Lakemaster question

Recommended Posts

Valv

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.

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

      Nice Job Jeff. Love the secret potion you know how scent can play a key role in the bite.    Wow some good prizes for this years event. People come on out and join the fun. We all will do are best to help you ice a few cats, maybe even your first. 
    • IceHawk
      Those are some dandies . The eye bite has been a little rough lately.  What worked to put those two nice ones topside?

      First off welcome to the site and thanks for posting. Not sure about a road plowed on Woman but broad water and lantern bay are good  places to find panfish on that lake. More than likely there will be a truck trail to both as they are pretty popular spots. Good luck

      Fishing as Good Friday night then Saturday not so much. Pictures from Friday, none from Saturday because everyone knows what one 5” perch looks like.

      Was on Green by Chisago with my daughter who is 6. Like others, we marked a lot of fish but getting them to bite wasn’t easy. Did catch a fair number of bluegills and crappies but really had to coax them into biting. The bite did pick up a little as it got closer to dark though. We stayed out until about 6:30pm. My daughter didn’t want to leave but I was out of propane for my heater so it was getting a little cold so we left. Everything was mostly small but did catch a couple of decent sized crappies. Ice is thick and you could pretty much drive anywhere with 4WD. Fun time with the kid and she’s hooked on it. Already asking to go again.

      First timer checking in. My folks bought a place on Child/Boy River. Looking forward to spending more time in the area. Wondering if anyone knows if there are roads plowed on Woman Lake? Was hoping to try and catch an evening/morning bite this week. Thanks
    • Borch
      Looking forward to it.  Here are some more prizes.
