    Well I paid for a bunch of it. Mapping chips, waypoint chips and a whole bunch of guide trips

    Can I download waypoints from a 73dv to a sd card and up load that card to a 7608xsv, or do I have to go though all the Homeport stuff?

    Export or save them to the card in the 73. You should be able to then just copy them to the sd card you use in the 7608 or put that card in the 7608 and import them.

    Now if we could only get Homeport to support depth shading and route creation like the lake vu ultra has it would be one hell of a program

    How do I convert lowrance .usr files to .gpx so I can transfer waypoints from my old lowrance to new garmin?

    I thought some Lowrance units would export the files as GPX? If not, google GPS Babel. Its a program for converting GPS files into different formats.

    I've converted my waypoint file using GPS Babel from lowrance USR to GPX XML. Now copying data from my memory card to my garmin following the path User Data > Manage Data > Data Transfer I have two options, Merge from Card or Replace from Card, which do I pick?

    I would merge first. Then check for duplicates and delete those. If you replac e, you might loose some of the ones already on the device.

    The device is brand new I've not installed a waypoint or track on it yet so I guess maybe it doesn't matter which, I was just confused why there were two options and wasn't clear on the difference. I guess one adds data without affecting current data in memory while the other wipes old data completely out and replaces it with whats on the memory card?

    After every trip I export from my unit to the card. I then make my name changes and icon changes in homeport and export back to the card and save on top of the original file. I then delete all waypoints from my unit and then insert the card and choose replace.

    Troy, when you do that, do the icons in Homeport get changed in the MFD? I cant seem to get the ones I pick in Homeport to stick.

    I've figured out which ones in homeport work with the 7600 series. Most of my waypoints are brush piles and timber so I use the single gree tree for brush and the single blue tree for timber. If you set them for something the unit doesn't support it changes the to the standard .

    Sure would be nice if they made that easier to figure out or better yet, standardized them between Homeport and the MFD's so they matched up.
