i use the lakemaster chip from 08 in my lowrance h20c so i know the skinny on that. and i am very very impressed as it not only shows lakes and dryditch creeks it also has loads of info on streetnames and buisness and man i tell ya its night and day vrs the stock map info. the hug amount of lake info is super nice too

as it shows rock bed and weed beds on the more detailed lakes.

they also did the lake we are on this year in one foot contours.

its worth every penny i paid for the 2008 chip(98.00). i for one am getting the 09 chip the day its out

Depends on what unit you have and where you fish.

If you have a H2O, or H2Oc you would want the Lakemaster chip. They perform best in these units IMO. Of course that is assuming it has the series of lakes you want on it. Lakemaster zooms in a lot closer on these than the Nav chip.

With a 522c, or similar unit, it doesn't matter because performance is not an issue.

We have the 522c....should have given more info last night but was half asleep! It looks like either on.....are the details from one better than the other? Plan on using it on Lake of the Woods/northwest angle. Do you know if either covers that area?

The MN LakeMaster card does not cover LOTW, you need the LM LOTW / Rainy card for that body of water. I believe the Nav North Prem '09 card covers LOTW (not all of it, parts of it).

The list of new updates and added waters for the 09 LakeMaster MN chip is on there web site. I would compare the list from the Navionics site to that and see what chip fits your needs best.

The added waters and detain on the 09 chip is very impressive.

The 09 LakeMaster MN chip will be in retail stores on or near May 1st.

    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY

    • Great to see this in Minnesota. Trout has been on my bucket list and will happen this year. The mix of largies and smalls really works for this show and plays into the guys heads. I was pulling for Hack. He's become one of my favorites. I think these guys are gaining a new appreciation for MN.  Except maybe the Lane Bros.

    •   Wanderer, you better scaddle on out of these parts before your soul gets taken and your brain gets fried too!
    •   Yeah, you better stick with Bob's girl above old timer. She wouldn't swallow what your selling either!
