    Default Helix/ Garmin 93sv uhd .

    I sold my old gen 1 helix on a boat last fall . I found a copy of the waypoints on a micro chip . Can I put these on my Garmin by putting the card in or must I download to something else ?

    HB waypoints are in Humminbird’s proprietary .hwr format ...

    gpsbabel is free waypoint conversion software ... to get the HB .hwr format into GPX format the Garmin can read ...

    Coach even when you convert and upload to a Garmin unit you will have to re-mark each one. I spent 2 years side-scanning and recording every river system here on the coast. Well I recently installed a Garmin1042xsv on the bow of my boat so I exported the waypoints on my Helix 10 in the universal format for upload to the Garmin. Not the first waypoint was spot on. I have over 1000 saved in my Helix 10, when I have the opportunity I use my trolling motor to get on top of the location and re-mark with the 1042xsv. I also had to install at Heading sensor from Garmin to get pinpoint marks or going slow the unit wouldn't know which way the boat was actually pointing.
