Gps Lake chip question

7 posts in this topic

I'm buying an Ifinder H2O gps unit and I'm wondering How much the local (Minnesota) lake chip will cost me on top of the cost of the unit itself. Do I have to buy the chip or is it possible to borrow a chip from someone to load the info into the unit?

You will have to buy a Lakemaster Or Nav chip, You can't load the information into the unit it just read it off the chip ever time. You CAN NOT COPY THE CHIP, if you buddy has one you can not make a copy of it. the chips will got blank! It is going to cast you around another $100 on top of the h20 cost grin

I got the blk/wht version but I also purchased another Phlueger bait caster this one is an echelon/All star MH combo with some other terminal tackle knick knacks.... totaling a bit over 4 benjes.... The black and white should work just fine I'm hoping. I couldn't justify another hundred for color when the contour lines are really what I'm interested in and I should be able to see those just fine without color.

Fever, have you got that thing figured out yet..? I ended up buying a DVD just to learn how to work it, I went through the manual but I'm kind of a visual guy and it was much easier to figure it out by watching the DVD.

    • I would say your results speak for themselves, we often do things that don't make sense or trade short term gain for long term trouble. Nature does things for a reason that we often don't understand, why try to fix what isn't broken?
    • Two charter boats. (11 people) Fishing was very slow last Sunday afternoon (8), but we did really well on Monday morning (43). Due to bad luck drawing cards, neither Mrs Duff or I touched a rod on Sunday. She went 5 for 5 on Monday. That's fishing for ya though. And true fishermen understand that.   Some real nice fish this year, good luck to those that make it out there.      
    • And no, it does not have some sort of virus. They are calling it a phishing site and it is not. It competes with Google adsense so it make sense for Google to be sloppy in their algorithm.
    • Great storytelling with pictures on a portion of your life experiences in the  great outdoors.  Thanks for sharing Len.  
    • Len - This was a very nice article.  I enjoyed your writing style.  Take care.
    • I am going to pick up a box to pattern against what I am shooting now. Here is my question. They are available in both 1 3/4 oz. shot and 1 7/8 oz. shot in 12 gauge. In a 3" 12 gauge #5 shot shell, that comes out to a 21 pellet difference. The velocity for 1 3/4 is 1200 fps, for 1 7/8 is 1080. At 20 yards it would make very little difference, but say at 45 yards would you rather have the extra 21 pellets or the added velocity? I suppose the answer is to buy both and pattern them, but I am curious as to the thoughts of the folks on this board. Thanks
    • I was looking to get an otter XT pro cabin this winter, I was wondering of anyone on here has an otter in the pro platform and how they like the extra insulated walls. Does it seem bulky? Too warm on above 0 days? I wouldn't mind just the normal cabin but they only offer it with a bench it seems but having the extra insulation may be nice to have for those cold days here and there. 
    • Thank You for the very interesting and enjoyable morning read
