CAPTAIN PAUL'S EDGE FILE IS DESIGNED FOR A LOWRANCE GPS SYSTEM
~ Captain Paul's response to: ~ Jeff Bishop~
The CAPTAIN PAULíS FISHING EDGE OF GPS WAYPOINTS will work in any Lowrance GPS system that can take a computer download.
The selection for a Lowrance system indicates that it is either for a Lowrance or Eagle GPS system. Both are made by LEI Electrionics.
To use download feature of the EDGE files, you must have a Lowrance approved Data Transfer Program. Lowrance offers their GPS DATA MANAGER -6 (GDM-6) program as a FREE download from their web site. (http://www.lowrance.com/en/Downloads/GPS-Data-Manager-GDM/
Once downloaded, you would open the Captain Paulís Edge file in the GDM-6 program, view the data and transfer it to a SPARE memory card. Once inserted in your GPS unit the waypoint data is transferred into the internal memory of the unit. All of the waypoints will appear as overlays on whatever mapping program you have in your GPS unit.
Even if you donít purchase the EDGE file, you should download the data manager program as it will let you backup the routes, tracks and waypoints in your GPS unit to a computer file.
The EDGE file comes with a general map of the area that lists all of the waypoints. This Acrobat pdf file cannot be loaded into your GPS unit but should be printed and brought along as a backup.
Instructions are included with the program.
The EDGE files can ONLY be purchased on the LOUISIANA Sportsmanís OUTDOOR STORE web site.
