EuroCanals PhotoNav Guides for the Danube river, in a new format: full-screen photos, and lots of them! A few examples are shown on this page.

EuroCanals PhotoNav Guides provide information for planning and for visual navigation on the waterways across Europe. The guides can can be used alone or alongside a chart plotter or a computer running OpenCPN software.

The photo above is an example, taken from the guide for the Donau river in Germany. The skipper of a traveling boat has planned to stop overnight at Hafen Donautal; the PhotoNav Guide shows that the location is at Kilometer 2403.5, on the left bank. Contact information is shown, and the photo shows the skipper exactly how the entrance to the marina appears from the river. This location is relatively easy to find, but look at the one below, the entrance to Marina Saal:

Bridges are displayed with the KM location and the height (clearance) under the span.

Locks are displayed with the KM location, size and contact information. Photos like this one show, in advance, where the skipper might tie up for waiting or for overnight.

Sightseeing suggestions are included; recommended cities, towns and sites, with a description of some of the most interesting sights to visit.

In addition to dozens of photos of the waterway, all of the content of the EuroCanals Guides are included:
