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.

    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
    • I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday that turned out great, but the rack it sat on took a lot of soaking and scrubbing to get clean afterwards. Got any tricks to keep the rack less crusty? Spray it with Pam before the smoke or??
    • I stopped at a small engine shop on my way up north Monday and he confirmed what RebelSS said. I got some yellow tubing and after struggling for almost 1/2 hour, got the lines reconnected and went out and whacked some weeds. Thanks for all the replies.
    • I read somewhere that the chemicals used by Queens NY pest control caused male pattern baldness and birth defects in pet hamsters. 
    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.
