[CA11] Voyage Planner Replacement
I would like to be able to use a laptop to plan routes that I can later upload to my Axiom MFD. I understand that Raymarine Voyage Planner software is no longer being produced or supported. I know that there is still available inventory of Voyage Planner software from retail vendors. Trying to decide if I should invest in software that is no longer being supported. The risk in using end-of-life software is that it may not be compatible with future computer operating system security patches or upgrades. Are there any plans for a new PC navigation program that will work with Raymarine MFDs and Navionics?

RE: [CA11] Voyage Planner Replacement
Welcome to the Raymarine Forum Argus,

Q1. I understand that Raymarine Voyage Planner software is no longer being produced or supported.
A1. This is not completely correct. While Voyage Planner may no longer be purchased via Raymarine's Charts Store, the boxed version of Voyage Planner remains available. Raymarine continues to provide support for Voyage Planner.

Q2. Are there any plans for a new PC navigation program that will work with Raymarine MFDs and Navionics?
A2. Raymarine has not yet announced a replacement for Voyage Planner. As of today, Voyage Planner continues to be the recommended PC based planning application for Raymarine MFDs, past and present.

Hey Argus,

I have a C-97 and a es127. I use Coastal Explorer to plan my routes. I then save them on a SD card as a GPX file then up load to my MFD. I then go into my MFDs and verify the route is correct and safe.

Raymarine Voyage Planner is compatible with Navionics. I checked Coastal Explorer; it uses charts other than Navionics and cost $380.00. Not the way that I want to go. I will use Voyage Planner since Raymarine will continue to provide support.

Thanks for the update. I will purchase and use Voyage Planner as recommended.
