I have used EasyGPS for down/up loading my waypoints/routes for a few years now and it works well. I think there is an ExpertGPS version as well but all I want it for is up/downloading so the Easy one is good enough for me.

The only negative comment I have is the printing side is a bit restrictive. If I'm going on a new trip I also carry laminated maps and the route plan. I end up typing the route plan into Word and printing it from there.

Hope that helps

Mark

Cheers,

Been playing about with it this weekend looks good, had a look at expert, is as you said. Not ried the printing yet but it looked a bit crude.

Thanks Mark

I also downloaded EasyGPS, It's just what i've been looking for. Saved me paying for Garmin's CD.

Cheers

Graham

Our club is considering an easygps list on our website the main reason being we can download waypoints if we are away and they all get wiped out of the boats gps.

The only problem is checking that the ones we are given are accurate!
