lakemaster maps for gps

10 posts in this topic

I have a Garmin map76s. I would like to get the Mille lacs 1' contour map on cd-rom to load onto my gps. Anybody have any experience with this? I went to their HSOforum and looked at the gps compatable list and the map76s is not on the list. Help please.

Thanks,Scotty

I have the GPS 76S and it works just fine with the LakeMaster Mille Lacs ProMaps.

I got a demo of this software at the sportshow this last weekend. If I'm not mistaken I was under the impresson that you cannot download the map to your gps, but rather get coordinates and mark locations or waypoints and download those to your gps. Just want to make sure I got this correct.

Rick, does the actual map load or just the waypoints and routes?

Thanks,Scotty

[Note from Rick: Sorry Scotty, I should have told you that you can get more info or purchase your Maps at:
http://minnesota-lake-maps.com .

Especially nice for Ice Fishing Season. You can save a lot of hole drilling to find structure or your spots.]]

just the waypoints most larger lakes will show up on your gps map with the downloaded waypoint

Not enough memory in the GPS units to hold all the ProMap Series lake map data.

You download and upload waypoints and routes. It's still pretty slick. Especially when you can download 500 waypoints and Print out your map(s) for the day. More than enough to keep you busy for a day or many of fishing.

You can get a ProMap Series MMC chip for Navionics enabled GPS units for close to $199. Those you can see the entire lake on your GPS unit. A Lowrance x15 is one of those units.

Same deal with C-Chip enabled GPS units. You won't see many of these in the Upper Midwest though.

Lakemaster Pro maps rock!!!!

Just ask the guys that fished Winnie this past weekend with me.

We had the whole lake loaded on the Laptop in the truck. We would upload good looking spots to the GPS and then fish those spots. GPS Coords were dead on. These maps will change the way you fish and will save you tons of time.

If anyone would like to see them in action, feel free to e-mail me. I will do my best to demo it for you.

scotty,
I know you already have a Garmin 76, but the new Lowrance handheld Ifinder Pro will run the Navionics multi media cards (MMC) and display graphics.

SpikeRoberts, Thanks for the reply. this fall I also bought a i-finder, just the basic one. It was on close out so I got it cheap. I have the Lowrance LMS-320 in my boat. I also bought the Navtronics Hot spots MMC for it. I have tried and tried to get that chip to work in my i-finder but it hasn't worked. I even talked to a "expert" and he told me how to get the chip to work but nothing. Not to put any company down but I'm not very happy with Navtronics MMC. I've had a couple of chances to see the Lakemaster software in action. I think they have better detail and info. I wish I would have got the MMC Lakemaster offer.

Thanks for all the info. I really wanted to be able to put the whole map on my gps. I understand with the size of the map it won't fit. I really like the laptop idea. I think I need a new computer for work, If you know what I mean. grin.gif I think I'll look into some new topo software for hunting just in case.
