re: LA-1 card for Lowrance
You can combine map titles in the folder but you will have a black border overlap if the added tiles are within the older map and at the save Z level

When I told you to use zoom 19 and 15 or something you are technically overlapping two maps (aka pictures) you zoom "through" the 15z map and then you see the 19z map.

This entire process is downloading files (think of it as puzzle pieces) and stitching them back together in a lowrance readable file .at5. You are making a picture and overlaying it on your gps screen. That's why resolution is important bc you just zoom in and out on a picture just like you do on you phone when cropping a picture.

re: LA-1 card for Lowrance
Hello all...new member here and I have a quick question. I made a card and it works perfectly in the older Lowrances but not in the newer ones. Anyone know why this might be?

Also, could I get those instructions emailed to me...it's been awhile and I have forgotten how I did it the first time. Thanks in advance

DMan Need to know the steps you took to make the card so we can see if any were missed

re: LA-1 card for Lowrance
I used the youtube video instructions and got to the bound at5's. It works on my Hook5 (first version...I got it when they first came out) but would not work on a buddies Hook5 that he bought 1 year later. It seems to work on almost every unit prior to that Hook5. I just assumed Lowrance changed something in the software.

I'm going to look through the instructions and see if something is different.

in the map creator software under raster options you should have shaded relief selected and not satellite imagery. It will work on all units if that's selected.

re: LA-1 card for Lowrance
Thanks WHODAT514...I'm beginning to think it's something along those lines. The instructions say to put it in a folder named "shaded relief"...that is not something I had to do with mine before but it is probably why it doesn't work on the new models.

I'll be checking it out soon...Thanks again.

It did this on a Lowrance Ti2 and it works on that unit.

re: LA-1 card for Lowrance
Well...I'm at a loss. I followed the instructions and made a quick map...did the shaded relief and everything as written. The card works in my gen1 Hook 5...I took it to the local BP where they have the Lowrances on display. I could only get it to work on the $900 and up models. The others would not give me the option of "Lowrance" only the CMAP and Navionics for charts. Is this my problem or did Lowrance plan this?

I wouldn't mind upgrading but $900 for my kayak rig is steep. Thanks again for the help you have given me.

re: LA-1 card for Lowrance
They do not work on hook2 units, only elite, HD’s, and older hooks as well as elite hdis

Hook 2s apparently don’t support imagery idk why they did that

re: LA-1 card for Lowrance
WHODAT514...probably so they could put a slower (read cheaper) processor in Hook2's. I guess they should be considered more an entry level unit.

Anyway, thank you for the confirmation. I will keep my old hook for now but at least I know what I need when the time comes.

Where is the advanced setting on SAS Planet?

re: LA-1 card for Lowrance
Never mind that setting is in Map Creator, quick question, how long should the .kml build take? And is it OK if some zoom levels in tiles are “do not exist”?

Email me at gironcd@gmail.com if it’s easier. Hung up in kml after 3 days of downloading tiles (big map).

TIA
