I've decided it's time to learn how to use my 798 after having it for 5 years. What are the benefits of updating the unit? Are the lakemaster cards worth the money? One of the main lakes I fish is not on the list of lakes for the midsouth.

Lakemaster southeast Version 4. Check it out. Believe it will cover everything you might fish.

Looking for Hamilton in Arkansas. I guess I need a midsouth and southeast version...

Not on that one. Check with Arkansas forum. Maybe someone will help you.

Remove all map cards and restore defaults BEFORE updating.
