lowrance networking ?

9 posts in this topic

When you network 2 units can they both run off the same transducer? I have a lcx 17 thats going on the bow and will be purchasing a lcx110-c to go in the cockpit. The lcx 17 has the blue plugs does the lcx 110 have the same? Also do they need to be powered separately?

MH,

I know that the 110c has the blue connectors.

I am thinking about doing the same thing with a 337 and x-25.

From what I have been able to determine is that both units need to have power but they will share info(ie... waypoints and depth from one xducer).

I have heard rumors that you would only need 1 map cartridge and it will share that data, but don't quote me on that.

No, they cannot run off the same transducer. I've read here and there that you might be able to share the digital depth (number only) but not the actual bottom structure/scrolling screen. You can share GPS and other data such as water temp though.

LMITOUT is right on as far as I know, I updated my 25c and 112c and I can share the depth reading (digital) from the transducer (only the lowrance trasducer) The front graph uses the transducer in my minkota, so it doesn't seem to play well with others. I can also share the temp readings from the transducer on both screens. It is pretty amazing what these units are capable of, and most of us only use a smattering of there functions. I would like to see a boat that has full gauges, radar, trim tabs, etc etc etc tied into this network, that would be a site to see.

I'm running a Yamaha and plan on getting the interface cable next spring to try that out. It's not very spendy so it'll be fun to play around with.

Did a little research, and WOW, don't ya know that they have a cable for suzuki outboards also. Since I run a 'zuki df 175, I plan on adding one shortly.

Yep, I think they have them for a few different brands. I saw some screen shots of the engine telemetry and it's kinda neat. Probably won't use it much, but could be helpful in diagnosing proper props and also verifying that the analog tach is accurate amongst other things.

The newer Lowrance's are coming with an ethernet adapter. This is much wider bandwidth than the current network. I hope that we will be able to use it at some point in time to transfer sonar data between units. That would sure eliminate the interference problems we now have to contend with.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      We will see if Sailorfly is another ask a silly question one hit wonder?

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?
