.GPX files on handheld Lowrance?

I am a Park Ranger and I plan to post a .GPX file on the Park Service public website, which will allow visitors to download the tracks and waypoints for out park's thirty miles of paddle trails. Can a Lowrance (handheld GPS) owner download and use a .GPX file obtained in this way? I know products from other manufacturers can.

Geocache list doesn't show on gps


Basecamp is displaying the contents of the gpx file. This means you've correctly imported the gpx file into Basecamp.

A copy of the gpx file needs to be separately saved into the "GARMIN/GPX" folder on your GPS via USB and your computer. (Note: I believe your Oregon has the same file structure as my Garmin Montana).

On startup, your GPS will read the new data and display the caches.

ENDURA POWER BUTTON BROKEN


Sounds like the power button is pulled loose from the circuit board or the power switch went bad for some reason. You can't check this out as it is sealed to be waterproof and opening it violates the warranty. The only way to address this would be to send in to Lowrance Customer Service.

This should not be a common problem and should be covered by manufacturers warranty if still within the 1 yr warranty period. If out of warranty, Lowrance Customer Service should still be able to replace or repair it for some sort of cost.

To speak with US based Lowrance Customer Service, call toll-free at 1-800-324-1356, Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 4:45 pm Central. Or email them at products@lowrance.com with problem, product model and serial number (located between the batteries in the battery compartment). CS On Hold times range between 0 and 4 minutes right now with Monday mornings being their busiest times.

How do you get geocaches on a lowrance endura gps. plez help


Loading Geocaching information on the Endura Safari GPS
You can load individual caches into the Safari as a .loc file or load a pocket query file of up to 500 caches as a .gpx file.

The trick with the Safari is to load these onto the unit using the data cable that comes in the box. Connect the Safari to your computer using the data cable and transfer your .loc or .gpx files into the GPX folder on the device.

These files have to be in this GPX folder to be recognized by the device. It will not work if you load the .loc or .gpx files onto a microSD card and insert it into the bottom of the Safari. I am told that this will be fixed in the 1.2 software update that is supposed to come out at the beginning of December.

Once you have the files loaded, all you have to do is disconnect from the computer and wait for the Endura to restart, go to Main Menu --> Find --> Geocaches and see all of the caches listed. For .loc files, there will be limited information provided from Geocaching.com. For .gpx pocket query files, you will have access to the full description, cache size, terrain difficulty, find log and hints. The great thing about the Endura GPS products is that they have a great filter function for geocaches. I use this with my 7 yr old daughter when I only want to find caches that are easier to find and have full size traditional caches that are more likely to have better "treasure" inside. Hope this helps. Have fun!

HOW COULD I TRANSFER MY FAVORITES FOLDER FROM MY GERMIN 765T TO MY NEW ONE SAME MODEL ?


Connect your Garmin to PC with USB cord. Open Garmin/GPX folder and copy the current.gpx file to pc and rename it to temp.gpx. Then copy the temp.gpx back to the new Garmin/GPX folder. Unplug Garmin. Turn off/on and your favorites should be back.

Data card lost all it data


I don't know how it would have "lost" all it's data. More likely is all of it's data was "erased" or "deleted".

Take the card out and put it into your computer or someone else's Iway and see if the file folder is still on there. It probably is. You might just need to reset your Iway. You also might try downloading the newest software update (ver 1.3) from the Lowrance website. http://www.lowrance.com/en/Products/Automotive/iWAY-250C/Downloads/iWAY-250C-Software-Update/
This is not the maps, it's just the software for the unit itself.

If the map file actually isn't on the card anymore, then ask yourself:
Did you make a data card backup to your computer like the user manual suggests?
If yes, put the backup file onto a 2GB SD card and stick it back into your Iway.
If no, then you're out about $90 to buy a new set of maps. They come from Navtec, you can't buy them from Lowrance because Lowrance doesn't produce them.
Good luck

Unable to send and open data sent to my Garmin GPS from Anquet map. I planned a route on my Anquet map software with wayponits etc but was uable to send it to my gps. I have enquired with Anquet and they...


Currently, the POI Loader only supports CSV files because that is the format that most data vendors support. POI Loader may support additional formats in the future.

MapSource only supports .mps, .gdb and .gpx files. You can save files as .txt files if you wish to use this data in other applications.

Sadly Garmin does not produce any software which can convert .txt files.

However, this maybe possible with GPS Utility. Please note GPS Utility is not Garmin software and Garmin does not support this. Click on the following link for more information:
