I recently acquired a Lowrance Elite 7 HDI. Anyone know if my Lakemaster chip will work in that locator?

Thanks for the comments. Opened the slot on the Lowrance and saw that the chip needed was a different size. DUH!

If the chip was for Lowrance units it should work. Easiest way is to plug it in and find out.

Lowrance is now selling their own chip.

Johnson Outdoors owns Hummingbird, Lakemaster and Cannon downriggers. Johnson put an end to Lakemaster making chips for other units. The support at Lakemaster should tell you if the chip you have will work too.

Good Luck

I could be wrong but I heard the new Lowrance units have to use a navionics chip.

My 2011 elite 5 still uses a lakemaster chip.

I'm sure the new units are different,hummingbird owns lakemaster I think!
