Hi,

I did a survey with a humminbird 597 ci HD and copied the data from the SD card to a pendrive. The file format is in HT? I dont know why but something went wrong?? I got the files in HT format?? Can you do a sonar mosaic from a 597 ci DI HD combo files??

Thanks!!

Welcome to the Humminbird Side Imaging Forums Tiburon78.

When you did your survey, did you make a Sonar Recording or just a Track?  The *.HT files contain Track information.  Sonar Recording files should be in file folder labeled RECORD and will have the *.IDX and *.SON formatting.

You should be able to view a Track using Google Earth.

HumminbirdPC can download Navdata contained in the MATRIX folder on the SD-card(which you should have exported from your unit).
MATRIX folder will contain HB's DATA.HWR and the nn.HT files.  DATA.HWR will contain waypoints and routes.  The .HT files will contain the saved-tracks.  One track per .HT file.

HumminbirdPC can also OPEN the individual HB .HWR and .HT files by using File>Open, then setting Files of Type box.  Choices are GPX files(*.GPX), Humminbird files(*.HWR, *.HT), Garmin files(*.GDP,*.MPS) or Lowrance files(*.LOW, *.USR).  You would change to Humminbird Files(*.HWR,*.HT), then you can select the desired .HT file or select multiple .HT files).

HumminbirdPC can then display the tracks in Google Earth.
