Lowrance Downloadable Product Updates

I have a Lowrance LMS-337C DF according to my unit it has software version 1.1.0. I have been trying to down load version 1.8.0 on to a SD card then hopefully upload it to my unit in the boat. Unfortunately every time I “Click” on “install” from the Lowrance website I get a friendly note from Bill Gates:

“Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close”

This is driving me nuts!!!!!!!

Have you any of you had this same experience??

What would you recommend I do to remedy this issue??

Thanks

Load the Firefox browser, you'll like it better I think and use it for your download, MS has a issue with some program downloads, unless its MS, then you have to use IE.

Maybe someone will chime in about what the "upgrade" does, I did the upgrade for my Eagle FishElite i642 and regret it.

Not sure what that upgrade does but if it were my unit and it was working good I'd leave it unless it was something I really needed.

MSriverdog did you try going back to the old software? Also what problems are you having with the new version/

DO NOT upgrade your unit unless you have to. There was a thread about this, and about a dozen or so of us had big problems after and update, and had to "downdate" to an older version to remedy it. "If it ain't broke don't fix it" really is true here.

      I'm hoping the snow they are forecasting shows up. Because then it's on for sure.    Put new glass on the light weight .223 so I don't have to carry the heavy target weight gun around. Just not practical where I hunt to have a 300yard gun. A 150yard gun will do just fine.    When you cary a shotgun and a rifle on almost every stand a few extra pounds can add up in a hurry.    Good luck tonight moose

      We wait until the snowmobile club stakes the trail before going through the narrows.
