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.

      Del, We only got about 1/2 inch of snow but more snow and rain is predicted for Sunday and maybe Monday. Only 22 degrees for a high here yesterday! 39 degrees now and supposed to get to 50 degrees today. Crazy spring! Probably still frost in the ground in most areas. Cliff

      Hello Everyone, May is just a few days away and I'd love to see how the water is warming this Spring through Summer... Can we start a thread with daily water temps? Date: East side or West side: Location: Temp:   I'll be there June 10th! Thanks, ~Tripp in ATL

      Not a fishing report, but a question....   Is the frost out of the ground yet?   Bringing some stuff up to the cabin and wondering about water lines and stuff freezing and all that.   I see the forecast is for the 50's next week..     How much snow did you all get?

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
