Captain Paul - GPS Info in Southeast Louisiana

Chris Ruggiero

I have a Lowrance handheld gps system that requires me to but a chip for fishing maps. Instead of buying a chip, can you use your maps for navigation? If so will it track my progress and store then in the GPS? I need to be able to look at the map in the dark being that im using to get to my duck ponds. Please email me answers to the follwoing questions.

No, Chris, I am sorry, but the CAPTAIN PAULíS FISHING EDGE OF GPS WAYPOINTS are NOT maps. They are WAYPOINTS and in some cases ROUTES which are downloaded into the internal memory of you GPS unit.

The Edge waypoints show up as overlays on whatever mapping program you may have in your unit. YOU MUST have some sort of mapping program approved by the manufacturer of your GPS unit installed in your GPS unit to see the map images on the various screens of your unit.
