6 posts in this topic

I have the garmin gps 76, and I was wondering if it was possible to download maps with the Hot Spots software. Thanks much!

If you are referring to the GPSMAP 76 yes it is. In your hotspots software use the map tool to select the map you want the go to transfer or save to device icon and when you click on it make sure that "map" is selected the go ahead and transfer this will transfer the map and the hotspots for that lake. Real easy. Hope this helps.

I just have the GPS 76, and the reason I was wondering is because in the bottom left corner of the screen, it says no map. I dont know how to get this off, or what Im doing wrong, so any help would be great. One more question, would a small custom calaborated map fit on this unit? Thanks!

I have a map 76 also, but I'm not sure if you can download into the 76.
Try the garmin HSOforum they have just about any info on any of their units.

The Garmin GPS 76 is not a mapping GPS is it? I have the Map 76 and you can download software, waypoint etc. The Garmin Web Site should have all the answers you need

    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.

    • So I'm finally getting ready to get the boat wet for the first time this year.   I noticed last night the steering wheel is very tough to turn.  I did done research on some older threads on this site containing to my problem.   One tip I read was to check the big nut next to the motor on the steering arm.  Its printed on the nut -caution**tighten.  Some one said that nut should be loose.  Mine was wrenched tight apparently.  Does the warning on the nut mean , make sure its tight or do not wrench tight???  Btw it's a 05' mercury 115 if that makes any difference.   I will also re lube and clean the components also to see if it makes a difference.   Thanks for any input!!
    • Hey team, last miute success for the team...... nice tom too!!! Heading on vacation today will submit it mid next week when I get back. 22.11lbs with 10 3/4 beard. 
    • I will admit to this :   there are a couple of crystal clear, cold lakes in Yukon,  within a mile or so of my cabin, where you COULD actually eat and enjoy pike. They did not compare to some nice Grayling but  you COULD eat them. I'm not a fish eater unless it is fresh king salmon or kind crab but quite a few folks would eat the pike. And I will admit to enjoying a chunk of walleye now and then so long as it is slathered in hot sauce and I have had 13 double Makers Marks. But hey!.....you fellas enjoy them!
