Magellan MapSend Topo Software

9 posts in this topic

Got the software from a buddy at work. I installed the complete software on my hard drive.

Should lakes, like Mille Lacs, have the contour lines (topography) showing? Even after zooming in, I don't see any. Any help out there? I see some elevation lines on land.

I am not 100% sure about this but I have been told that the Magellan mapsend topo software does not show lake depths or contours. It only shows the dry land contour info. If I am wrong please let me know as I just bought a new Magellan Meridain Marine GPS and am looking into which software to buy.

I have a magellan and use Delorme Topo 4.0 mapping software, which works fairly good. You can then buy 7.5 minute topoquads for whatever state you want. Topo 4.0 does not have lake depth contours and I don't know if the state topoquads do, but I seriously doubt it.

yup, already have that on the PC. You can keep track of points and descriptions with that at least.

    • I would say your results speak for themselves, we often do things that don't make sense or trade short term gain for long term trouble. Nature does things for a reason that we often don't understand, why try to fix what isn't broken?
    • Two charter boats. (11 people) Fishing was very slow last Sunday afternoon (8), but we did really well on Monday morning (43). Due to bad luck drawing cards, neither Mrs Duff or I touched a rod on Sunday. She went 5 for 5 on Monday. That's fishing for ya though. And true fishermen understand that.   Some real nice fish this year, good luck to those that make it out there.      
    • And no, it does not have some sort of virus. They are calling it a phishing site and it is not. It competes with Google adsense so it make sense for Google to be sloppy in their algorithm.
    • Great storytelling with pictures on a portion of your life experiences in the  great outdoors.  Thanks for sharing Len.  
    • Len - This was a very nice article.  I enjoyed your writing style.  Take care.
    • I am going to pick up a box to pattern against what I am shooting now. Here is my question. They are available in both 1 3/4 oz. shot and 1 7/8 oz. shot in 12 gauge. In a 3" 12 gauge #5 shot shell, that comes out to a 21 pellet difference. The velocity for 1 3/4 is 1200 fps, for 1 7/8 is 1080. At 20 yards it would make very little difference, but say at 45 yards would you rather have the extra 21 pellets or the added velocity? I suppose the answer is to buy both and pattern them, but I am curious as to the thoughts of the folks on this board. Thanks
    • I was looking to get an otter XT pro cabin this winter, I was wondering of anyone on here has an otter in the pro platform and how they like the extra insulated walls. Does it seem bulky? Too warm on above 0 days? I wouldn't mind just the normal cabin but they only offer it with a bench it seems but having the extra insulation may be nice to have for those cold days here and there. 
    • Thank You for the very interesting and enjoyable morning read
