LakeMaster PC maps help needed

3 posts in this topic

I previously used LM on my PC to study lakes, make maps and transfer GPS points, ect... Since I got an iFinder H2O and more recently, a GPS / sonar combo in my boat, and haven't used the PC software for a couple years.

I also recently got a laptop w/ Windows Vista since the old PC "died." I wasn't too surprised I wasn't able to get any of my 3 old LM disks (Mille Lacs, Minnetonka and an Upgrade disk from 2004) to load up. I was surprised shocked when I went to the LakeMaster site to order a new disk, and saw that they are NOT WINDOWS VISTA COMPATIBLE. cry

Any suggestions or ways "around" this?? I'd like to start transferring waypoints / trails, ect. back and forth again, but not sure if I can the way I'm set up now. Any help appreciated in advance.

We are all waiting patiently for the vista patch! Some of us for over a year. whistle

Navionics has come out with some PC software that is vista compatible. I have not tried it yet myself but it sounds like a pretty good deal. For $19.99 you get the software and 1 free HD download. Then you buy additional HD maps as you need them.

For sure check out this thread in the sponsor forum before you buy anything.

I will be picking one up soon.

I love Lakemaster, but I think their development is a little slow. They should consider hiring more people, or they will risk losing more market share to Navionics.

I'm still waiting for a detailed upgrade to Kabetogama. They don't have it, but Navionics does.

Who do you think will be the first to offer one for Namakan? And guess who offers an upgrade trade-in program for your old chip? Not Lakemaster frown

    • Lol at 3 I think I got a little time
    •   Please try and get her to know the difference as soon as you can!  Just saying.
    • You cant be serious, can you?  I think you got that backwards Dave, much like waiting until you become diagnosed  before you open your eyes to bad habits.   Hindsight is always 20/20, guys like you are the reason i take the measures i do now. Im not ripping on you for not knowing because its easy to become unaware of the damage your actually doing to yourself. Learning from others mishaps sticks a lot more than reading about some new trend.
    • Unfortunate your taxidermist could not do all three in a  nice natural  of setting because my guess is it was a female and her two kits. That's just judging from the pictures of course. Would have been a nice family photo, so to speak.
    • Thanks Big Dave. I looked through this stuff and really think a turkey hunt would be something different.  That Mexican bird would be a cool deal.   We will see, I have time!
    •       Because $$$$$$$$$....   You know, free speech and all that..
    • Why not get rid of the cozy relationship that the hospitals,insurance companies, medical device and drug suppliers have and open the market up to competition.    Prime example. You have sleep apnea. Go to the clinic and get a mandated sleep study in their room which costs about $4k for the night.  In an open market private companies could do this for a fraction of the price.   Once you test positive they give you a prescription to buy a machine at their facility and the cost ranges from $1600 to $3600.   You can buy the exact product online for $400-700. But the clinics and doctors don't want you buying there for obvious reasons.    Just one example buy this is what I would like to see changed.  
    • The Rum River is fun anywhere from St. Francis to Anoka. Probably fun north of there to, but I've never done it. It's been quite a few years since I've been on it, but was all no-wake and assume it still is so you don't have to worry much about big boats. 
    •     Why not pass a law that says politicians can't rake in more than 10 percent of the campaign costs of their highest third party competitor?....       wording
