5.6 Transferring Waypoints and Routes
Displayed SeaTalk Waypoints
In an integrated system, when a route is made current on any SeaTalk
equipment it is sent to all SeaTalk instruments, including this chartplotter; this
route will override any other current route. When
GOTO waypoint or GOTO
cursor is in operation it is considered a route.
The current route can be edited on any instrument with route edit capability.
Note: Transferred waypoints are not automatically saved by the chartplotter,
however you can save the route locally, thus adding the waypoints to the local
Managing Database Lists
There are several methods of maintaining database lists. The method you
choose will depend on the links available (SeaTalk, NMEA or
whether you want to transfer individual waypoints or the complete waypoint
and route list:
• You can save the complete Waypoint and Route Lists to a user cartridge in
the chart card slot.
• You can load new Waypoint and Route Lists from a user cartridge in the
chart card slot.
• If waypoints are transmitted by other equipment on SeaTalk or NMEA,
you can receive them on the chartplotter.
RECEIVE WPTS FROM ST/NMEA is selected, any waypoints sent on
SeaTalk or NMEA are transferred and appended, one-by-one, to the way-
point list; routes sent on NMEA are appended to the route list.
You can use this function to add waypoints from a PC connected via
• You can send the waypoint and route lists from the chartplotter to other
instruments via NMEA using the
SEND WPT LIST function.
Sending the waypoint list does not affect current routes.
The NMEA link could be to a PC.
• You can transfer the waypoint and route lists from one chartplotter to
another across an
link using SEND WPT LIST ON HSB and RECIEIVE WPTS
The functions LOAD USER CARD, SEND WPT LIST ON HSB and RECIEIVE WPTS
replace the existing waypoint and route lists with the
