Importing Fishing Spots Into Simrad


Importing our fishing maps into your Simrad GPS unit is easy. For some units, you can simply plugin your device or SD card and use the GPX, KML, or USR file to import into your unit.  Please follow these instructions for importing into your unit:

1. Using the fishing maps downloads, if you unzip the file you downloaded, you should see a GPX file. Copy the GPX file and paste onto the root of the memory card.

2. Insert the memory card into your plotter.

3. Turn on the plotter.

3. Click the "Page" button to go to the screen selection options. Under/After "Waypoints, Routes, and Trails" select "Files"

4. On the Files screen select the memory card that has your file(s). Click "enter" and you will see a list of the .gpx files that you put onto the memory card.


For GO/EVO models:

1.     Push the Tools/Pages Button.

2.     Scroll down on the vertical menu on the left till you see Files or Storage and click it.

There have been reports that a software update on EVO and GO models may limit USR files to 6,000 spots/waypoints. However, the GPX files can still be used with 10,000 spots or less. We recommend to keep it under 6,000 waypoints regardless.

We have over 1,200,000 fishing spots in our database. You can only see half of the fishing spots on our Fishing Spots Map. Our hotspots are based on known fishing spots (buoys, reefs, wrecks, ledges, myths, lies, and hearsay from retired captains.
