Has anyone gotten the free chip? How long did it take? I sent mine in may 5 and haven't received it yet.

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.

Sent mine in on 5-12-08 and recieved it 6-23-08. My confirmation e-mail had the incorrect chip... had to send them a message to correct. Received the 07 Minnesota Lakemaster.

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.

    • I've had it on a few different lakes and still the same result. I'm a tungsten jig type of person, thought those showed up better on the vex?? Bigger profile jigs show up better than small. Any type of jig is a in-out flicker. Been on some finiky fish lately,  used some very small jigs and they barely show up. I'll try the battery next! Thanks guys

    • If your ex can get prostate cancer......
    • It was doing bad under pawlenty?
    • I know I would  That bacon really looked good!!!
    • Word of caution !! Lake Superior will generate a east wind for days and the fish bite great. I think it has something to do with the air sinking out in the center and it pushes in all directions and in Duluth we get the wind out of the east.
    • This weekend I got a chance to use the 6" Nils with my Dewalt. That was crazy fast and had both of my brothers asking more questions about the whole setup. I believe the 6" cuts faster then my 8" Nils with the Tanaka motor and I thought that was fast.
    • Some possibilities in the St. Paul / SE metro area.   Joe's sporting goods in St. Paul Blue Ribbon Bait in Oakdale Ace Hardware in IGH   There is another bait shop off of HWY 10 in Newport, but I'm not sure if it's still there and google can't seem to find it.  I also seem to remember a gas station on Concord, south of the St. Paul Airport somewhere that has bait, but I just randomly ran into it one afternoon and I might be confused.  
    • Ya, me too.....they're extremely rare animals nowadays.. I searched (online) every hardware store, box store, Home Improvement, office supply store....zip. Only place that has them...Walmart. I suggest ya hit the used a bit and goodwill stores, they always seem to have a few. I'll keep my peepers open for ya for a good one if ya want, otherwise, get someone to order for ya off of Amazon Prime.
    • Hey everyone, had the opportunity to get out with my new jiffy 4lite propane, an Ion, and the Clam Drill plate kit (drill plate/gear box/auger with 18v Dewalt).  I was with 25 guys and I was the only one with augers. So it was the perfect time to try out all three and see what was preferred. In the end the ratings would be:   Jiffy 5/5 Ion 4/5 Clam 4/5   The propane was faster and cut the lake like a hot knife on butter. The Ion and Clam were not as fast, but were still able to cut plenty of holes without any issues. The batteries on the clam did not last as long, but if I were to buy higher amp batteries that could be solved. The Ion was slower than the other two but was consistent and did cut a lot of holes.
