The app is generally good, the auto routing feature worked well for me. I wouldn't want to navigate the Netherlands without it. There are some factual errors. One bridge height was incorrect. One new bridge was missing. One bridge was noted as closed, but was open and there was no contact information for the bridge, and no way to comment on the bridge information. Auto routing didn't recognize the closure. Routing underestimated transit times for my slow boat, we should be able to set speed

Hey Nick, If you send us a mail on support@waterkaarten.app, we love to hear which information was wrong. We can also explain how you can report that through the app. Thousands of people do that and we update information every week.

Non functional routing basicly the map and info of almanac part 2. No live warnings of issues like blocked waterways etc. Additional comment 2 years later: the app requires access to the Facebook track& trace systems only visible after installing and inspecting with classyshark. Unbelievable anwb supports the Facebook sellout of personal data. Pity I can't assign zero stars.

Sthe spp sore tells it's a free app. Nothing is true of that. You get a 7 day free trial. After that you MUST pay to continiue to use it. Kinda a bummer if you ask me. Also worth to note, inly the UK, NL, BE &DE maps are included. The rest of Europe probably has no nautical traffic...
