WinGPS and DKW charts can't be used on OSx you can use the charts only on windows based computers. There is a possibility to use the charts on an apple computer. You need to install Windows and then install the charts. You can install Windows in Parallells Desktop or via BootCamp.

Thanks for your reply.While surfing the net, in the meantime I found that in 2004 Stentec was supporting the use of the DKW charts with the MacGPS Pro software. Has this support been discontinued?

Best regards,

Jost

Before 2004 we made DKW charts indeed. In 2004 we had to change the format of the charts and these charts don't work on a Mac. This is made because the older charts could be copied easily. I hope this is enough information.

Hi Mac friends,

WinGPS PRO works perfectly on Mac OS X 10.6 using the product VMware Fusion (http://www.vmware.com)
With Fusion, Windows runs in a virtual machine with very high performance (not like the oldschool virtual products for Mac)
USB connection to a GPS device is no problem, and you can use the high resolutions of your Mac display.
Big advantage is that you can create SnapShots (very fast backup's) of the Windows machine for easy recovery, and backup the
entire image of you Windows machine on an external disk.
