Ground Speed on iFinder

4 posts in this topic

I have and love my Lowrance iFinder H20 C. smile.gif However, is there a minimum ground speed reading? Last weekend, I was trying to monitor my trolling speed and could not keep a reading at the slow speed, somewhere between 0.80 and 1.30 mph. It would work and then it would cut out. Most of the time it didn't work at all. frown.gif Is there a setting to improve the accuracy of this reading or any other suggestions? I would love to be able to control my trolling speed.

I've noticed the same thing on my H2Oc. I haven't tried messing with it, but it'd be cool if someone knew the answer!

My older Magellan Meridian seems to work below that speed, but the readings are not always stable. Rocking of the boat, etc., all cause the speed reading to fluctuate some tenths of MPH when going that slow.

I have an H2O and it will go down to .5mph for me when trolling. When your doing the readings, make sure you're acturally moving(got mad once at it until I figured out the wind was nuetralizing me) and your sataliet signals are strong enough. To get a good reading going slow you will need more sataliets.

      When I left for work yesterday the lake had white caps on it. When I got back 10hrs later it was locked up. An hour after that the first idiot was broke through the landing. If we get the snow they are predicting for Saturday my guess is there will be sleds in the water this weekend. They do it every year.    Patients people.
