Probably..... but these are old GPS's and the whole idea was to be able to leave the Garmin in NMEA
mode, feeding position data into OpenCPN and at the same time being able to upload WP's without taking it offline (changing to Garmin mode) a la MaxSea
, CMap, Yeoman and others.
OpenCPN now successfully uploads multiple WP's. You can build a route from the uploaded WP's very quickly within the GPS
itself. The work vs benefit of getting OpenCPN to do this for routes is IMO not worth the effort.
