File conversion

Can you take a LeadNav route file with dangers, markers, etc and convert that to Lowrance file?

    Yes. The Pro subscription provides a feature named "Export to GPS Unit". This converts your LeadNav route into a track and audio waypoints into markers and then exports as a GPX file. Newer Lowrance units can accept GPX files directly.

    If you have an older Lowrance unit you can use GPSBabel to convert the exported file into a USR file.

    You can use a free program on your computer named GPSBabel to convert the file. Or send the KML to us and we'll do it if we have time.
