How to Edit A Waypoint on Your Garmin Chartplotter

Share this Post:

Adding a waypoint to your fishfinder/map is pretty straight forward right? You simply push a button, and a symbol instantly appears on your chart. This, of course, is done on the boat, on the water, and normally when some kind of event happens i.e. seeing fish on the screen, seeing cover or structure on the screen, or catching a fish. That waypoint is yours forever (as long as you backup your data of course). But what if someone were to send you GPS coordinates through a text or an email. Your job is to get them into your chart plotter.

In this how-to piece, Fish’n Canada’s Pete Bowman gives you the method that he and Ang use, in order to add in a waypoint via “editing” it. It’s a simple procedure that you need to know.

Pete, one of the most revered and popular anglers in the nation, has a tremendous love for the game… the fishing game. Pete’s vast knowledge of angling and ability to articulate it to audiences worldwide has endeared him to his fans who still see Pete as just “ONE OF THE BOYS”. Pete is also an accomplished and published outdoor writer and photographer as well as a sought-after speaker. In 2012 another of Pete’s ultimate fishing career highlights occurred when he was inducted into the Canadian Angler Hall Of Fame, something he never thought would happen. A Canadian fishing icon.
