I exported save waypoints from my 597ci-hd onto memory card, and then tried to import the waypoints to my Helix 7. The Helix 7 asked me if I wanted to import, I clicked on yes, but the waypoints do not show up..

I formatted the card in the Helix and and tried the process again. It does not ask me to import the waypoints again. No saved waypoints from my 597 appear on my Helix 7. What gives?

My guess is that they are on the Helix now but blocked from view for some reason. Did you have screen shots turned on on the 597 when you saved them? Might be turned off on the Helix. When you tried the 2nd time did you power the unit up first and then install the card?

When I tried the second time the Helix did not ask to import, both when I put in the card before power or after power. The Helix only recognizes waypoints I saved while boating with the Helix.

Humminbird tech support is suggesting I remove the card and re-set the Helix to factory defaults. Start the Helix and then insert the card. I will try that, jotting down my current settings first.

Retrying did the trick. I cannot say if it was equipment error or operator error.
