Import waypoints SD
« on: June 21, 2016, 06:20:38 AM »
Hello friends,
I recently bought my matrix97 and would like to insert waypoints.
Before he used OpenCPN and garmin homeport, so I have my waypoints in *.gpx, *.wpt and *.gdb

Is it possible by SD card have my waypoints in the matrix?
I tried to insert with the software HumminbirdPC but when I insert the card into the GPS does not show anything.


Thanks

If you imported your Waypoints into HBPC and allowed HBPC to put the Waypoints into the SD Card ... HBPC should have created the Matrix folder on the SD Card ...

Can you open the SD Card on your PC to see if the Matrix folder is actually on the SD Card ... ??

Yes, the folder and the file is inside. But when I enter the SD in GPS no option to import waypoints appears. I do not know what to do

Try inserting the SD Card (with the Nav data) into the unit before powering on the unit ...

Your unit may have old enough software to need this sequence to recognize the command ...

I think I'm understanding that the unit was powered on ...and then the SD Card was inserted ...

Try inserting the SD Card and then power on the unit ...

Are you using a SD Card or a SDHC card ...??

That old of software would need to use a SD Card ... Not a SDHC ...

Software to enable reading the SDHC type SD Cards was not until much later than your version ...

I think there was a max size SD Card needed for units running older software ...

Can you find a regular SD Card (not SDHC) in 8gb or less ... ??

Try a smaller SD Card for importing Waypoints ...

I tried with a 64mb SD and still do not see anything. Waypoints file occupies 100kb, I do not think space is the problem.

If I update it is possible that the problem is corrected? Is there any changelog versions?
