MMC Chip for Lowrance X-15

12 posts in this topic

I got for Christmas the Navionics Hotmaps MMC Chip with 1' ReelBottoms Contours for White Bear, Mille Lacs, Leech, and Gull. Product (HM269XL) Is this the most accurate Chip. I have been reading about Lakemaster and various others and was hearing about inaccurracy issues.

Has anyone used this and are they accurate?

I used the reelbottem chip for the first time last year on Gull lake for a walleye tournament and it is very accurate finding inside turns and points on structure was really easy.
But did find some structure that was not on the chip. But all in all still well worth the money

You have the most accurate chip. I've used it for a couple of years now it is great. Gull and Mille Lacs are awesome. I've talked to other huys that have the hot spots chip and they are not as good.

Thanks guys!! I talked with a guy from Lakemaster Maps at the Sportsman's show tonight and he stated the same thing. It's good to hear he wasn't just feeding me a line.

I have used mine on Mille Lacs and Leech. I found it dead on and well worth the money. I also use it with an x-15. smile.gif

I have the MMC for my X-15 from Navionics.

Some lakes it's on, others , like the St. Croix it is 200 Yards off !!!

When I'm fishing Big Winnie, on Big Muskie Bar, the actual dropoff is about ** 10% ** of the distance it says on the map !!

Not that happy with it...

Hopefully the MMC cards for the I-Finder will be available soon,none of the Maps available will work with this unit. I have heard that the Navtronics maps are real good tho..

I heard the only Accurate Map/Chips are the ones produced by Navionics that contain data originally surveyed by Reelbottom or Lakemaster. Hotmaps just uses DNR Surveys and they tend to be less accurate.

danny (or anyone else),
Is lakemaster actually developing a chip for the ifinder? I ask because I'm in the process of deciding on a handheld GPS and if they are developing a compatible chip that would seal my decision. The way I understand it is that the ifinder will only run a 128MB chip (the new ifinder pro runs 512MB) and the current lakemaster chips are larger than that. If they make the smaller MB chip, will all the lakes available on the current generation of MMC chips be available on the new chip or will they have to eliminate some lakes to reduce the MB? I'm still rather low on the GPS learning curve so any help would be appreciated. Maybe I should e-mail Lowrance and/or Lakemaster.

Spike,
I only have the I-Finder, not the pro.

Only the ifinder PRO will work with the navionics chip. I spoke with the nice people at Cabelas and he verified this with the guy at the sports show. I saw Reeds have a Pro there with the chip in it and it worked great. Supply is a little short right now on them, but they expect them in the next couple of weeks. Wait for the Pro model. The other option is if you already have the reelbottom map on CD, you can get the software from Lakemaster at the show for $15 that you can download the waypoints into your chip. They can better explain it.
Good luck and tight lines.

    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.
