My last 2 GPS units were Eagle. When the first one quit I called them about repairing it. They told me also that it was obsolete, but gave me a deep discount and choice of models on a newer unit. It's worth a try.

So...they're saying they won't fix it?

What is the name of that place in Nisswa that works on depth finders? I believe it is fish electronics or fishing electronics something like that. Give them a shot they might be able to help.

I have learned that when dealing with Lowrance customer service you pretty much have to tell them what they are going to do. I am very demanding when I talk to them and tell them what I expect. It is very frustrating to have to deal with customer service in the first place. Good luck and hopefully you can get it figured out.

Fish Lectronics is the name of the place in Nisswa. I called and it was a no go for repair.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!
