Hi, maybe you can help me guys. I want to save (map information) data from the LMS-334c iGPS to a Kingston-brand 4-GB memory card. I can't find how. I'm waiting for your help. Care, João Gonçalves

4G would be an SDHC card. The manual for your GPS says it
supports SD cards. SD cards and SDHC cards are physically
very similar, but use different addressing. SD cards are
addressed by byte, SDHC by sector.

If you want to save information from the Lowrance chart plotter to a memory card, you will be limited to the features available in the Lowrance operating system. Consult your owner's manual to learn what data can be written to a memory card from the Lowrance operating system. If you do not have an operating manual you can get a copy from Lowrance's website.

Generally you cannot export map data from the chart plotter. Typically you can save waypoint data, collections of waypoints as routes, or screen captures. I would be surprised to find out you could export the chart cartography to a memory card. Again, since you are using the chart plotter to write to memory card, your options will be limited to what is available in the chart plotter operating system.
