I was up to red jan 10 and talked to u on the ice one day. Just updated from the h20 to the expedition c mainly for the pressure history. It works great for telling if the pressure is going up,down,or steady.I have found that it doesnt seem to give a accurte reading.Just wondering how yours has been? Noticed u can adjust the altimeter yourself or run it just by the gps. Wondering what has seemed to work best for you? Any info would be great, thanks alot!

Mine is dead on with the local weather tower reading through the weather service.

One thing I did notice is if you are in a house or vehicle buttoned up tight the heating system will build pressure and mess it up. Put it in your vehicle then roll the windows up turn on the heater and watch the current reading, it will jump until you crack a window.

As for adjustments I'm not sure, going to have to look in the book...guessing it is somewhere in that novel.

Thanks for the info about it being inside,it makes sense. Mine has been reading 1 full point lower than it should with the local tower. If it is 29.80 mine reads 28.80 Thanks again... I might have to call lowrance on this one.

Hmmm thats interesting, let me know what they say. I looked in the 4,000 page owners manual and didn't find anything about it.

I have a Casio watch that has a barometer function and it is impossible to keep it in sync with the weather service. Although you want it to be fairly close, just remember that it is the trend you are looking for so I would not worry too much if it is off a little.

      There was random ice sheets all over the lake this morning.   Should be ice covered 100% barring it being to windy.   By Friday at the latest.   Could be ice fishing next week in certain areas.   Don

      Was up this past weekend, everything is still open. Should lock up this week though looking at the chilly forecast.

      An older gentleman I know gave me his ice fishing gear last year knowing he wasn't able to use it anymore due to health.  Really tore him up, as I'm sure it would for all of us.  Cleaned up the tipups real nice, and took this photo of one on Leech to send to him knowing they were in good hands and more importantly continue to catch fish!   I'm not in St.Cloud, nor want in for the contest just thought I'd share
