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.

    • Branson is sort of in a transition, since they weren't going to survive catering to a population that's mostly dead now.   I've heard it's getting more interesting for people under the age of 75.     I grew up about 45 minutes from there.   We used to cruise through there on Friday nights and chat up bored out of their mind girls on vacation with grandma and grandpa.     The surrounding area is beautiful, once you get off the highway and away from the billion billboards.

    • Does anyone have any good ideas, memories, experiences with any hunting trips that they would like to share?  My dad is turning 60 in a year and a half and I would really like to plan a once in a life trip that I can buy him.  That being said, I can not spend 20 grand on a 2 man moose hunt in Alaska and that is being generous on the cost of that one, more like 30 plus.   Looking for a moose, caribou like trip.  He has shot a big muley in the past and an elk, so that may not be top on his list anymore.   Just looking for ideas.  Thanks much.

    • Have not been around here much but always enjoy the "Turkey Talk" Count me in. Hunting Minnesota and Wisconsin. Archery for both.  
    • I put my feeders out 1st of May usually. Such a neat bird. We usually only have a few so they are territorial here. Fun to watch one guard a feeder and then zip down when another one comes. Maybe they get along in bigger numbers?   Up north at daughters inlaws on a lake the neighbors have 4 feeders under a big pine and usually a bunch of hummers. Saw about 15 one time and they got along fine. Pretty neat. 
    •   So that's the evidence you have about illegal wiretaps that apparently nobody else has besides Trump?  That Obama's a bad (or sick) guy?   Try harder.   
    • Yup, everytime i call you or del out to put up the truth about your own bodies, you dodge. Wouldn't that be the ultimate proof that your way of addressing personal health and wellness is more effective in preventing and healing?  I think you guys have an idea from what you've been told and not what you bring yourself to learn and you never put anything to use so, who are you really to share your opinion? A couple of blowhards, thats who.
    • What crankbaits do you like for the 7-9ft range?   Looking for something that casts/have action like a DT-10, but doesn't run quite as deep. I have some SK series 4, but they have the wider wobble which sometimes I don't want. The SK series 3's just don't cast that far, especially in a wind. Same with some others, they always seem to be smaller in this range.   Thanks.
