Default Public reef data - how to upload to plotter?

I would like to find out how to upload public reef data into garmin 8212'without having to manually input all of the data. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

User manual for the 8000 series. http://static.garmincdn.com/pumac/GPSMAP_8000_OM_EN.pdf

Page 40, shows several ways to manage waypoints.

Thx. My manual is in MS with the boat, but I will look for an on-line version.

The online link was in my first reply; did it not work?

Does anyone else see the irony in the screen names on this thread?

I have all of the manuals for each piece of equipment on the boat downloaded on my iPad, did not think about it until I saw your response. Thx for your input, much appreciated. Unfortunately, it looks like entering the data manually to Homeport or to the unit itself is the only option.

I think if you look at the section/paragraph for restoring data via a card: it eludes to the device using .gpx files. So..a process might include finding or creating (using gpsutils or gpsbabel or one of the files posted here)and placing that gpx file on a memory card, inserting into unit, and "restoring" that data. It's worth a bit of research rather than typing in all that data.

I uploaded 1500 sites to my SD card VIA Homeport.
I have a 4212 but I dont see why a 8000 series would be different
