NAVIONICS vs. LAKEMASTER(the real deal)
Florida, we stayed at eagle lake lodge. Had a great time but did not get my 50 inch bucket list musky.
I am in the same boat with you. I was at Eagle Lake from August 3rd-9th stayed at north shore lodge. yes the navionics chip was a piece of garbage. BUT we could have recorded our tracks and uploaded to navionics then they would update the map. I wasnt happy with it but at least gave me a map to work with for navigation around the lake. I did manage to find some good spots marked them on the graph. One bait shop in Dryden had some lakemaster products but wasnt expecting them in a few weeks. what lodge did you stay at? the ruls for that lake also sucks seems like it's own by a bunch of democrats. no booze, one rod, no night fishing.
I had a couple LakeMaster chips for Lowrance units and found the detail to meet my needs.
If you have a Hummingbird unit LakeMaster is a good chip provided the lake(s) you fish are on their chip. LakeMaster upgraded their chip detail every year so the newer chips will have the highest detail but a chip only holds so much memory and some lakes are removed from a chip as the details on some lakes improve. So know what lakes you're going to fish and then contact LakeMaster about the chip you need.
pretty cool though... not sure I can afford to keep up with all this high tech stuff... want is going to have to be wish with the economy today
