h20 ifinder Question

7 posts in this topic

If I run my IFinder without the chip, and then put the chip in it will it still have the trail lines? and if I Save way points without the chip will they show up when I insert the chip or do I have to do it all over again. I have the chip in my permanent 520c, and when I fish with somebody else in there boat I like to take my I finder but didn't transfer the chip so I was curious if the Waypoints would show up along with the trails travelled. Thanks.

Muskiebait, the way points and trails are saved on the GPS, not the chip.

You can transfer all your saved trails and way points from one GPS to the other very easily. I did this, and have the same 2 units as you.

I used the SD (or MCC) card from my digital camera and saved the files from my i-finder. Then I placed the SD card in my 520c and imported it. Worked great. Now that I think of it, I bet I could save the files on my computer as a backup?

Don't try to save anything to your Lake map chip though, you may lose that data!

I don't have my i-finder here or I would give you the how-to, but these units are so user friendly you can figure it out.

Post any questions you have here, as I know someone can help you out.

Hope that helps. wink.gif

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.

      I scored an ice armor extreme black and orange jacket for $140, lots of new jigs with free shirts and hats as incentives. Crowds were insane, easily the largest I have seen in many years of attendance. Had a great time though. Ice is inevitable, but my patience is not my strongest virtue
