waypoints, maps, laptop

I would like to import / export waypoints then edit them on my laptop
It would be better if there was some type of mapping to use with my waypoints on my laptop
I do have navionics plus on my ff, but a 15 inch screen is tons better then my 7 inch ff
What do you guys use

Re: NN 7.10

yeah, its the softbaits I haven't truly sussed out yet, altho I got proper dedicated gear for it... who would of thought a 2.5m rod for softbaiting would be ok on a kayak & yet I was assured this was the way to go, only time will tell probably easier to watch someone at it doing softbaiting, then ta...
