    Lowrance chips

    Need a good chip for So central LA, pretty much all the marsh areas. Any good ideas?

    if you have the HDS system the absolute best mapping system is the Standard Mapping satellite over lay chips. They are called E-cards. They overlay your base map with a photo just like a navionics platinum plus card would. The maps match the satellite maps sold in sporting goods stores throughout south louisiana with all the same labeling. The gps location on the map is also very accurate (meaning your curser will track over the water and not over the land when running down small canals). I highly recommend these cards for any water in south louisiana.

    No. they have a partial on the verret map but that one is kind of pointless for me. Might get the venice one.. but of course they have it broken down into two different ones like their regular maps

    Yeah looks pretty expensive to get them all. The only ones I would consider are the venice and basin ones if they had a good one and maybe bayou black but I don't see that one either.

    I dont believe the website it up to date with them yet. They are supposted to be in any sporting good store that carries the printed maps. I know Front to Back boat service in baton rouge has them. here are some picture to help you find them. They didnt have all the locations when they first came out but they should have them by now. If they dont have your area on a chip yet you may want to call them and see if they can custom load a card for you.
