transfering gps coords from lowrance to humminbird?

15 posts in this topic

I did it the old fasion way. Wrote them down and then put them in my bird. That way I didnt put in all the ones that really werent good to start. It takes a while but I did it in the garage when it was raining one night.

Is that what you meant? If not ask away and maybe I can help more.

On their HSOforum there is an application you have to download to your PC and it takes it over from there. You will need a card reader to take the Lowrance waypoints and upload them, they get converted to a format that the Humminbird unit will understand, you download the converted waypoints back to a SD card and then install that in the new unit. Clear as mud, huh? It is pretty simple once you dig into it. I just looked, it is right on the main page of their site. Bottom left corner. Look for Waypoint management.

When I converted my waypoints from my GlobalMap 3300c, HumminbirdPC wouldn't read the data in my .usr file, it came up with no waypoints. SO, I used a free program from the web called GPS Trackmaker ( just google it ) and I opened my exported Lowrance files in that program, everything came up just fine, clicked on File and SAVE AS and then the file type was set to .gpx and your done with the conversion. Then I used HumminbirdPC to open the file and put the .gpx file onto a SD Card and it brought my waypoints into the Humminbird just fine.

You should be able to do all of this thru HumminbirdPC but for some reason it didn't work for me.

What Humminbird model do you have Lucky? I have a Nav card in mine and it works perfectly. Do you have dual slots? I think the Nav cards can only be in one certain slot.

    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate.
