Customer Question
HDS 7” gen 2...

HDS 7” gen 2 At dash. I have lost waypoints on map Lowrance Lake Map. If I go to page with waypoints Routed Trails I have all my waypoints. Is there a way to get them back on map. I have spent hours on lake accumulating waypoints.

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Electronics Specialist I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else important you think the Marine Electronics Specialist should know?

That’s it.

go into the menu, then to settings. Scroll down to Chart. Press enter. Scroll down on this page until you see Waypoint and trails. Make sure that there is a check mark on them. This will turn them back on when it is checked.

Also make sure that the chart source is set to Lowrance.
