I use Savvy Navvy daily for all my inshore fishing here in south Texas. Great for current conditions, including tides and wind direction. It’s like Google maps for boaters. Plan routes, mark your fishing spots and return to the dock in one piece. Every time! Great App 5 stars.

2 weeks ago during the heatwave, we were on the Solent and the temperature fried all our instruments including the GPS plotter. Thank god we had Savvy Navvy as it worked perfectly for the entire weekend and allowed us to do everything we wanted. People say these kind of apps aren’t meant to replace the instruments on board, well I can confirm that when they instruments on board all fail, this was an absolute lifesaver. Can’t wait to test it in other countries.

Great and simple to use

I sail with friends and families and this app is a great way to illustrate “dads” boring chart work through a much more teenage friendly platform. I use both for cross reference and find it pretty accurate. Considering the price of charts it is extremely good value. – Mar 9, 2023

Kayak GPS Tracking

If you’re looking for a kayak or canoe GPS tracker you’ve come to the right place. Using the GPS on your phone savvy navvy will display your live location, position and speed. Easily measure the distance between you and points of interest around you.

record routes

Recorded Routes

In ‘GPS Mode’ you can also choose to record and save your route. This is a great safety feature to ensure you can always find your way home, take the same route again another time or, even better, show your friends where you’ve been whilst off-grid!

Kayak Tide Data

Because no one ever said they loved to paddle against the tide! View a tidal graph displaying tidal highs and lows throughout the day as well as a tidal stream overlay on the digital chart. Tap anywhere on the chart whilst in ‘Tides’ to view the tide speed and direction for any given location. Savvy navvy sourced tidal data from over 8,000 tidal stations around the world.

kayak weather forecast app

Kayak Weather Forecast

It’s no fun getting stuck out on the water when the weather turns bad but you don’t want to turn back unless it’s necessary. That’s why savvy navvy provides a multi-day canoe weather forecast that shows wind strength and direction, temperature and changeability. Take the app with you to quickly check the weather updates throughout the day.

Share Routes

If you like to go kayaking with friends then why not share your route with them. When you plot a route with savvy navvy we give you the option to share the route with a link, so everyone can adventure together! If you prefer kayaking alone, this tool can also be a handy safety backup for sharing your plans with someone ashore so they know where you’re going and when to expect you back.

satellite mode

Explore Further with Satellite Mode

Ever ask yourself, “where are good places to kayak near me? And, “what’s an ideal place for a kayak launch?” Why not use satellite mode in the savvy app to take a closer look at lochs, rivers, bays and other secluded locations to find the best places to kayak.
