Transferring data from third party chartplotter to legacy Raymarine MFDs
Transferring data from third party chartplotter to legacy Raymarine MFDs

The following legacy Raymarine MFDs utilized Raymarine's retired proprietary Archive.FSH waypoint/route/track file format when saving waypoint, route, and track data to a memory card:
- A60/A65 Chartplottter and Chartplotter/Fishfinders
- A-Series Classic MFDs (A50, A50D, A57D, A70, A70D)
- C-Series Classic MFDs (C70, C80, C120)
- E-Series Classic MFDs (E80, E120)
- G-Series System (GPM400)
- C-Series Widescreen MFDs (C90W, C120W, C140W)
- E-Series Widescreen MFDs (E90W, E120W, E140W)
- a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFDs (v13.37 and earlier)
- Dragonfly displays operating with software prior to v9.40 also utilized Raymarine's retired proprietary Archive.FSH waypoint/route/track file format.

Raymarine's Voyage Planner PC navigational planning software supports this file format as well as the non-proprietary and much more commonly supported GPX waypoint/route/track file format. Many third party marine electronics products and navigational software applications also now support GPX file format as well as their own proprietary waypoint/route/track file formats. GPS Utility (a third party PC application) is also a recommended solution for those producing Archive.FSH files from GPX files as well as for producing Archive.fsh files from waypoint/route files/track files employing third party proprietary file formats. If considering use of GPS Utility, it is strongly recommended that the demo version of GPS Utility downloaded to confirm that it supports the file format(s) used by the third party chart plotting product(s) and/or third party navigational planning application(s) which produced or will produce the source file from which the Archive.fsh file will be produced.

UPDATE: Raymarine has ceased sales of Voyage Planner software through Raymarine's Charts Store and through its dealers. A limited number of boxed copies of the Raymarine Voyager Planner software may be found within dealer inventories. While Raymarine has not yet announced a replacement planning application, it is quite possible that Raymarine may do so in the future. At this time, Navionics is recommending Navigation Planner PC planning software for its customers. Navigation Planner features support for Raymarine product and their waypoint symbol sets.
