Default best gps spots for Lowrance Elite 7 HDI

Just finish updating my Elite 7 to the most updated software that Lowrance has 4.0. Now I am trying to upload Hot Spots Fishing Chip (upper keys) on to the Elite 7 and I am having a hard time.
I checked videos online but nothing specific to the Elite 7.
I have also gone to waypoints, trails, and routes and tried to upload file and I get a message that SD card must be less than 32GB, which the Fishing Chip clearly is.
Is their another way to install if so please help, I have a fishing trip in 2 days. Thank you.

What format is the card you bought? For instance if your chip was originally for a Humminbird it would need to be converted to work in a Lowrance product.

It's for Lowrance. Unless the vendor made a mistake which I don't believe it is. I plan on calling tomorrow to see why I am having a problem.

Hugo, we will be getting back to you on Monday about the Lowrance chip. Most all of the chips we ship are under 1gb in capacity.

In the mean time, please check your owners manual for the specific instructions on how to transfer the waypoints From the chip To the unit.

thanks

Thank you best GPS spots for getting back to me so quickly. Problem was I had to transfer data on to another micro SD card. After that the fishing spots came up on my Lowrance Elite and I had a decent day fishing.

The latest update Lowrance lists for the E7 HDI is ver. 3.0...released Jan 2014. Is the OP in error as listing it as 4.0 or am I missing something?
