Has anyone on here used this product? I would just like to know how reliable it would be for using on a new lake (new lake to me). Of course caution would still be used by not running wide open all the time but it would be nice to comfortably navigate. Thanks!

Yes, it's very reliable, but if the area seems dangerous I would idle.

Great for Rayburn and fork IMO toledo is more sketchy. As stated above its a good tool if anything looks dangerous idle. Its pretty hard to follow a red line on your GPS while your running on plane especially if your new to running that lane. So slow down if you need to and stay safe

Thanks guys, that is what I was hoping to hear. I would definitely take it slow it it looked too sketchy. So worth the money at least?

Navionics had a version with the Sam Rayburn North Cut boat lane from 147 to Hanks Creek Park off "target" to the west by 100yds, out in the timber and stumps. I am not sure if they have updated it on some of the newer versions.

I used Lance Vick's Boat Lanes on Rayburn last week, never hit a thing.

I use it on Fork and haven't had any issues. Just go slow and use caution if it's your first time running a lane.

You bet, you can download the lake on an sd card and then upload it on your graph, well you probably can, I had to get one of my office girls to do mine.

There's at least two discussions on TFF about how to get it on your graph.

The Navionics boat lane is still about 150 yds. off. I ran it this past weekend. When I knew it was wrong I shutdown, switched to the Lowrance Insight map and it showed the correct location. Idled over, got on plane with no issues. I got my Navionics Platinum chip about 8 months ago. I may need to see if it has been updated online or not.
