iFinder H2Oc condensation

5 posts in this topic

Pretty bummed when condensation appeared behind the screen of my H2Oc last weekend. The unit is only 5 months old. Hadn't even rained! I then had intermmitent problems for the entire Saturday (unit turned on, but portions of the screen wouldn't display), but Sunday it worked fine. Lowrance claims to have a 1 year warranty and I plan on sending it back. Anyone have experience with the warranty policy at Lowrance? How about condensation with the units? I also see others on the forum have had issues with their power cables -- mine has worked intermittenly at best.

I've logged thousands of miles on mine on sleds, atvs and in the vehicle for navigation (well, you should know that bronze backs.. wink.gif ). Not an issue whatsoever.

Send it back to Lowrance, report the issues and the power cord...sounds like a troubled unit. Do you have the receipt where you purchased it, return there?

Must be on all paved/groomed trails in a padded case. grin.gif

Hoping I can find the receipt.

Wish I would've spent the extra $100 on the Garmin. Never had an issue with my current Map76 -- better quality and superior UI, but I needed an update. Liked the maps a little better on the H2O.

I took a trip to the Boundary Waters with mine and it developed some condensation in the screen. It went away within a day or two and hasn't been back.

My first one fogged up. Cabelas honored the warranty and replaced it on the spot. The new one has worked great since. Check with the retailer before you send it off.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.

      Cigarguy seems to know a lot about the Landing from its Facebook post or driving bye. Seems very narrow minded about a buisness he does frequent.  Not sure if he actually lives in the area?   We frequent the Landing often!  The environment is inviting, clean, food is exceptional and consistent!  The service is outstanding the owners are alway there and working.  They operate a fantastic operation.  They've taken a facility that had a lot of issues in the past and turned it into a place we all on Lake Vermilion are proud to bring our family and friends!  The area and lake have had a lot of failures and "most" bar/restaurants are for sale.  Cigarguys favorite, the Crescent is for sale.  Bayview is open seasonally and who knows it's future.  Wolf bay is open seasonally. The Vermilion Club has shortened hours.  I would think supporting all the buisness on Lake Vermilion is what we should be doing before we have less and less options! Lake vermilion has a lot of options but only one crown jewel...The Landing!
