Lowrance Waypoint Symbols

4 posts in this topic

I am new to this forum and looking to purchase ExpertGPS to edit Lowrance HDS Gen 3 waypoints. My concern is whether ExpertGPS allows one to edit Lowrance waypoint symbols and then import them back into the HDS unit where they appear with the same color and symbol as in ExpertGPS. I can't find a definite, clear answer to this questions anywhere so any insight from ExpertGPS users would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!!

ExpertGPS won't give your HDS new symbols that it didn't already have. ExpertGPS lets you quickly mark waypoints and assign any of the existing symbols on your HDS to them.

Just to be clear, ExpertGPS will allow me to select a different HDS symbol (including a different color) when editing and import the replacement HDS symbol and other data back into the HDS unit. If so, I'll be ordering the software!

Waypoint color is a Lowrance HDS-specific thing. ExpertGPS doesn't let you change the color of waypoints, but it will let you change the symbol.
