Just for future reference, of course.

Firstly I had to re-format the sd card. I had sonar files & setup configs saved to the card from the plotter. When I put the card into my laptop, I couldn't see the files on the card from the plotter. I thought that maybe the files were in some strange format that only the plotter could see, so I wasn't worried. I wrote the waypoints file to the card on my PC & put the card back into the plotter, the plotter didn't see the waypoints file. Basically plotter & PC were only seeing the files that they themselves had written. I formatted the card & started again, this time both sets of files appeared on both devices & I was able to import my waypoints into the plotter. When it came to exporting the waypoints from the plotter to sd card, you select the region of waypoints to export ("region" or "all") This brings up a dialogue box with 2 buttons on it "Export" & "NMEA0183" Me being slow on the uptake assumed that the nmea0183 was the target destination for the export, so was clicking the nmea button expecting to get a drop down list of target destination options, Nope! You have to click the export button first, this gives you a list of target destinations, select the target (left SD card in my case) & click export again. simples when you know how. There is no mention at all in the manual regarding import/export of waypoints, routes etc.
Rule#2: Never argue with an idiot. He'll drag you down to his level & then beat you with experience.
Rule#3: Tha' can't educate pork.
Rule#4: See rule#5
