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.

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
    • Bigfatbert
      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it. 
    • leech~~
      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.
