Default Is there a way to import CAD drawing files (.dwg) into Fugawi?

We've been trying to test Fugawi 4.5 for the navigation system of some
boats we operate here but the problem is, plans used for route are in
dwg format in grid coordinates. Is there a way to import this file
directly to Fugawi or convert it first to a supported format. If
conversion is necessary, what software is available in the market for
this conversion (freeware/shareware/or for sale).

Any suggestion is welcome. Thanks.

If the3 plans are geo-referenced (I think Fugawi wants either Lat/Lon
or UTM) then you could just plot to a raster file and import them with
the Fugawi Calibrate program. I have done this and it works fine.
