All Chartworx Fish Plotters support real time conversion for data from some other systems while other data formats can be converted into Quodfish or TRAX format in-house.
The Windows based systems are because of the software being continually updated to the latest market requirements and the favourable conditions of the software maintenance contract the best long term solution for the fishing industry.
