Default lowrance carbon 9

I've got a carbon 9 and am having problem with it.
When I go to put my history on a micro SD card then delete and purge I check my history and come up all 0 in the unit. "Waypoints routes and trails" Then when I go to mark a new waypoint I get message that my memory is full??? Is there a step that I've forgetting? Any help would be great.
thanks
mark

I had a similar problem when I was mistakenly writing data to the map card. Check your settings to insure that you are writing to the correct card slot.

It is quite possible that at some point you may have purposely or inadvertently turned "Log Sonar" on, which will fill the limited memory cache rather quickly and unless that Sonar Log is saved to another source, it is retained in memory. Go to Pages>Storage>My Files>Logs. When you select Logs (a folder) it will open up and you'll see several sub folders listed. If there is a gray box with an arrow to the left of any of those folders it's an indicator that there are files contained there. If you touch and open one of the folders, a list of files will be displayed, and you can either copy those files to an SD card, or simply delete them as none of them are needed or required for your unit to operate. After they have been copied and deleted, or simply deleted, exit out of Storage, power the unit down and restart the unit and your memory full issue should be resolved. Lemme know if that doesn't work for you.

If I'm not mistaken, there's another step where you actually"purge", not sure if that's the terminology, the files from the unit. Just noticed that step the other day while playing with my Ti 9. If I get a chance today, I'll try and find what menu.

Hawker
Just got done doing what you suggested and I was excited to have solved the problem🤔 but was dashed. After restarting unit I tried to mark WP and got same message memory full check this and that. I'm not very computer savvy just enough to get me in trouble...
Any other ideas??
Thanks for your help.

Did you delete all the files in all the folders?

Would be helpful to know what software version you are running on your Carbon if you'll check. (Pages>Settings>About (scroll down to bottom of screen on right). Version and Application numbers would be helpful. I'd also recommend doing a Restore Defaults, but before you do that, save your settings as I described earlier first. (Pages>Settings>Restore defaults on right side of screen). Another question, when you go to Pages>Storage, at the top of the screen from left to right are Waypoints, Sonar Logs and Transfers. When you select Waypoints, are there a number of waypoints shown, deleted waypoints, Routes, Deleted Routes? If you have anything showing up under deleted waypoints or routes, select Purge and bottom right corner. This will purge them from memory and free up space too.

If none of this helps, you may need to do a hard reset, in which case you'll want to export all your waypoints, routes and trails to a SD card first, and again, save your settings as I described earlier. After saving your settings and doing the hard reset, turn the unit back on and insert the SD card with your saved settings, go thru the brief setup process, then press Pages>Storage and select the memory card. Select the saved settings file, then select Import and your unit will import those saved settings and re-boot itself. Hopefully after all that your memory issue will be resolved. But, let me know what version and application your running if you will please! Good luck!!

Think I solved my problem "hard restart" did the trick.
Thanks to everyone that helped...
