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.

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Basskisser, You will love the lake. Compared to other sizeable lakes in MN the traffic is much lower.  Plus Vermilion has so much shoreline with great bays everywhere.  I always have a rod rigged with a Rapala DT6 in red crawdad color and another set up with a fintech jig and tube in either a crawdad brown or green pumpkin.  The Rap works great if you want to cover water and just bounce it down a rocky shoreline.  The tube is perfect for throwing under docks or submerged rocks that your sonar points out.  Good luck and have fun.  There is some great bass fishing on Vermilion.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.
