Garmin International's update is described as a significant addition to an already extensive database of detailed lake cartography, new features have been added to provide unparalleled detail to the most accurate mapping on the market.

“Cartography is such a crucial part of the fishing experience and LakeVü HD Ultra brings unrivaled detail to the angler’s fingertips,” said Dan Bartel, vice president of worldwide sales. “Garmin is dedicated to producing the best freshwater cartography on the market. With an expanding database of lakes and the incredible precision of MaxDef, LakeVü HD has more than double the detail of the nearest competitor for inland mapping.”

The database of high-definition inland lakes for LakeVü HD Ultra has been significantly increased for 2014. While over 17,000 inland lakes are represented, LakeVü HD Ultra now boasts over 5,700 high-definition lakes with 1-foot contour lines shore-to-shore, ten-times the previous amount. With such a large number of lakes providing high-definition detail, it’s significantly easier to locate a local fishing spot with better detail than ever.

A new feature added to all HD lakes is high-resolution Relief Shading. With Relief Shading, color and visual depth are added to help easily interpret humps, valleys and drop-offs. It allows for a two-dimensional map to help take on a three-dimensional look and feel.

LakeVü HD Ultra provides added benefit to the angler by including exclusive Garmin surveyed MaxDef lake maps. MaxDef maps currently include over 40 of the top fishing lakes in the U.S. and according to the suppliers are far more accurate than the leading recreational fishing cartography currently available.
