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.

      Try Shamrock Marina or Gruben's Marina. Both are fairly close to the Trout Lake Portage. Cliff

      My Lab had ACL surgery about 4 years ago on one back leg. 6 months later had to do the other leg! She has not been the same since! Very stiff in both back legs and basically unable to hunt since the surgery. I would ask your vet about the chances of your dog having the same results and also about the chance of it needing an operation on the other leg soon after! My vet told me that the chances of the other legs ACL tearing would be very high after doing one leg. Cliff

      As long as we're talking about trout lake, can someone suggest a boat rental location for a summer trip into TL?  Would need 3 fishing boats for a 4 day trip in early june.  Thanks.   Matt

      I have not fished there, but I drive by it everyday and they have been pulling fish-houses with pickups for at least a couple week now off the East end anyways.  Like I said I haven't been out there personally, so I don't know how much ice there is, but on 2 other area lakes I had 16-17" last weekend.

      Well, I went out Friday afternoon/evening from the beach access in Glenwood.  I measured 17" of ice.  Fishing was not good.  Never even marked a fish.  Hope others had good luck, there is a ton of houses out again this year.  Someone ought to be catching them!
