Thanks! I have read this series of posts, but I guess I'm not technologogically savvy enough to follow the comments. I couldn't figure out where to add the extensions to the file...and I'm not even really sure if that is the fix.
Currently I'm running both Fugawi and SeaClear which import directly from my GPS files. Is there a similar way to import waypoint and route files from a GPS in Opencpn? I do like the otherwise simplicity of Opencpn and would like to try it out in real-world conditions.
Thanks again!
Duff
