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.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
