Trying to figure this out. I have done the PQ's and downloaded into GSAK and seem to have the correct format for my Lowerance iFinder which is usr files. I put these on the SD card, but they don't show up when I turn the GPSr on. I tried reading the manual and looking through all the menus. I can get to the MMC files but not past that. I have BC/Alberta map on there and then the 2 other usr files which were the pocket queries but how to get the info out?? Hopefully someone will have some suggestions. If all else fails, info is on my PDA but thats a little time consuming to be looking at several gadgets at a time! Help!

Ok I think I have managed to figure it out somehow. One problem still remains though. It shows only the GC number on the map on the GPSr it does not show the actual cache name so that makes things a little difficult.
To correct that would there be some setting on my GPSr that is not right or was it something that I need to change in GSAK? I don't think its GSAK because all the info uploaded okay to my palm. Any ideas? The manuals are't really that user friendly.

When exporting from GSAK where its says 'Waypoint Name' change the value to %smart
That will compress the name of the cache into something recognizable.
