  1. I bought the Endura Out&Back at may/2010 on EUA, Texas. I tried to buy a map for the region that I was, but the mapcreat.com doesn’t allow and not comunicated with the GPS.
    The Endura GPS worked very fine on EUA.
    Now I back to Sao Paulo, Brazil and the GPS don’t have a map for my country. I contacted the Lowrance Brazilian dealer for this kind of unity, and he said that I can try buying another microSD card, with south america map that he think will work, paying amost more U$450. But what I want is one software that I can use with my computer and send to GPS the local map, converted to Lowrance format.
    The Lowrance site doesn’t show any information for Endura, the mapcreat or GDM is not for this model. The Site MapSelect can not stabish conection with Endura Series and there are not one simple map for Sao Paulo.
    What I need to do for send map to my GPS?
    here there are a lot of engineering maps using ETrend, that I want to convert and send to my unit to use them.

    The Endura (Bios 1.2 patch 1.3) is a very good GPS, easy to use, with a lot of features. The color display is very nice, but sometimes is very dificult to read a name of the street.

    Thank you.
