Specially for inland skippers Stentec Software has released the navigation program WinGPS Inland, available for your on-board PC or laptop. By loading the free iENC maps and connecting AIS and GPS, you can easily and quickly create a cost-effective navigation system on board.
The new navigation program WinGPS Inland was initially specially developed for commercial navigation on European inland waterways. By loading the free iENC it is possible to comply with the Information Mode, which has recently become mandatory on German inland waterways. WinGPS Inland is also recommended for dredging, fishing, government agencies, (larger) motor yachts and navigation on open sea.
In addition to WinGPS Inland, you need the digital charts of your sailing area. Choose from the wide selection of up-to-date DKW charts (developed by Stentec), or load ENC charts from the various governments.
For easy downloading of iENC, including annual updates, we recommend the new "Inland Update Service"
subscription. With this service you can easily download iENC and you get updates of both WinGPS and all the charts that you have installed during the year.
Because WinGPS Inland can be installed on two systems, you have the option of plotting your route at home on a large screen and preparing your trip. This second installation can of course also be used as an on-board backup.
