Lowrance H2O help / conecting to P.C.

5 posts in this topic

I would apreciate any help you can offer. THANKS ! I would like to buy a new gps and am concidering ether H2O or Garmin 76csx. My concern with the H2O is I am not sure if I can tie it to my computor and store waypoints and routes so when I loose or replace the gps I dont lose all the information. I would also like to load maps into my pc and create waypoints and routes and have them go into the gps.

I sent a email to Lowrance about 5 days ago asking if I could do this and they didnt bother to respond. The 2 dealers localy know gps stuff but not the computor side, neither did Cabelas.

Any sugestions would be apreciated. THANKS. ps please keep it simple as I dont understand computors or gps very much.

Cheers,

Feel free to call me @ 651-247-6053. The questions you are asking can get quite technical and long. I could put up a 2 page post and you probably still wouldn't have all of your questions answered.

With Lowrance units, you save to chip and save the chips as backup.

You buy a blank MMC card, about $25 depending on where and how many mb. Insert card, press menu, transfer my data, save or load? You will store your trails and waypoints. You can then transfer them to any other Lowrance unit you may have or keep as backup. I go back and forth from my ifinder and 332. Its all in your manual.

If you have mapping software on your computer you can use your iFinder for a GPS, just do a search for GPS to USB, then look for the appropriate cable style for iFinder.

      All we ever use is a few bigger spilt shots and float/bobber with crawlers.

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret
