Lowrance H2O help / conecting to P.C.

Recommended Posts

Cheers

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.

Don't bother emailing Lowrance they are super slow to respond. Always call them.

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.

      Hi Wanderer, I am going up this weekend too.  Glad the weather will be warm! I will try a different pit this time, but had good luck last year.  I hope the fish will be active and hungry.

      Thanks Rick! Jeff hope to make it always a good time and laughs when you get a group of great people together. I usally do more jaw jacking  then fishing at these things but for me its just as much fun 
    • Rick
      I will donate a few goodies. I will send it to @Tom Sawyer if he messages me his address.

      Lol! Smurfy  Its not as easy to identify areas like the old days the ice towns in Mertens bay and in front of Steils old house on cedar island aren't there like years of past but she's still the same chain that you grew up on. And IMO better than when we wee younger. 
    • Wanderer
      @Roscoe010 I wanted to head that way yesterday but my fishing partner didn’t have that kind of time.  If I get there this weekend, I’ll let you know. Or hopefully someone else knows and will reply.
    • smurfy
      i'm considering going out sat to chase walleyes, cats or crappies................OK whatever will bite. whats frustrating is i live 5 mile from the chain, grew up in richmond and all these maps have me confused??????????
    • DonBo
      Toying with the idea of heading up there Saturday morning. Only been there a couple times, never on the opener.
    • JBMasterAngler
      Anyone go out on the opener? I usually wait a week before heading up there, so curious to hear some ice/fishing reports.
    • Roscoe010
      Did any of you check out the pits for winter trout opener last weekend? Thanks!
