WinGPS Marine Plus for iOS

After the free app WinGPS Marine for iOS, Stentec releases the extended version WinGPS Marine Plus. This app included premium features and is developed for the iPhone and iPad.

With WinGPS Marine plus for iOS it is possible to wirelessly connect your AIS device. This way you can see the AIS objects on your chart. It is also possible to set out a (simple) route and save your sailed tracks. For the inland waterways the app can be set in course-up mode for the best chart view.

Expected soon

One of the first functions to be added is being able to plot a route over the waterway network. This allows you to easily and quickly set out a route over the inland waterways. Please note that the dimensions of your ship in combination with the dimensions of the waterway and objects such as bridges and locks are not yet taken into account. This will be added later.

After this we will add GRIB file downloads to WinGPS Marine Plus, for example to show wind and precipitation on the chart. The current and tide information is also planned for the development of WinGPS Marine Plus.

The charts that can be used in this app, are Stentec’s own DKW-charts. For example the free chart DKW Frisian Lakes or the well-known DKW 1800-series for the Dutch coastal waters, including weekly update services.

At the first start-up of the app, you will be asked to log in with your account. The free default online maps from Apple are available in the app for orientation. The DKW-charts, which are connected to your account, can be downloaded directly in this app and be used for navigation.

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 cards >
