Welcome a board, you will find that there is a lot of folks here that will jump in to help where ever they can.   First off I see you are from South Carolina, if correct then Lakemaster Charts are not available for your area (as far as I know).  Lakemaster makes charts for N & S Dakota, Minn, Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Indiana and Ohio.  So if correct your only option is Navionics, both have great products.

I am not sure about the other stuff you are asking about, accept that you cannot modify Navionics charts and aside from what has been preloaded on your unit only Navionics' charts will work.  But then again, if wrong someone will correct me.

Not sure what you are looking for  but Antonline has Navionics Hotmaps Lake Maps East On Sd/Micro Sd for $99.86 plus $7.98 shipping.  Yolu may want to check with them to onsut it is a 2010 card.

the lowrance/lei maps using the lowrance map create program should not work on any but the lowrance units.  I tried to load on the 1197 some time back and nothing happened.  I guess it is for lowrance only.  chuck
