Lowrance HDS waypoint import/export

I'm still getting to grips with my HDS. I can't seem to find out how to import waypoints & routes from a card onto the HDS or indeed export my waypoints from the HDS. I can't even find an option to tell the HDS where to store my data. I've got 2 card slots on the unit, one has the Navionics card in it & the other a 32gb microsd card for data. Any clues ?

Cheers Neil, unfortunately the HDS menu structure is different to the lcx/Lms. Can't find the options to import/export/ save. Looks like a call to Lowrance on Monday.


.....sh1t happens.......

I managed to do that, but I don't remember offhand how. I'll poke around and see if I can figure out what I did.

Okay, it looks like I did the following:

Pages; select Waypoints, routes, [whatever]; select Files; point it at your SD card (i only have one); point it at your waypoint database; and then, unfortunately, you're on your own as I wasn't going to re-import data already there.

Hope that helps;

jky

I think I've half solved it but I don't know how. I've managed to import my waypoints into the HDS, but I've only done what I did before which didn't work, so I don't know what I've done differently, which is annoying. I still cant find out how to export. When I go to "export" it only lets me point to nmea0183, not any memory card.
The manuals are woefully inadequate.

Never exported from the HDS, so I'm no help on that one.

Maybe a call to Lowrance (don't know how their CS is in the UK)?

Luck;

Sussed it👍 not very intuitive menu, but I got there. The manual was no help at all.

Care to share how (assuming you remember what you did)?

Just for future reference, of course.
