Default Waypoint management program for Furuno tzt2

My buddy gave me his book of numbers in the Gulf. What software program can I use to enter the numbers onto a chip using my desktop and then load them into my chart Plotter?

Thanks in advance for assistance!

Seems like .csv file is the best way

What I am looking for is a program like Raytech that I can enter waypoints on my desktop and load them onto a card to use in my mfd.

That is what is described above. The software program would be Microsoft Excel. Enter your waypoints in Excel and save as .csv file. You can get the formatting correctly if you export your current waypoints on yours TZT to a .csv file on to your SD card. Then open the file in Excel on your computer to see the format. You would then add your new waypoints.

Excel is the cheap and easy way to manage the waypoints. You can also use the Time Zero software to manage native Furuno format apps and see them on a chart. That gets expensive unless you are comfortable just using the iPad version.

Any of the popular (and free) waypoint management programs can create GPX files, which are compatible with the TZT2.

SeaMarks by Andren. Carl is great to talk with if you have any issues with his program.
