FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Hicksville, NY) With the rise and popularity of waterproof mobile devices, the beginning of mobile dominance in the paddle sports industry has emerged. Wendel Technologies, Inc., the company behind Paddle Partner has recently announced the launch of an updated version of this proprietary software. The updated version offers additional safety features, as well as off-route notifications.
“The vision of the Paddle Partner app was to provide a unique experience for users that surpassed all of the other similar apps available on the market today,” stated representative Kyle Wendel. “By using the Delaware Water Gap Map, canoers and kayakers can follow the path they have chosen without having to worry about getting lost. It also provides peace of mind of always knowing where you are. Thanks to the paper-free navigation app, the hassle of paper is eliminated.”
Until this innovative app, was created, water lovers only had paper maps to plan kayaking and canoeing trips because of limited or no internet access, which is required for other map navigation apps. Paddle Partner team members saw the need to find a solution for this problem, which is when the app was created. While several updates to the app have been introduced, the latest, 1.5, offers more features than previous versions.
“With the mobile app downloaded, users are able to see the selected maps, always in real time, regardless of if they have an internet connection, or not,” Wendel continued. “With our app, users can easily navigate the location they have chosen and measure the total distance to their landing point. Other features include average paddling speed and nearby campsites.”
Version 1.5 of Paddle Partner is set to be released the first week of June in 2017 and there are plans to create an Android version of the app later in the year. To learn more about the specific features, destinations, and future updates, users can visit
