Anyone have a recommendation for a map card for my Garmin echo map? And does bass pro or cablas sell them?

I had a hot maps in my lowrance and liked it. But my Garmin is a micro SD I think and this thing is a regular SD that I had in my lowrance. I know there's a different section but this section gets more views

Thanks for your help

About the only option is to go with the LakeVu HD or the LakeVu HD Ultra. The contour lines on the Garmin HD mapping is great. You can also add Fishing Hot Spots Pro to give the mapping more detail (road beds, creek channels, and such). I'm actually about to add the Hot Spots to mine.

That's what I'm looking for. It has lake vu already on it, and i love the contour lines it shows, however I really need to be able to see the creek and river channels, I follow them a lot this time of year, and it doesn't show them at all.

Is that fishing hot spots pro a sd card?

Thats what I did and it's great. You buy the hot spots online and download to your on sd card. It has to stay in the slot to work.

Also use the color shading for your depths. You will see a lot of deep humps and drop offs.

You can order it through Garmin and get it on an SD card or order it as a download if you already have an SD card you're using in your unit.

Does the Hotspots work with LakeVu? seems I read it only works with the HD or Ultra.

So I can go to Walmart and buy a blank 16gb or larger micro sd and down load it correct? My
Lap top accepts the regular sd so I guess I have to use the adapter in my lap top

Go to charts the to navigation charts and the hit menu. Once there go to chart setup hit it and the chart appearance will go up. You will see depth shading. You can shape up to 10 different colors from a range of depths. Make sure you are up to date on your software
