Navionics or Lakemaster Chip???

2 posts in this topic

Sorry if this topic has been beaten to death, but I searched for it and didn't find anything that really compared the two brands, so...

I plan on getting an h2o c GPS after my other one was stolen. I would just like to get some opinions on which chips performs faster, have more lakes, better detailing, etc. I primarily fish south central minnesota lakes, but wouldn't mind a chip that is going to cover the whole state for when I take vacations and fishing trips. Just want to get some opionions or suggestions either way. Also should I get the latest edition or would a slightly older version (with the lakes I want on it already) work just as well?

The most important thing is getting all (or as many as possible) or the lakes you fish. Having a map card does you no good if the lakes you want are not on it.

So, as long as the lakes you might ever want are on an older map card there's no reason not to get it.

About your other questions, it's all a trade-off ---- LM is faster but doesn't have as many lakes, LM has other info like roads and POI but Nav has more lakes, I usually prefer LM maps over Nav maps but not always because in some cases Nav has better maps, I usually prefer the color scheme of Nav maps over LM maps.

Again, the most important thing to consider is getting the most high definition maps for the lakes you fish.

    • Hilly says yes, yes, yes...and yes, and yes... It was putin with hair.    
    • "Build a wall".. Good idea ? Bad idea ? That's debatable.   Want to stump a liberal ? Ask them what is hillary's plan to control illegal immigration ?
    • Who knocked her out? That certainly isn't Trump. Is that Putin with more hair?
    • View from the ground blind.  Straight ahead there is a secondary trail moving left to right that goes around some wet lowland and that intersects with a larger main trail that was out the window to my right that skirts the lowland on the north side.  I have the blind set up so that the secondary trail is 20 yards away and the main trail is 17 yards away.   Had a doe walk down the secondary trail the first day I hunted this spot but had the blind set up in a different location and I didn't see the doe until it was 10 feet from my blind and by that time its mighty hard to draw a bow without spooking a deer thats close enough to know what I had for breakfast. 
    • Same with when Trump says is going to build a wall, just fodder for the LIVs.    
    • Gary Johnson comments on the debate while appearing on Jimmy Kimmel show:   “It’s crazy the notion of deporting 11 million undocumented workers — in New Mexico, how’s that going to work where half the population is Hispanic?” said Mr. Johnson, The Hill reported. But “the biggest hoo-hah of the evening,” he continued, “the biggest whopper was when Hillary said, ‘Hey, I’m not going to add a penny to the deficit.’ Come on.” “Maybe she meant that literally,” Mr. Kimmel joked. “She’s not going to add a penny to the deficit.” Mr. Johnson laughed, adding, “$30 trillion, maybe, but not a penny.”
    • So when she says something like "no new taxes on anyone making less than $250K per year", it really doesn't mean a thing, it's just fodder for LIVs...
    • dang boober that looks good. a little katchup and horseradish..........Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!!!!!!!!!
