Backup Waypoints on Humminbird Fishfinders

Most of us have experienced the pain of digital data loss, be it phone contacts, pictures, or important computer data. Now think of years of accrued fishing knowledge in the form of waypoints getting erased or transferred to someone else accidentally through a boat sale. Modern fishing electronics are sophisticated, and the data they hold valuable to finding and catching fish. Johnson Outdoors Brand Manager for Fishing - Jeff Kolodzinski, shows us how to quickly and effortlessly backup our waypoints to a portable SD card. From there, this data can be transferred to a computer for safeguard or simply left on the SD card as a backup. This is important redundancy in the event data is lost on the unit itself, or an equipment ownership change and you want to erase the internal data while keeping fishing hotspots for transfer to your new unit.
