My lcx 18 did the same thing this summer. It ended up being a bad electrical connection!

so i messed around with the units last night. the x-15 works in both boats at all three hookup points. the x-19 resets at all three hookup points. checked the connectors on the back of the unit and they seem fine.

any thoughts?

Did you try the Lorance Web sight for ideas?

I had the same thing with the Eagle Ultra Classic that came on a used boat I bought this summer. I e-mailed Lowrance and without doing any diagnostics or hardly any hoop-jumping, they just sent me a Rebate letter that gives me between $75-$400 off of a new unit. They said it was because my unit was too old, they didn't support it anymore.

It hasn't happened for a few weeks now, so I think the previous poster was probably on to something. Do you have a voltmeter? You could hook one up for a few minutes and see if the voltage drops when you put a load on the system. I'm not a mechanic or anything, I've just been trying to figure out the same thing recently.

mtreno I had a x-15 do that before (the x-15 you have now replaced it) Lowarance sent me out a new one and never really told me why. I called them up and told them what was going on and a new one was sent out. Rumor had it that it is the same problem as a computer crashing, it gets confused and shuts down...like it had to much to drink.

      My buddy has the 5 w/GPS. When you combine it with a lakemap chip it's a really sweet set-up for ice fishing as you can pinpoint spots on lakes and mark your location for the next time you're out.  I don't know anything about the sonar vs. flasher issue or if there is a slight delay. All I know is I want one.   Also, there are down imaging and side imaging versions available, and ones with and without GPS. Be sure you take that into consideration when you're shopping. I've gotten excited about some pretty good deals I've seen on the Helix 5, only to realize it doesn't have GPS. If you're going to use your for ice fishing I think you would want the GPS version.

      Whenever I want to take a kid out fishing and keep them entertained, then I always go to Kelly Dudley.  In the summer, it is impossible not to catch a steady stream of sunfish.  I have never tried it in the winter, but suspect it would be a good place to keep an eight year old busy.   If you go out, make absolutely sure to bring ice cleats.   There is an indoor fish camp going on in Faribault this weekend.  http://www.maxsolutionsonline.com/cityoffaribault/Customer/ActivityDetail.aspx

      Are you looking for this summer?   Are you looking for cabin type resorts, camping, tent/RV?   Here is a place to start:   http://business.parkrapids.com/list/category/resort-cabin-327   I live in the area so haven't spent to much time at different resorts but I've always liked R&D Resort on Straight Lake in Osage, MN which is only 8 miles from Park Rapids. Isle O' Dreams is another very cool place to stay.

      Lots of water on the ice now where people have their houses. Took my house off yesterday and the plowed roads were pretty slushy already.
