Re: How to transfer waypoints to SD Card, but keep on unit

When you save your waypoints to a SD card, you do not lose them from the HDS unit. You are merely copying them to the card.

Make sure you use a 32 gb or less card. I also recommend saving them on your home computer or laptop for the future in case you ever sell or break your HDS unit.

Re: Ca delta bubba shot?

Best weight for Bubba Shotting is a QuickDrop, and besides all the small sizes they come in 1/2 oz, 3/4 oz, and even 1 oz. The teardrop shape punches a hole in the mats so the worm follows without fowling, and the shape allows the weights to come back out of the mat easily without grabbing weeds.
