I've put off switching to navionics from c map cause I new it would be a pain with the files. Now I've got to do it as I'll be running a new boat with Navionics and don't want to type 1000 waypoints.
Anybody know how to import waypoints from my cmap planner's csv files to Navionics planner nv files?

You would think they would put it in the soft ware to make it easy to transfer and therefore switch from a competitor.

Do you already have the wpt files on your PC or can they be downloaded to your PC. What sw do you have on the PC for Navionics - is it Lowrance? I belive the wpt format is based on the type of plotter you have, not the chart format. I use Navionics w/ Lowrance, and I know that format.

Send some details and I can doa quick conversion.

God luck,

This program works well with Furuno and other programs GPS Receivers
  1. GPS Utility has been tested with many (but not all!) Garmin models.
    The Garmin USB interface is now supported. Please let the author know if you find a Garmin GPS which does not work with GPS Utility.

    The Garmin IQue (PDA GPS) and the following old Garmin products are not supported: GPS150, GNC300, GPS155, GNC250, GNC250XL and GNC300XL. The Garmin Geko 101 does not have a PC connection.
  2. Magellan products are also supported. The following are known to work: Meridian, Sportrak, 315/320, 330, 410, 2000XL, 3000XL, NAV6000, Explorist range, but other Magellans may work as well. The 5000DLX is only supported via the NMEA interface.
  3. MLR receivers for waypoint and route upload and download.
  4. Furuno (GP30/35, GP31/36, 32/37, 1650, 1850 and Navnet Series) receivers for waypoint and route upload and download.
  5. Simrad Shipmate (CP32, RS5700) receivers for waypoint upload and download.
  6. Silva/Brunton receivers for waypoint/route upload/download and track download
  7. Northstar (941, 951, 952 Series, and 6000i series) receivers for waypoint upload and download.

  9. Standard Horizon for waypoint upload/download.

  11. Other receivers (perhaps with some limitations) using the NMEA interface.
If in doubt, please try your GPS using the Freeware version of GPS Utility - all interface functions are enabled in this version.
