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

    • got time to check it out (finally). All it was was the positive side of the battery has 2 cables that run to it. I found the computer one was closest to battery and the starter one was on the outside. This had to be turned to starter cable first and the computer cable second ????.  Alls well after that. I also had to get a longer bolt in it to make a better connection..
    • I'm in, in zone 13
    • Tough game for the Preds.  Seemed like Rinne really let the team down last night.  The was a "Wild" like performance, shut the other team down and let in a couple softies and let the game slip away.  
    • congrats to your dad Borch!

    • Nice work Borch for you and your dad. Congrats . I have been seeing a lot of strutters of the weekend . Those 20 gauges are awesome sure put a hurting on .
    • Another fantastic week of fishing up in the Northwest Angle!

      Two weeks into the Minnesota season an abundance of saugers are congregating around Little Oak, as well as other small islands near Crow Duck, making for an easy shore lunch spot while staying close to home. Jigging at 18-24 has produced the most fish but it isn’t too early to be pulling spinners.
      On the Canadian side, walleyes are more dispersed but very plentiful on main lake points with current anywhere from 15-20 ft. of water, holes remain consistent.  Almost any method is producing fish, gold/yellow/orange jigs with a minnow seems to be the most popular.  The northern pike bite remains strong with many thirty plus fish being seen. 

      We hope to see you soon!

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
