Frequently Asked Questions


What is the difference between the Classic, Premium, and Professional E-Cards?


The Classic E-Card contains high resolution aerial imagery data only that replaces the base map of your GPS. Features from the GPS will overlay along with the mapping, allowing for these features to work alongside the mapping. These features include the navigational aids, tides & currents, and waypoints, routes & trails. 


The Premium E-Card will offer added content along with the high resolution aerial imagery data. The added features include the offshore field blocks, Wildlife Management Area's, and trusted routes through the marsh. The offshore field blocks will outline each block along with the block identification number. The Wildlife Management Area's will be outlined in green as well as the names of each area. The trusted routes are yellow lines that overlay on the mapping offering a highway system created by local Marina owners and fishing guides to help navigate through the difficult areas of the marsh. The yellow lines include red dots that if selected will identify the trusted route and offer a description of where to and from the route will take you. These routes are beneficial for the avid fisherman trying to find new ways to navigate around the marsh.  


The Professional E-Card has the professional's in mind. Along with the high resolution aerial imagery offered in the Classic E-Card, you will receive all the added content of the Premium E-Card, such as, the offshore field blocks, the Wildlife Management Area's, and the trusted routes through the marsh. However, what makes this E-Card so professional is the outlined oyster leases and State seed grounds. The oyster leases are outlined in white and will identify the lease the number, as well as, who the lease belongs to. The State seed grounds are outlined in purple. To learn more about the Public Grounds and the Private Leases, check out the Louisiana's Wildlife and Fisheries page here.

Will the E-Card wipe all of my user routes and data stored on my unit?

No. Your user data (Waypoints, Routes, & Trails) will still be accessible and will run on top of our imagery. However, it is always a good practice to backup all of your user data on an extra SD card every few months.
