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.

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.

      Yes just north of Cook.  They are open 7 days 8:00-4:30. Y-store is open 5am - midnight.

      Wind was howling when we left the dock this morning and I was pretty shook up about it. A nice steady bite with decent fish made the day a real pleasure.   Good news going into the big weekend, the fish are biting.

      Is it the LaCroix Ranger Station where you pick up the permits now?
