An additional source of information in the Boating app

The Boating app now hosts a bigger crowd to share their experiences on the water. In fact, with Community Edits, the app already allows users to view local information — constantly revised and enhanced — shared by other users. Now, it also includes information from the ActiveCaptain® Community at Garmin

More data, more reviews, more fun
Users of our Boating app are now able to have an additional source of information by ActiveCaptain® boaters, who passionately share their experience. It is a diverse and large set of POIs, such as marinas, anchorages, hazards, businesses, boat ramps, bridges, dams, inlets, locks and more. It’s easy to access and includes plenty of detailed information to explore, such as phone numbers and VHF channels for marinas.

ActiveCaptain® Community POIs in the Boating app  
> View them on the map by simply zooming in
> Look for them with the “Search tool”
> Use them as start and destination point while creating a route
> Find them automatically displayed near the destination, after a route is calculated with Dock-to-dock Autorouting
