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.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
