Default reef download for chartplotter

I recently purchased a garmin 441s chartplotter/sounder. Unlike an older handheld I had, the public artificial reefs in the Alabama-Florida area were not pre-loaded.

I noticed that the coordinates are available for download but I don't know how to get them on the Garmin. Here's the link: http://www.outdooralabama.com/Fishin...ublicReefs.csv

Has anyone done this before? Thanks!

You can try GPS Babble. It should be able to convert the file to the Garmin format.

You may have to use the "save as" option to save the Alabama file as a tab delimited text file rather than the default comma deliminted file.
