Navionics Canada chip

Recommended Posts

Looking into buying a Navionics chip to use on my upcoming trip to Canada. I will be using it on one of the lakes that is NOT high definition. In particular, I will be on Lake Pakashkan. How is the detail for the lakes that are not high definition? Will I be looking at something like 5' or 10' contour lines or even worse? I sent Navionics an email but havent got a response in several days. Also, does it have map data like rock piles and other hazards? Thanks for your input!

I have the Navionics Upper Midwest Map from 2010 that includes LOTW (including Canadian portion). There is a distinct line on the map when you are out West by the MN border where it goes from 1 ft contours to spot markings for depths on the canadian side. It seems to work pretty good. I found the maps to be accurate in identifying reefs, marker bouys, etc. Not sure if the Canada chip would be different or if it would be different on different lakes?

Finally heard back from a Navionics rep today. I guess most of the lake is in 10' increments but close to shore and islands it goes to 5' increments. However he didn't say if it marked rock piles and other hazards.

    • I did put some runner rugs down the center 😁
    • This team is not going anywhere with  Tom Thibodeau as there coach.  
    • Have to agree great game looked real good definitely more aggressive time will tell.
    • Wisconsin's traditional nine-day gun deer hunting season opens this Saturday and with snow in many northern areas and more in the forecast for Friday into Saturday but with otherwise relatively mild hunting conditions it should make for a good opener.Hunters can find all the information they need by searching the DNR HSOforum for keyword "deer." Or new for this year, hunters with mobile devices can download the Hunt Wild Wisconsin mobile app, which provides mapping, shooting hours and easy access to regulations. Hunters can download the app from the DNR HSOforum at keywords "hunt app."Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park has begun to ice over. Skim and shelf ice is forming on lakes and some smaller lakes have frozen over.Photo credit: DNRThis is the earliest possible opening of the season and while it is winding down in some areas, rutting activity is still noticeable with bucks visiting their scrapes and rubs and still being seen chasing does. A reminder that hunters must register their deer by 5 p.m. the day after recovery and registration is now easier than ever online, by phone or in person at registration stations. Search the DNR HSOforum for "GameReg," for details. Hunters can get a deer tested for CWD at no cost and can find sampling locations by searching for keywords "CWD Sampling." .
    • It looks great! Throw a few nonslip rugs down.  It's Winter after all! 😋
    • I converted mine to 1 ton Reese 12v winch. Seems to work well with my light weight wheel house.  
    • Looks great but cold and slippery, I'm a carpet guy.
    • absolutely 100% yes. Like with the augers though, use a good drill. My Ryobi barely does both sides once on a battery, my Fuel is 1000 times better. It's not recommended to go down with a drill, only up. You'll see all this on Nutz w e b s i t e. 
    • I missed it too, the caps always just own us.
