KnowWake Introduces Four BIG Features in 4.0 App Release

In addition to the latest features revealed in 4.0, key existing features include a Wake Zone Identifier, Marine Life Sightings, Patrol and Hazard Locations, the capability of creating and sharing a Float Plan, an S.O.S. Safety Feature, and Offline Mode to allow KnowWake and GPS to work without an internet connection.

Fremont, CA: KnowWake, a first-of-its-kind, free waterway navigation app powered by real-time updates and crowdsourced data, recently launched it's 4.0 application upgrade for iOS and Android. Version 4.0 released in mid-December with four new features designed to further improve experiences on the water:

Destination Routing on the Basis of Vessel Draft

Users are able to route directly to any of KnowWake's points-of-interest on US waterways with distance displayed.

Location Sharing

Users are able to share their location with other KnowWake users, a group, or publicly with all users.

Local and Remote Depth

Depth is displayed on the basis of the current location. It can also be displayed elsewhere on the chart by first tapping the depth gauge and then tapping anywhere on the water to reveal.

What has been comparable to a Waze or Google Maps for the road, KnowWake's platform creates a safer and simple way to explore all the dockside as well as waterfront locations available by boat. Users will find everything from local restaurants, fuel docks, marinas, launch ramps, dive shops, inlets, snorkel areas, dive sites, and so much more. The app is presently available in the United States, Canada, parts of the Caribbean, Australia, and New Zealand—this also includes inland bodies of water, with over 350 lakes and rivers, and all of America's Great Loop.

In addition to the latest features revealed in 4.0, key existing features include a Wake Zone Identifier, Marine Life Sightings, Patrol and Hazard Locations, the capability of creating and sharing a Float Plan, an S.O.S. Safety Feature, and Offline Mode to allow KnowWake and GPS to work without an internet connection.
