OpenCPN uses the GPX format to store waypoints. If Olex can export this format, Yes.

There are lots of free tools that convert various formats to/from GPX.

Re: Waypoints

Another alternative: GPSBabel: convert, upload, download data from GPS and Map programs

Re: Waypoints

Does Open CPN support NMEA 0183 sentence called TLL (Target Latitude, Longitude).

Re: Waypoints

Ivanm...
Yes, OpenCPN supports both TLL and TTM messages, see Radar Targets | Official OpenCPN Homepage
It is not very well tested as I don't have access to a radar producing them.

Re: Waypoints

Ok and as I struggle to convert my Olex files, would it be possible to use the marks from my furuno chart plotter in open cpn, but then again how do I read it from the plotter without a chart reader

Ivanm...
No idea, have a look at the manual of your plotter and check if it can export them or at least send as NME0183 (perhaps as WPL sentence)
