Blank SD card

Don't use your navionics card for computer transfers- get a blank SD card and use that. press 'Pages' on the unit and then scroll to the utilities page (got the shifter and a cog on the screen)- you can then retrieve and save to your cards from there.

My navionics card came with a

My navionics card came with a warning that any attempt to copy/transfer data will result in corruption of the card and render it usless so I would restrict any copying etc to your normal SD memory cards etc.

That's my only complaint with both my HDS 5's - the manual is very basic and does not cover much. but as above plenty can be found on the net.  have only taken it for a test run to date but otherwise impressed (would expect to be going from black and white to colour/broadband).

thanks for the reply ,i,m with you all the way with the instruction guide especially with the twin cardholders not sure which card ,for which slot ,if you got it wrong would you be up for another map card,or could you reverse the process and what program do you use for the pc,cheers......

Its been a while since I had one in the book it tells you one slot has a faster processor for navionics card think its the far right but read up sometimes little things like that are hidden in other items but am sure someone on hear will know
