Thanks for the help. I was able to go back out today and locate those structures. Few of the gps coordinates were spot on and the others I had to look around a little but they were close. I didn't have much time before dark but I did manage about 10 or so. It was catch and release Friday. I didn't download the snapshots but rather took a pic with my phone so they are a little fuzzy.

WE BOTH HAVE THE SAME UNITS! It`s really Kool when you can put the Coords in @ home and go out and see if there`s anything sitting on them. Have you experimented with any other color palettes? Some of them really make the images stand out & others not so much.

I like it when a plan comes together. Even better with some thump!

I've changed up the SS/DI a time or two but I like the blue/white palette. I haven't messed with the 2D.

I don`t know who you were directing your question to but www.earthpoint.us is a good one.

It turned out to be operator error (figures). I was entering the waypoints wrong. The coordinates are in degree/decimal minutes but they have one more digit than the Lowrance format. Just drop the last digit when entering. They are already becoming very popular...even with the bass fishermen.
