Transferring GPS Data

5 posts in this topic

Does anyone have any information on a utility that will transfer or convert GPS waypoints and tracks from a Magellan MapSend program to a Lowrance MapCreate program?

I want to transfer the above info from a Magellan Marine to a Lowrance Expedition GPS without having to type in all the coordinates. But I have not found any other way! frown.giffrown.gif

I think Lowrance has a utility for Garmin data but that is all I find!!

Thanks for any help!!

Easy GPS is just that. Easy! It's fast and easy to use and when I've used it, flawless. I was worried about transferring data from Magellan to Lowrance, but it was no sweat.

Easy GPS is great, I also use GPS Trackmaker, that one is free as well and it has a few more features.

WOW.... Hadn't checked out the new version of GPS TrackMaker until this thread came up. Now they interface with google earth...... very cool.

Check it out if you get a chance, just do a google search, version 13 is the new one.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
