Which Navionics, Lakemaster, or other brand chip, have you guys found to be the best one to get and use? Most accurate, most detail, etc? I'm using a Lowrance Gen 2 touchscreen unit, (probably doesn't matter)?

I run both. I like both and they are a little different. I'm no help

Lakemaster for the bow and Navionics for the helm.

Lakemaster is for birds so that will narrow your selection somewhat.

Yep this one. I have this one in my Lowrance Elite 7ti and it works great. Lots of detail and free upgrades for 1 year.

The best is insight genesis because you make your own maps, not the easiest or quickest option. The next and only option is Navionics. Lakemaster no longer works in Lowrance graphs.

This can be easily solved by checking out the mapping available from each, like said above, the Lakemaster card only works in HB units, but to see the mapping available from Navionics on the lakes you fish check out the free webapp.

http://webapp.navionics.com/#boating@6&key=omvvDnjx%7DP

Be sure to zoom in and also hit the button on the left hand corner and be sure to check out the Sonar Chart layer for the areas you fish as well. It is the layer that stores all of the user recordings that are submitted to help better the mapping in numerous areas around the country.

You don't have many options. Lake master is only for Humminbird so unless you change brands its navionics. Humminbird can use both
