For Trade Navionics+ Map Card For Lakemaster NE Card

Recommended Posts

I bought this Navionics+ Regions East map card last summer. I never use it because I prefer my Lakemaster card. It works as it should, and maybe my old Gen 2 HDS8 is the reason it doesn't show the detail that my Lakemaster card shows. So, I'm looking to trade my Navionics Map card for a Lakemaster Northeast card. My Navionics card is a mini SD card inside a standard SD card adapter. It comes in the original hard case with a Navionics thumb drive. I've never used the thumb drive so I don't know what is on it. I last updated the card in June. I'm located in the Watertown, NY area and I prefer a face to face trade.

I'll have to check other web sites like eBay and see what a used card is worth. I'm not talking about those price gouging sellers with unrealistic prices, but something reasonable.

You are to use the thumb drive to update the card. There should be a slot on the side of the drive for the card. New, not registered cards of the + can go up to $150.00. New, but registered, are going for under $100.00 only because you can no longer get the free updates for a year. Going by when it was registered.

Thanks. My laptop has an SD card slot that I used for the updates, by inserting the card directly into the laptop.

 

It might just be my HDS 8 unit's lack of features, but I never noticed anything useful after the updates. I got the card to show me bottom contours, hazards, and navigational aids. It showed all that stuff just fine, and it seemed like none of that information changed after the updates. I think the newer Lowrance units can squeeze more information from this card than my old HDS.

Not sure about the unit, I have the chirp 7 and I just don't like my plus chip. Updates are mostly what other people load onto the site. Can't get the chip to stop reading in phathoms.  Seems it was loaded that way.  Will look for something else next season.

I haven't seen mine read in fathoms. Havent had any issues with my + Regions card at all. I bought it to run side by side with my Lakemaster chip for comparison purpises, but my personal preference is that Lakemaster fits me better.

I'll put it in my Humminbird tomorrow and let you know. I'll take a screen shot of any area you want to see and I'll post it here so you can see what it looks like. What are would you want to see a screen shot of?

I have a chip in mine now. But it doesn't show anything in great detail.

It works in my Humminbird 1198c SI unit. I took a screen shot of I-Bay this morning. I just finished working on my 4 wheeler and just saw your post for Oswego. I can take a pic of Oswego if you'd like, just for comparison sake. But another LOU member made me a good offer by PM, and I'm getting ready to PM him back.

For whatever reason, the map details and depth contours are MUCH better on the Finger Lakes and Oneida Lake than they are on Lake Ontario. For example, it shows 1ft depth contours on Oneida Lake, and similar contours on the Finger Lakes.

I don't know if they are feet & inches, or what. I wish they put as much detail into their Lake Ontario chip as they put into their Oneida and Finger Lakes chips.
