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.

      still love my setup for bluegills but not the best when I use a size 10 jig and fishin for crappies. I might grab the clam springs and rig a rod up with the wire thats a little stiffer and see how it works. this would just be for deep fish.

      Out Sunday ... Looked like a City of Trucks and Castles ... Bite was slow but managed a few Crappies / sonnies on Plastics.   we lost a nice walleye near the hole on a moon jig and crappie minnow.   Might have to go Perching in the shallows on south side of MilLacs this weekend.  Hey Moose ... what ya using for Perch on Millacs shallows 12-18 FOW?

      Was out after work for a couple hours yesterday and got two walleyes to bite. The Landing is getting flooded out. Was kinda hesitant on driving out after seeing all the trucks parking on Shore and taking the long walk out. With all the black ice out there it was a little spooky but after seeing 17" to 19"of good ice  was pretty comfortable with it

      I will be interested to hear of your experience.  Please let us know.    I think the anecdotal evidence was that the service and quality was not up to the premium price, although that could be old news.     "fine dining" has been a tough sell on the lake.   Several places have tried and failed that I am aware of.

      Only fishing for crappies. With a baby at home only get a few hours after work to fish.
