from the GPS to the PC) of waypoints, tracklogs, routes, events
(Lowrance/Eagle units only), and for those units which support it,
downloading a copy of the current display as a Windows

the GPS) all of the above except for the display, display bitmaps
cannot be sent to the GPS. Waypoints, routes, events, and tracklogs
