Help searching on a HDS unit

4 posts in this topic

I am using both the HDS 5 and 7. Both units have a 2009 Lakemaster chip installed.

I have searched the HSOforum and read the manual but am still having a problem (I sure hope it's not the operator!)

I can get to the menu to enter the name of the waypoint, but when I push "enter" to search it, it says "no records found".

Example: I try to search for "The graveyard", or "7 mile flat", it won't find it. The unit will/should pull from the chip?

Thanks

The chip has no waypoints on it. It has contours so you can see the structure. If you want to see those structures you need to move the cursor around the map until you find them. The search function for waypoints are for the waypoints you have previously saved. When you are on a spot you want to save you can create a waypoint name it and later you can search for it. At least this is how it works on my non HDS units and 08 chip.

I think eyebjim is correct, it sounds like you're searching for waypoints that don't exist yet. You need to set the waypoints in your hds units, then you can search and view them.

Thanks for the info...

What you are saying makes sense. I guess since I can see these names on the page I figured I would be able to search for it.

Thanks again

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
