Iowa DNR maintains a catalog of habitat structures installed in Iowa lakes, as well as other important features. This
data is available via downloadable GPX file. Right click and choose "save target as" or "save as", and save the file to your computer (not to your device's card). When saving, change from XML file type to All Files, and type in .gpx at the end of the FishingStructures file name. After saving to your computer, you should be able to add the data to your GPS.
The saved file "FishingStructures.gpx" should be universally useable on most GPS units.
