River Canal Rescue has reduced the data consumption of its waterways app and added new functions allowing users to simultaneously view different regions.

The beta-version of the app will be launched at Crick Boat Show with boat owners able to trial the modified software for free until the end of August.

Users were previously restricted to an average of two maps before using all their phones’ storage and had to close down one before opening another.

The company believes it is the only one to develop a countrywide route planning app, currently available via its WaterNav PC software.

“When we took over Eureaweb’s inland navigation products and rebranded them WaterNav in August 2016, we wanted to enhance their functionality,” explained RCR MD Stephanie Horton. “These latest developments, while a huge leap forward, are only the start of what we plan to achieve – by the end of the year we hope to launch the Apple version and we’re already working on an online portal.”

Other changes include introducing route planning tools, adding an SOS function and the ability to update and feedback dynamically on Points of Interest.
