gps lakemaster chips ?

6 posts in this topic

When you save a waypoint with your chip in the unit, does it save to the unit or the chip or both. I put a 113 lowrance on my new boat and am getting a chip. And I was just wondering for switching the chip to a handheld or a buddies gps if the spots are on there.

Thanks

GRH - you'll need to transfer the waypoints using another data chip.

Garmin does both. My way points are on both the hand held and the gps/chartplotter in the boat even wthout the chip. Then my way points are intalled automatically if I were to insert a differant card like say a topical map.

I thought Lowrance units were simular.

I know my lowrance saves to the unit and I think it saves to the chip aswell.

It saves your waypoints to the unit. If you want you can also save them to a blank SD card in case you want to transfer them to another unit or back them up on your computer, etc.

It will display those waypoints whether you're using the built-in base map (ie. no map card), or a map card like Navionics or LakeMaster

    • My buddy Dan and I have been going to the same farm for 3 years now and the turkey hunting is almost unfair. We've never been skunked and the only time we haven't tagged out is the first year.    This year the bowhunting was tough. We were trying to be fancy and get things on film and it hurt us tremendously. So, naturally, we gave up on filming and went back to having fun.    We shot 4 turkeys, a tom and a jake each, all by fanning (reaping). The action was intense and super fun. Additionally, after having a set busted by a wandering daytime coyote, I lip squeaked her into to 20 yards and finished her off with the same treatment, a load of #6 to the face. My jake and the coyote are on cell phone video so I will see about sharing those.   My tom, came on the last day. He ran more than 200 yds just to confront that turkey fan. Due to a depression in the landscape, I had no idea where he would come up. He emerged at 10 FEET! and in a split second I shot him at 8FEET!! Thankfully I had the bead on his head or I would've likely missed. Nothing beats turkey hunting with your best buddy.    And I'm having a taxidermist friend of mine do a euro mount on the coyote skull. Unfortunately the hide was shedding terribly and was matted with mud. 
    • Merriam hybrid killed in Nebraska 5/4/17. 
    • Bonus points!  Well done Andy.  
    • Now I figured out how to add pictures. Time to submit for a score. 
    • I think they got greedy and it backfired. Lots of ads everywhere, requiring subscriptions for some forums. They split the boards up into two different websites (fishing MN and HSO), the boards went down for a while, and most the traffic got fed up it all and just moved on. I used to check this place daily, now maaaaybe once a week.
    • That would be my guess as well... If you run it "as is" you are going to wreck the motor due to the lean condition.
    • Man, this place used to be hopping with all kinds of posts and some great info being shared.  What happened?  This place is almost as dead as Aaron Hernandez.
    • How about the ones sold at fleet farm.  Full jacket military stuff probably not optimum for defense..so the normal stuff.
