I LOVE your software! I have approximatley 25,000 (Yes, 25 thousand!) waypoints saved with Chart Navigator Pro (MapTech). This saves me an unimaginable amount of time when I want to transfer waypoints to my Raymarine C120. Before I would manually put in the section that I thought I was most likely to fish and hope that I was correct. Now I just convert them to the .rwf file and then export from Raytech RNS to a compact flash card. Now with this software I have peace of mind.
I only have one question. I use alot of different symbols for different meanings on the waypoints. Is there a way to have the symbols carry over from the MapTech exchange format to the Raymarine Waypoint File?
BTW, I LOVE your software!

Not really. We don't know how to read the symbols or colors from mxf files.
We'd have to either find a table of icons or go through the software and
create a waypoint of every icon and build that table. To handle that, we'd
need to replace the current MXF style file (~20 lines of description) with a
custom module in C.
In short, it'd take non-trivial work to do it.
