Lowrance 520c Issue?

7 posts in this topic

When running a 520c in split screen mode (sonar/GPS), when the unit is powerd off and then on again, shouldn’t the screen come back up in the same configuration as it was when it was powered off? I have a friend that has a 520c and we both thought the settings should stay the same after power off but his always comes back up with just the GPS screen. Is there a setting we are missing or is this just the way it is?

Mine does the same thing. I believe that you need to set it to the screen you would like each time you turn it on.

All my units do that too and I wish it would go to sonar.

Haven't seen anything in the menus that allows you to set your preference screen.

My 332s do that also, I believe it is something new after the latest update but I don't know for sure. Funny how the little things like that get so (Contact Us Please) annoying.

PJ,

You are probably correct about this being caused by the latest updates. Another friend runs two 332c units and both of his stay where he left them after powering off/on. They are last years models and knowing him, I doubt he has done any updates. Hard to believe that Lowrance does not consider this an issue since you can save your other sonar settings like auto sensitivity off etc. Grrrrrrrrrrrrr…………

GJ-

You are not missing anything. It's the latest and greatest software (in new locators too) from Lowrance. crazy.gif My 25C never did this until I uploaded 1.7 software.

Hopefully Lowrance will bring out a new software soon, because I would really like to see the bottom 20' of water and weeds too.

I am also finding that some of my network settings are changing when I power off the units. Very annoying.

      Yeah, but this one is packed with useful information and tips, and not everyone who browses the site today saw this in 2015. It's really a great thread, and that's why I bumped it.    Wouldn't it be more sensible and more useful to the members of the site to simply edit the title and remove the "2015"?   ***How about it, mods? Rejuvinate this thread with a new title!***

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
