Its just E.V. it might be cool to have in the summer but it bothers me right now for some reason....

Is it even possible to do a master reset on this thing?

Sorry bout the stupid questions but I just got this thing like 4 hours ago and there is so much stuff you can do with it and im not the sharpest tool in the shed

The best thing to do is to just sit down and read the owners book. Also make sure u have plenty of batteries. LOL. I just traded my h20c in for the expedition. Love being able to watch the pressure history! Good Luck.

I was waiting for that answer!

But really I have gone over it a few times....I got a ton of batteries and Im glad I do cause that thing is a battery hog.

The more I think about it, I can't remember if it had the E.V. symbols before, I remember seeing the symbols for bouys and rocks so it possible....With some of these lake maps they are soooooooo detailed that im even more at a loss for spots to try if that makes sense.

I think im gonna like this toy!

There is a way to do a master reset. Too long to explain but if you go to google and search for reset on h2oC you will get it. I had to do it about 3 months ago and it worked great. You will lose any and all info you have in it though \:\(

There is also a menu option to restore factory settings, I don't recall exactly where it is or what it's called but it should be easy to find. Look under the gps or system setup options on the 2nd memu screen, and make sure you're using the advanced menu settings. It's all described in the manual if you can't find it on your own. Good luck.

You could plug the thing in to your cigarette lighter and avoid totalling all the batteries. If you don't want to sit in a cold garage you could rig up a female cigartte lighter with a short wire and a couple allicator clips and attach it to your boat batter, a gel cell or whatever you have sitting around not being used.

Craig P first, take out your chip and turn it back on. Then go back to your lake on the gps. This will tell you if it was something you programmed on your gps or if all that E.V. stuff was on the chip. If all that stuff is still there you can delete it, if not that means it was on the chip from the factory and I don't think there is much you can do to get rid of it[it probably was already on the chip]. I have never done the master reset thing, but i'm not sure if you should do that with the chip installed. Cause there is ways to delete all the info on the chip, then you will have spent a bone for nothing. Call the place you bought it to double check.

Craig go to map cat., then to water, then at the bottom of the screen use your center arrow and scroll to the right till you get to vegetation and uncheck this. Hope this helps.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
