I don't believe you can download Mapcreate from Lowrance, you have to buy the CD from a vendor I think....your not talking the 6.2 or 6.3 upgrade are you.

What are you looking to do with Mapcreate...?

I am talking about the map create 6 with the two CD's I want to get the expanded base maps of Minn, ND,SD,WI, and IA. and maybe mess around making some maps. I have the CD's but don't have the instructions to download or use them. I am thinking this is over my head.

The MapCreate I got last winter, version 6.0 I think, had 6 CDs. Put CD #1 in and follow the on-screen directions.

Sounds like maybe I don't have the whole set. I got them from a guy at work he said he never used them. Can anyone else confirm there are more that 2 CD's to the map create.

thanks

Mine is a 2 disk set also. I wonder if the difference is the topo and non-topo maps?

The two set CD version is an older version. The latest version is 6 CD's and costs about $100.00.

There is much more info and detail on the 6CD set.

The latest version is 6.3

Well I messed around with it and got it to work. I have the 2 CD set....how much more detail is on the 6.3 are the maps topo? Also is there a way I can get the indidvidual maps on my comp. screen. What I want to do is make a map of an area and print it out. Maybe its over my head????

I don't know what scale the 6 CD set goes to. It has 6 CDs for 6 regions of the US: northwest, southwest, north central, south central, north east and south east. You can make custom maps with user selectable amounts of detail. You can print these out or download them to a sd card and use them in a Lowrance GPS. You choose the area you want. If you are going on a car trip, you can make a map of the freeway corridor you are driving that has points of interests (gas, food, rest stops, etc.).

2 cd sets are non-topo maps.

6 cd sets are topo maps.

Otherwise scale is the same on both.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
