Default EasyGps Software and Simrad NSSEvo2

I want to use a software on my computer to manage my waypoints and be able to enter them into the computer software and then transfer them to my GPS (much easier then trying to enter them individually into the GPS as I have over 200 waypoints). I am not interested in mapping or anything else, just transferring the waypoints. I used EasyGPS software and have 3 Simrad NSS Evo2 units networked together. The default Datum for the Simrad is WGS84 and I set the same Datum on the EasyGPS software. I entered the waypoints, downloaded them to a micro sd card, uploaded them to the GPS and all the waypoint numbers on the GPS are incorrect. I've checked the numbers on the SD card and they are correct. Then as a test I entered individual numbers into the GPS, downloaded them to the SD card then entered them into EasyGPS and they are also become incorrect. Easy GPs uses .gpx files. The numbers I entered directly into the GPS become .usr files. I've called Simrad technical support but they have no answer since EasyGPS is not theirs. Does anyone have an answer, I'd appreciate it.

Set the unit to read and show Decimal Degrees. XX.xxxxxx
Set the Software to Decimal Degrees.
Then make sure all your data you want to transfer is in that format and do it again. You are likely getting incorrect readings due to confusion on the other formats and do not have consistency.

An iPad works well usuing Navionics. The iPad puts them in the cloud and if you have GoFree WiFi-1 you can synchronize the iPad to your evo2 and back, works great.
