Import Maxsea 10.3 Tracks into OpenCPN ?

Hi,
I just wondered if there is a way to do this that is easy for me to follow?

I had a look around but there does not seem to be an easy way that is documented.
Thanks John

take a look here: CONVERSION of MaxSea ROUTES AND TRACKS TO

track from maxsea to gpx format for...opencpn using GPSUtility

credit to the one who did write this but could not find a reference for the source.
I guess you could also use GPSBabel, a universal GPS format convertor. good luck.

I confess ... it was me. And there's lots more on the subject at the site.

Enjoy

Well, I found an error and have now corrected it. You should uncheck the box 'Waypoints' before exporting the file.
