Lowrance to Garmin Waypoint Conversion

Has anyone converted Lowrance (.usr) waypoints to Garmin (.adm)? I want to convert my waypoints to my new Garmin 740S and figured that someone here has already done it.

Thanks

My Lowrance has two options for exporting (usr or gpx). Garmin should accept the GPX format, but I'm not 100% sure.

The problem is that the Lowrance died after a few months and they won't support it (end of life they said). So, I upgraded to a Garmin 740S and just want to convert the waypoints to .adm but can't find a utility to do that. It's not a problem reading the .usr data, it's a conversion to .adm problem.

BTW, I fixed the Lowrance with a .02 fuse but since it was full of water I'm not going to use it any longer.

This should do what you need .... Free and works pretty well.

Tried that one too. It won't even open the Lowrance .usr files. It only recognizes three different file types and none of them include the .usr or .adm files.

Try to export them to text format (or if you can cut and paste from the opened .usr into text) then import to the format you want..

Thanks for all the advice. Turns out to be a multi-step process and I needed two different programs to do it. Anyway, I'll find out tomorrow if it worked.
