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.

    • New ABC / WaPo Poll Shows Drop In Trump Favorability Courtesy Of Aggressive "Oversamples" Jan 17, 2017 3:42 PM   In the month leading up to the election on November 8th, we repeatedly demonstrated how the mainstream media polls from the likes of ABC/Washington Post, CNN and Reuters repeatedly manipulated their poll samples to engineer their desired results, namely a large Hillary Clinton lead (see "New Podesta Email Exposes Playbook For Rigging Polls Through 'Oversamples'" and "ABC/Wapo Effectively Admit To Poll Tampering As Hillary's "Lead" Shrinks To 2-Points").  In fact, just 16 days prior to the election an ABC/Wapo poll showed a 12-point lead for Hillary, a result that obviously turned out to be embarrassingly wrong for the pollsters. But, proving they still got it, ABC/Washington Post and CNN are out with a pair of polls on Trump's favorability this morning that sport some of the most egregious "oversamples" we've seen.  The ABC/Wapo poll showed an 8-point sampling margin for Democrats with only 23% of the results taken from Republicans...   ...while the CNN poll showed a similar 8-point advantage for Democrats with only 24% of respondents identifying as Republicans.
