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.

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!
