savvy navvy has surpassed 1,000,000 downloads across the globe and offers a revolutionary, easy-to-use app that brings everything you need for a seamless boating experience, all in one place. Built from the ground up using official hydrographic data, savvy navvy solves many on-water navigation issues for boaters, kayakers, paddleboarders and jet-skiers with a routing algorithm using wind, weather, tides, and boat settings to route users to their destination in the fastest, safest route available.
The leading boating navigation app – often referred to as ‘Google maps for boats’ – rolled out its new and improved V2 of the app earlier this boating season with popular new and enhanced features such as navigation mode, anchor alarm upgrade, clouds and rain overlay and wind gust features.
