The chart plotter with AIS for inland waters. Rivers & Seas is the iPad navigation system for your boat:
DETAILED WATERS MAPS
Rivers and waterways are listed in detail with buoys, clearances, landmarks, ports and anchorages. In addition landscape, roads and buildings provide orientation. Marinas are shown with piers and service facilities such as gas stations and black water extraction.
VHF channels, phone numbers and opening times of locks and bridges ahead are displayed automatically when driving. You will get a warning if a bridge clearance is too low or a lock will be closed upon arrival.
The display of speed, heading and position also includes the speed limit at the current route segment. Your location is named with river kilometer and name of the river, lake or bay.
SHIP POSITIONS AIS (In App Subscription)
Position of ships with AIS is shown in the map. Ships on the waterway ahead are displayed in the left panel with name , course and speed. No AIS receiver is needed for that.
Planned routes can be drawn and used as a guide line for the ride. Rivers & Seas calculates length and travel time of the route. The drawing tool is ideal for routes along winding waterways and chains of lakes.
The planned routes are also ideal on boating holidays for remembering and following the recommendation of a charter basis.
DESTINATIONS AND BOOKMARKS
Rivers & Seas predicts distance and travel time to destinations on the waterway that you mark with pins. The passage time and opening times of locks or bridges are included in the calculation.
Routes and areas can be downloaded. Under way or abroad no internet connection is required. Only the areas needed on the route are loaded, without needless land areas.
CLERANCES, OPENING HOURS AND SPEED LIMITS
Bridges and locks on the waterway ahead are displayed in a list with clearances, opening hours, VHF channels and phone numbers along with the distance and remaining driving time to get there. If bridges are to low or locks will be closed upon arrival, a warning is displayed.
Even the location of your friends or flotilla is shown in the map. Find anchor position of friends to easily or keep an eye on the distance to the boots of an a convoy with the Friends Radar.
Search for waters, places, addresses, coordinates and even facilities such as marinas, shops or ATMs.
