Lenght of Waypoint Names
« on: January 19, 2018, 06:38:12 AM »
I am using an very old 797SI and looking forward to purchase a new HB device.
The waypoint names for the 797 are limited to 11 characters.
Does this limit still exist for newer HB devices also?

Best regards

Wolfgang

Ok, I am from Germany and my English is not the best.
My question from January is not answered jet.
Therefore I try to express my question in other words.

I would like to purchase a humminbird helix 9.
And I would like to know, how many characters a waypoint name can have as a maximum for a Helix sonar.

Best regards

Wolfgang

I was hoping some one with a HELIX would confirm this for you as I don't have a HELIX to test  ...

I will find out and post back for you  ...

It is confirmed on another HB site that the HELIX waypoint character limit is the same as numbered series  ...

One more tidbit ...  It's a good idea to avoid special characters in the waypoint names.  Odd system problems and lockups have been traced back to special characters in waypoint names.
