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
