Question

Dennis Steele

I am having a problem with exporting waypoints to my GPS and I am hoping someone can help.

I have my interface cable plugged into the computer and the GPS properly.

I have tried both COM Port 1 and Com Port 3 (only options I have available.

The GPS is set to a baud rate of 4800 suggested by my manual and computer.

I have tried several of the serial data formats.

I can not export or import any waypoints.

I also have a message in the status line on the GPS that says "Check Wiring"

And When I try to export or import I get a message from my computer that says "device not open"

When I have the GPS interface set to NMEA it makes my computer go haywire. The cursor jumps all over the screen, it highlights and un-highlights all kinds of stuff and moves stuff on my desktop!

Anyone have any ideas what I should try next?

Isn't Paul the go-to guy on Lakemaster? Talk to him Dennis!!

Dennis,

I would see if you have the same problems with other GPS software. The best way to do this is by installing EasyGPS and attempting to upload/download waypoints to your Garmin. If that works, then the problem is with your Lakemaster software. While not a solution, it will allow you to eliminate the Lakemaster software as the problem.

Bt the way, you need to have NMEA data turned off on your GPS unit in order to transfer waypoints.

Let us know how it goes.

On the baud rate, you might try choosing the 'automatic' or 'fastest available' choice...my MMC card cradle (for my i-Finder) is kind of testy about these things, too...

      @leech~~ I believe the permit does require those houses to be moved out of the contest area.  Not necessarily kicked off the lake. That’s what permits are for, eh?  Looks like a great day for you two - congrats!  Might’ve been the lake, the spot or the fisher.  But I’ll go with the lake too.

      Anyone come up with a good way to store the dinette table when fishing? My IC has two holes under the dinette and I put it outside to fish but it is sooooo cold when I turn it into a bed to go to sleep. Thinking of a bracket to hang it inside but I don’t really want to block a window? Any ideas? What do you guys do?

      Went by there today and noticed a few house setup in the contest area.  What happens to them next weekend? They are told to move or get kicked off a public lake? Should have gone to a different lake there Wanderer. Just saying. My son and I today.

      There have been signs there for a long time,   maybe 30 years?

      Good for him making those signs I enjoy his views in a nutshell!

      Access is in good shape at Hole in the Day.  Ice is in good shape and travels MUCH easier than last year.  But that was due to slush getting rutted and refrozen.  These warm temps might play that way again.  But for now all is well. Fishing though... the evening walleye bite was short like usual but finicky for us.  1 - 14 inch eye iced and one other lost.  Set line and shiner was responsible for the 14.  The hooked and lost fish was on a spoon with minnow head but I had to let it hang still for the commitment.  I had several other lookers but they just wouldn’t eat it.  Two lines became one but no bump!  Nice day to be on the lake.
