    Lowrance HDS Chip questons
from Getthenet #9894

Rated:

 Just got a new boat with a Lowrance HDS 8 on the console and an HDS 5 on the bow. My question is regarding the best chip to buy as Lowrance Insight was not included. The base map is lacking, so I used my old Lowrance chip and have good detail but I think I can do better. None of the Navonics chips cover my area, but, I saw a video on youtube that stated that using an update from Lowrance along with a Navonics chip will allow you to add satelle image overlays. If this is true, do the satelle image overlays only work with areas that the Navonics chips cover (I am in South Louisiana)? Should I buy the Lowrance Insight? Any help, suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

   Looking for my red letters from Getthenet #9894  9/21/2011 1:46:30 PM

   need specific locations from Todd Driscoll  9/22/2011 9:29:26 AM
 If you can provide general GPS coordinates of the waters you fish, I can look and see what specific mapping coverages are provided by the Insight HD cards. I also have 2010 Navionics Premium cards so I can check the mapping on those as well. The satelite images you are referring to are on Navionics Platinum cards - maybe someone else can report what those cards provide for your locations.


   Thanks Todd - General Lat and Long from Getthenet #9894  9/22/2011 10:16:02 AM
 It is a large area, that thanks to BASS and FLW is now know nationally as the Louisiana Delta. General cordinates on a north/south range are:


Northern Boundry:
Lat 30 degrees 22' North
Lon 91 degress 36' West


Southern Boundry
Lat 29 degrees 26' North
Lon 91 degress 15' West

 Navionics Platinum would be your only other choice!!!!


Todd is correct. I would check with other people around your area and see what they are happy with.
