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

    • Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
    • That's rough DrJ, were you on public or private land?   
    • They're finally playing someone outside of the central division tonight, so we'll see what happens. Did Sano get suspended for throwing a punch yesterday?
    • OK, to go back to original question, how much current do the 12 volt pumps used in those sort of systems use?   I can go look up the information and figure it out, but I hoped someone here already knew the answer.  
    • DonBo, good luck on your bow quest,  your father raised you well!  What a great way to celebrate life by sharing a hunt together.
    • My family has LIfe 360 on our phones. It allows you to know exactly where that phone is at all times. My teenage kids were not to hip on the idea until my wife explained that you either have the app or you don't have a phone. It already saved a phone. My son dropped his phone in the middle of a bean field last summer.  We were able to use the app to drive a wheeler to within 10ft. Well worth it.
    • My personal opinion on the backup pumps is that they are a stop gap to buy you enough time to minimize the amount of water that backs up during a torrential storm while you get your primary pumps on a generator.    Obviously the biggest factor is to figure out how much water can enter the drainage system during the heaviest downpours and that can help you decide what gpm you need to stay ahead of the water. If you get a bigger backup pump then you will burn through a battery faster.    If you don't get a lot of water in the system ever and if the sump pump only runs periodically during even heavy rains and wet weather then you can get more run time from a smaller system.    There really isn't a way to say exactly what you need to be 100%safe unless you know exactly what flows you have.
    • Already doing many of these.  It's slowly improving.
    • I was just getting some info on this unit: http://www.zoellerpumps.com/en-ap/product/63-basement-sentry#features     I am sure you could hook up multiple batteries as well
    • Sunday, pulled a group of 3 toms from about 500 yds across private into the public only to hang up at 60 yds. We worked them for 2 hrs and they never got in front of the blind. They finally got closer, but instead of going in front of the blind, they got behind the blind at about 5 yards inside the woodline and could hear them stepping on twigs. Man what a rush. Sadly, they walked back onto private and out of our lives LOL. Kinda wish I was hunting with a shotgun!   3 or 4 gobblers were rattling off behind us in the woods in the morning and shut up by 7. The 3 that we got to come in from private were to the other side and they didn't gobble til they were close enough to see/hear our setup. Those two hours were between 8 and 10. Will try again.
