I have the Lakemaster software for my computer and have transferred waypoints that I created on my software to a chip which will load to your graph. I have never transferred waypoints that I created on the lake to my computer software, but I would think you could do it. You need a MMC card reader to do this.

You'll need to buy an SD/MMC card reader, about $20-$25. Make sure it has a USB connection, then just follow the instructions for the card reader on how to upload them from the card in the card reader onto your computer. I bought a $20 Sandisk card reader from Fl--t Fa-- to same them from my Ifinder onto a card and upload to my new 520C, it was REALLY easy.

It is very easy as said above as long as you have the card reader. The card reader is essentially a floppy drive and your SD/MMC cards are floppy disks. When you take the SD card with your waypoints file and put it in the reader, all you have to do is use the Windows Explorer file system to copy-and-paste it to a folder of your choice on your PC. Same goes if you want to move a file from the PC to your SD card.

I transfer my waypoints at the end of every season...i.e., when the boat gets put away I save the waypoints from the locator/GPS to the SD card and name it Fall 06 or something like that. Then I take the card and put it into my H20 and load that file for ice fishing. At the end of winter I'll save a file called Spring 07 from the H20 and then dump that file back into my boat graph and so on. I also will store a copy each time on my PC in case something happens to the SD card. They are fairly fragile and wouldn't put a lot of faith in them.

Good Luck!

      I've got a 53" ski...41"pike and an accidental 22" smallie on V. I have caught a 31" eye but not on vermilion.  Id  like to get a 30 out of there.

      Sunday was more of the same.  Morning bite was strong than waining midday.  Isaac and I managed 30 more walleye sunday morning before heading home. Our biggest for sunday 27" 8lb 4oz.  We caught 6 fish over 23" sunday, (2)23, 24  , (2)26, 27.   River is now open past Wheelers point.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.
