Stentec’s top navigation software helps you plan the optimal route and therefore provides additional safety at long journeys and extra advantages at regattas. Voyager shows the fastest, shortest, most economical or cheapest route available, both while on engine or under sail.
Not only can you enter the dimensions of your ship, you can also select the polar diagram from a list of over 3000 ships. If your ship is unavailable you can either record your own diagram with WinGPS 5 Voyager and a wind meter or change an existing diagram to the correct data.
With Voyager information on currents and tides is included as well as the option to connect with onboard equipment such as AIS, wind meter, depth meter, autopilot, log and compass.
Download the latest GRIB files for the weather, currents and waves forecast and set your route. Voyager will advise you on the best route, taking the environment and the characteristics of your ship into account.
When the winds are too strong to sail over open water you can easily change the route to inland waterways with the standing mast route. This will give you extra information about bridges & locks and shows how long your new journey will take.
WinGPS navigation software is available for Windows and Android devices which makes it possible to navigate aboard with your laptop, onboard PC, smartphone and tablet. One WinGPS license can be used on two different devices. You are able to plot your routes at home on a desktop PC with a large screen and transfer the data to your onboard device. Another advantage would be to install the software on a second onboard device as backup.
Download GRIB-files for a 7 day weather forecast. During sailing, WinGPS will show your current position, speed and course. Sailed routes will be logged which can be analysed in detail at home or be printed/e-mailed to send to the crew.
