Lowrance 522 for ice fishing

5 posts in this topic

I have the lowrance 522i and want to use it in my truck for the mapping capabilities. Have any of you done this before by powering the unit with the cig lighter accessory plug? Do they sell this type of cable on the lowrance site? I contacted them but haven't heard back yet. Thanks.

Beerfish, you can purchase fused 12 volt dc receptacles for car lighters that have leads coming off of them. I bought one at Radioshack last year to run a 334 out of the car. I removed the female spades, replaced with male spades to plug into the 334. I'm pretty sure this will work with a 522 as well. Mine was an ice machine, so it had power leads with female spade plugs to hook up to the batteries terminals.

Your better off just buying the LEI cig plug.

I have my LMS332C set up on an old wood Genz box, using a RAM mount.

I then just lay the reciever on the dash, and plug in the unit to the extra power port.

The box sits on the transmision tunnel in the front, with the large 2 inch x 6 inch tall Ram mount it is perfect hieght to see and not be in the road of the radio or heater controls.

It works great, but I need to get a better system to mount the reciever as it will slide off the dash when you stomp the gas to catch the flock of geese your chasing.

I can send you some pictures tomorrow night if you give me your email addy.

Thanks for the replies. That is a good idea with the goose scouting with the GPS...never thought of that. I ended up buying the cig lighter adapter. I am going to buy another ram mount base and mount it on my marcum case some how. I want to use it in the truck and when I am walking out on the lake....which seems like most of the ice season here in the metro.

Thicken ice!

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.

      The reason I asked @eyeguy 54 is during the day that ramp parking lot at Cathedral is always full of student parking. Can't understand how they get away with it. During the week prior to Governor's Opener we never had any issues during the weekdays, but now on school days, we just launch at Wilson Park. BTW, did you find any walleye on the down current sides of the sandbars in that stretch?

      We use to go there until a few years ago. Now we are right next store. I couldn't figured out how to get into my old account so I had to make a new one. My old screen name was deershooter.

      Thanks for the reply.  Have had much time for research this year. Do you usually stay at pine tree cove?

      People who enjoy the North Shore and Lake Superior and want to help shape its future are encouraged to consider volunteering to serve on the Governor’s Council on Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program.  This is a citizen advisory group that sets grant funding priorities, reviews grant applications and recommends projects to receive funding through the Coastal Program. All funded projects benefit Minnesota’s coastal area. The 15-member council is made up of three representatives each for Carlton, Cook, Lake and St Louis counties and three at-large positions that can be filled statewide. There are ten available seats on the council. The council meets about five times per year at various North Shore locations. Council members receive travel reimbursement and serve 60 to 70 hours per year while fulfilling a two or three year term. All adult Minnesotans are eligible to serve. Anyone interested can apply online at the Minnesota Secretary of State website or download a paper application. For more information about the Coastal Program’s work and service area, see the program webpage. Questions about the Coastal Program and application process can be directed to Amber Westerbur, Coastal Program manager, at 218-834-1445 or amber.westerbur@state.mn.us.
