Lowrance LCX-28hd and Navionics cards

2 posts in this topic

I have a Lowrance LCX-28C HD. I have tried using my Navionics Gold card and the unit cant find it or when it does it locks up the unit and I have to power it up and down. The unit has all the Nauticpath maps on the Hard drive and they work fine.

I fish out of Valdez in Prince William Sound and the Navionics cards have a little better data than the preloaded charts.

Anyone had this happen??

Be nice as this is my first post!!

Go into the menus and find the "Map Data" selection. I think you have to be on the GPS screen to see this option when you hit the Menu key. Check to see what mapping system is selected to be loaded. There are a few options in the drop-down box on that page. I believe one of the options is Navionics. You may have to restart the graph after making the change to the settings before it'll read your map chip.

I have a 28cHD too and had problems loading my LakeMaster chip until I remembered that it needed to be enabled in the Map Data menu. They are not plug-n-play as some say.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4

      There was 20 at the site.  I'm not worried about the main sheet of ice, just the access and near shore/shallow areas.   Plenty of ice everywhere else I drilled.

      My kids went out Sat, Sun.  Went from Vermilion to Myrtle lake, said the trails were bumpy, but plenty of snow.  Lake has snow, but pretty slushy.
