lakemaster program accuracy


Recommended Posts

It really depends on the lake your talking about. Both the LakeMaster and Navionics chips can be VERY accurate, but only on the lakes that are HighDeffintion and or ReelBottom lakes. The other lakes are just DNR downloaded lakes, and can be way off. It also has a lot to do with the weather too on how accurate your GPS is that day.. can change from hour to hour..

The DNR maps are a good start, but you need real world coords for found structure or a familiarity with the specific lake to really find it again. There is also the location of available satellites up above, how close you are to the southern edge of the lake and if the southern shoreline is wooded or has a high ridge. If you have 5 satellite locked, but they are all almost on top of you your error window won't be as small as if they were spread out over the sky. I would never guarantee better than +/- 50' and it can be less, but that is a small piece of water comparitively to the overall lake. Get out and play with it, and enjoy getting to know it, don't get frustrated. The more you use it and understand it, the more you will be able to trust it and use it as a tool.

Unless you bought the vista cx you are real limited as the info you can put in it. To my knowledge just the US recreational lakes by garmin is all that is available if you have the Vista.

If you truly want a choice in the matter I would suggest taking the vista back and getting an Ifinder as garmin does not support Navionics.

If you get a garmin that has the removable chip then you can get the lakemaster chip for it but that is it.

I have the 60csx and love it but with the new Navionics chip available I think the H2O c is in the works and possibly a sale on some used gear. shocked.gif

That's a nice unit but it depends on how much coverage you want. Why Garmin quit supporting Navionics is beyond me.

If you are going to use it a lot for fishing then I would seriously check out the Navionics chip. I don't see how you can go wrong with all that coverage on one chip. I have the lakemaster chip for garmin and like it but it just does not cover some of the lakes I go to where navionics does.

    • Luxury RV camping has become increasingly popular in recent years as people look for ways to enjoy the great outdoors while still enjoying the comforts of home. With the right equipment and preparation, luxury RV camping can be a truly unforgettable experience. In this essay, we will provide you with the ultimate guide to luxury RV camping, including tips on choosing the right RV, selecting the best campsite, and packing for your trip.   The first step to planning a luxury RV camping trip is to choose the right RV. There are a variety of different types of RVs available, ranging from small and compact trailers to large and luxurious motorhomes. The right RV for you will depend on your budget, your travel plans, and your personal preferences.   One popular option for luxury RV camping is a Class A motorhome. These motorhomes are typically the largest and most luxurious RVs available, with spacious interiors, full kitchens, and even multiple bathrooms. They often come equipped with high-end features such as leather upholstery, flat-screen televisions, and high-quality audio systems. Class A motorhomes are also the most expensive type of RV, but they offer the ultimate in comfort and luxury.   Another popular option for luxury RV camping is a fifth wheel trailer. These trailers are typically larger than travel trailers and are designed to be towed by a pickup truck. They offer many of the same amenities as Class A motorhomes, including full kitchens, multiple bathrooms, and high-end features such as surround sound systems and flat-screen televisions. Fifth wheel trailers are often less expensive than Class A motorhomes but still offer a high level of comfort and luxury.   Once you have chosen the right RV for your luxury camping trip, the next step is to select the perfect campsite. There are a variety of different types of campsites available, ranging from basic, no-frills campsites to high-end RV resorts with all the amenities. When selecting a campsite, it is important to consider your budget, your travel plans, and your personal preferences.   If you are looking for a truly luxurious camping experience, consider staying at an RV resort. These resorts often offer a wide range of amenities, including swimming pools, hot tubs, fitness centers, and even golf courses. They also typically offer high-end services such as concierge service, valet parking, and room service. RV resorts can be expensive, but they offer the ultimate in luxury and comfort.   If you are looking for a more affordable camping experience, consider staying at a state or national park. These parks offer a variety of different campsites, ranging from basic tent sites to RV sites with electrical and water hookups. While state and national parks may not offer the same level of luxury as RV resorts, they do offer the opportunity to experience the natural beauty of the outdoors.     Once you have chosen the perfect RV and campsite, the final step is to pack for your luxury camping trip. When packing for a luxury RV camping trip, it is important to focus on comfort and convenience. Pack clothing that is appropriate for the weather and activities you have planned, as well as comfortable shoes for hiking and exploring.   In addition to clothing, it is important to pack all the essentials you will need for your trip. This includes bedding, towels, toiletries, and any medications or other personal items you may need. It is also important to pack food and drinks, as well as any cooking supplies you will need for meals. If you are camping in the cold weather, bring the Ocoopa Union 5s rechargeable hand warmers are easy to use for camping. First, charge it, then turn it on, and finally, place it in your gloves or pockets. Additionally, the rechargeable hand warmer has 4 heat settings, allowing you to adjust the temperature to various weather conditions. With a large 10000mAh battery, it can provide up to 15 hours of heat and could use as a power bank, making it an ideal hand warmer for extended outdoor activities.   Finally, when packing for your luxury RV camping trip, don’t forget to pack entertainment options such as books, movies, and games. While luxury camping offers many opportunities for relaxation and outdoor activities, it is also important to have options for downtime and relaxation.
