    Is there a map available that has all of the names of the coves, cuts, islands, etc. For example Old Hickory Cove, Turtle Cove, Sister Cove, etc. It would be helpful to have a map with the names of all reference points people talk about on this forum. Anyone know of a way to have interactive map that we could update with successful areas? Just a thought…

    Click the link below. You could screenshot it and place markers on it or you could use Google maps and drop pushpins.

    The way I’ve learned the areas is by getting as many maps as possible (advice I got from an elite series guy). The paper maps with the fishing hot spots, the Navionics maps (web app and iPad app are both great), google maps, google earth, bing maps (one of my faves) and anything else you can get your hands or browser on. Then cross reference all of them together. I didn’t realize that turtle cove had a name until I was looking at it on Navionics USA HD iPad app. If all else fails, feel free to ask here. This group is very helpful. There are also some names that just get passed along around different groups of people and can’t find anywhere (oriental point, fireman’s point, porter Wagner point, etc…) you’ll get it figured out.

    As for a shared map… I used to use bing maps to keep spots and share with my partner. It had a pretty decent access control for sharing and keeping it private. One thing I did like about bing was that you could draw areas in addition to placing pinpoints. Like I always say to myself, there are NO secret spots on Priest, or Old Hickory for that matter. 😉

    Well I spent the weekend on KY lake marking some exposed crappie beds while the lake was at winter pool. I came back with 25 or more waypoints. I copied these waypoints into Google Earth which does a great job of pinpointing each location with my custom description. I thought I would just load the Google Earth APP on my phone and I would be done. WRONG. The phone app does not support what they call “placemarks” so all the coordinates I saved into Google Earth are useless on my phone.

    I am looking for an app that I can use on the home computer as well as the smartphone that will share waypoints.

    Do any of you have any suggestions ?

    I just got the Navionics app. Not sure about the computer, but it syncs my phone and iPad. Just marked some of Brian’s crappie coordinates. Looking forward to giving it a try soon.

    this map from the TWRA is pretty good, but there’s a lot it doesn’t have – e.g., turtle cove, hong kong island, etc..

    I haven’t been able to find a way to have an interactive map for all of us. The best appears to just describe the new areas to each other.

    I’m not sure that there is an easy way to move from computer to phone.
    For computer to SD card, you can use the navionics HotMaps app and card reader.
    The navionics iOS app does allow you to share waypoints between the iPad and iPhone using your navionics account.
    As for a shareable map, I’ll do some digging. I tend to have lots of time to look around the Internet during conference calls.
