Default How to convert Raymarine WP's to Garmin?

Any good conversion programs out there?

Need to go from CMap's Planner software (NT cards) saved to xlm files to the new Garmin SD cards (5215).

If your software can export Raymarine .rwf files you can use GPSbabel [google it] If it will export .gpx files you can load them directly into Mapsource. If it will save them in text files you can have a fine old time mastering spreadsheets.

Cmap's PCPlanner only outputs into an XML format from what I remember. I'll have to check that again. Of course the computer my PCplannner is on, crashed and needs rebuilt, so I only have the data right now, in XML files.

Bfaith,
Yep, switching to Garmin. Have you tried the new touchscreens out? Swwwwwweeeeeeetttttt!! This is how the software should have been running years ago. Nice and easy to use, intuitive. I just hope the sounder module with a B164 performs as good as the DS500x! That DS500 is a great machine peformance wise.

Nobody else has converted their Ray WP's / Routes to Garmin? Maybe I'll email my files to Garmin, and tell them I won't spend the $10k on Garmin equipment until they convert them for me!!
