Lowrance and Humbird help

Recommended Posts

Here is my problem. I have a Lowrance 111 on the bow and a HBird 997 on the console. Obviously I cannot network the two and want to transfer my waypoint data from the Bird to the Lowrance as I plan on going with an HD Lowrance when the side imaging is released to the public. I know that somewhere there is software to do this but a bit of a 2nd gear brain on the information highway so to speak. Any help is appreciated, the Bird unit is less than a year old, it might be sold, if not, I am making a good deal on it. Thanks

I dont know the answer to your question but I'll be interested in your bird unit if you need it sold.

I believe it can be done at the Humminbird HSOforum.

You will have to install Humminbird PC program to convert them.

Thats how you do it. Why not just ditch the Lowrance and put another HB on the boat?

I;ve never used the software but I hear lots of guys that like using EasyGPS for waypoint data saving and transferring

Thanks for the information, it is just what I was looking for, I hope. MnFishguy, I am thinking of staying with Lowrance because I like the 111's size on the bow, being an old guy it is easier to read. Also, the HDs have some new programs that look interesting such as the weather feature. All of this is pending on how good their side imaging is though. The one fact is I will never own a boat without side imaging again. One giant step for fisherman, one hurting step for the fish.

I understand the size thing. It sure is nice looking at that big screen. The 1197 is relatively the same size as the bigger Lowrance units and you don't have any software issues and you can use a Navionics chip! grin This is my first year running a Humminbird on the console and doubt I will be going back to Lowrance anytime soon.

You cannot use EasyGPS for a Lowrance to Humminbird transfer.

I was told by a friend that is a rep around later June or early July.

But, these things are always a little late. I have been waiting to see this new SI unit.

July (at the ICAST show) is when they said they would announce details, like pricing and a due date. I haven't heard anything more specific than that.

I think before Lowrance spends alot of time on side scan they should maybe get their down view sonar and updates to work right. Just a thought.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
