loading Navionics charts into Open CPN

I have been using Navionics Gold Sd card charts loaded into my onboard PC for navigation, using Fugawi. as a nav program

Recently loaded Open CPN onto the machine to have a backup program and really like it.... easy to us and fairly intuitive. Using Cmap 93 with it right now.
They are OK, I used them last time I sailed round the world 8 years ago, but thought I would try buying and sing update-able charts.

Seeing as I already own the Navionics charts and they are on the boat computer's hard drive, is there any way to move them over to use them on Open CPN???

Thanks ... Jim. s/v Haulback

Re: loading Navionics charts into Open CPN

Short answer is No, Navionics charts can't be migrated to OpenCPN.

Please have a look to this recent post here:Navionics Charts
