GPS Lake Maps

4 posts in this topic

Does anyone out there know of some good GPS lake map programs that are compatible w/ Garmin GPSmaps 76S? I don't really want to get a different GPS just to get decent lake maps as I really like the options/tools with this GPS for land.

I was just wondering the same thing the other day. I know lowrance has good lake maps, but I like the garmin GPS units better.

anyone know??

I have been looking at various software websites and really have not found anything worthwhile. Garmin has their LakeMaster series that you can get for MN,WI, and MI but it only has contour info on 5' intervals for several lakes in MN--everything else is 10' which is similar to the Sportman's book. Not to mention, zero info for the big lake.

Yeah I have heard through the grapevine that the garmin lake software is kinda lame. I have seen the lowrance maps first hand and they are pretty darn good and have almost every lake.

      You can use the clam plate with the k-drill, they make an adapter. The K-drill recommends a minimum of 725 or 750 for torque, so you almost have to get the higher end drills. The newer Clam has the gear box which will double your torque with a 2:1 gear ratio. You can pick up the conversion box for $70. They had a deal on those at the show last weekend, as well as the K-drill. The K-drill cuts through the ice like butter, if you get the clam plate and conversion box, you should be able to still get double the torque then. So Clam plate $70, plus the Clam conversion box ($70), and add in the K-drill ($215), and I already have a drill. Brings the total up to $355. But don't have to purchase gas or propane or, light weight, no fumes. I will let everyone know how it works out.
