    New to Rays and I need a chip!!

    I'm looking for info on the best chips to buy for Raymarine graphs. I've heard great things about the units but I don't have the right chips in them. The ones in it are for South La. Doesn't show Toledo Bend or Sam rayburn etc... hardly at all... Point me in the right direction, thanks! [AXIOM]

    You can go to the Navionics website and take a look at the Webb App to make sure that the chart will show what you want. I have been happy with the Navionics+.

    Anyone know if the navionics Lowrance chips also work with RM interchangeably? Thinking about a change to RM and have several chips.

    There hasn't been a Lowrance Navionics map card since before 2005. All since then work in most models. The only current difference now is the card size. Some units use a CF card the rest use a SD or the current microSD with or without a SD adapter.

    Do the new RM Axiom models utilize the micro sd or micro with the adapter cards . That's what i have. Pardon my ignorance. Just want to understand if all new cards will be required. Thanks!

    Thanks! I think you answered my question when you noted navionics hasn't made a chip specifically for Lowrance since 2005.
