WaterNav North West
by: River Canal Rescue • 12
WaterNav North West is the definitive guide and map for the waterways of the North West of England for boaters, ramblers and cyclists.
ONLY SUITABLE FOR COMPATIBLE ANDROID DEVICES: requires Android 2.3.6 or later; also at least 11.8 Mb of AVAILABLE internal (RAM) memory plus an additional minimum 1.3 GigaBytes of either internal memory or on external SD card. Please note that continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
WaterNav apps operate 'off-line' and contain considerable amounts of valuable data, so PLEASE make sure your device is compliant before trying to download. DO NOT try to download using 3G; download requires a wifi connection since once installed and on opening, the app will then download the maps which can take up to 30 minutes.
WaterNav apps provide an enormous amount of really useful, easy to access, information and make use of Smartphone GPS to show everything relative to where you are. The maps display thousands of continually updated points of interest (such as pubs, shops, vets, diesel, moorings, etc), as well as all the waterway information such as locks, bridges, turning points, etc. These are the essential towpath companions for boaters, ramblers, cyclists or anyone else enjoying the waterways.
WaterNav apps consist of regional Apps, covering the whole of Great Britain. An essential feature of the Apps is that they are off-line, so thereís no interruption due to the poor Internet connection on the canals!
