With these gps marks on the site, what version are they recorded in? I have a lowrance and the numbers look very different to how i enter them.

Hi guys, noticed that I can download the marks in a strange format in excel or in GPX. 

Does anyone know how to convert it to a google earth or lowrance format?

All ready for you..  Lowrance and GE files

I suggest you print off the XL file so you can read the names and notes. (its over 5000!)

Don,  what proggy did you use to transpose the co-ords with ?

I use the "Babel Proggy",and also can import them to "Google Earth" ....

The Babel Proggy, can output to several known brands , ie: Lowrance, Humminbird, Simrad and Raymarine ...

Here is the link to that programme ..........   Babel

Comes in 3 Flavours ,.... Windows / Mac and Linux....

I have recently bought 'GPS Utility' to create Furuno files, but my preferred app is OziExplorer.

Thanks to Don who converted all the GPS marks into the format i needed for my lowrance 😊

There were quite a few marks that had multiple entries and some that i already had - so ended up culling a large number of them - but can't wait to have a look at some of these new spots! 

Not sure what happened with all the marks that had Rob's name in them - they were all clustered off of South America!!! A bit too far for my tub 😀

My pleasure and personal interest.

I didnt pick up those in Sth Am... I'll check them out, they may just be typos.  eg Long West instead of East.

Fixed it !!

additional file sent to David.

THe problem was a comma in the WP name.  My software interpreted that as another field and corrupted the Lat/Long.
