Why Can’t I See Any Data?

Answer: Make Sure your unit is zoomed in close enough. FHS Data such as Marked fishing areas, buoys etc. appear at 0.1 mile zoom level.

Also: Determine if the body of water your are looking at is a premium lake.* If it is not, it will not contain FHS Data such as Marked fishing areas, buoys etc.

Can I view the maps from my FHS Pro chip on my computer?

Answer: No. The data contained on the chips is formatted for use on GPS units only. However, the computer/online alternative to the FHS Pro chips is Fishidy. Visit fishidy.com to view all of our maps and realtime data.
