Navionics chip problem

4 posts in this topic

I just purchased the 2006 premium for MN. I have a IFinder color. I install the chip in the unit and I can't get the thing to work. I also have a Lakemaster chip and that works fine. Is there something I am missing with Navionics? The chip is brand new from the store just out of the package. Any hints or ideas, did I get a bad chip?

Thanks for any help.

You have to select the region with the Navionics chip the Navionic chips break down MN in 4 seperate regions, unlike your Lakemaster chip which is plug and play for the most part.

Put the chip in, turn on unit, push menu, scroll down to map data, hit enter, scroll down to Navionics map choice, hit enter, scroll through the regions -nmn, nemn, etc...leave it on the one you want and exit out.

Navionics is a large chip with a lot more data than Lakemaster so they have to separate it into regions. You have to be in the right region to get the Lake you want in HD....If your in the wrong region the lake will be all blue with no depth separation.

      Day two was a bit different than day one for us.  Much slower mid day resulting 50 fish for the day.  A couple of 23" being the biggest.    ESE wind caused a different approach Today that challenged me a bit.  As well as the river was VERY BUSY today!   Water conditions appeared to stay fantastic as far as current and clarity,  should be a nice week ahead for those coming up.

      Buddy of mine just drove past the Big and Littlefork rivers on hwy11, said ice bank to bank on both. Even saw fresh tracks from snowmobiles on them. So for whatever that's worth guys and gals.

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.
