Service Card 2020
Upgrade your WinGPS 5 version now by purchasing the WinGPS Service Card 2020. This not only gives you the above-mentioned updates, but also updates from WinGPS 5 throughout 2020 and other great benefits and discounts. Don't wait too long, because the Service Card 2020 is only available until 29 February 2020.

  • New buttons are available for your toolbar. Go to 'View → Customize main toolbar..' and put the buttons you want to use in the left column. For example, by putting the 'Blauwe Golf Verbindend' button on the toolbar, you can easily turn it on and off for a more clear chart view.
  • Not all bridges and locks are included in 'Blauwe Golf Verbindend' yet. This will be expanded over time. Of course, all bridges and locks are included in WinGPS, including the operating times, dimensions and often also a photo and contact details.
  • In GRIB management you can disable the 'Automatically update GRIB files'.
  • By turning off the Shipping Notifications button or 'Blauwe Golf Verbindend' button, they will no longer be shown on your chart, but will still be updated in the background. However, these are very small files with a size of a few kilobytes.
  • Do you have many tracks, routes, logs and other personal navigation data? Then this is a great time to make a back up. In WinGPS 5 go to 'File → Back up'. Select the data you want to save and the desired location, for example a waterproof USB stick. This way you can always restore your data in the event of a crash of your computer.
