I have a 787 without a map card. I will be getting the Canadian maps this year but have used it for ice and spring fishing so far. On most of the big lakes it will show a rough outline of the lake (water in blue, land in green). Shorelines are a little inaccurate and of course you don't get the lake depths unless you get the map.

i have a 580 combo. internal maps are okay for direction and navigation but not for depth. navionics cards are compatible.

Got the 587ci combo here... so far, with Navionics chip in... I've still managed to only hit two shoals this month. lol.

 

Chip does help though, could've been worse..

I just bought the 597ci last week but did not get a chip yet. What's the best or cheapest card to get for ontario lakes? Does Walmart or BPS sell these cards?
