Lake Contour Maps for Smartphones

Recommended Posts

I remember reading about being able to download Navionics I believe it was for Droid phones. Can anyone attach a link to this, or shed some light on it for me. I was looking at it on Navionics HSOforum and seen I can purchase it for $13.23 on smartphone market.

Anybody have this or use it?

THavas,

I have it, and I love it!! Best $13.23 I have spent so far this year! I just got back from the lakes had 4 inches of ice everywhere and it lead me right to the deep hole I wanted to go. I also have a Droid.

Anyone know if this app has the contours to Lake of the Woods? That will sure save me money from buying the chip for my gps.

It does. and one foot contours, if that helps :-)

Make sure you get the Lakes maps, the Marine maps are just navigational aids.

Don't bother with the Lakes West app if you're from Colorado, it only has 4 lakes and 50' contours. It's nothing like their chips, which kind of suck too.

I have it on my Iphone and am only able to see contours very close to shore on LOTW. The rest of the lake is just white. Same with Upper Red.

Hey LipRipper,

Would love it if you would post a report on the results after you've compared them.

Thanks.

Anyone know if this app or another is available for Blackberry?

It is not available for Blackberry. iPhone, iPad and Android.

I downloaded it a few weeks ago for my Droid2 and is well worth the ~$13. I wish it would zoom in more then 0.1 miles. I updated the app last week. Not sure on the changes.

Update: Just took a video and uploading it now. Will post a link in a few mins (I forgot I left the cam in HD, so 50MB file). Latest update allows zoom further.

Already done! The Lakemaster is 100 times more accurate than any navionics chip IMO but I'm sure it depends on the lake...

Just had the app completely lock up and is now useless. It did this trying to enable map overlay. I will have to uninstall and reinstall. I sent a not to Navionics.

Love mine on iPhone. I can check out the lake I never had fished before and see the spot that jump out at me and memory the location and use it on my regular sonar/gps. It's pretty accurate. I like navionics better than lakemaster. JMO

I uninstalled and reinstalled the application and it still does not work. I emailed Navionics. Hope they can have a fix this week.

    • Little late to the answers, but I switched over to NAP KILLZONE and could not be happier.  They are the cats meow.  I like them better than the Rage I was shooting before.  The pictures are from a doe I shot at 13 yards.  Needless to say she didn't go more than 30 yards before she piled up.
    • The whole reason behind getting a new bow is that my 17 year old son is now standing 6'3" and the little bear bow he has is too small for him.  He likes to bow hunt, but with sports and school activities he doesn't get out a ton, so i am going to crank down the poundage on my Elite and he wants to shoot that.  So Dad is in the market for a new bow.  I can't say a bad word about the Elite, its been a great bow for me.  I have always shot a double cam bow and was just looking for opinions about what other folks like.  Not sure if a solo cam will be smoother with the draw or not.  Soon as I have time, I want to get out and shoot some bows and see what I like.
    • Thanks MJ   It's nice for the picture and follow up video you catch a lot that gets missed after the picture.
    • i was just there on the 11th of Aug, yea i was way less then impressed with the cave. wont bother me none, but then again that wasthe first time in 5 years i've been in a cabelas.
    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge
    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
