Thread: Navionics ?

  1. #1

    Red face Navionics ?

    Is it possible to type up coordinates on a computer and then upload them to a chart plotter, in particular, a Lowrance hook 7

    Re: Navionics ?

    Yes. Just a case of having software in your computer that can save a file in a format your GPS can read. Lowrance used to exclusively use their .USR file format but a lot of units now are also capable of using a .GPX ( GPS exchange) format. Their are plenty of programs available. EasyGPS is a freeware one I have played briefly with. I use GPSU (not freeware) though most of the time now.

    Out of interest I tried the links but they don't work. But I'm using an iPad so that could be the reason.

    IPad, bottom LHC of screen should be a button to optimise for iPad. If that doesn't work search for E Z Mark by Owen in Electronics.

    Only for the odd conversion if GPSU doesn't suit the required format.

    BabelGPS, Pretty good for converting between different file extensions. Have had to convert a few files for friends and haven't had any problems.
