As like most products, you need to buy a new one to upgrade. While it seems like a simple work of software magic. There is plenty of work that goes into mapping new lakes and adding new contours etc. LakeMaster can hardly do that for free.

While it might not be cost effective for someone to upgrade for a lake or two, there are always lakes being added to the software and somewhere down the road it will be worth it (or maybe not) to upgrade.

If you need a lake or two that has recently be added, you could always sell your chip and buy a new one to offset the cost.

Check with LM, I was able to upgrade my LOW chip last year to include the Canadian side of the lake. It cost me $50.00 and they sent me the packaging to send the chip back to them.

Buy a new one and sell your old one to someone who doesn't care about the update.

LM offers that on the LOW/Rainy chip but not the MN chip.

If you think you may want to upgrade from time to time it might be a good reason to go with Navionics.

Navionics offers a trade-in program. Depending on what you buy for a new chip, Navionics will send you cash back when you send the old chip back. It looks like they are offering a $50 trade-in on competitors' chips too.

Its called marketing. These companies expend a lot of capital to bring just one GPS'd lake with depth contours to the market and some want it for basically free. I don't get it...

    • The very fact that these drugs are illegal keeps the prices so high, there is a huge risk for anyone dealing them so they need to make a boat load of money for it to be worth the risk. Legalizing things always brings down the prices and makes the black market $$$ not worth the effort.
      Considering the psychedelics are the most harmless group of drugs out there then by all means go for it. This is exactly what I mean when talking about legalization, public opinion in this country is so far away from the actual science it is kind of scary. Heck when prohibition was rocking pot was 100% legal here, just think about that for a second. There is almost no rhyme or reason to many of our laws you are a shining example of that.
    •   The "war on drugs", by which I take it you mean keeping them illegal (feel free to correct me if that is not your meaning) reduces the opportunity and raises the price for addictive drugs.   There are perhaps other policies that might work, but treating Heroin or Cocaine like ibuprofin doesn't seem like a good idea.     So, what do you mean by "end the war on drugs".   Go Colorado for "hard drugs"?   Treat them like California does alcohol (sold in every grocery store, and some convenience stores)?  Make them prescription?   Decriminalize possession of small amounts? 
    •     You judge everyone by their race and religion ?      
    • Years ago brother and I at our hunting cabin for a few days of grouse hunting.  Second morning we up and at 'em just as grey dawn settling down on the woods.  We hunted up and down the hills and through the brush and brambles seeking an explosive brown ball leaping skyward. Nothing. Not a feather seen. Later, after breakfast and chores ,brother sitting in the little outhouse with the door open,  enjoying the warmth of the sunrise and contemplating life in the woods when with a flutter and a cluck-cluck,  a nice big grouse landed on a small bush about five feet in front of the outhouse. Brother looks at grouse;  grouse looks at brother. They spent   time examining each other until my brother made a move and the grouse disappeared. We didn't see him around the place for the rest of our stay.   But we found some of his cousins.
    •   Uh, no. You have stated that people should prove their own claims. I don't have the time or the inkling to go through thousands of posts to "prove" it to you so I guess it's just fake news.
    •   Uh, no.   I believe I said that people should post attributions of stuff they quote.   
    •   I could post a certain song by Aerosmith, but I won't......    And yer dang right I'm gonna!
    •   1. He's one of those scary brown people 2. He's a scary Mooslim, not a god fearing Christian 3. Donald Trump sort of likes him.       How would I know? You're the one who brought it up. I thought you always said that it is the obligation of the poster to prove the facts that they post?
