Lakemaster MN 2009 SD Card

7 posts in this topic

I just bought the 2009 Lakemaster MN SD card and I noticed on the lakes, the contours are all black (on my H2OC GPS). On my old card (2007), the lakes were in color-dark blue for deep water to white for shallow water. Is there a problem with the SD card or has anyone noticed this on there units.

I had my wife pick it up and she said that the guy told her that it was the card that came out a month ago, I could not see anything on the card that said it was 2009 or 2008. I just know that it is newer than the one I had which is the 2007.

They are black contour lines on my 2008 card. What's the numbering on your card?

Here are the numbers of the MN LakeMaster chips I have owned:

2006: LKPM-MN 108-180

2007: LKPM-MN 108-203

2008: LKPM-MN 108-308TW

I really don't think the 2009's are out yet. They switched from colored to all black contours in 2008 supposedly to see the definition better especially in sunlight. However I think this was a poor move and I prefer the depth colored contour lines much better. I usually throw in my older chip when I'm on a lake that has both contours the same depths.

I must have the 2008 which is fine, but i'm not sure I like the black and white contours.

Here is what I got from LakeMaster:

Can you tell me what the difference is going to be between the 08 and 09 chips? I heard there are going to be more HD maps?

Thanks

Josh

Hi Josh,

Yes, there will be approximately 50 more high-definition lakes

on the new product when it is available. We will release a lake

list when it becomes available. Again, we do not have any type

of release date at this time since we do not control that aspect.

If you have further questions, please contact us.

Best Regards,

    • that would be samanthasquatch

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
