Lakemaster has three products for each region.

Lakemaster has contour mapping.
Lakemaster Plus has contour mapping and satellite photos.
Lakemaster SmartStrike has contour mapping and fish location prediction software.

The fish location prediction software is very general. It may give you some ideas on an unfamiliar body of water.

If you want to try it out, just purchase a single body of water with the FishSmart App or Chart Select computer software, choose the Contour map and SmartStrike layers and download it to a blank encrypted memory card.
You can also add some satellite photos and see what all three products have.

A Chart Select purchase includes a download to a memory card and a copy to the FishSmart App.

Wayne, thank you so much for all your Help ! Iā€™m leaning toward purchasing a chart select purchase and download to a memory card, do you provide this service? My selection would be Lake Ray Roberts, North Texas & I would need a memory card. Please advise.
