IMporting / Sharing Routes Between OpenCpn Friends

I can see where you can back up and revert to previous route/ nav data.

Is there a way for me to give my NAVDATA / Routes and Chart additions to another OpenCpn user?

I want to share my routes and places I have marked on my charts witha couple of friends.

lookoutnw. refer to O's handy-dandy help file that is "aboard".(click the "?",choose "Help". refer to "the Route Manager andGPX data "....

quick help: You "export" your routes and marks to a "gpx" file which is widely recognized in Gps and navigation apps.

..and the upcoming new version of O has much more flexible waypoint/route export functions too, so keep a look out for it, lookoutnw!
