Nautical Maps user reviews :

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[at], 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.

This is a great app (probably the best one) for navigation in The Nederlands. It provides much more valuable information than the paper version of the ANWB waterkaart. For maximum benefit I recommend the use of a tablet, rather than a smartphone, because the larger screen area provides for the better overview. The most valuable feature is the indication of one’s own position within the map, which is made possible by means of the location services of the tablet or smartphone. Because I travel frequently to the Nederlands for boating vacation, I decided for a yearly subscription.

  • Wow. Thanks for this positive and valuable feedback. And thanks for becoming a loyal customer also

Fantastic app for sailing or boating in the Netherlands and hopefully soon Belgium, France, Germany, Denmark – it provides all information like bridge opening times, issues, overview, special regulations – one stop map – only thing I use – one minor thing is name in Netherlands is Waterkaarten app and when you have English android app setting is hard to find…
