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.
