Can anyone shed some light on the Navionics maps used by Lowrance for their marine GPS. Is it possible to copy these maps? I have a friend how just bought a Lowrance HDS-7 and it only comes with the base map. I have an Elite 5m colour chartplotter which comes with the Navionics XL9 gold chart for the whole of Australia and would like to do a copy of the card for him. I haven't actually had a look at the sd card yet on the PC as I'm still on minesite and he only asked me today. Any help on this matter would be appreciated. Thanks.
No,you can't copy the maps!!(i try it and it doesn't work!!)
If you try this is very probably that even into your nav will work again!!!
Don't TRY IT!!!
The maps are made with a code which can be used only one time and only with tha first nav where you put them.
Your friend can buy these maps and stay cool!!!
