OK I now have another question but as it is sort of related I will continue in this thread.
One of the issues with the Falklands charts is that they do not show any minor settlement names (i.e. farmhouses etc) and this is useful info to have on the chart.
I have used Mapsource to manually enter waypoints into a database with the placename, symbol and lat/long obtained from a mixture of waypoints on my eTrex and info from Google Earth (which is surprisingly accurate) and successfully imported these waypoints into Homeport so they display on the PC version ... BUT ... can I save this data to the original supplied chart card or will this bugger up the card?
There is loads of space on the original card but as I only have the one copy (I made a spare copy but it won't work in the GPS) I'm not sure if I can do this or if I should try and save them onto another blank SD card, then import them into the Garmin 556 from that. If I do this, will the waypoints still be there when I then put the chart card back in?
Sorry may be a thickie question but the card is too expensive to screw up and I am not sure which way to do it.
