downloading waypoints

8 posts in this topic

Help,

I have a Lowrance LMS 330C unit

Ihave been trying to download my wapoints off of the unit onto a chip to be reloaded to my computer so I can save and manage the waypoints.

When I download off of the unit the data is saved as a usr file. However,

when I try to upload this file to my lowrance data manager file it will not recognize this file. any idea of what I am doing wrong?

thanks in advance.

jlehn,

I had the same problem, but it was trying to import the waypoints into lakemaster promap software.

make sure you are saving the data from your 330 in ver. 2 not ver. 3. Version 3 saves waypoints with depth v 2 only saves lat/lon data no depth.

When I switched it to v. 2 the LM software took all the data and plotted the points on the lakes that I fish.

Thanks for the info

one other question how can you download from ver 2 and not ver 3?

sounds like that might be the problem.

When you go to save the waypoints, it'll ask you what version to save as. will check my unit tonight when I get home from work.

if I remember right, I do not get a chance to select a version. It goes straight to the card. ?????????????

Make sure your active screen is the map screen, you can do that by hitting the pages button twice and it will highlight map, menu twice, transfer data, enter, save, you will get a window that asks where you want to save the data, the third box will be version, select ver.2. It will save the data as data.usr.

Just did it on my LCX-25c, I also have a LMS-337c works the same on both of those units, so I would guess that the 330 is the same.

What Version of software are you running in the unit itself?

They didn't add Version 3 until the last 2 upgrades

hey walleyewild you were correct

I got it figured out with your help

went back into systems setup and lo and behold it was on version 3. I figured that was the new version which I uploaded a month or so ago. so switched it to version 2 and it sucked the waypoints right down. Now that I have them saved and loaded into the Lowrance data manager is there any program you are running like google earth that you would recommend to play around with the points? thanks again for your help

I use lakemaster promap software, gives me a great way of looking at what area's I've been fishing, it's nice to see a large area and what might be simular to the area I've been fishing.

jlehn, my pleasure with the help.

    •   Thats the thing, I can't find really any good pictures of one. I was given this auger a few days ago buy a guy who didn't use or want it.  He only used it once when he forgot his power auger. There is a string with a price tag on it for $89. It was sitting in his machine shed in a corner collecting dust.   I cleaned up the auger and touched it up. There was a slight ding in the auger flighting up a turn or two from the bottom. That I fixed. However,  the mounting head for the blades didn't have any of the original powder paint damaged, none had flaked off, and there was no rust spots. The blades where rusted up but not damaged. I assume if they were bent the powder paint would have expanded & flaked off. The two blade angles seem to look like they are how they should be. So I'm really kinda leaning that the blade mounts might not be bent with the way it looks.    If I look at the shaver blades from the top or bottom they look like a normal shaver blade. However, when looked at from the side they seem to have a very slight curve that matches the blade mount. Did jiffy have a design like this different from the others? So I'm confused.......what would be the odds of both the blade mount sides being bent to what looks like exact angles.......if they were bent what is the odds of both blades seeming to conform to the bends without cracking or breaking........I measured from one outside blade edge to the other and got 8in......but I know 8in augers can go from a range of 7.5in-8.5in depending on brand and other things......If the blade mount ads were bent I would think some powder paint would have flaked off.......I'll do the ice bucket trick.....was hoping someone had one or could chime in. It looks a little like a design between a flat shaver and a curved blade if it's not bent......I do really like the design if that is what it is meant to be. I just really don't know if they are bent or not bent. Confusing..... 
    • I wax every exposed part of the string. 
    • BD!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i wasnt good enough for a lakeside lot!!!!!!!!!!!
    •   Is that you, or the back of BD then?

    •   Ok but you told BigDave huh? Maybe he'll give it up?
    • Hi guys,   I am a beginner and just purchased a Matthew Halon bow last year.  However, I haven't waxed the bowstring and figured I should do it before this season starts.   My bowstring doesn't seem to have any colors on it showing where to avoid waxing it.    Can somebody explain or direct me to a video on where to avoid waxing on the bowstring of a Matthew Bow?  I know the part about rubbing the wax into the string good, but I am unsure which part of the bowstring to avoid waxing exactly.    Thank you.

    • I am just an outsider looking in, so I have an opinion and that is all it is not fact. I have fished Mille Lacs quite a bit over the last 3-4 years.  The fishing has just gotten better. I don't know if it is because the fish really are lacking a food source or if there are just that many fish in the lake. This past Monday we were there to chase smallies. While we did do OK on the smallmouth we did happen to catch 6 walleye up on the rock in 6-12 ft. All looked fat and healthy. Seemed unusually shallow for this time of year. I don't care if this lake stays catch and release only. It is a blast catching 10-15 walleye over 20in in an afternoon. I just hope that "IF" the walleye population is on the decline that politics and special interests, including the tribes, will be able to step back and allow the lake to be managed as necessary to keep this incredible fishery alive. Just my opinion.
