I have an Apple laptop and I am looking for a way to get my Fishing edge to my Lowrance GPS. As far as I can tell Insight planner only works with windows based computer. Do you know of a program that will allow me to get my waypoints to my GPS
Thanks,

Insight for APPLE

Mike, I am sorry that the Planner will not work in an Apple computer. Check with Lowrance Support at 1-800-324-1356 and see if they will have a correction download.

Sometimes you can simply copy the USR file in the Edge program to a Lowrance memory card and place it in the GPS unit, but sometimes the newer Lowrance GPS units will not accept the data unless it comes from the Insight Planner.

Let me know what you find out from Lowrance.

You could always run a virtual Windows machine on the Mac using software such as VMWare.

Capt Paul,
I was told by Lowrance that they will be a new version of insight planner that will be Mac compatible next year. So hopefully that is right. I downloaded the Windows version and loaded it on my sons computer for now.
