Question about Lowrance MapCreate 6 and MapCreate TOPO CDs GPS Receiver
I'm having difficulty installing MapCreate 6.3 (Canadian Version) on my laptop running Windows 7. Is there something different that I need to do?
I originally installed the software on a laptop running Windows Vista. The local supplier provided me with step-by-step instructions on how to install it in compatibility mode as Windows XP (sp2) and it worked just fine. Unfortunately, my laptop was stolen and I have purchased a new one which runs Windows 7. I tried installing the software on Windows 7 and although it appeared to install properly I recieved an error when I tried to run it. I then uninstalled it and tried installing it using the instructions to install it in compatibility mode as Windows XP (sp2). Again it appeared to install properly but generated an error when I tried to run it. I have uninstalled it again.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

There is an update for MapCreate to work with VISTA. Go to http://www.lowrance.com/en/Downloads/Product-Software-Updates/MapCreate-7-Windows-Vista-Update/ to download.
The ENHANCED LAKE MAPS are already built into MapCreate 7 so if you can get it working with VISTA with the update, you may have what you need.
MapCreate is mostly land based mapping so may not do much good on thewater.
The Enhanced lake mapes are only on certain lakes.
Go to http://www.lowrance.com/en/Products/Mapping/Enhanced-Lake-Maps/Downloads/ for a list of available lakes.
These Enhanced Lake Maps have depth contours but are not as good as Navionics, or Fishing Hot Spots, or LakeMaster charts.
Go to http://www.lowrance.com/en/Products/Mapping/ to see mapping options.
If you can get MapCreate 7 working on your computer, try it out. If you decide you need better mapping you can always get a better mapping card later.
