Why did you drag the topic to child support ffs. Turn the computer(or your phone) off and p1ss off fishing, you're in a mood.


yep as a single farther i brought up my two sons without any support from their egg donor

and i say donor because it ain't a mothers bra strap .

this hole child support thing is a huge scam have you seen how much they get of missing link for a couple of kids

wooly,
just curious why you are inputing them on a computer, wouldnt it be easier to just load a few onto the unit itself, afterall the guys with the units should be doing this i would have imagined.
also these way points, are they the same as the so called GPS MARKS that people talk about.
or do you actually have a planned route to each spots from a certain ramp etc.

Using the PC makes sense. I own 2 boats and have 3 different GPS units....
Saving about 4000 marks all up.....
Then, update PC once, convert then upload to 3 GPS units is faster than individually punching buttons on the units.
Also, if a gps fails and I buy a new one, I can quickly drop all my marks onto it- imagine punching hundreds of marks in manually! Take forever ......

with the vast amount of water, serious question here, how many of you go back to the same spot on a gps mark each time you go out? i try diffeant spot each time as its about exploring diffent spots( thats my excuse for not catching..lol)

I do both, I'll frequently go back to the same couple of places I know work but if someone else is going somewhere I've never been before I might tag along because trying a new spot is a lot easier when you have someone with you who knows the area.
