Default Converting Humminbird waypoints to Garmin

Can anyone help with this? I am switching from Humminbird to the Garmin Echomap and want to convert my waypoints. I found a couple of old threads on this subject and also looked on Garmin's site for advice. From what I've seen, I need to use my Humminbird PC program to convert the waypoints to GPX file format and then upload them to a SD card, then pop the card in my Garmin to upload the waypoints. I've done this, but the Garmin does not recognize any waypoints on the card to upload. I can check the card on my computer and it shows the waypoints are on it. The SD card I used is a 32 size and was already used to update Garmin software, so I'm assuming the card is formatted properly. Any help? Thanks!

I remember having the same problem. I think the waypoints may be in a sub file. Not sure, but I may have had to open the file from documents, then open the sub file and then send it to the SD card.

No I have not tried that. I'll have to look into it.
