... for maps of popular areas of Manitoba. We fish maybe 5 or 6 lakes, that I can't find in any map chips other than AEM(almost). That's another $200 for a map chip that doesn't even cover all of our favorite lakes.

I went for a Garmin Striker Plus 5cv w/ contour mapping. I'll map them myself and be done with it. May take a few days out mapping/fishing, but gas is cheap on my small Tohatsu. It burns like a liter every 5 hrs. That's my plan and i'm sticking with it! ;)

Using the Fishsmart app on your phone you can download Humminbird Chartselect maps for like $14 each. https://chartselect.humminbird.com/chartselect

You can use them on a Humminbird unit but if you don't have one you use your phone. Not sure if it covers the lakes you want but it covers quite a few lakes (not as many as AEM but also has some lakes that aren't covered by AEM). I've tested these maps and they turned out to be pretty accurate. I do plan on getting a Lowrance someday for AEM mapping though in the future.

Though it's probably a lot nicer to see the maps on your graph instead of your phone.

Here is a summary of AEM's 2019 coverage, and a few links videos that shows the survey effort put into their creation.
