Best for inland waterway routing! Please note, that some rivers and seas might not be included yet. Please use the contact form inside the app menu (report error at the bottom) to request a new waterway, and we will implement them as soon as possible.

NavShip is a free navigation assistance software for nautic usage in Europe, Canada and the United States. It uses an special overlay for google maps or open sea map to show shipping signs and contains by now more than 250.000 waterways.

No problem to get from A to B, even if there's an ocean between you and your target. London - Rome, Paris - Amsterdam, Copenhagen - Stockholm, Frankfurt - Istanbul, Chicago - Toronto, nearly every route can be calculated.

NavShip needs access to device's storage to work properly. It never accesses your private data or contacts.

WEAR OS: NavShip provides a Wear OS App for Smartwatches. You can easily connect with live routing on your app. Calculate a route on your smartphone and view your current speed, course offset, distance and travel time via smartwatch. Even the next bridge or lock will be displayed.
