A free new smartphone app has been launched giving water users across New Zealand easy access to all the information they'll need when heading out onto the water.
The MarineMate application for iPhone and Android devices has up-to-date tide information adjusted for daylight savings, boat ramp locations, safe boating checklists, and regulatory information on 5 knot zones, towing lanes and swimming areas.
Downloading this free app onto your phone means water users no longer need to carry cumbersome tide guides, or copies of multiple bylaws.
Updates to MarineMate will be released if rules change or additional information becomes available, such as the location of Telecom cables.
