I have a Lowrance Ifinder H2oC. I am trying to download groups of waypoints from geocaching.com and put them on my MMC. When I do, they download as a .loc file. I cannot find a way to download those from my MMC to my GPS. I can only make .gpx files work. Any one else run into this and/or a solution? I'm trying to download a group rather than one at a time; which takes forever. Thanks!

I have a Lowrance XOG, I tried to download the files in as gpx's and loc's and didn't have much luck keeping them the way they were supposed to be. What I found useful is to download the geocaching converter file on the Lowrance site and use that to change the gpx/loc to .usr (Lowrances file). Clunky, but it works.
