Hardware

With WinGPS you can create a full navigational centre. The software is designed to customize as you please. Will you use a tablet or laptop? Will you need to be able to read your screen outside or will you be using WinGPS inside? And, when installing additional hardware, will you do this wireless or are you stuck using wires?


GPS receiver

When determining your position, speed and course you will need to use a GPS receiver. Most people will choose an affordable USB GPS Receiver but you could also choose a bluetooth or onboard receiver. Onboard GPS receivers are usually attached using a USB-to-serial cable.


AIS transponder

See and be seen with the newest generation of AIS transponders. With the internal splitter you are able to connect the current VHF antenna without having to install a second antenna. If you have a polyester or wooden ship you can choose to use an AIS transponder with internal GPS. If you only want to receive AIS information without sending your own position, we also have multiple AIS receivers available.

If you only want to receive AIS signals we have a selection of different AIS receivers available.

AIS transponders have several options available to them; Receiver/Transmitter, VHF splitter, Internal wifi, GPS receiver etc. To make it easy for our customers, we have compiled a handy questionnaire from which the most appropriate version is offered in response to your answers.

Depth image

Stentec publishes the chart sets annually. All data is supplied by Delius Klasing. During the edition year 1 free update is published halfway through the year, giving you the most up-to-date charts during your voyage.


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.
