I recently purchased a sportsman's connection cd rom so I could get gps way points then print a map, but when trying to run the darn thing all the letters and words get all streched out, the screen starts to lock up. I've got at least twice the requirements needed to run this thing. Is it possible to have a bad cd? any of you guys tryed this disc?

If you were able to install the software off the CD, you probably don't have a bad CD. Based on what you are saying, you may have a screen resolution issue. Check on the requirements if there is any mention of screen resolution settings. Many applications are developed for a specific monitor resolution setting (e.g. 800x600). You can test this by changing your monitor resolution as follows:

Start->Settings->Control Panel->Display

Click the "Settings" tab

Under the "Screen area" section you can scroll to change the resolution

However, I would recommend registering your software so you can contact their tech support (URL's below). Not only will you be entitled to support, it looks like you also get one major product update for free if you register.

Good luck!

      Nice area to get the yak out in.  One of the smallies wanted to share lunch with me.

      Fished spring park today, tried walleye early with no luck.  Switched to bass and managed to find a few in about 10 feet over weeds.  Caught most of them on a chatterbait

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.
