Default Lowrance Software for the Mississippi river

I cannot seem to find lowrance software for the Mississippi for more than a few pools.
Is it out there for the Illinois/ Missouri area?

If you mean a chart card I use and I'am happy with Navionics Gold+. My Humminbird unit uses a sd card it is 15XG-2 USA-Central, this is a 2009 or 2010 chart, the river doesn't change enough year to year for me to update each year. I think your Lowrance uses the same sd type of card but check before you buy. Good Luck

Default Lowrance sd card

Yes - by software I meant SD card.
I am also not so concerned about depth or having the most recent updates so long as the wingdams are shown. Thanks

Twain, I live in St Louis and spoke with navionics. The gentlemen informed that the navionics Hot Maps Premium would do the trick. But, I haven't purchased it yet. Remember, after you purchase and install I don't think you can return the card.

The card I have shows the wing dams & chevrons in the area around here. I know where these are but have seen them marked on the chart when using it.

Thanks guys. I have boated the area around Quincey,Il/LaGrange,Mo. with others but never with the aid of electronics.
Only once did we hit a wingdam, fortunately it was a small boat and a tiller O/B that bounced up and over.
Hopefully I can avoid that w/ my boat.

I am looking to purchase old ancient SD/15XG-2 card for the Gulf?
Anyone have one laying around. My lowrance 5000c is working great and have all the maps for where I live. I just want coverage for west florida so I can have details of shallow gulf for a vacation.
