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!

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
