Question about Lowrance 108-208 FISHING HOT SPOTS PRO MAPS Maps Software
How to Use Lowrance Fishing Hot Spots
Lowrance Hot Spots are memory cards containing fishing information on the lakes
and waterways of the United States. Cards are available for four different regions
including the Northern, Southern, Eastern and Western states. Cards are available
that contain all four regions. Information on the Hot Spot cards includes depth contours,
Lowrance's MapCreate Series-7 urban and rural land and water detail including roads,
highways and searchable points of interest.
The Hot Spot cards are designed to be used with Lowrance GPS and fish finders.
Things You’ll Need:
* Lowrance Hot Spots SMC Maps
* Lowrance Fish Finder
Insert the Hot Spot Cards
Look on your Lowrance fish finder for the SD Memory Card slot. Locations vary on model and make. Consult the user manual of your model should you not know where to look. Insert the Hot Spot card into the SD slot. Turn on the unit and wait for the display to come up.
Locate the lake and area you are fishing and press the location button. Watch as this brings up a detailed map of your lake. Check to see the GPS function of your unit is receiving signals from satellites. Let the unit sync the GPS satellite information with the maps by waiting until the unit reads "receiving."
Read the depth contours of the lake bottom. Search for fish with the detailed maps and GPS signals, and with the sonar signals from the transducer coming into the fish finder. Look for deep pockets on the depth contours along the shores or vegetation of the lake to locate fish.
Calibrate the GPS/fish finder to the same datum as a paper map if you are using a combination. Lowrance Hot Spots use NAD27 datum. Consult your GPS fish finder manual on how to set your unit's datum to mesh with the Hot Spot.
Keep a printed copy of the legend of the Hot Spots next to the display of the GPS/fish finder. Consult the legend
when new displays are on the map display screen.
Tips & Warnings
Print or laminate a copy of the legend from the Hot Spots. Keep this next to the display screen to consult when fishing and using the Hot Spot maps.

Typically the "Hot Spots" are the ones you find and set into the unit. Once set you can retrieve the hot spots and go directly to the position indicated.
Consider if 1000 of these units were sold and were used at 1000 different locations and each location had 100 hot spots, the unit would need to display (i) 100,000 times.
