Default Transferring numbers from old Garmin GPS to new Raymarine unit

Can someone point me in the right direction here?
I have an old Garmin 172C that I would like to transfer the 400 plus numbers from and put into my new Raymarine Dragonfly GPS/Fishfinder.

Anyone here in the Pensacola / Milton area do this? I know there may / will be a fee, am willing to pay for it.

The Garmin has a BlueChart "read only" data card and the Raymarine has the new Navionics "US Silver" SD/microSD card.

Thanks in advance for your help

Regards

Paxton, you are not allowing PM's right now. But i just did the same thing not too long ago. It's a bit of a process but i would be happy to help get you all set up. No fee. Just happy to help a PFF'er. Call me at 850-293-1438

Sounds very "doable". Store GPS coords fron Garmin to a BLANK sd card, import into pc using babel or mapsource, write to a BLANK microSD in FSH format, import into Raymarine unit..

The Garmin card is not the G2 version. It is obsolete as of 2011. One end of the card has a 20 pin connector that apparently fits onto a plug located inside of the machine. Hope this clarifies my situation.

Thx for the replies

That card should only be for your maps. Not your waypoints.

You would need a Garmin USB Data Card programmer, a blank data card, and Mapsource to do this since the Garmin 172C uses Garmin's proprietary data cards. Your research to date probably already has discovered this.

Try Jerry at Georges Marine Electronics, he has transferred #s for me in the past, He is reasonably priced.
