GPSmap 78sc importing and exporting

Just purchased a gpsmap 78sc and was wondering if you are able to import or export routers? I use INAVX a a plotter and have all of my routes on it. Would like to use them and just transfer to the handheld. I am generally using the handheld as a backup along with paper maps as a third backup.

Re: GPSmap 78sc importing and exporting

You could try Homeport:

https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/maps...prod64242.html

It lets you import/export routes, tracks, waypoints to/from your GPS and work with them on a PC.

It can also import ADM, GPX, KML,KMZ,TCX files so if you can export in one of those formats from the INAVX, you should be able to do it.

Thanks, in the US now without my computer, only ipad. Once I get back home I will try to transfer the information to the handheld.
