Installation in WinGPS 5
Installing your digital chart in WinGPS 5 is made easy with the DKW Manager. Please make sure you have the latest version installed and choose 'Install/update'. Next, choose the first option: 'DKW2 charts from the internet'. Follow the steps on your screen and your charts will automatically be downloaded and installed.

Removing old editions
To make optimal use of your navigation software, we advise you to remove older editions of your charts as soon as possible. By doing so, you will never be sailing on old chart information by accident. In DKW Manager choose 'uninstall' and select the old editions.
