The MapCreate™ 7 software is compatible with Lowrance mapping GPS+WAAS products with digital media memory card (MMC/SD) capability. A variety of accessory pack options are available with the DVD-ROM software, including an LEI MMC/SD card reader/writer, one digital media card, and with or without a 12-parallel channel GPS+WAAS satellite receiver/antenna.
Note: An update is available for this version of MapCreate - If you have trouble cutting out Alaska mapping data and/or railroads, please download the MapCreate 7 Update.
Note: For security purposes, MapCreate™ 7 encodes maps to memory cards, and will restrict the encoding process to a maximum of five different memory cards. You can create as many maps as you like, but they will only work on the first five memory cards that you register with the MapCreate™ 7 software.
Note: You must use an LEI branded memory card reader/writer for MapCreate™ 7 to work properly.
