gps lakemaster chips ?

6 posts in this topic

When you save a waypoint with your chip in the unit, does it save to the unit or the chip or both. I put a 113 lowrance on my new boat and am getting a chip. And I was just wondering for switching the chip to a handheld or a buddies gps if the spots are on there.

Thanks

GRH - you'll need to transfer the waypoints using another data chip.

Garmin does both. My way points are on both the hand held and the gps/chartplotter in the boat even wthout the chip. Then my way points are intalled automatically if I were to insert a differant card like say a topical map.

I thought Lowrance units were simular.

I know my lowrance saves to the unit and I think it saves to the chip aswell.

It saves your waypoints to the unit. If you want you can also save them to a blank SD card in case you want to transfer them to another unit or back them up on your computer, etc.

It will display those waypoints whether you're using the built-in base map (ie. no map card), or a map card like Navionics or LakeMaster
