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

    • 70 HP Johnson motor.  Older model, but low hours on it.  Starts up fine, but when I go to give it gas the engine bogs down and won't come anywhere near running as fast as it should.  Anyone have any thoughts on the cause?  Wondering if maybe the carbs need to be cleaned.  If so, anyone know how much of a job that is?   Thank you in advance for any feedback.
    • The Warriors won't lose anyone that wants to stay with them since Durant is basically sitting back and saying pay my boys and then we will take care of business.  Hard to lure a free agent from them if their studs take such paycuts...
    • Score!! Nice find.
    • I still don't like the Hanzal/White trade.  I can see a team that is on the edge or coming into the playoffs as a 6,7,8 seed, but at the time, the Wild was 1st in the West and everything was going great.  I really didn't see a reason why they needed to change or bring in other players.  If it ain't broke, don't fix it.  They could have brought guys up from Iowa down the stretch to spell the vets and give them some motivation.   I'd like to know what Baby Boudreau wants to change or what he would like to see on the team. It would be nice to have somebody that really knows and wants to work the front of the net.  Parise is the closest thing we have to that and that isn't good for his longevity.  Be nice if Coyle embraced a role like that and used his size out front.  
    • Probably because most people wouldn't sell one of these for that much. I'm not sure why they did and well I didn't ask. Maybe they didn't like it as even being a older grill it had hardly been used and looks like new. I already had a Holland Companion grill that works great but this is even better. 
    • Skol!  I'm excited to see how Cooks pans out.  He seems legit so far!  What was the deal with KFAN ditching the rubechat forums?  I know the political page could get a little overheated at times but the others seemed pretty tame.  Too bad! 
    • Wow!! Now THAT's a deal!!!!!!! Why can't I find stuff like that?! 
    • Well not exactly new. Found this at a yard sale for $40.     
    • Havnt seen him for a while and is a lot bigger now.
