Can Garmin format be converted into a format to use in OpenCPN.....

I wonder if there is a way to convert Garminīs G2 charts into a usefull format of OpenCPN. I donßt have the charts for the Caribbean and I donīt want to spend another bunch of dollars in charts. I bought in some russian place the CM93 charts and got nothing out of it.
I do have the Garmin chartplotter for Western Caribbean and South America coast. But I would like to convert these into a format to use with OpenCPN. Is there a known way and without making a Master in Computing?

Tks and rgds

The short answer is NO. There is no known way to convert the Garmin G2 charts to something one can use in OpenCPN. Or in any other non-Garmin navigation software.
If you want to use CM93 charts, make sure you have version 2, not 3. It's a bit unusual to pay for CM93/version2 charts.
