Lowrance/Eagle repair

8 posts in this topic

i have a Eagle Cuda 242 that is just out of warranty. I only used it twice and now it won't read depth. I thought it was a bad pin in the trasducer cable so I bought a new transducer but still the same. Is there a place close to the metro besides Lowrance that can look at these? I only use it in the front of my boat when my son is with and don't want to spend much more on the cheap little thing. confused.gif

Try Fish-Lectronics, they're on University near 694.

I talked to them but all they could do was sell me a transducer. I know there is a guy supposedly by Brainerd but don't have his info. Thought maybe there would be someone closer.

Wish I could help but the only other ideas I have about repair would be to call Reeds and see if they know about the guy in Brainerd.

Ebay might be an option. Since you have a new transducer, maybe you could get lucky and find a deal on a head unit that works with the transducer. Might not fit too good with your plan of not spending a lot more money on it though.

Good luck.

Thanks for the ideas. On Ebay they are going as much or more than the local stores. It amazes me what people will pay for some items.

Call Jim Wentworth at Fish Lectronics in Nisswa, MN.

Lowrance emailed me today and said they would cover the unit under warranty. For being 13 months old, I have to give a hats off to them.

I've always felt Lowrance/Eagle have a pretty good customer service. Glad to hear they're taking care of you.

      I often run into rusty crayfish when I'm in the boundary waters.  I tried to dig up some solid info on them but are they safe to eat? same as southern crayfish i wonder?  Suck the heads and everything?  It'd be a nice side for a pan full of fish in the BWCA.

      Maybe that's my problem, I'm not trying shallow enough.  Good report and hopefully I'll get a good report after my four day fishing outing this weekend.  Hoping accesses stay safe enough.  Wednesday night around 22-23:00 is supposed to start freezing and other then a few hours on Thursday and a few hours during the day on Monday we will be below freezing the next 10 days.  I just hope as its freezing people are not out there rutting up the ice and it can freeze smooth for safer travels.    BB did you do better with minnows/spoons/jigs/wax worms?
