Service Card 2018

Starting now the popular WinGPS Service Card 2018 is available for purchase in our online store. As last year, when purchasing the Service Card you are ensured of the newest version of WinGPS 5 and will profit from several exclusive offers.

Hybrid charts for added safety

Our new DKW IENC Germany charts are available now in our online shop. The new hybrid charts in DKW format are recommended for navigation on the German rivers.

Hybrid charts offer the best of both worlds; the fast chart processing of raster charts and the clear waypoints of vector charts. While installing the charts, we automatically install a waypoint database. This database is seperate from the charts, so even when you rotate the chart, the waypoints will be clear. Updating your WinGPS 5 and DKW Manager is needed for showing the waypoint database.

We recommend WinGPS 5 Navigator, Pro or Voyager in combination with the DKW IENC charts thanks to the network of (a.o.) Rhine, Saar and Moessel.

We would appreciate input from our users to improve our first version. Feel free to


Rhein (Lobith-Iffezheim), Ruhr, Rhein-Herne-Kanal, Wesel-Datteln-Kanal, Mosel, Saar, Main, Main-Donau-kanaal, Donau en Neckar.

DKW 1800 series
Since 1999 Stentec Software provides the digital version of the hydrographic charts of the Netherlands. Thanks to the weekly BaZ Update Service you will always have the latest, most up-to-date charts. The charts can be ordered as separate sets or as a complete package.

At a time like this where there is no certainty about the releases of the 1800-series charts by the Dutch Hydrographic Services, this is a unique product. With the free weekly update service and the ability to use the charts on a laptop as well as on an Android device, a up-to-date chart of these busy and unpredictable waters is always at hand. As soon as a new paper version of the charts are released, users can download these directly in digital form. If desired, the charts can also be printed for personal use.

The Waddensea charts 1811 and 1812 are supplied with monthly updated depth images from Rijkswaterstaat.

Chart coverage
The different sets in the DKW 1800 series consist of a.o.

  • Northsea coast
  • Westerschelde
