Seems like it is a file system thats set to the lowrance gear i dont know what programs would be able to read that file system.
Of course I talk to my self while fishing.. sometimes I need expert advice!

On land line is a inanimate object. Under water it has a life of its own.

You can convert the .usr files to just about anything using GPSBable or save your waypoint files in the GPX format, then you can view in free Easy GPS software easygps.com.
Another option is to buy the Lowrance (Navico) viewer called Insight Planner for $40

Stick the card in your computer, in any GPS program select 'open file' (may be 'import' in some programs.)
In EasyGPS I think you have to export the data as a GPX file but I've never used it.
