I have waypoints set on the larger lakemasters chip, but recently purchased a helix that has the smaller chip. How can I transfer them over? Thanks.

I thought the way points were saved on the unit not the Lake Master chip. You can get a micro card and down load the way points then upload them to your new unit.

Correct. Waypoints are stored in the units memory not map cards

Humminbird PC, down load the file to the HBPC from the old card and upload from HBPC to the smaller card. As simple as drag and drop.
