GoFREE launches Map& Win! program at FLW College Championship

FLW-College-Natl-Champ-Registration-COLLAGEThursday, April 15, 2015 – If the team that wins the FLW College Fishing National Championship this week maps its winning spot with Insight Genesis, it will walk off the weigh-in stage with more hardware than just the tournament trophy – it will also win a Lowrance HDS-12 Gen-2 Touch sonar/GPS fish-finder.

That’s the prize in GoFREE’s new Map & Win! contingency-award program for contestants in the Insight Genesis College Cup. GoFREE is the newest brand from Navico, parent company of Lowrance, Simrad and B&G. Insight Genesis is GoFree’s revolutionary custom mapping program exclusive to Lowrance, Simrad and B&G sonar/GPS units. College Cup is a year-long contest in which FLW and B.A.S.S. collegiate anglers can win thousands of dollars’ worth of Lowrance HDS Gen-2 Touch units by logging sonar data used to create custom fishing charts with one-foot contours, a vegetation-map layer and a bottom-hardness map. To claim the prize, a College Cup-registered angler must win an FLW or B.A.S.S. college fishing tournament after mapping 100 acres or more of the tournament waters with Insight Genesis.

“Mapping your spots while graphing them in practice already pays off for College Cup anglers, in terms of locating humps and holes, ditches and drains, submerged vegetation and hard-bottom sweet spots that other fishing maps just don’t show,” says GoFREE’s Greg Huff, a custom-mapping expert. “The Map & Win! contingency program creates yet another pay-off for mapping your own success – an HDS-12 Gen2 Touch unit!” Continue reading “GoFREE launches Map& Win! program at FLW College Championship”
