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.

      7/24/17     Got my son and one of my daughters out with Grandpa Smutka on Waconia this afternoon (I have football practice every morning this week). We targeted panfish alongside a weedy reef. Small jig spinners (1/8 ounce VMC Mooneye Jig with a #2jig spinner and a 2" Powerbait Minnow) slow rolled over the weed tops caught tons of crappies and a bonus bass. A 1/16 ounce jig with a 1" Power Grub suspended 4 feet below a slip float caught crappies and sunfish, Caught numbers and some nice ones--beautiful weather and great time for the kids spent with Dad and Grandpa. Good luck, take a kid fishing, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      I know back in the day, late 90's, people camped out along (approaches beside it)the forest road along Birch lake.  The road on the right, right before the dam on hwy 1 south of Ely.   I dont know all the legalities of thr forest there, they may or may not have been legal.

      The local state parks are also an option. Very modest yearly fee there also. Cliff

      Absolutely. I'd never get mad at a guy squirrel hunting while I'm deer hunting. Thats just public land hunting. Now if he shot at squirrels very close to me that's different. Maybe the guys I talked to had a bad experience but it isn't that frequent. That's what I hope anyway.

      Looks like the forest service campgrounds charge a modest fee.  But the are pretty nice.   Fall lake, fenske lake are a couple to consider
