NOTE that KayakNav has been removed from the Apple App Store

We are planning a new release of this app developed using Swift and using Apple Maps. The map server had to be taken off-line and it was felt that despite the cached maps it should be removed until the new version could be provided. This will be a free upgrade for any existing installations. Please check back again for updates in 2020.

KayakNav is an iOS App written for the iPhone, iPad and iPad mini that provides real-time navigation for kayakers.

Overview KayakNav is designed to assist with navigation and training in your Kayak. Just plot your path on GoogleEarth and email yourself the KMZ file. KayakNav will load up the points, optimise the path and calculate all the statistics required to track your paddling.

It provides a virtual training partner to help you maintain pace in both time trials and marathons.

For marathons and long open water treks, provides a coloured compass with optimised path targeting to minimise your total paddle distance and help you get back on course quickly.

We are about to start work on a number of new features, so check back for more news.
