Default Different Sets of Waypoints with Garmin?

I have a Garmin 740s, and a chip with all of my Hot-Spots saved on it as well as another chip with all of a friend’s waypoints on it. We both have a lot of saved points, and if I load them both, I get EVERYONE’S waypoints and it clutters up the screen a lot. Is there a way to designate who’s whose (so to speak) and then being able to toggle mine or his without going into MapSource or HomePort and changing all of the symbol characteristics (ie, Hide, Label, Symbol Only, etc) first?

I know I could take both of them out in the boat and just switch between them as needed, but it's a smaller boat and I would prefer to not chance getting water on anything if I can help it.

You'll need HomePort or MapSource to do it, but you can put your data into folders on the SD card. i.e. "My Data", "His Data", etc. Then you can load whatever data set you want to from the SD card.

Ah-Ha! Thanks, Ron. Sometimes the easy solutions are the toughest ones to come up with.
