H2O C hints

Question

Iceseeker

I have the H2O C and would not trade it. I do have a couple of questions though. can you find the distance between 2 saved waypoints? Also, can you save a waypoint by name rather than 001 and then rename it?

If anyone has the answer it will be fellow member of this information filled site.

Thanks to all,

Absolutely you can rename points. I dont have it handy, otherwise I would step you through it. Its not tough to figure out though, or get the manual out.

There is so much more I have to learn about what I can do with this thing. What a cool unit.

As with another thread discussing seeing it in bright sunlight, I sure wish it was easier to see during the day. Even with the backlight on, its not easy to read.

I dont have my GPS with me but I think this is how it goes:

Place the cursor on the first waypoint, then go to "Find

Distance" under the "Find" key (either that or the "Menu" key). then move the cursor to wherever you want and it will give you the distance, from that first waypoint, in a straight line. The distance shows up in the lower right hand corner of the screen.

For the waypoint name, you can go in and edit all your waypoints names, symbols, etc... by going to "My waypoints", again under the "Find" key. What you do is when the list comes up, hit enter, then the first waypoint on your list will be highlighted, then you can scroll down and select whichever waypoint you want to work with by highlighting it and pressing enter. then scroll side to side to "Edit Name".

you may have to switch to advanced mode if you already havent to do all this.

Going from memory here but, highlight the waypoint and press enter, I believe. Brings up the info about that waypoint. Select rename on the bottom and hit enter.

To find distance, hit menu, find distance, place cursor on 1st waypoint, hit enter, move cursor to 2nd waypoint.

As for the distance between 2 saved waypoints, there is an item on the menu (I think the first menu) named "Find Distance" and you can set your cursor on one waypoint and move it to the other and it will tell you the distance while drawing a red line in between. You may be able to do this same thing with the "navigate" feature but I really don't use that one much because it is easier to just zoom in/out and get from one spot to another that way.

As for the ?? on saving waypoints - I know of no other way to save a waypoint than have it be numbered and then re-name it afterward. Can use the "find" button immediately after saving and the first item on list will be something like "highlighted item" or something (which will be the waypoint you just saved) and hitting enter will take you to the screen to edit where you can rename.

Hope this helps....

As long as we are on the subject - has anyone with one of these units bought the screen magnifier? Is it worth having?

Thanks for info guys, I may not have been clear in the request. I am aware of the click and drag method for distance but I am interested in the distance between 2 different areas such as cities or lakes that are saved not just the area that you viewing.

I am also aware of the rename menu but was wondering if you save a waypoint from the menu it saves as 001 and then you have to rename it. Can it be saved as the name indicates?

      Sounds like the record of May 23 is looking safe for another year...

      Ice is going fast!  The sun is high and powerful, we're flirting with 70 degrees and the forecast looks promising. I'm feeling pretty confident there will be a lot more open water then most are expecting.  
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      There will certainly be some areas of open water to fish by the opener! Pike Bay ice is deteriorating fairly fast now. Other small shallow bays are probably not far behind. Cliff

      Almost time but maybe not quite... Although I did get the yak out of the backyard today, on to the trailer and up front to spend some time prepping it for time on the water soon.  Indeed it was fun getting out with you and the gang a few times this winter and looking forward to the next outings whenever they may be. WIll share what worked for me and look forward to reading some more info from others. Panfish is what I love going after and I had great fishing with gold jigs almost all winter. Did use a few other colors that worked also but that gold was hard to not use. Tear drop style tungsten in and 4 mm from Widowmaker Lures. Tried some from sportsmens direct also the last couple outings and liked them also. For plastics, the wishbone was good and also impulse mayflies and slug bugs. Tried and bought too many different things to try... LOL. Fished with shrimp for the first time ever this winter and that was a challenge and fun to try something different.  Started out with my good old ultralight gander mountain rods with the frabil titanium spring bobber and then bought a couple of the TUCR Inferno with the orange tip. I really like them for the 4mm and prefer the old ganders with a 3mm. Won a custom 32 inch power noodle from Kichler Custom Rods in Elk River at an event in Wisconsin and used it a few times yesterday. Very nice and looking forward to playing with it more. CGI inline reels still doing their job fine and I did grab one of the new Descent inlines and it worked sweet also. Nice that it now has a pop off spool instead of the gold screw off knob. 10 1/4 was my biggest gill and 14 for the crappie. Even went after catfish 3 times. Saw my first catfish tornado on the vex and iced a lot of fish after being taught how to use a bobber right for those super light biters. thx RickG   My highlight of the winter was getting a PB northern on a tip up up on Mille Lacs with stick in the mud. Fun City! My good old FL 18 is still working dandy and although I am tempted to upgrade, not sure if I will. Nills 6 inch saved my back from the hassles of the gas and when I put the Milwaukee on it life got even better. All in all a fantastic winter fishing with great guys and learning how to be a better fisherman.   Fish On!
