Navionics HotMaps Platinum Multi-Dimensional Lake Maps
I purchased the navionics Platinum chip for my hand held Lowrance Endura for ice fishing because the HD maps have the 3 lakes I fish the most on it. I've checked it against my Marcum flasher and the depths are pretty accurate. I went to a mud flat on 1 lake and the depths on the chip matched what the flasher recorded. I recently took a 31" 10# walleye which I credit to the chip. The only drawback is in order to mark a waypoint you have to back out of the navionics charts to your regular gps, shouldn't be that way. Enclosed is a picture.

Lots of information
I BOUGHT BOTH THE EAST AND SOUTH GREAT FOR FINDING THE GOOD SPOTS A LITTLE TOO MUCH AS FAR AS COST, BUT HAD TO HAVE THEM BOTH FOR FISHING ALABAMA/MS.

not what I was expecting
For something that costs as much as this card did I have to say Im not impressed.
I took the card out of the package and immediately put it in my computer to update it. It gives me an error message that says "sorry your chip doesnt have enough free space".
Next I install it in my graph. No real problems there other than its supposed to have 3D view and it doesn't or if it does I cant figure out how to make it show up.
It would have been nice to have gotten some kind of instructions with it but I guess they thought everyone would just figure it out..
The detail is good. Ill give em credit for that.

Worst support I have ever experienced!
I purchased this just to get the 3D imagery and it simply will not work! I called Navionics support and they were evasive and made every attempt to NOT help me. If you ever get them on the phone they do everything possible to get you OFF the phone and refuse to call you back if you leave a message. they only communicate via email and it takes several days to get a respond to any question. I finally gave up trying. DO NOT BUY ANY PRODUCT FROM NAVIONICS!
