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.

    •   You will get plenty of recipes for a brine or injection, or even an injectable brine which work good for turkey breasts.  A common injection are the store bought ones you see in sporting goods stores in the cooking section. All kinds of flavors from Cajun, to Honey Butter, Garlic & Herbs, etc. Some even come with a free syringe.  Some simple injections you can make are apple juice (plain or jazzed up), beer with seasonings, a doctored up chicken broth and one of my favorites a Lite Apple Brine.  Since it's injected I like lower salt than you would use for an immersion brine.  My Lite Apple Brine's ratio is 1 gram of canning salt mixed into 1 ounce of apple juice.  If you buy an 8oz bottle of apple juice, just add 8 grams of canning salt, shake it and you are ready to inject.     Years ago I asked Old Dave, an online friend, for help on an injection for a pastramied turkey breast recipe I was developing.  He sent me a modified version of Shakes Injectable Brine, which is fancier than my Lite Apple Brine.... and guess what, I really like it too.  Here is the recipe... and if you want to read more, I'll have the link to my write-up below.  BTW, I was skeptical of the cloves, but I tried the first one following the recipe and it's good.  My only variation is I'll use agave nectar instead of the honey sometimes.    Old Dave's Poultry Injectable Brine, based off of "Shakes" Injectable Brine. 
      32oz clean water (non-chlorinated and not softened)
      1/4 cup pickling salt
      2 teaspoons of TenderQuick
      1/3 cup clover honey
      3-4 bay leaves
      1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
      1/2 teaspoon pickle spice

      Heat it up in a sauce pan but do not boil. For a 12-15 pound turkey, inject 2 oz in each leg, 2 oz in each thigh, and 4 oz in each side of the breast. 16 oz total per turkey. I like to do the injection at least 8-10 hours before the fire.   My Pastramied Turkey Breast write-up can be found HERE   EDIT, you smoke them until the internal is 165° to 170°.  An injection will help keep them moist even at the 170° temp.  I like a mix of cherry and hickory, but keep the amount gentle.  Apple would be a safe bet for your first one and you can always use a stronger wood next time.  
    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
