Capt Paul,

I have some trails that were created and stored on my computer in the .gpx format. I would like to transfer those trails to my Lowrance HDS head unit. I downloaded a copy of the EasyGPS program. Any suggestions on the best way to accomplish the data transfer to my GPS Unit? Will I need to convert the file to another format? Thanks....

Capt Paul,

I purchased the edge program for Lk Pontchartrain and Delacroix areas and both have been used in my Lowrance LCX 113HD unit. Recently I sold the 113HD unit and am looking to buy one of the new Lowrance Gen 2 Units. A few questions for you;

1. Will I be able to transfer the waypoints from the edge series to the newer unit. If so, would the same steps as the previous installation apply? If not, how?

2. There are many retailers selling the new HDS units with various mapping programs installed($1,500 and higher). I saw one unit listed for a good price ($1200) with the base map only installed.

I plan to buy and use either a Navionics or the Standard Mapping series (for Delacroix) card for the new unit so it seems to me, it would be a waste of money to buy a unit with any other map programs installed, especially since the price increase is $300-600. Am I right?
