New Basis for iOS
WinGPS Marine for iOS is our first app for the iPad and iPhone. The app originated from the beta version that has been enthusiastically tested by hundreds of WinGPS users in the recent months. We want to thank everyone who sent us feedback, so we now have a nice basis for this navigation app.

The iOS app is already ideal for use with our open water charts, such as the popular DKW 1800 series. After adding the waterway network, the app will also be suitable for use on inland waterways, such as with the DKW Vaarkaart Nederland.

Note: only charts from 2018 and newer can be used in this app. Do you have older charts? Then you can renew them in our online shop.Click here to renew your charts >

Let us know what you think
In the coming period, the app will of course be further upgraded, optimized and new (possibly paid) functions will be added, for example AIS, route planning and GRIB files. We would like to continue to receive your feedback about the current version and any wishes for future versions via the feedback form.

Bluetooth GPS-receivers
Do you have an iPad without an internal GPS receiver? Then you can use a Bluetooth GPS receiver to determine your position, speed and course in WinGPS Marine. Click here to order the GPS receiver in our webshop.


Update for WinGPS 5 Pro and Voyager 2019

This week we have released an update for WinGPS 5 Pro & Voyager 2019. Below you can find a description of the updates, which include the addition of AIS buddies and improvements to the KNMI weather stations.



KNMI weather stations
The KNMI weather stations are functional again and have been expanded with weather stations on Saba, Sint Eustatius and Bonaire.

Note: If you switch on the KNMI weather stations and have an internet connection, you will see the current wind information on all KNMI weather stations on the map. These are updated every 10 minutes. Ideal to see if the weather forecast is correct and what kind of weather is coming your way.




AIS buddies
With the new AIS buddies feature you can set individual AIS targets as your 'buddy'. Doing so will draw a coloured circle around the AIS ship and this ship will appear in the list of your buddies. You can set the color of the circle around your buddy to your liking. The AIS buddies are shown in bold in the AIS target list, so that you can quickly recognize them.

It is also possible to show only the AIS buddies at 'View> Properties'. All other AIS targets are then hidden. This can be useful if you are sailing in a group and only want to see those ships. For safety, it may be useful to add a 2nd chart window and only show the ships from your buddy list here, so that you can see all AIS targets on your main chart window.




AIS information is saved
The name, dimensions, MMSI, IMO number, Callsign, ENI, ERI, VendorID and vessel type of AIS targets are now stored in WinGPS 5.

When your AIS has been switched off or has (temporarily) not received data, you will now immediately have all the information on your screen again. This would normally take a few minutes.


Other changes
In addition to the above improvements, updates have been made to the route network and bugs have been fixed, making WinGPS 5 even more stable and smoother.

Downloading updates
Are you already in possession of WinGPS 5 Pro 2019 or WinGPS 5 Voyager 2019? Then you can easily download this update via the News Center in your WinGPS 5. If the update is not shown in the news center, you can check under 'Help > About' whether you may have an older version installed. You can always download the 2019 edition again from your account at
