The latest Navily update includes an important new navigation functionality! Thanks to our partner savvy navvy, we’re now able to offer free automatic itinerary calculations.
Make sure you update your Navily app to take advantage of this new feature!
At Navily our number one goal is to facilitate navigation for sailors around the world. Over the past 6 years Navily has helped users locate anchorages, book boat slips and share invaluable information. Today we’re the most active digital cruising guide in Europe thanks to your contributions!
You’ve discovered new destinations from secluded anchorages to bustling ports. Now let’s help you navigate with greater ease! Our top pick for this task was a no-brainer. Savvy navvy is a boating app that specialises in automatic route planning. Think of it like Google Maps, but for sailors. Drop a pin for your start and finish locations and savvy navvy will plot the best route to sail, taking into account wind, chart and tidal data, in seconds on any device. Put simply, navigation has never been so easy.
Thanks to our partnership with savvy navvy, we’ve integrated their solution on Navily. Itineraries calculated on Navily are based on official nautical charts and take into account your boat draft. You can easily calculate the distance and itinerary between two points. The itinerary displayed on the map allows you to easily see each step of your route, with details on the heading and distance between each of the waypoints. This new functionality is still in beta mode, so give it a go and let us know what you think! And if you want to discover the power of full-weather routing, checkout savvy navvy’s website.
