Thanks to River Canal Res­cue we’re de­lighted to of­fer all Canal Boat readers a free mov­ing map app this month. RCR has re­cently taken over Eureauweb’s two highly suc­cess­ful in­land wa­ter­way nav­i­ga­tion prod­ucts, e-canalmapp Apps and the Water-Way PC/Lap­top/Net­book sys­tems, re­brand­ing them as WaterNav.

You can plan/track your route, pin­point your ex­act lo­ca­tion us­ing GPS, find thou­sands of points of in­ter­est, in­clud­ing mooring lo­ca­tions and nav­i­ga­tion de­tails, locks and bridges, pump-outs, diesel and gas, places to eat and drink, doc­tors, vets and den­tists, shops, laun­drettes, bus stops and train sta­tions. Clicking on a point of in­ter­est will pull out vis­i­tor in­for­ma­tion and con­tact de­tails from a reg­u­larly up­dated data­base.

A trip-track­ing func­tion en­ables you to record the dis­tance and time it has taken to travel, plus there’s a log­book that au­to­mat­i­cally en­ters the date, time and lo­ca­tion. Users can then add their own nar­ra­tive and pho­tos.

What’s more, the new prod­ucts pro­vide a com­bined in­for­ma­tion sys­tem and sat­nav for all the in­land wa­ter­ways in the UK yet they don’t re­quire a per­ma­nent in­ter­net con­nec­tion (other than for down­load­ing) be­cause the maps are stored on your de­vice.

RCR has been us­ing a cus­tomised ver­sion of the Water-Way soft­ware for many years to lo­cate and re­spond to stricken boaters, and the team was so im­pressed they ne­go­ti­ated with Eureauweb for the Wa­ter­way soft­ware and App side of the busi­ness. The Apps will con­tinue to re­tail at £ 5.99 per re­gion, but the UK-wide Win­dows PC/Lap­top/Net­book soft­ware will only cost £49.

To get your free app for the York­shire Ouse, the sub­ject of this month’s Cruise Guide, all you need to do is go to river­canal­res­cue.co.uk, en­ter your mag­a­zine’s in­di­vid­ual code from the leaflet in the mag­a­zine and then down­load it; us­ing the pro­mo­tional code (you will also get other re­gions and the full soft­ware at a dis­counted rate). We think you’ll like it.

T& Cs: In­di­vid­ual pur­chase of the mag­a­zine or a cur­rent sub­scrip­tion to Canal Boat is re­quired to down­load the app, one down­load per pur­chaser.
