I have an 898c SI Humminbird Unit. I use the HumminbirdPC software to backup my waypoints and such. I'd like to enter waypoints in the HumminbirdPC software (much more user friendly than entering them on the unit), upload them to the SD card, and then load them onto the unit from the SD card... only I can't figure out how to do it. The HumminbirdPC software seems to think I can, but I can't find on the unit where to import waypoints from, only export them to the card.

The user's manual for this model doesn't mention being able to do this either... anyone know if this is possible?

I did upload the waypoints successfully to the SD card from the software and hoped that the unit would magically find them there, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

I'm an idiot.

I was thinking the unit would read the card on start-up. Turns out if the unit is on and you pop the SD card in, that'll read it.

Sorry, had to laugh hammer sounds like I'm not the only one who has 'almost' the latest equipment and not that familiar with understanding it all.
Waypoints? Man, have you looked at the Hummingbird web site?

God Bless
