Navionics Chip Not Showing Lake Detaiils ... HELP!

5 posts in this topic

Need some help asap. I'm not seeing any lake detail using my Navionics Premium North 2008 chip for the first time in my Lowrance Expedition C (similar to an H2OC). This is the first time using this chip. I assumed all you did was pop it in and it just works, that is all I did with my lakemaster chip.

Can anyone help me understand what I am doing wrong?? Need to resolve asap, cause I plan to using it starting Thursday 9/3.

Also, is it safe to assume all the waypoint I saved using my Lakemaster chip will not be lost once I start using my Navionics chip?

Thanks!

You will have to go into setup and choose that chip. A problem that I have with my H2O is that it will barely make contact so I have to put a folded up piece of paper on top of it before I put in my batteries.

Jim nailed it on the head...If memory serves me, you have to go under the "Map Data" option and change the chip and choose the area of Minnesota you are fishing in.

Thanks for the quick help guys ... I think I kinda got it figured out. Boy is that a pain in the keyster having to explicitly select the area of each state you want to look at - don't understand why you would design it to do that. On top of that, after initially looking at a lake detail, it seems to be noticably slower at refreshing as you zoom in compared to my Lakemaster chip.

I'll continue to play with it. Thanks again!

    • Well this warm winter should help out this coming year pretty well.
    • Well, today was both awesome and extremely disappointing. We hadn't been hunting my pintail, wigeon and mottled duck spot because I had heard it got beat up pretty bad over the weekend and I wanted to let it rest for a few days & build some birds back up. Got all set up & had enough pintails work to make it interesting, but the wigeon were pretty much a no-show. The majority of the pins (a couple thousand!) landed to the west about 1/2 mile away in an area I've never seen birds work. Buddy shot one, and we had a flock of 8 buzz us while we were picking dekes (as they always do). On the plus side, we were only 1 bird short of our pintail limit (2 hens didn't make the pic) and 2 of them shot their first pintail. One guy that has been hunting for 25 years shot 2 gorgeous pins that are wall bound, the other guy that shot his firsts got a drake and a hen. All had sprigs but some were pulled before the pic to save for mounting as we didn't want them to get broken during transport. Also not pictured are 2 drake shovelers and a drake and hen red. All in all a slow day but my buds were ecstatic. Tomorrow, we head to a lake that I've never hunted but has had a lot of cinnamon teal (as well as bwt, gwt, wigeon, gads, fulvous and whistling ducks, pins and mallards) shot out of it this year. Wish us luck!!
