About this app

Best for inland waterway routing! Please note, that some rivers and seas might not be included yet. Please use the contact form inside the app menu (report error at the bottom) to request a new waterway, and we will implement them as soon as possible.

Free version: Up to 40 km (25 miles) route planning and 8 km tracking. We use advertisement in free version. Unfortunately, this app does not contain water depths.

NavShip is a free navigation assistance software for nautic usage in Europe, Canada and the United States. It uses an special overlay for google maps or open sea map to show shipping signs and contains by now more than 250.000 waterways.

No problem to get from A to B, even if there's an ocean between you and your target. London - Rome, Paris - Amsterdam, Copenhagen - Stockholm, Frankfurt - Istanbul, Chicago - Toronto, nearly every route can be calculated.

NavShip needs access to device's storage to work properly. It never accesses your private data or contacts.

WearOS: NavShip provides a WearOS App for Smartwatches. You can easily connect with live routing on your app, please enable this functionality in side menu at "settings" and "WearOS support". Calculate a route on your smartphone and view your current speed, course offset, distance and travel time via smartwatch. Even the next bridge or lock will be displayed.

Couldn't try routing until I purchased premium version. When I did the Gulf of Mexico and Florida rivers and coast are not supported to route. App is useless for me. Also tried to contact support, but that isn't working as well. Keeps telling me that my comments are spam , but won''t download the reCAPTCHA to allow submittal. After hearing from the developers it becomes clear that they are sincerely trying to make this the best app possible. I was offered a refund and also asked what I would desire of the app to keep it. The developers are working to add certain aspects to the app and need feedback from people (especially in the U.S.) as what they would like to see added to the program. Thanks NavShip

Please do not try to contact our support via website but via mail: support@navship.org. There is no coastal support for north america. NavShip is an app for river routing. There is a list of all supported waterways on https://navship.org/en/area-coverage/ There you can see: No rivers for florida. Please write a mail and we will find a solution.

Cool app, helps with navigating freely. But movable bridges are not marked, and some connections from lakes to canals or canals to rivers are not marked. Therefore a direct route calculation is quite unreliable. But still a useful app to use next to paper maps.

Hallo Julia, wir erfassen jetzt in der Wintersaison sehr viele Daten nach, die noch unser Augenmerk erfordern. Man darf also auf die nächste Saison gespannt sein. Vielen Dank für dein Feedback Chris
