    help Garmin Striker and waypoint data

    So the new garmin striker came out this year.
    I think it's pretty good for kayaks and I guess small boats due to the fact it has no mapping charts but you can still
    put waypoints in. Though the main issue I see is that you can't share data from say a garmin gpsmap or a older model echomap
    with all your waypoints to the strikers as they don't have a microsd slot and the only way you can share is via a user data cable but only
    between the newer models of the echomaps and strikers.

    So I was thinking I wanted one of the Garmin Striker 7sv's but problem I have is I got over 300 waypoints on my Garmin Gpsmap 557xs and
    I won't be able to just quickly drop them over I would have to manual put each number.. I heard someone did it and took it 2 weeks to do it.

    So I have a little Geek/Hack question for all you tweakers would it be possible to access the garmin chip that stores the waypoint data and some
    how drop waypoints over. Or is there some way to tweak it to connect to a pc in some way so i could just use homeport to send the data across.

    I worked in IT Security and done allot of coding but never done much stuff to do with hardware so it would be great if anyone could figure a way
    to transfer data from a microsd card or a garmin unit that isn't a echomap new model to the striker units.

    I think it is enough to use Mapsource or Homeport. These Garmin programs can read data from SD card if you exported it on card and after send data to device via a user data cable. Any problem?
