Don't want to buy the Lowrance LCX-15?

1 post in this topic

Many people seem to want the ability to see the lake features on their GPS. However, the price point to get into a new Lowrance LCX-15 plus the maps can be prohibitive. Plus there are only a few maps being developed because they are so costly to produce.

The tip I was going to share is if you want structure to show up on your GPS such as a hump but don't want to spend all the money, you can probably use your handheld GPS you have been using for years.

If you use a custom lake map available on FM

here is a good thing to try. Use the software that comes with the map and draw track lines around the structure you want to show up on the GPS. This would be really time consuming to do for a whole lake but to mark a few humps or bars with track feature is pretty easy. Then upload your track to your GPS (if tracks are supported) and you have some basic structure on your GPS whether your GPS supports maps or not.

Just a quick tip.
