Dock-to-dock Autorouting

Dock-to-dock Autorouting

A unique breakthrough

All autorouting existing today can find a route from A to B only if they are both in open water, while good guidance and planning is most needed in cramped complex waterways with a maze of variables.
A unique breakthrough in boating navigation, Navionics Dock-to-dock Autorouting, instead, quickly calculates a detailed route, even through narrow passages and channels, based on chart data and navigation aids.

What you can do

Plan your route

Choose your destination by selecting a point of interest, entering a lat/long or by tapping on the map. Dock-to-dock Autorouting quickly calculates a detailed route. However, always keep in mind that automatically calculated routes do not replace safe navigation practices and should never be your only reference.

View details

You can see your estimated fuel consumption, distance and ETA.

Observe precautions

Suggested routes even highlight precautions along the way for shallow water and other hazards.

Automatic points of interest

On the Boating app, find points of interest (POIs) nearby the destination, like the harbor master, marinas and moorings, fuel stations, restaurants and bars, shops, taxis & launch services, repairs, and dealers. They appear automatically within the Autorouting menu, complete with phone numbers and other valuable information like VHF channels for marinas.
