I have a Eagle 503c - GPS stand alone. I put the great lakes navionics SD chip in there - and I love it.

I live next to Lk. Superior, and it does a good job here, but last month, it did really well for us out of Bailey's Harbor.

Good luck.

The last few years I've used the Navionics Hotmaps Premier chip (North) and it does a decent job of showing depth soundings, but this year I picked up the newest Lakemaster WI chip and it has depth contours. Easier to see the "structure" of the bottom.

I didn't notice too much of a difference in using the LkM chip, but only because I pretty much went off my waypoints. But if you're new to fishing the area, it does a decent job of showing some of the shallow humps, deep slots and shelves that can be found around Door County.

"buying everything to get the boat ready"... Sounds like you might not have enough money for a new chip!! smile You can also study paper maps that show contours and find them on your plotter by Lat/Lon Coords.

Have fun! It's definitely a blast to get rigged up, but you never feel like you are completely done...
