As far as I understand it this data refers to the visualization of 
geographical data in a CAD way. It will probably contain usable data, but 
you will need to do a lot of conversion to make this compatible with the 
GWS84 format, which is used in the GPS system. First you will have to find 
out what datum the Gauss Boaga system uses, then it probably can be 
converted to a usable format.
