Yes I know that what keeps my giving by CAPTAIN PAUL’S GPS, THE BASICS SEMINARS. The manufacturer’s owners manual simply does not offer the detailed instructions that a novice GPS user needs in order to adequately operate the GPS unit.
I try to hold several such instruction seminars a year, but health problems have prohibited me from recently having or planning one this year. I plan to have one early next year. If you are interested, watch this site for a time and date on such seminars. They are usually held on a Saturday morning and run 4 to 5 hours into the early afternoon hours. I request that GPS users bring a spare power cable for their unit in order to power up the devices during the classroom exercises. For home use you can get the Lowrance AC~CAF unit that converts AC120 volt wall socket power to 12 volt DC with a female cigarette socket.
I don’t believe that the HOT SPOTS offer the type of maps needed for fishing any of the coastal Louisiana marshes. I suggest that you first consider the Lowrance INSIGHT HD & PRO mapping. It is a combo map that used marine charts AND topographical maps to make up a very good rendition of the actual topographical features in the march areas.
Go to a stocking dealer and actually view the maps that are available for your unit. When doing so, pick out one of your fishing locations and zoom in on a particular location. This investigation will allow you to make an intelligent choice in mapping for your unit.
