"The All New 2009 LakeMaster® ProMap Minnesota Card is plug & play, which means you simply insert the chip into your Lowrance unit, turn it on, and the lakes automatically appear on your screen. It's that simple. The new MN chip is loaded with an amazing 770 total lakes with contours, of which 180 are high definition LAKEMASTER PROMAP lakes. That's over 50 new ProMap lakes. Just a few of the new updates for 2009 include: Shallow Water Areas for all ProMap lakes, Western Lake Superior in amazing 3 foot contours, Duluth Harbor and St.Louis River in 1 foot contours, and all of Kabetogama lake in 1 foot contours!"

Do you mean that the lake you are on will come up automatically?

The older chips were plug and play as well. I know my 07 chip was that way. Yes, as soon as it acquires satellite signal it will show you what lake you are on.

I had two of the 2007 chips, and got the 2008 last year with our cabins lake with 1' surveys and it was great. The 2007 was ok but the 2008 showed me new places on the lake I have never seen after fishing it for over fifteen years.

I'll be looking for an 08 when people start unloading them when upgrading. I have the 07 now, but I'll be looking for the 1' contours on the same lake as wplatehunter.

I see reed's has them for $99.00 along with free shipping. there are a few older versions on c...list going for anywhere from $50.00 to $ 80.00 In my opinion buying a new 2009 version loks like the ticket. Folks selling use sporting goods items in Minnesota must figure there is no depriciation on used items

I just picked mine up from Scheels in St Cloud. I called Gander and they told me that they weren't even released yet. Reeds also has them with free shipping. As far as selling them on [YouNeedAuthorization], I have my old chip on there and many people who haven't had a chip or don't need some of the added lakes, why wouldn't you save some money and buy a used one? Most people never fish the newly added lakes and if I didn't, I would have never upgraded. I think your statement on depreciation is true on some items, but as far as a chip, why pay more for features you will never use?

They do their own on-the-water detailed surveys, then compile the data into the maps

Does anyone know if they are going to have any Micro SD versions to use in the Lowrance ones. I know the new Lowrance handheld GPS units are going to Micro SD so it would be nice to have that for when my H2O finally konks out and can't be replaced.

Just ordered my 2009 MN lake Master chip. I was happy with the 2007 but as I scanned the new HD 1' contour lakes for 2009 I noticed that Elephant Lake has been added and since this is where I do all my MN fishing I had to upgrade.

    •   If we retrace what happened to get Obamacare passed in the first place, we need to remember the narrative that was used by the Democrats that there were 49 million Americans with no insurance.  Now they are saying 24 million Americans will lose their insurance if the law is struck down.  So I'm taking that to mean they actually got 24 million people to sign up in the exchanges under the law after 7 years.  So about as "successful" as the REAL ID Act...   Between the healthcare industry, big pharma, and the insurance industry, somewhere between $300 and $400 million was spent in lobbying to get the ACA passed.   The Koch brothers are pledging $300 to $400 million in the 2018 election cycle to strike the legislation down, and have also stated they will not support any politician in the future who votes for Ryan-Care.   It's how things work in the real world, like it, or not....

    •    In a  free market, ObamaCare would have collapsed two years ago. And all the promises made regarding it are and have been falling apart.   But government does not let boondoggles collapse.

He is basically a Trump crony at this point, trying his best to obstruct the committees investigation.   There's Trump's transition team. Now go back and watch the Comey hearing. I think you will hear a certain 2 GOP representatives who are only worried about who is leaking intelligence rather than what the intelligence says (or literally the exact same thing Trump says).
    •   They could for example sell the information to your insurance company that would promptly adjust your rates if you showed a tendency toward unhealthy behaviors. It doesn't take much imagination.   There is actually a plan to fight this one. The goal is to crowd source some funding, then purchase the data for congressmen and publish them all to the public.
