MapSend Topo software

Question

Guest

If anyone has the Magellan MapSend topo CD for Magellan GPS's, I understand through reading descriptions of the product that it has topo of all land features, but does it also have topo for lakes?(ie. humps on the lake floor, or sudden drop offs) I want to buy the product but only if it shows features under the surface of the water.
Thanks
Kurt

I just purchased the 32MB chip yesterday to down load some of the Topo info. I will probably play around with it tomorrow and see how it works.

Well I messed with this thing for several hours over the past two days.
I have a Magellan Meridian Platinum. I tried the "Mapsend Topo Program" $99.00, The "32MB SD Memory Ship" $84.00 and hours of time.
I am no better off today then I was befoer I installed it. I was told it had all the info that a Gazetteer Atlas in and much more. I could careless about any city maps and major highways. I have regular maps for that. It does not show boat landings,(gazetteer does)
It does not show any Topo info for any lakes at all. In Southwest Minnesota there is not enough elevation change that makes any difference. Maybe I am just an idiot when it comes to running this program, but I am disappointed so far. $180 down the drain!!!!!
If anyone has any advice I'd be happy to listen.

S.D.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
