New Color H20, what to watch for when switching chip?

3 posts in this topic

I just picked up a new color H20 and will be pulling my lake chip out of my black and white unit this weekend. Are there anythings I should watch for in the way of losing any waypoints or icons? Do I have to manually reload all my way points and icons from one unit to the other? I don't think that they write onto the chip it's self? Also it looks like I need to have the light on all the time on the color to see anything, has anyone ever had a light burn out and have to replace it? frown

Your waypoints, trails and icons are stored in the memory of your b/w unit. You can transfer the waypoints and trails to the new gps, I don't think you can transfer icons though (not sure about that). There's probably plenty of room on your map card to put the files on that and use it to load the files to your new gps. It's a pretty simple process.

Thanks Perch, I'm not the greatest at this stuff and don't want to lose any of my fishing spots! Mainly the one I found last Tue, where I got me limit of eye's in an 1hr and a half!
