YES the EDGE WILL WORK IN AN ELITE 5
~ Captain Paul's response to: ~ KEITH ~
Yes! But, to clear a possible mis-understanding, the CAPTAIN PAUL’S FISHING EDGE PROGRAM IS NOT A “SD” OR MEMORY CARD.
The Edge programs are files that are designed to be downloaded into your GPS unit either via a data cable or by means of a memory card. They are sent via email as an attachment.
If your Elite unit can accept such downloads via the memory card, then it can use the EDGE program. You will however need the Lowrance data transfer program that is available as a free download. Their GPS Data Manager-6 (GDM-6) is available on their web site at http://www.lowrance.com/en/Downloads/GPS-Data-Manager-GDM/
To load the data into your unit, you would open the EDGE file in the GDM program, view and or edit it and transfer it to the data card that would be placed in your Elite unit. Using the MENU feature in your unit you would then transfer the data from the card into the internal memory of the unit. All of the EDGE waypoints will then show on whatever mapping program you have in your unit.
The EDGE file comes with a general map of the area and complete instructions how to accomplish the download. Your owners manual describes how to transfer the data to and from the memory card on pages 25 to 29.
