lowrance upgrade problems

7 posts in this topic

A while back there was a topic about problems with different versions of the lowrance upgrade problems. I could not find the logs. My question is which units were haveing problems with reading in water of less than 15ft in the weeds and so forth. I am going to be buying a new unit and dont want to have the issues with reading in shallow water and in the weeds. The unit i think were the problem was the lcx110c. I have a lcx17m and i have issues in the weeds but once im out past the edge it is great. I am thinking about the lcx27c is this one of those units?

Yes it was, since I have one (lcx27c), but there's a new upgrade software for it. I haven't tried it on water of course but apparently it should be fixed.

It was not the unit itself that had the problem, it was a software version. Lowrance swore up and down that it was not an issue, but all of us found differently. I had issues with a 25c, a 332, and a eagle model. I have installed the newest versions of the software on my lcx-25c and my lcx 112c, and have not had a lick of problems with the new versions. I do however keep the older versions around, just in case.

I am in the same boat as sparkaber-I have 1.4 and 1.6 and the problem version is 1.7. I have the newest on my 25c and it seems to work great but will keep the older versions just in case of any new bugs.

What do you mean you will keep the older versions? Can you save them onto to a card, or did you update them previously to that, so you have them on a card already?

I see Lowrance's website has an update version 2.1.0 My two Lcx27's both have these issues. I downloaded the 2.1.0 and will be installing it soon. Hope this resolves the issue.

I have the copies on my computer so if I ever want to go back to a later version I can just load it on a SD card and put it in my Lowrance but for now I will keep the newest version cause I did not get to use it enough in the fall to truly test it. When I download the software I always choose to have it go in my documents and from there I will put it on my SD card. Hope this helps.

      I found fish on Friday like the old days it was a lot of fun but I decided not to deal with the slush and the sled on Sat.  I heard that may of been a good decision because I heard people burning out their sleds in the slush, running them wide open just to barely move.     Nothing like sledding in a rain storm, I guess to find them it has to be painful.

      HI ... I was out on a Lake Saturday Morning and two guys I noticed were catching nice Crappies hole hopping with electronics of coarse.  Finally after a bit from a semi far distance (far enough to not be able to see color but know it was the vertical spoon ones) I asked what they were using as they were packing up.  "Forage minnows no bait" one said.   So my question/s is?   Has any one fished Crappies with these?  I am a pug bug plastics guy here for Pan fish.  What particular colors has anyone had success with?   I am assuming the smaller spoon but I see they come with treble hook and or single hook?   Bob

      Thank you for the zip code, for the last 3 years I lose the tailgator reception at night around 8 I never know what zip code to try I sure hope it works.  All day everything is fine, evening comes I lose signal.

      I used the thumbnail method with all but the heavier split rigs.  If you're doing a bunch it gets sore.  I then use a small eye glass screw driver.  Once I get it started to remove the old one I slip the new one in behind it.  One falls off and the other on.   Careful, those small trebles are hard to hang onto and sticky sharp.

      really neat to see the lake from the aerial view!  Cool to see all the roads and the paths out there.  Kinda fun to look at the road systems and name what resort they are from...
