need to buy a chart before doing anything. search at website didn't work.. blank screen and reload didn't work. should have a bare minimum chart so we can see how it works as it seems to have much potential. Update: developer responded quickly with charts to download and options, which I did try unsuccessfully. My point to them is to include one chart, I don't care if it's eastside Kazakhstan but then we can proceed and evaluate whether to proceed.

Thank you for the feedback. It is possible to import GPX. Just safe the GPX file on your device and open the file. Your device will ask which app you would like to use, then select WinGPS Marine and the file is imported. Regarding your question about the waypoints and names on the base chart, please contact our helpesk.
