I recently purchased the Navionics Hotmaps Premium 07 to load into my Humminbird 595c. I bought the Canada Edition from Cabelas. On Cabelas website it had a link to find out what lakes were included. It showed Gull Lake in Ontario. I am unable to locate any of these lakes, or very few of them. What is the best way to locate a lake? Is there a list or do I just have to scroll from my current GPS location to that area.
One thing I've noticed with this stuff is there are very few instructions that come with it????
Thanks for any help you can provide.

Move your cursor to the area that the lake should be located. Keep zooming in. Many people believe that the lake they are looking for is not on the chip because they do not zoom in enough.

Also if they have lots of areas on the Navionic's Map, you have to load that particular area the the lake is. Once you see that on the screen you will see an area that has the map information, then you have picked the correct area.
Then zoom into your lake.

Thanks. I got a response from navionics and where the lake is located and I was doing things right but the lake is not there. It's a different one on the opposite end of Ontario.
So, hopefully the GPS will still be helpful but I won't have a detailed GPS map which is a little disappointing.

The lake that I fish in Canada wasn't on Navionics when I first looked into GPS. Garmin at least had the outline of the lake on their Topo Canada map. It didn't have any contour lines, but the outline of the lake and the names were very accurate and helpful. I actually much prefer the Garmin handheld to my H2Oc.
