The Garmin LakeVu HD features more than 17,000 total lakes, of which more than 5,700 are HD maps with 1 foot contours shoreline to shoreline.
The Ultimate Freshwater Fishing Map
These are the most feature-rich freshwater maps Garmin has ever offered. MaxDef maps bring the greatest possible detail to your chartplotter. LakeVü™ HD Ultra gives you everything available with LakeVü™ HD and adds even more features and precision.
MaxDef Lakes -- A Commitment to Accuracy
Garmin has invested in their own fleet of survey boats equipped with ultra-sensitive sonar technologies. This fleet is cruising lakes and rivers throughout the U.S., creating our own exclusive ultra-high detail maps - a level of detail that's unprecedented in recreational mapping. We started with the most popular fishing lakes and are traveling around the country adding more lakes all the time. These are Garmin exclusive MaxDef lakes.
Auto Guidance (More Than 5,700+ HD Lakes)
A Garmin exclusive, Auto Guidance directs you to your hot spots quickly by instantly creating an on-screen path for your boat to follow that avoids shallow water and other charted obstructions. Shown with MarinerEye view.
High Resolution Relief Shading (More Than 5,700+ HD Lakes)
High Resolution Relief Shading adds visual depth to the 2-D map making it easier to interpret contours and find fish holding structure.
Dynamic Lake Level (More Than 5,700+ HD Lakes)
Allows you to adjust your maps to the lake's current water levels giving you a better idea of spots that are either accessible or too shallow to explore.
Depth Range Shading (More Than 5,700+ HD Lakes)
Displays high-resolution Depth Range Shading to view your designated target depth. If you know the fish are biting between 10' and 15' you can mark that depth range.
FishEye View (More Than 5,700+ HD Lakes)
Underwater perspective shows 3-D representation of lake bottom and contours as seen from below the waterline. Interface with sonar data for customized view.
Sonar Imagery (More Than 40+ MaxDef Lakes)
Shows a nearly photographic view of the bottom, as if all the water had been drained away.
Surface and Side Scan Photos (More Than 40+ MaxDef Lakes)
Gives you a clear visual reference of notable spots above and structure below the surface of the water.
Features detailed coverage of more than 17,000 freshwater lakes, reservoirs and rivers throughout the continental U.S.

A complex series of locks and dams up and down the Ohio River enable interstate commerce, travel and recreation by maintaining a usable pathway for watercraft, but come with the inevitable byproducts of disrupting the river’s natural systems. To combat this, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers uses a complex monitoring and response technology designed to minimize the negative impacts of dredging on the river ecosystem. Steven Foster, a limnologist with the Corps Water Quality Team, works at the Robert C. Byrd Lock and Dam in Gallipolis Ferry, West Virginia. He said one key area he focuses on is the welfare of mussels in the river. River dredging can smother mussel beds, so Foster and the team of engineers monitor the beds to ensure their safety.Read More
While the scientific community has formed its consensus on how ice sheets are shrinking in and around Greenland, some researchers are tracking what happens to the meltwater as it drains into the ocean each summer. Their study, published in Nature Geoscience by an interdisciplinary team of biologists, oceanographers and hydrologists, used computer models to simulate the meltwater to see where currents take it and what effect it could have on the ocean. Renato Castelao, one of the researchers and an associate professor of marine science for the University of Georgia, said one of the biggest discoveries of the study was the surprising final destinations of the ice sheets as they melt into the ocean each summer.Read More
Thinking of hitting the ice with a SondeCAM underwater fishing camera? Due to its rugged design, you won't have to worry about it handling the harsh elements. However there are a few simple tricks to get the most out of a FishSens SondeCAM while ice fishing. You won't have to do anything to modify the SondeCAM itself, but you are going to have to bring a few extra things. Most importantly we are going to need a power source. Unless you are hauling your gear with a truck, you'll want something more portable than the battery you used in the boat. Pick up an inexpensive and maintenance-free 12-volt, 9-amp battery. It is going to provide plenty of power, but will be much lighter and take up less space.Read More
