H20 with Navionics North Chip

3 posts in this topic

I just recently purchased a H20 with a Navionics north chip, and when in pan mode it sometimes takes a long time (3-5 mins)for the lakes to appear. The names will be there but no lake or contours. Is this normal due to all of the info on the chip?

Do you have the chip activated? Select "advanced mode" from the menu, and once in advanced mode hit "menu" again. Select "map data," then go to "navionics map choice" and choose the region you wish to view. This should get the unit reading the chip, and a small picture of a chip will flash in the bottom right corner of the screen.

A lot of times is you have the wrong region selected you will get the lake names and not show the lakes. Navonics is wierd. I fish 10 Mile lake that is almost in Fergus Falls and it is still under the South MN region. Another problem is if you are zoomed out too far you will not read the lakes. If you are seeing lake names then the chip is running. Do a find and look up Mille Lacs and be on the south mn region. You should see all kinds of detail.

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW
