New LCX 28c HD!!!

2 posts in this topic

Yes! It has been a good Christmas so far! Especially with my purchase of a brand new LCX 28c HD. I was going to go with the LCX 27 and get the North based Navionics chip for Mille Lacs and Devils Lake. However! This chip was $145, but they told me that for $200 more from the sticker price of the LCX 27, I could bump up to the LCX 28 and have a hard drive that supposedly carries the Navionics (or Fishing Hotspots??) maps for every chip... First of all, can anybody tell me a little more about the LCX 28 and if I'm ok to use the internal maps for Devils Lake and Mille Lacs? Or, do I need to still get the North based Navionics chip for these lakes? I'm new to these sweet electronics so any info would be greatly appreciated.

Also, my buddy and I are hitting Mille Lacs in about 2 to 3 weekends. Can't wait! Good Luck to all.

PS - I've been put on a 3 month job down in STevens Point, WI. I have been doing some eye fishin down there and keepin myself busy. Can't wait to hit Pelican though!

check out the hotspots web site for a list of the lakes in the north package, most are just "Lowrance enhanced" maps, whatever that means. i think where the HD shines is in the memory for waypoints, trails, etc.

      Yeah next week looks good for getting out. Hopefully the snow totals stay on the low side but at least its gonna be the light powder variety.

      Thanks guys.  So just to recap so far, Nils and KDrill require adapters, which add $30 or so, but you can use them w/out the drill plate if you want to.  How about Strikemasters do they need an adapter?     Also, just wondering if there is any legit reason to pay $100 more for the K Drill over the Nils?  Seems to me they are about the same weight (ballpark) and both cut pretty fast.     Thanks again for the info fellas!!
