Looking for a GPS so you can put a lake map chip in it? Do you have a smartphone?
If you happen to own a smartphone on the list from this page (http://www.navionics.com/MobileMarineFeatures.asp?MobileType=Android), you can purchase a Navionics app that will give you tons of lake maps for the defined area. Your phone can utilize triangulation to act as a GPS and you can use it out on the lake to put yourself in great fishing spots.
If you don’t get any cell phone reception for areas you fish, you may not be interested in this. But for anywhere you do get reception, you really need to consider this. At $10 for the U.S. and $15 for U.S. and Canada, this can be a great money saver for you. Consider buying a $150-$400 GPS and then a $100 lake chip for it. For a small fraction of that cost, you can use a device you already own.
Hope you enjoy the tip. Do you have helpful information for the Navionics apps? Leave a comment below or sign up to the forums!
