Some maps have the capability to upload/download waypoints, routes, and tracks to SOME GPSRs. If , for instance, Delorme maps are listed as having this capability with Garmin or Magellan GPS receivers, this does NOT mean compatibility with ALL of that manufacturer's products. ASK specifically about YOUR GPS receiver BEFORE you buy. Lowrance does not offer TOPO maps for their consumer model GPSRs.
