Android subscription - DKW the Netherlands

Recently we added a subscription service for the DKW the Netherlands for Android devices! Giving you the option to navigate on the dutch water ways with a highly detailed water chart for a nominal fee.

With this app you can purchase a subscription for our Dutch inland water chart and easily create simple routes. Navigating on a tablet or smartphone becomes particularly suitable for sailboats and motorboats as well as dinghies, fisherboats and canoes.

For only € 15,- you can start using the DKW the Netherlands North or South for a month on an Android tablet or smartphone. With your first subscription you will receive a free 3-day trial period.

Thanks to the biweekly updates, the accurate surface chart and the help of many long-time users this chart always remains up-to-date. With nearly 40.000 waypoints all information on buoys, harbours, berths, diesel filling stations, watersport campings and VHF channels can be found on the chart. With a scale of 2 meter per pixel the chart has a large detailed view and makes it possible to zoom in up until your home port.

North or South for € 15,-

Try now for 3 days free of charge


Navigation on a tablet

Navigation has never been this easy thanks to the DKW the Netherlands app. After downloading the chart files and turning on the (internal) GPS, you will immediately see your speed, course and position on the chart. By placing a navigational waypoint on the chart, the shortest route to this point will be plotted on the route network. Giving you information about the total distance to your destination and estimated time of arrival when maintaining your current speed. Discover how simple mobile navigation can be!

Please mind: when plotting a route in the app measurements for bridges, locks and waterways are not taken into account. Our Android app WinGPS Marine does take these measurements into account. Click here for more info on WinGPS Marine.

Stentecs inland water charts are so-called hybrid charts. The bottom surface is a raster format. This is where a.o. the quays, depths and buildings are shown. All other navigational information is projected on top of this through waypoints. These waypoints remain the same size when zooming in or out. The chart can be fully personalized by adding or removing certain waypoint groups and showing you only the information you select.

In total, the DKW the Netherlands has 550 waypoints, with a.o. buoys, harbours, moorings, diesel tank stations, watersport campsites, VHF channels, electric chargers ‘Elektrisch Varen’ and ‘Varen Doe Je Samen’ nodes.

  • 1 Chart With VHF area and water plant markers (scale 1:24.000, 6.4 m/pixel).

Chart image

Stentecs inland water charts are so-called hybrid charts. The bottom surface is a raster format. This is where a.o. the quays, depths and buildings are shown. All other navigational information is projected on top of this through waypoints. These waypoints remain the same size when zooming in or out. The chart can be fully personalized by adding or removing certain waypoint groups and showing you only the information you select.

In total, the DKW the Netherlands has 550 waypoints, with a.o. buoys, harbours, moorings, diesel tank stations, watersport campsites, VHF channels, electric chargers ‘Elektrisch Varen’ and ‘Varen Doe Je Samen’ nodes.

Specifically for commercial shipping waterway signs and VIN moorings are added.

Chart image

The DKW Delius Klasing series are comprised of raster charts. Because of this, the charts are an exact copy of the paper versions and you will see pixels when zoomed in to the maximum amount. The advantage of this is that all information, for example buoyage or shallows, are projected on the exact coordinates. When using vector charts a misleading image can show up when zooming in.
