The Erie Canal is a navigable channel in New York, connecting Albany on the Hudson River to Buffalo and Lake Erie. This 338 miles waterway is now used for recreational boating and links many historical towns on the north of the state.

The app shows on the state map the main navigation route, the location of locks, guard gates, lift bridges and moorings along the canal as well as some well known biking trails nearby.

Users can plot their location on the map and share it with family, friends and other users. Integration with the Maps app allows users to get detailed directions to reach docks and marinas by car.

On iPhones, the app allows users to call lockstations and marinas along the canal.

Warning : this app does not replace specialized publications and nautical charts. Not for navigation !

Note from Apple : Continued use of GPS can dramatically decrease battery life.

Little, if any, useful info...

Site pins do not direct you to info a boater negotiating the canal would need - in many cases you're redirected to the website of a boat whose owners extensively photographed the canal. Probably interesting to an armchair traveler, but of little use to actual boaters...
