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.

    •   When someone gets to the personal aspect, whether it's me or someone else, I will challenge them and if they can justify what they have said about an individual --OK -- otherwise show me why, and if it is just their opinion say so. I'll accept that if it's their opinion.   There is nothing generic about an insult, an insult is an insult. What do you consider as a douchebag?
    • Not sure why people get so worked up about being called dummies, poopyheads and sons of bees.  Whatever, its generic insults and this is the internet.   But yeah, there's a line somewhere in the there that separates the real douchebags* from the rest of us.  You know it when you see it.   *Sorry if any douchebags felt personally attacked by being called douchebags.
    • I was addressing it to JigSawJimmy Peatmoss  response : That's an opinion, not anything more , so I let it go.
    • Created/Saved all these jobs, cut gajillions off AF1 costs, etc.  Ok, so how did the that work?  Usually these sort of dealings aren't totally one sided.  At least the carrier deal had a bunch of Pence fingerprints on tax incentives Trump took credit for.   I have doubts that King Cheeto just shows up and blows a bunch of smoke up assses and corporate executives are just like, "Yay!"   Is Trump's Twitter bully pulpit that powerful?  He randomly yells at Boeing and they just fold over for him?  I thought we realized Trump on Twitter is only for the LOLs.
    • Well hope the Trump supporters are having fun, seems those days are numbered. Turns out you can't just yell fake news at real news and make it go away. The Feds are closing in, and at best it seems Trump thinks throwing Manafort to the wolves might get them off his tail. Anywho, lots of news today.   The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign   McCain: Congress doesn't have 'credibility' to handle Russia probes    Because this happened - House Intelligence chair discloses classified intel in clumsy effort to validate Trump   Also this earlier in the day -  Former campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly worked for a Russian billionaire with a plan to "greatly benefit the Putin Government."     And in completely unrelated news - remember those Carrier jobs you bragged about Trump saving? Yeah, those jobs are gone. Carrier pocketed the tax breaks then screwed the workers anyway. Great negotiation there. http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/job-cuts-endure-at-indiana-factories-despite-trump-pressure-416511193.html
    •   Who are you addressing this to? I did not make the statement only re-posted it. I also don't find PEATMOSS's comment very humorous as well.   PEATMOSS said: This is still, by far, the funniest thing I have ever read on these threads in a decade.
    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY
