Lowrance Downloadable Product Updates

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.

      Just got back, Warroad access is foot travel only two trucks broke thru on weds morn. Went to Spring Steel on weds it was drive out at your own risk they had a truck break thru tues. eve, I walked out in the little bay there maybe half mile out 7 hrs 1-flag-1-fish 34.5 at 230 that was it did get to see a truck break thru just one tire but they had alittle trouble getting out. Today walked out of Warroad did not need the auger found plenty of open holes. Fished till 100 no flags there were other people out and they were as busy as I was. By SS the ice was 2 feet  but the top foot is getting soft I seen atvs out . It was nice day on the lake yesterday I heard 66 in town also I had a critter attach it self to my sucker today that I did not know was in the lake, a lamprey. I hope this helps you guys be careful out there and good luck.  Stay Safe Good Luck   Bear55

      Andi and I made it out to a local river for a few hrs.... White suckers are running in force. We must have gotten 20 each.

      So how do you guys go about finding fish when you go out...Do you drive around until you mark fish or big schools of smelt then troll that area?? I know I've read about using a site that shows Superiors water temps also....I'm thinking of trying it this weekend if I get the boat ready in time and the weather is ok.
