the Lakemaster map is fantastic.......it has one foot contours. i've only looked at the paper map but my card is in my po box as we speak. besides the paper map and card they also have a CD so you can create your own maps, also there are 62 other ND lakes as well as SD lakes included. if you are interested email me as i'm set up as a dealer. I'll be in devils lake thursday thru sunday for the trap attack..... email address is rkresner@yahoo.com.

buster,
You are right,I've got Megellan... The last time I talked to John Woods he said they could'nt work a deal out with megellan,just Garmin and lowrance.

I sure like the lakemaster program,been using it for the last(3)years for MN and the Dak's,handy tool.For some reason the pro's like the Navionics card better,not sure why?I'll do some snooping.

I've got the CD for the Dakota's(lakemaster) as well but the maps are older but still useful to plan trips to new location's.Pretty cool to upload your way points from your computer to your gps.

Lakemaster does not have the mapcard for lowrance however.You need to go with "Navionics" again at most cablea's and scheel's or direct www.navionics.com.800-848-5896.Next day service.

Eyebuster, I would be very interested in an MMC card for Devils Lake, I would like to know what data is there first though, and how current the data is. Are there deapth contours, rockpiles, nav hazards? If you don't want to put it here E-mail me @ cahabbott@yahoo.com

This moment is a paradox, it's the oldest you've ever been as well as the youngest you'll ever be.

Well here is more info,lakemaster has the most current data on DL,even navionics is out dated with the changes in water depth's,look at the pro pointer,they are really off.

The PWT guys use navionics because they sponsor them(free)and also because they cover so many different lakes across the country,not just the upper midwest(like lakemaster)So if a guy was serious about DL,not only for this weekend's attack but just in general get the map,the reel bottom run's around $20(PAPER) and the c/d is a guess but for the one's I've purchased they run $100 plus a mail in rebate or if you purchase a second "region's" map you'll get a discount as well.

Goodluck!

walleyewheeler,

I will forward your question to someone who can help. I suppose that is me now but being a little green with that sort of stuff I better ask before I screw something up in the admin! Thanks for your support and I think you will like the maps!

Hey walleyewheeler!
Hope things are well! sounds like things are heating up huh? Be safe.
Hey,this program can be bought for less money through a retail outlet,Reed's Sporting goods in Walker,MN for one,I'm sure cabela's and scheels will be competitive.The most effective way to use this program is to down load it on your comoputer,in fact I've got the programs on my PC at work and on my laptop for traveling.

What you do is plan/plot waypoints where you plan to fish on your PC,every place you put your cursor you get waypoint reading's on the lower left part of your screen,you can lock into a waypoint by placing a marker,input note's like water temp,time of day,what kind of bait used etc.

Then you upload your waypoints to your gps via USL cable.You don't need to fit the whole map into your gps,you just need to get a hand held unit with a USL capability and the units with added memory chips capabilities is a plus but more expensive so you make the call on how you plan to use your unit.

One more thing,if you have a laptop you hookup the gps to it(icefishing) and just like an LCD display on your boat you get real time travel as you head across the ice,you can watch yourself head to that little inside turn on the flat's or that sunken hump in the middle of nowhere.

Goodluck!

wheeler,
Remember the DL map is the most current and took two summer's to create and it is also in (1)foot increments.
