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

Also, when Im downloading points from my computer, if says "Lake of the Woods has not been unlocked by your GPS". I really need help on this so any information would be great. Thanks.

    • Well this warm winter should help out this coming year pretty well.
    • Well, today was both awesome and extremely disappointing. We hadn't been hunting my pintail, wigeon and mottled duck spot because I had heard it got beat up pretty bad over the weekend and I wanted to let it rest for a few days & build some birds back up. Got all set up & had enough pintails work to make it interesting, but the wigeon were pretty much a no-show. The majority of the pins (a couple thousand!) landed to the west about 1/2 mile away in an area I've never seen birds work. Buddy shot one, and we had a flock of 8 buzz us while we were picking dekes (as they always do). On the plus side, we were only 1 bird short of our pintail limit (2 hens didn't make the pic) and 2 of them shot their first pintail. One guy that has been hunting for 25 years shot 2 gorgeous pins that are wall bound, the other guy that shot his firsts got a drake and a hen. All had sprigs but some were pulled before the pic to save for mounting as we didn't want them to get broken during transport. Also not pictured are 2 drake shovelers and a drake and hen red. All in all a slow day but my buds were ecstatic. Tomorrow, we head to a lake that I've never hunted but has had a lot of cinnamon teal (as well as bwt, gwt, wigeon, gads, fulvous and whistling ducks, pins and mallards) shot out of it this year. Wish us luck!!
