Title: QUestion for Contour Elite Great Lakes owner
Post by: cramar_2112 on January 24, 2018, 06:22:58 PM
Hi, I'm looking at buying Contour Elite Great Lakes but one problem, I live on the border of Ontario Canada and Michigan and I literally go fishing on water bodies that are split by the US Canada border. Here's the thing, bathymetric data for lakes in Canada is LOUSY, our gov't has it but wont share it commercially. Everything I have to date is based on NOAA projects and they have basically done a respectable buffer around the USA and covered a healthy amount of Canada, the key thing that is NOAA based and many products out there basically recycle that data.
IT's good data but if there's better I'd like to get it.

So, if possible if anyone has Contour ELite Great Lakes I'm trying to find out of the image below (Sault Ste Marie Ontario, Sault Ste Marie Michigan) is covered in this product or is it CLIPPED at the US/Canada border and my side is missing. I'd hate to dish out 150 bucks only to find my side of the border isn't' covered.
I emailed the company but they didn't respond, I'd appreciate any help.

tschultz, thank you very much for taking the time to do that, I've been trying to get that info for 2 years and the areas I fish are actually excluded.
I really appreciate your help!!!
