Transferring waypoints, courses and tracks to from Raymarine C/E series displays

Hello,

Is there a simple tool or process to transfer waypoints, courses and tracks to/from a Raymarine C/E series display, or Raytech RNS?

haydudeTake4,

Yes, use GPSbabel to convert from .gpx to ??? (Raymarine format)
GPSBabel: convert, upload, download data from GPS and Map programs

OpenCPN can export and import gpx data, and as stated above, gpsbabel can change to from most formats for devices not supporting gpx, including raymarine formats. You can probably import data from your raymarine device into gpsbabel (I do that with my garmin device)

As said above, you have to use GPX - the standard between all these standards...

haydudeTake4,

OpenCPN uses .gpx file format.

This guy seems to have the process working.

Raymarine C-Series Waypoint and Route Import + Export
