I may be completely incorrect, but I was reading the descriptions a few weeks back and it seems (among other bells and whistles) that the $159 version included aerial photos of the lakes.

No that is correct... difference are the photos, the mapping system is exactly the same. I just bought 3 off Amazon for $100 apiece (new) with free shipping!

Has anyone downloaded or used the new "basemap" yet? It sounds like it's a free Lakemaster card.

I have. Not the detail of a lakemaster card but a lot better than the standard maps that come with the helix. You will need a 16gb sd card at minimum. The file is roughly 8-9gb. Takes about 25 mins to download and another 20 mins for the graph to update the maps.
