Hey guys as most of you are aware I am a Humminbird guy. I have had a friend ask me which is best detail map for Lowrance and I have no idea. Could some of you help out, might be super helpful if you can post screenshot of say Canyons area for whichever one you are using so we can see the difference?

All help appreciated.
Ken

Hi, not a big deal, but I wonder if you'd get more responses in another forum such as "equipment" or general....

I've been recommended the Navionics + for my HDS Gen3. I just bought one.

The canyons is a big area on Rayburn, made sense to me...

Ken,
I don't think there is anything better than Navionics Platinum + available for Lowrance. I don't have screen shots for you as I run Humminbird as well.

If you want to see the current Navionics maps, they can be viewed on the Navionics website's Chart Viewer. They are current as of yesterday.

Navionics. The only other option would be to get insight and map the whole area with his graph but navionics is pretty dang good

Navionics is your best bet unless you wanna map it yourself.

Thank you for explaining it, having never been to Rayburn it didn’t make any sense.

That's the web app so the zoom levels and shading can be a good bit better on a graph
