Get up to $75 with Navionics

Recommended Posts

I have a 10 yr old Hot Maps card. Is there any improvements in the newer cards that would be noticeable. Or do the new cards need a new model plotter.

My current card does not go west to Oak Orchard so I am looking for a better one.

What is the unit that you are running?

i have a Lowrance Globalmap 7500. My current card does show contours about 6 miles to the east of Oak Orchard but changes to just a generic style at the river mouth area.

Rivers are not generally survey. With a unit like yours it's going to be a little more difficult because you need to find a Navionics+ of 2gig size; the newer card are 8 and 16gig.

I meant to say that the lake  contours are not visible out from Oak Orchard river mouth in the lake. I was going to upgrade my GPS plotter unit but I haven't found one that is as easy to operate as my old Globalmap.  I wasn't impressed with the waypoint process on the new Lowrance units but I can't find a Simrad unit to test. I know those two units will connect to my Simrad autopilot. I'm not sure how to connect the other brands..
