UPDATED GARMIN INSTRUCTION HERE: http://fishingstatus.com/places/maps/instructions/garmin
We now include a native Garmin file with the extension .gdb in the downloads. Add this file to your SD card and you can import directly to your unit.
Some units came with the Garmin Software called Homeport. This is the easiest option to use. Simply go to File > Import > and select the GPX file.
If you do not have Homeport, download and install the Garmin Communicator Plugin. The Garmin Communicator Plugin allows Garmin devices to receive various types of GPS data from websites. To download this plugin, see the resources section.
Click on the blue "Download for Windows" button, select the "Save File" button, and then choose a location on your computer to download the file. If you are a Mac user, select the "Download-Mac" link located in the top right-hand corner under the Quick links sections.
Install the Garmin Communicator Plugin by double-clicking on the downloaded file, and then following the prompts. Be sure to have your Garmin device and Garmin USB/serial cable ready as you will be prompted to connect your device to your computer during the installation process.
Open your GPX file in notepad by right clicking on the GPX file, selecting "Open With", clicking on "Choose default program", and then selecting Notepad. The GPX file is opened in Notepad.
Copy of the content of the GPX file in Notepad, and then paste the content in GPX File Uploader. To go to GPX File Uploader, see the resources section.
Add the GPX file content to your Garmin device by clicking on the "Upload GPX to your Garmin" button in GPX File Uploader. The Garmin Communicator Plugin will add the GPX content to your Garmin device. Be sure that your Garmin device is connected to your computer before clicking on the "Upload GPX to your Garmin" button.
