Delorme Mapping Software

3 posts in this topic

I bought my Lowrance iFinder H2Oc for fishing, but with the help of a RAM mount and my Delorme Gazetteer, I am enjoying it almost as much out hunting. I was thinking of how nice it would be to have the Delorme IN my iFinder (especially when wandering in circles chasing ruffies in National Forests, etc), so I started looking around...only to find that I have no idea what I'm looking for.

I have not been able to find any decent mapping of MN hunting lands similar to the Delorme Atlas & Gazetteer, showing shaded state & federal lands, topos, and anything else I need(?). Am I completely missing something here or does it not exist? If it does exist out there, which companies make the maps and do you have to buy a CD or is it available on SD cards like my Lakemaster?

Thanks for your help guys.

Guess I should've started there, eh? confused.gif

Looks like what I'm in need of is the FreedomMaps™ USA Topo. Anyone have these maps for their iFinder? Are they pretty accurate with WMA/WPA/Forest boundaries, etc.? I'd love some feedback from people who have 'em - I want to know it's the real deal before I spend $100 a pop for MN and ND.

Thanks.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
