chart conversion

Hi, I am new to open cpn and electronic charting in general. I apologize if this question has been asked, I searched around for a while but i am not sure what exactly I am looking for so decided to ask. I have garmin bluecharts and I would like to use them with open cpn instead of having to buy all those charts again. Is this possible? Or do I have to go buy the charts I need, that are not available for free.

Re: chart conversion

All supported chart formats are listed on this page: Chart Formats | Official OpenCPN Homepage.

There is no support for any of Garmins different chart formats.
