I just Upgraded from HDS-7 Gen 1...to a HDS-12 Gen 3 w/ LSS-2 T/D
The Gen 3 Units take the Micro Card...I Can't use My Old Bigger Chips.

WHAT Mapping Chips are the Best to get / use for Texas Lakes...
I've got a Old chip that shows: Road Beds, Ponds, Creeks. Can't remember Who makes it...or Where to get a Micro Chip of it.

All You Lowrance Experts / Gu-Ru's out there...
Any and All Info / Suggestions are Appreciated!!!

* IF Anybody has any Good ones to Sell...Please send Me a PM *

ALSO...I'm Needing a New / Used Gimbel Mount for My HDS-12 Unit. Anybody got one they Aren't using?!? Send PM...Thanks!

Thanks again Guys,
Nitro Man / Roger

Other than Platinum, What about the one just under it?
I don't need 3D stuff

I am a Senager. (Senior teenager) I have everything that I wanted as a teenager, only 50 years later. I don't have to go to school or work. I get an allowance every month. I don't have a curfew, I have a drivers license,a PU truck and I have a bass boat. I am blessed.

I don’t know what lakes you fish but check out legends mapping! They have single lake maps and I think they are better!

Check out the Navionics Platinum or the Navionics+ Regions cards. Both have the sonar charts layer, the platinum is $199 and the Regions is $149, the only major difference between the 2 is the Platinum has 3D and Aerial overlay capabilities, if those 2 features do not interest you, then save yourself $50 and go with the Regions card.
