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!

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
