2008 Lake of the Woods, LakeMaster Chip

3 posts in this topic

Has anyone out there used the new 2008 Lake of the Woods/Rainy Lake, LakeMaster chip?

Specifically I'm wondering what kind of detail is included for Kabetogama, Namakan, Sand Point and Crane Lakes? Their documentation states that the chip includes "enhanced" contours of these lakes. I'm wondering what exactly that means. Is it any better than what is already loaded on the Lowrance units (5ft contours, buoys, some hazards, etc)?

Just wondering if anyone has had any experience using this chip. Thanks for the help.

I'm not sure if we are talking about the same chip but I purchased a new 2008 LOW,RR,Rainy lake chip and the river has 1' contours. I don't believe there is anything else on this map and for the river, very nice.

I believe that you may be looking for the 2008 lakemaster Pro map series to include the lakes you named.

I would not count on it being much better than the old version.

Either buy a Navionics Kab map, or wait for Lakemaster to survey the lakes.

This has been a long time coming. Company is to small to handle the demand and needs to recoup their funds quicker so they do the lakes that will give them the most bucks for their bang.

We on the hand, want the most bang for our bucks!

    • Yes, you do have to have at least a weak cell signal and battery for the GPS to work. I know that can be challenging at times in the woods.
    •   Not sure about the new V6, but the old inline 6 was bulletproof, and had a lot of low end torque, which is a desirable feature in an off-road vehicle.       Any 1/2 ton pickup truck from the 70's and early 80's in particular, had a much better frame than a Jeep.  Body panels rust in all of them.   Not saying this is a deal-breaker for a Jeep, just something to watch for, since it is a very common problem.    
    • After doing a little looking there are a lot of options to these things. Anyone know how that new V6 compares to the in line 6? Some of the stuff I would like is the bigger tires and because I would consider putting a plow on it a lower rear end gear. The Dana 44 rear axel would be nice and would want a hard and soft top. I'm in no hurry to get one so Ill wait till the right one comes around. There are a lot of them out there that never leave the tar. More options in the later models as far as transmissions to. So it also comes down to how much I want to spend on one and how late of a model to buy. Sure don't want to spend 35K on a new one.
    • Well yeah but can you name a vehicle built for off road including any domestic pickup truck that doesn't have issues with rust. Fenders, rockers, frames etc. If you play in the mud and salt you need to maintain them. UTVs are no different. Ask yourself why Polaris would put the air filter canister intake in the rear wheel well so it is sucking in the air from the dustiest area they could possibly draw it from resulting in a 4k bill when the motor grenades.    Jeeps are fun, used ones can be had at a reasonable price but by their nature you need to be careful when you purchase because if the previous owner drove them the way they were marketed then they may have some issues.   But the aftermarket has an amazing amount of mods,upgrades and accessories to make your Jeep into anything you want and because the generally go 10 years between major design changes there are a large number of parts available if you need them.     
    • Anyfish it's still points and way better than a zero for points! Congrats on the fine eating bird.
    • Pick up a Jake morning.  Not going help the team score, if at all.  But it sure will taste good.
    • It's been very quiet in the woods the past few days.  Some gobbling this morning.
    • Nice! Way to go! Hope I'm able to get out and enjoy hunting when I'm that age.
    • Well, one of the advantages to owning a Jeep is there are always plenty of Jeep owners out there looking for parts, so if you get ahold of one with a bad frame, you could always part it out and sell the parts to another Jeep owner who believes they have a good frame....
