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?

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 this app on my droid and love it...cannot wait to put it up against my lowrance with the lake master chip and see what is more accurate.!!

Hey LipRipper,

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

Thanks.

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...

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

    • Interesting.    Did you foil both of them?    
    • Very nice DTro! Don't know if you remember me but I used to fish the Mississippi for cats and carp. Congrats on the guiding job. Take care.
    • A couple of weeks ago I put a butt and a brisket on the Louisiana Grill at the same time. They were basically the same weight but the brisket got done about 3-1/2 hours sooner than the brisket.
    • Bruce Jean at Rainy lake Guiding does a great job.   www.rainylakeguiding.com     
    • I was looking at the vikings schedule the rest of the way and I see them with 4 or 5 wins.  Not good enough to watch and enjoy the season and not bad enough to get us the top pick.  Hopefully they find new and innovative ways to lose games they should win and finsih 1-15. 
    • It's truly amazing how social media has transformed our lives.   Seems like not too long ago there was no such thing as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or TikTok.    Where did you go for fishing information, research, brotherhood and fellowship?   You spent a lot of time at bait shops, reading magazines and newspapers, or you dialed up into a fishing discussion bulletin board on the world wide web.   I'm a geek who preferred the electronic version so I spent A LOT of time online reading everything I could on web forums and discussion boards.  I came to find a primary home here with Fishing Minnesota in roughly 2000.   I dove in and met a lot of great fishing and personal friends.  I was provided the opportunity to get involved with the marketing side of fishing and learned quite a bit about the business of fishing.   I've been saddened to see how participation in forums such as this and others I follow, have crashed with the growing popularity of other platforms.   What brings me here though today is to stop by and say hi to all my old fishing friends.  About 4 years ago I started a Catfish/Sturgeon guide service.  It has been growing steadily each year and one of the reoccurring themes I seem to experience is how many of my guests refer to Fishing Minnesota Dot Com and how they came to recognize me and my activity there from years ago.      For several years this site reigned supreme when it came to current fishing news and information and a place where everyone was here to help and became a brotherhood for many.  While there was always some political stuff tossed in, for the most part it was a place to forget about the world and focus on our favorite past time.    Oh how times have changed.....      I hope everyone is doing well and pushing through all the background noise in todays world.  What we are currently experiencing does not bode well for our mental health and I hope things change soon before we find ourselves in another 1863 Gettysburg.   I'll share a great experience I had the other night with a Mother/Daughter captured by Ben Garving (Award winning KARE11 photojournalist).   He really did a great job in capturing what happens when you forget about outside things for a while and spend time with family and just sit back and enjoy our great outdoors.   No matter your political views or your thoughts on our natural resources and how they are managed, this is something we can all come together and embrace.    Take care!   KARE11 Sturgeon Story Click Here            
    • Nah, looks to good for MN to go after.  Even though we’ll need a replacement QB next year, or sooner.
    • The only plus to this season has been Diggswho Jefferson.
    • That is exactly how I felt 3 weeks ago!
