Make sure you are using the latest version of winzip, or 7zip, or winrar..

The standard "shipping" decompress module in windows can cause issues.

Same file format thing happened last time. Wish there was a workaround. Not sure if it's the zipping, or the original file format. Bummer.

It's not the zip compression (I zip dozens of files per weeks for archival). More than likely people are using the compressed file and folder wizard that ships with XP, Vista, Win& etc (which is quite dated). Which is Microsoft's implantation. Installing Winzip's product or the free 7zip program solves it every time. I've downloaded it to several computers and laptops and tested thoroughly (and just downloaded it again on a fresh laptop, and uncompressed with winzip and 7zip).

There are many work arounds, none of them as simple as using to right software to open the right program and extracting the data.

The lowance format is included in the second zip file. There's a free program called gpsbable that works wonders on conversions ..

The Alabama public numbers were posted in this section last year. They should show up in the thread I posted (over 18 pages). There hasn't been any updates. It's located early on in the same post that you asked questions in last month https://www.pensacolafishingforum.com...-44188/index9/

thanks

maybe one day I'll get my head wrapped around this

If I send the file with the Lowrance file (usr) to my sd card ?
is it ready to upload ?

or do I have to convert it

I use a PC all day, but don't manage files..........I guess I'm a GPS invalid


I gave up on asking on the other thread, because I just didn't get it

I downloaded the A file and extracted the Garmin .gdb file just fine with WinZip. Mapsource opened the file with no problem. Thanks!!!!!
