GPS


jwmiller33

Question

my step dad told me to do some research and buy a GPS for the fising trip we are going on this weekend. he wants one that you can get info on a certian lake you are going to so you can have a map of the lake with structure and depths and whatnot available to you.

i am trying to find one by looking on the bass pro shops website as well as gander mountains website.. i couldnt find anything on ganders but here are two i found on bass pro shops. would either of these two be sufficient for what im looking for? anybody have any advice on brands or models i should look for or avoid? thanks

Your best choices for mapping are LakeMaster and Navionics map cards, which go in the card reader slot in the gps. The lakes you'll be fishing determine which map card you should get - you want high defintion maps for the lakes you're fishing because those will be most accurate. They show depth contours in 1 foot intervals and are really, really good.

Your best choices for GPS units are the Lowrance iFinder units which use both LakeMaster and Navionics map cards (the H2Oc is the most popular), or select Garmin units which use Garmin LakeMaster Cards in microSD format.

You can check out the gps units and map cards at Pro Fishing Supply.

I would with an H2O or H2Oc (if you want color and a little more clarity) for sure. Contact Perch Herker at Pro Fishing supply and he will hook you up.

One word of advice is to let him know which lake you are hitting so you can make sure it's on the chip.

Another piece of advice is to get the cigarette lighter cord. They eat batteries pretty quickly and you'll be playing with it a lot when you first get it. Be sure to take an hour or so before your trip to set it up and get at least passingly familar on how it works. Once you get past the inital stage of confusion you'll find it about the best tool you have when you start to fish new water.

Another one to look at is the Lowrance XOG. It will take either the Lakemaster chip or Navionics chip. Not as weather resistant as the H2O but it can double for a car/road GPS.

You can check them out at Pro Fishing Supply. Dave is great to deal with, can answer any of your questions, and super fast shipping.

Anyone use a Garmin Nuvi with Lakemaster Pro Maps? According to Lakemap.com, it works but there's some limitations with nothing specifically stated.

      Hello!)  I love playing minecraft.  From early childhood, I understood that this is just the best game, but the game became unrealistic after I installed the super mod https://99minecraft.com/mods/weee-flowers-mod-1-12-2-1-7-10/  !!!!! It will help everyone to make the game more interesting and cool.

      It seems that I have never had problems writing essays. And here it was necessary to write residency personal statement editing. I realized that it would not be possible to cope with such a document, I decided to take the help of professionals and all the problems disappeared.

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves

      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.
