Depth finder/GPS won't fully fead Nav. chips

Question

hitthebricks

I think I might have a problem with my depth finder. It dosn't seem to show much for contours on Rainy. My old Nav. Reg. 10 chip has more contours on it than the new one does. Did they skip Rainy or is my depth finder bad? HTB

How far did you zoom down to? On the Nav. LOTW 1' contour map I had to zoom down to i think 1/8 of a mile screen resolution before the 1' contours showed up. Up to that point it was 5' contours. Try zooming in all the way and see what you get. I will check my 07 chip tonight for Rainy as it should be the same as yours.

huminbird depth finders use a different scale for zooming in than Lowrance does. I have it zoomed in all the way and it only shows general contours, but it does shown 1 ft. contours on most other local lakes. I'm thinking the 07 north doesn't have much for Rainy Lk. and was wondering if anyone knows of any chips that do have better contours. HTB

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
