H2O - 1 GB (or bigger) SD Card

11 posts in this topic

I've read that a 512mb is the largest SD Card you can use for the Lowrance H2O GPS. The 512 is becoming harder and harder to come by.

Does anyone know if the H2O will accept the bigger cards but only use the max 512MB?

Thanks!

I just tried a 2GB card in my H20C and it only recognized 1GB of it. It did mention in the manual that at the time of printing (2005 I think) there were only 1GB SD cards or something to that effect.

Thanks Jr.

You're right - when I looked at my paper manual, it references the 1 GB like you stated. But when I was looking at the PDF manual (my first mistake) it referenced the 512 MB.

I think I'll pick up the 1 GB and give it a whirl.

Thanks again!

I have a one GB card in mine loaded with all of the MN info from Mapcreate and it works fine.

If you can find the smaller size cards you might as well same some coin. The Navionic North Chip I have that has map data for I am guessing here but it has to have at least 3000 lakes on it probably more and it is all on a 512 card.

Northwoods, what kind of stuff takes up that much space? Do you use software for lake maps?

It's not that I need that big of card - they are just easier to find and actually cheaper than the 512KB.

      The Bay is so different from the Lake.  The heavy breeze is keeping the lake open.  Things calm down Fri to Sun that will most likely freeze the lake over.  Then we get strong winds again on Mon to Wed that could likely blow it open again.  You may be able to fish the bay, but I am doubting the lake.  JMHO.  I can wait, but I am getting the itch.

      I have a 2015 21' Ice Castle RV that has two house batteries. I added the second to the house. It will run the furnace fan all night but it is running a lot slower by morning. There is a noticeable increase in fan speed when I start the generator in the morning. I am thinking of adding a third battery to the house to make up the difference.

      Any area ice reports? I'm hearing that most of the smaller bodies of water in the area have now frozen over. Should make it out sometime this weekend to try my luck . Good luck, and please stay safe
