I used those way points to build a GPX file to upload to my Chart plotter to stay legal. I am willng to share the file. Is there a place on BD to host a file for down load?

    Thank you! Opened and easily imported to Navionics.

    Question... How does the line work from waypoint 001 (outside of Point Loma) going south down to the border? See the red area below.

    That south most way point (321) is what was published by DFW.
    This should work if you load it on the sd card for your chartplotter.

    Just curious how did you manage to download it? I can’t figure it out and navionics apps are horrible.

    I'm afraid that I may not be able to walk you through it step by step even though I'd like to help.

    I'm assuming that you already downloaded the file above. After you download it oh, go to your files and find it. Change the name of end of the file name (".txt") to .gpx.

    Once you do that, go into navionics and find the button that let's you upload or import a file. I can't remember what I actually clicked on oh, but if you look around you'll find it. From there follow the path to where you have the. GPS file. Then click on it and follow the instructions to upload, there you have it.

    I'll probably no help at all. Hope you figure it out man.
