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!

    • My buddy found this today! Great day to be out! future booner!
    • He only got one? Had 3 more in my pocket!!; I didn't want them in cold spring!
    •   http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/320316-trump-clarifies-remarks-on-nonexistent-sweden-incident-i-got-it   Nah, he just got it from Fox News. Where else would he be able to get accurate information about what is happening in the world?  
    • I have those on my 2 place trailer. Also have a set of plastic ski skins to go under skis but havnt tried them yet.
    • Hard not to look in the mirror and admit our meddling all over the world over the past 60 years has brought us nothing but trouble. You can shift blame to some radical religion if you want, plenty of blame there too but why force ourselves to step on that hornets nest in the first place when we didn't have to. But hey we are masters of destabilizing and regime changes and I don't think that is an accident. You can blame some religion if you want but I doubt Christians or you or I would be any different had some other country toppled our government and took over our country. Of course it is always in the name of peace and freedom, or at least that is what plays on the news.
    • https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/19/us/politics/donald-trump-ukraine-russia.html   To summarize for those too lazy to read the article:   A Putin-backed Ukranian lawmaker, a convicted mobster that's friends with Donald Trump, and his Russian-linked personal lawyer (who's being investigated for, guess what, his links to Russia) came to Michael Flynn (fired for lying about his contacts with Russia) with a plan that would essentially gift (the illegally annexed sovereign Ukrainian territory of) Crimea to Russia, and lift all related sanctions.
    • Spent about 4hrs there today with my family and had a great time. My twin 6yr olds had a blast and came home with lots of freebies.   im not a wine and dine hunting lodge guy so many booths didn't appeal to me. But lots of good dog stuff and conservation talk.   i pet and scratched more dogs behind the  ear today than I have in my entire life. Looking forward to Sioux Falls hosting it next year.
    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all.
