
Ensure your valuable data continues to enhance your boating experience.

I boat on the Lake of the Ozarks and I need to see landmarks, businesses, points of interest and similar. Some lakefront business can't be found or the names are wrong. Some addresses can't be found. Navigation is OK but the waypoints are on the shoreline. Literally. I can't see myself using this app regularly nor do I see any value in upgrading to the paid version. I need to save locations, not routes.

Hey Jeffrey - if you long hold on the chart anywhere, you can drop and save a pin on that location. You can then rename it and easily navigate back to it. You can also import saved points from older and less intuitive apps.... ;-) That all works in the free version of the app.

I used to have the "Elite" subscription (just cancelled it). The app is very slow and clunky. The routing sometimes spins forever for no reason. I've been trying to download offline charts for hours and it never completes. I tried contacting support: no response. I'm giving it 2 stars, because if app works, it's very nice. I hoped that the problems I saw those 2 years ago when I started subscription will be removed. It's still the same poor UX. A real pity that quality is such a low priority.

Hi Michal - thank you for working with us over the years and of course we're sorry to see you go. We're working right now on the issues you highlight and making big changes to the app platform, functionality and features. Please do check back in as within a few weeks the points you raise will have been fixed.

Meh... It's the best app I found but I resent the huge price increase to change screen color for night mode. That's kind of a "screw you" to their customers. Data is fair at best. And of course you have to use cell service so you can end up on the rocks real quick if not paying attention. Nothing can be done about that but it is very limiting.

Hi Mike - thanks for taking the time to leave feedback. Most of our users are day sailors, hence putting night view on higher subscription plans. You also get off-line charts and weather in both Explore and Elite and so don't have to worry about losing cell coverage. David
