Just spoke to Michael - he suggests copying the data onto a bigger, blank micro or SD card because the Elite units may not like the small size (128meg) of the original card.

Unsure what I have done. My maps on the elite 7 comes up,but when I zoom in the screen is brown and show no coast or water way. All waypoints ans trail are still there. Do I need a new card or is it something simple.

Wish I could help but unsure on this one - sounds like a job for Michael at IO Marine.

Went down to the Vic river last week and why have my waypoints moved 50m either side of my marks?

Righto, I've got the card and now my units, Lowrance Hook reveal 9 & HDS live 12. I opened the card in the Hook unit & found many folders, none Lowrance specific.

I've read the posts I could find on here, they appear the be fairly outdated at present.

How do I find the files to transfer the marks in the Lowrance Hook reveal? What are the specific files called?

Any help appreciated.
