Open CPN and Furuno GP30 import-export waypoint

Hello, sorry for my bad English but I'll try to be clear!
First thank at the communauty who developp this geant program! It's work better than expensives applications!!!
But I have a question : How to you do to import-export Waypoint from and to a Furuno GP3x GPS? I understand how Import-Export GPX data but unfortunatly GP3x don't use this protocole! It use a proprieretary NMEA protocole look like :
$PFEC,GPwpl,0000.000,N,00000.000,E,CURSOR,,@rSYS.W P(NO ENTRY),A,,,,
$PFEC,GPwpl,3823.920,N,02106.551,E,MOB ,,@q08-JUN-08 17:22 ,A,,,,
$PFEC,GPwpl,4729.350,N,00306.054,W,START ,,@r31-MAY-11 21:11 ,A,,,,
Have you a solution or do you plan a developpement on this point?

Re: Open CPN and Furuno GP30 import-export waypoint

Welcome to CF, Gilles !!!

A quick Google search turned out French app WDGPS that appears to convert from Furuno GP3X to other formats
Could not test it however
Hope it helps...
