Lakemaster question

7 posts in this topic

I purchased a lakemaster CD rom last year. I have a Garmin 168 GPS/sonar but it cannot upload/download waypoints.

Also is there an updated/upgrade version that allows me to upload maps on unit ?

I would give them a call. They have always been a big help to me...a fine organization.

I agree with Stick, everytime I've called them they've been extremely helpful

Valv,

I my "prior life" I owned a couple of Garmin GPSMAP168"s as well as a GPSMAP238. You cannot upload/download the Lakemaster maps from the cd-rom to any units, Garmin or otherwise. As for waypoints, they may have a software update that would include the Garmim GPSMAP168 that will allow downloading waypoints from the cd-rom map(s) via your computer to your Garmin unit. If their website isn't clear on this, give Mike or one of his staff a call at Waypoint Technoloies in Little Falls,MN.

Over the years I have moved back and forth between Garmin and Lowrance units. Frankly, with chip technology, Lowrance is the way to go. I know, these Garmin units aren't cheap but that's progress. Don't get me wrong, the Garmin units put out great information, but in discussions at the I-CAST National Tackle Show (that just ended yesterday)with different mapping technology representatives, other campany's abilities to embrace the emerging mapping chip technology is potentially putting Garmin at some disadvantage with a growing number of fishing consumers.

Thanks dockehr, I figured it out already. And I just sold a good Lowrance LMS 240 which would have worked perfect.....

Oh well, I guess I'll get another one soon.....

There are plenty of Garmin Units that work with the Garmin Data Card and Garmin ProMaps CD-ROM where the whole lake map is either displayed (data card) or can be downloaded (CD-ROM) to your Garmin GPS and then the whole lake can be displayed.

Works awesome.

For a list of the Garmin's it works with and lakes available - CLICK HERE for the Garmin CD-ROM and Data Card info and order page.

Rick, I saw that, only problem I have I don't need any of the lakes on that CD, but the lakes I need are not on disc.

I figured out already it is the GPS unit that lacks capability, and it's time to upgrade.... grin.gif

      Made it out last night. Beautiful night. Caught a bunch of Crappies, sunnies, a norsky and a few walleyes. All CR. Amazing how quiet the lake was. I was the only boat out for the most part. First boat in parking lot at 5:30 and no AI inspector this time. Have not seen them for quite awhile now.... Water temp was 78. Panfish were caught on simple Jig/plastic in about 12 feet along shoreline weeds. Walleyes on spinner/crawlers in 17-20 on midlake structure.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick
