I am new to Garmin and Mapsource and was wondering if MapCreate 6.3 data and data from a ifinder h2o can be converted to mapsource and used on a Garmin unit.
Thanks for any info on the subject.

If you mean by data, waypoints, tracks or routes, if you can export them as a .gpx file you will be all right. If you mean maps, then You are going to out of luck. First off, it's going to violate any EULA that came with MapCreate, making it a taboo subject on these here boards, which are focused on user created maps.

Thanks for the info. I was only interested in route and waypoint data. The maps themselves are to safely stay on original program. The software uses .usr format.
Thanks

Use GPSBABEL to convert Lowrance USR to .gpx:
