    I've recently aquired about 200 Lowrance numbers from an older unit...

    They are all for general areas I fish, but my boat is rigged with a Garmin GPS441s,

    does anyone know how to easily convert the lowrance numbers into gps numbers?

    thanks

    On a garmin you can go to the menu
    then go to change numbers
    change coordinate system to loran or TD
    enter your stored numbers on the garmin and save them
    when you change back to lat . lon. they will be saved in that format

    thats probably the fastest way

    Is that why I put the numbers into a hand held garmin it won't accept them? I have it in the wrong mode?
    My father-in-law gave me his hand held and I tried to put in the numbers from this website but it wouldn't accept them???

    most units can do this but each brand has a diffrent way of getting to that option on your screen
