Transfers Old Waypoints to New Gadgets
Andren software makes waypoint transfer fast and easy, even from Loran to GPS.
Not long ago, one of our marine electronics testers, Bill Bishop, was faced with the task of transferring waypoints from an ancient Garmin 215 chartplotter to a Garmin 7215. There are several ways to do this, but Bishop found that one of the most convenient was to use Andren software on a PC computer. The software is so versatile that it even can be used to transfer waypoints from an old Loran receiver (remember those?) to a new GPS. Other formats it can support include Furuno, Garmin, Maptech, Northstar, Raymarine, Simrad, and GPX.
