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

On Fri, 23 May 2008 02:05:17 -0700 (PDT), hydro_survey

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 by "route" you mean a series of points (usually called "waypoints"
in GPS-ish), you will have to convert the coordinates you have for
each point to latitude and longitude to allow you to enter them in any
navigation program.
