Lakemaster VS Navionics

4 posts in this topic

I'm curious which is preferred and why. I've been using a friends '07 Lakemaster all year, but he just took it back and I need something. <grumble grumble grumble>

Thanks

Jeff

I think that the navionics chip has more detail but almost too much sometimes. It can be tough to read if you don't have a color screen. I believe it covers more territory than the lakemasters. I have a WI and MN lakemasters however and I am happy with them. I am not sure which is more accurate.

I have a Lakemaster 2007 and a Navionics 2008 (needed Canada so we have both). The Navionics has a bit more detail but it also takes longer to load if we zoom in or out. I'm a Lakemaster fan. Next time we're out remind me to put both in so you can do a side by side comparison. I also have an old 2004 Navionics chip that I'd trade you for a Diet Coke or something. smile

I've used the lakemaster a bunch and that last time we were out, I do recall how slow the navionics was to load. It would be great to do a side-by-side. Maybe setup a trolling run and start lookin around!

    • Hey you guys-you forget I'm an old Alaskan.  I know all I need to know about the dingbat and her famous family. If you are actually accepting her blather as useful intelligence and knowledge than you are as squirrely as she is. Let her just fade away for Pete's sake.
    • Hi Dave.  We have talked about this briefly a year or two ago.  Due to the paranoia factor on this site I and most others aren't here as much.  I do miss guys like you Dave.  I remember the pic of your camper at Itasca so we took a drive through this summer.   I wondered where your spot was.  Man I hope you come out of this alright Dave.  My Uncle had diabetes bad and finally lost the battle.  The docs said change your diet or take the shot.  He said give me the shots.  Well that lasted for many years and his body finally gave in..  He should have changed his diet too.  I took him to a couple of bear baits he wanted to see and he told me his feet were finally giving in.  AND he was a tough guy.   Anyway Dave we all love you and I hope you can persevere....   I am thinking good things for you so you think positive too.....    Barry.    Hope this isn't deleted for one of their paranoid reasons...  If it is deleted I will never be back as many others.   So sad.....
    • It is interesting how people got out so early.  I have done it too.  3 or 4 hits with the spud and it is alright.......  NO it isn't ....  It is manly to talk about getting on the ice first.  Well now that I am older I realize it is stupid talk not manly.  The fishing sales world is just as guilty.  They talk about the first ice fishing being so good.  They actually are hugely responsible for getting stupid people out on thin ice.  The lets make a buck is more important than anything.  ANYTHING!!! 
    • Great pictures.   I'm used to seeing eagles, but those pictures are outstanding. 
    • Didn't I just do that?   Can't you read? 
    • Only if they have a drinking problem and maybe me implants.  That's all the Canadian folks care about....
    • That sounds like a great idea. 
    • I know perfectly well how phishing works.   Typical Liberal thinks anyone who is not toeing the party line is ignorant.    It isn't that hard to phish a fool like podesta.
    • I feel like we were just water skiing not to long ago!  Definitely caught a sun burn for deer season ha.  I'll be doing my fishing at the grocery store for a bit yet.
    • Remember, your fishing for pickerel!!  No such thing as walleye where your fishing
