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!

    • I would say your results speak for themselves, we often do things that don't make sense or trade short term gain for long term trouble. Nature does things for a reason that we often don't understand, why try to fix what isn't broken?
    • Two charter boats. (11 people) Fishing was very slow last Sunday afternoon (8), but we did really well on Monday morning (43). Due to bad luck drawing cards, neither Mrs Duff or I touched a rod on Sunday. She went 5 for 5 on Monday. That's fishing for ya though. And true fishermen understand that.   Some real nice fish this year, good luck to those that make it out there.      
    • And no, it does not have some sort of virus. They are calling it a phishing site and it is not. It competes with Google adsense so it make sense for Google to be sloppy in their algorithm.
    • Great storytelling with pictures on a portion of your life experiences in the  great outdoors.  Thanks for sharing Len.  
    • Len - This was a very nice article.  I enjoyed your writing style.  Take care.
    • I am going to pick up a box to pattern against what I am shooting now. Here is my question. They are available in both 1 3/4 oz. shot and 1 7/8 oz. shot in 12 gauge. In a 3" 12 gauge #5 shot shell, that comes out to a 21 pellet difference. The velocity for 1 3/4 is 1200 fps, for 1 7/8 is 1080. At 20 yards it would make very little difference, but say at 45 yards would you rather have the extra 21 pellets or the added velocity? I suppose the answer is to buy both and pattern them, but I am curious as to the thoughts of the folks on this board. Thanks
    • I was looking to get an otter XT pro cabin this winter, I was wondering of anyone on here has an otter in the pro platform and how they like the extra insulated walls. Does it seem bulky? Too warm on above 0 days? I wouldn't mind just the normal cabin but they only offer it with a bench it seems but having the extra insulation may be nice to have for those cold days here and there. 
    • Thank You for the very interesting and enjoyable morning read
