Rated 3 out of 5 by fbvrs 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.

I'm some what disappointed. I thought the 3D would be in much more detail. Don't get me wrong, it definitely lets you see more than you would be able to see otherwise, but I guess I was expecting more. If it were $100.00 and not $200.00 I would be more pleased. A two hundred dollar chip should provide more detail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gahunter01 Unbelievable detail
great product to use with your HDS unit. Detail is amazing. My only disappointment is with Navionics. The lake I normally fish, Allatoona is not fully charted. The upper end of the lake just shows dry ground. I understand that not all lakes can be fully charted with high detail, but at a minimum, they would chart what is water and what is land. Lake Allatoona had an estimated 6 million visitors in 2011 and ranks in the top 5 of the Corps of Engineers water projects. I don't see why Navionics wouldn't fully chart the lake.

No, this chip features 1000 HD lakes plus 15,000 lake maps with general features. For Coastal Marine you will need the Gold chip or the Marine & Lakes USA Electronic Marine Charts for Chartplotters. Thanks
The Navionics® HotMaps® Platinum Multi-Dimensional includes maps for Lake (inland) and the Platinum+ Multi-Dimensional Electronic are fore Marine Charts (coastal). The Platinum plus can be found through item number 38-532-733-00. Thanks
