He's talking about the free lakemaster chip they are giving away when you buy certain models of fishfinders from them. I just sent mine in last week so I can't say how long it takes. The form has a number to call and a HSOforum to check on your rebate. It says to call them if you haven't received it in eight weeks. Only been about five for ya. But you can go to the HSOforum and see what the status is.

I sent mine in 6 weeks ago as well. I just recently received a confirmation e-mail linking me to the site that gives me my order status. Make sure you look at this and see that everything is correct. They had me down for Hot Spots South when I asked for Lake Master Minnesota...I haven't had the best customer service with lowrance so I hope it gets here before the end of the summer.

JimBuck, Funny you should mention that. I sent mine in as well and got a confirmation e-mail. It also had me down for the Hot Spots South when I had ordered a Hot Spots North. I sent them a e-mail back indicating that I didn't want or need a Hot Spots South card but have not heard back from them yet. We'll see what happens!

I got my chip yesterday. I think I sent in the order close to the opener. I went on-line to chekc the status last week and it said it found nothing with my information, so I thought I was over a barrel. Then, it shows up. I'm trying to read it on my computer but can't get it to read. I'm suppose to be able to do this, right?

You can't read them on your computer, in the old days it would erase your Nav chip if you tried to do that.

I've heard that you can download the emulator from Lowrance and then see the chip on the emulator screen, but I've never tried it myself.

There is one store that comes to mind that would have given you one out of there stock and let the store wait for the replacement. SAS Mankato.

Sales guy at Cabelas said it would likely be the 07 card. So I was not surprized.

They are 07 chips. I believe this was a way to get rid of old stock. But they are still great chips.

Lowrance will rplace all 07 chips to the retailer with 08 chips so why force feed the consumer with out dated material?

I had the same problem. On my confirmation e-mail it said HotSpots South for the chip I ordered..... crazy After calling them and speaking to someone I was able to change it. I think the promotion is being handled by a separate company so customer satisfaction/service is out the window on this promotion....

Good luck,

Got my chip today. Yep, they sent me the Hotspots South. Go figure....

I called the 1800 number on my confimration e-mail they sent me last month and it was a recorded message about meeting hot single girls in my area. That went over real well with my wife smile

I called the 1866 number on the rebate form that I had made a copy of and after several attempts I was able to talk to a human. The lady I talked to was going to talk to the manager to see if anything can be done and to call them back in 10 business days if I don't here from them. So now I wait.

I ended up buying a 520c on the 4th of July and so i wanted to take advantage of the offer. the side of the coupon that you chose the map card states that the coupon has to be mailed by 08-07-08 but the small print on the other side states that it has to be post marked by 07-07-08. I mailed it today. 07-08-08. I hope they still honor the offer. but i guess it will be my fault if i missed the boat on this free offer.

    • It was Trump who made the claim that the RNC was "crooked and rigged", and went on to get the nomination anyway. But it was the DNC and the RNC who made the 15 percent polling rule for third party candidates to enter the debates after Perot made both major party candidates look foolish in the 1992 debates. So obviously, "crooked and rigged" is only a problem for Trump when he perceives it not to be working in his favor.  
    • Yes it will, it's almost impossible to kill horseradish.
    • Haha! Can't find a loss on the schedule.
    • Lots of pressure in the Little Falls area. First time hunting in the area. Most of the "hunters" in the area seemed to subscribe to the show up right at shooting light and set up just up or down river from someone with decoys out, then call wildly and blindly while pass shooting birds. We pulled the plug on our Saturday sit only an hour in when our boat had steel shot hit it the second time.  We did enjoy ourselves though spending the rest of Saturday snooping around a hard to get to public slough. Then Sunday  we worked a 12-mile stretch of river and scouted up some new water for future hunting.  Lots of fun, can't wait to see how the rest of the season turns out. 
    • If I choose not to dig the horseradish, will it keep growing next year? 
    • That's funny, I was just looking at airplane tickets..... 
    • It could be said that Trump is actually a third party candidate, who is taking on the two establishment parties one at a time rather than both at once like Gary Johnson.      Sort of like a fight against two opponents.   Take out one first then fight the other.   Trump was pretty clearly not a part of the Republican Party establishment when he declared his candidacy.   He was opposed by all of the other candidates as well as the Party apparatus.    But now they have lost and are faced with losing their influence if they don't support the nominee.   Gary Johnson, on the other hand, chose to go the traditional third party route and take on the whole establishment at the same time, an endeavor that is doomed.  Even Ross Perot or Ralph Nader couldn't pull it off.   It was Trump who had the the insight to realize that he could inject himself into the cluster thing that was the Republican nominating process and with his money, media savvy, and recognition get the nomination.  That's how it has to be done these days.   And it may have been a unique opportunity.    Next time the Republicans will probably change their process to be rigged like the Dems did after the McGovern debacle, especially if Trump loses.    
    • that one got by me.  Missed the metasarcasm.
    • I have a couple of spots where scrapes are opened up every year by opening weekend bow in mid Sept, they aren't easy to find but they are out there.
    • I think it might would have worked better if that tree in the picture would have not fallen in front of the rub.   also I had a fair amount  of does and fawns check it and lick it.
