GPS question

7 posts in this topic

I've got a Lowrance 334c with the Navionics chip and when I start it up, I'm still at the last place I fished. I have to use the arrow keys to get to where I'm at and have to constantly follow the boat with the arrows keys to keep from going off the screen. Shouldn't the GPS automatically tell me where I'm at and center my current possition on the screen?

Thanks!!!

yes it should when your on your gps screen and you see the cross hairs you need to hit the exit key to get he cross hairs off the screen and it should tell you where you are and follow you and the screen should follow as you drive across lake..every time you scroll with the arrows you will have to hit exit to get the cross hairs off the screen...hope this helps out

How do you get rid of the path you went on the lake the times youve fished before? Also are there any settings youve found to work better on it?

Hit menu twice and then scroll to cancel navigation and hit enter. This will erase your path.

That did the trick. Kind of a "duh" moment but then I don't know how long I would've gone before I figured it out. Thanks!!!

      You can use the clam plate with the k-drill, they make an adapter. The K-drill recommends a minimum of 725 or 750 for torque, so you almost have to get the higher end drills. The newer Clam has the gear box which will double your torque with a 2:1 gear ratio. You can pick up the conversion box for $70. They had a deal on those at the show last weekend, as well as the K-drill. The K-drill cuts through the ice like butter, if you get the clam plate and conversion box, you should be able to still get double the torque then. So Clam plate $70, plus the Clam conversion box ($70), and add in the K-drill ($215), and I already have a drill. Brings the total up to $355. But don't have to purchase gas or propane or, light weight, no fumes. I will let everyone know how it works out.
