Events are specific to the Lowrance and Eagle models of GPS.

If you are having trouble finding them described in your Lowrance or Eagle GPS manual they are referred to as Icons. On the box they may be referred to as Events or Event markers.

Events are used to mark fishing or hunting locations, landmarks, boat ramps, and virtually any point of interest.

In the GPS an event has only a position and a symbol (the symbol may also be called an Icon).

If you have a compatible model of Lowrance or Eagle GPS events can be uploaded/downloaded to or from the GPS.

If you are using OziExplorer with some other brand of GPS Events can still be used to indicate positions on the map in the various symbols but of course they cannot be uploaded to your GPS.
