Lowrance 5200c GPS

4 posts in this topic

I'm looking to get a GPS for my boat. This Lowrance 5200c is a color GPS only unit with 480x480 pixels. This seems like a nice unit for the price. Does anybody have any experience with this unit? Thanks.

It's essentially the same as the LMS-520c which I have two of and they are nice little units. I too was going to buy a GPS only unit (5200) but figured I could swap the 520's around if one happened to die and I needed a sonar, so I bought the second 520 instead of the GPS only unit.

I really like my 520's and the screen is very bright, clear, and easy to read. They do the job well for the money and don't see why the 5200 would be any different.

I have had quite a few problems with my 5200c.

I have had to replace the puck 2 times and my last time out i got the dreaded "GPS not responding" again. I am afraid i am going to be on my 3rd LGC-3000 puck. It did start working again after i ran my big motor...but i had 12.9 volts the whole time on the battery so i dont know what the heck is going on?

Very strange problems with this unit.

      Leftover spring turkey permits go on sale March 20 The 105,464 leftover permits for the 2017 spring turkey hunting season will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis beginning Monday, March 20 at 10 a.m. Leftover permits will be first issued for sale by zone, one zone per day. The following zones have leftover permits, and scheduled sales dates are as follows: Zone 1 - Monday, March 20; Zone 2 - Tuesday, March 21; Zone 3 - Wednesday, March 22; Zone 4 - Thursday, March 23; and Zones 5, 6 and 7 - Friday, March 24 (due to the low number of permits left in these units, sales have been combined into one day). After zone-specific sales, all remaining turkey tags will be made available for purchase Saturday, March 25. Extra turkey tags can be purchased at a rate of one per day until the zone and time period sells out or the season closes. Leftover turkey permits cost $10 for residents and $15 for non-residents – each will have equal opportunity to purchase over-the-counter permits. All hunters are required to purchase a spring turkey license and 2017 Wild Turkey Stamp, unless they have previously purchased the license and stamp or are a 2017 Conservation Patron License holder. Leftover permit purchases will not affect preference point status for future spring or fall turkey permit drawings. Leftover permits can be purchased online through GoWild.WI.gov   and at all license agents. Hunters with any questions regarding permits should contact the DNR Customer Call Center, open 7 a.m. through 10 p.m., seven days a week, at 1-888-WDNRINFo (1-888-936-7463).

      Raining hard up there too JI'm?  Been raining here all day with a couple thunderstorms rolling through to boot.  Hope to still find some good ice up north before it's over.
