Default Mapping options for Lowrance

I have an HDS-7 Live for the boat and I am looking for what the best mapping options are for mostly Alberta/Saskatchewan/Manitoba? Really not impressed with the Genesis system of downloading partial maps of the lake.

Well the normal 2 options you have is
Navionics and C-map. Both have their pros and cons. But you maybe disappointed with both depending on the waters you r fishing

I run a pair of HDS Carbon 9's and have them connected together by the ethernet port as well as NMEA 2000 to the trolling motor. I use Genesis C-MAPS to upload and process my own mapping. There are lakes on the site you can upload free and I will do that then turn on my mapping while on the water and remap and update if depths do not appear accurate on the pre-loaded map compared to my graph.
