    Question Lowrance Elite 5 help - is there an easy way to enter my waypoints/ gps marks on PC?

    Hey chaps,
    Just bought a new Elite 5 with the navionics maps package.
    I have all of my marks on my handheld gps and obviously need to transfer them to the new sounder.

    Is there a way I can plug the SD card straight into my PC and enter them from there?
    Or
    Do I have to spend hours and hours sitting in the boat and entering them all using the unit interface?

    I'm assuming because you can download your gps marks, you must be able to upload? Just can't workout how to do it?

    DO NOT PUT OUR MARKS ON OUR MAP CARD!

    Copying anything to or from the map card will most likely wipe it and warranty will not cover it.

    You need to buy a blank SD Card (2gb, make sure it's got the micro sd in it as well) and then copy your marks from you gps to your computer.

    Convert them into the appropriate file type (.gpx will work on almost anythign from memory), copy them to this blank card, put it in your unit and then go into your menu (press the menu key twice) go to System and then I think Files (this is all from memory lol) and then copy the marks over to the unit.

    THEN put in your untouched Navionics card.

    Cheers,

    Sam
