Lowrance is replacing my ExpeditionC gps

2 posts in this topic

The Lowrance tech I talked with this afternoon (a record low of only 5 minutes on hold!) listened to my tale of woe with power cables and my iFinder ExpeditionC gps (basically the same unit as the H2OC). He spent some time looking up info in their database, and mentioned a "known problem with some of these units" where circuitry in the unit that is supposed to sense the external power cable goes haywire. My original cable would work for a while and then not. And ditto for the replacement cable they sent me in July. The clincher was the road trip that sucked the life out of some fresh batteries while displaying "External Power" the whole time. He had heard that one before with other Expeditions, and it pretty much assured him that mine was one of the units with this known circuit problem. So, I got a return authorization number and the unit is going in, supposedly for a complete replacement. Just thought some other folks might be experiencing the same frustrations, and would want to get theirs in and out before the hard water. (He didn't promise, but estimated complete turnaround at 2 to 2-1/2 weeks.)

And, if folks are thinking that this is yet another reason to avoid this line of gps, think again. I'm still convinced that this unit, combined with a LakeMaster and/or Navionics chip, is the cats.

Had a buddy with the same problem and replaced it free of charge.

      Lengths were a little tough to figure out without stressing the fish.  My board only goes to 24 and that wasn't enough.   I did tare my digital scale with the hoop of my rubber net and weighed em in that.  One was 6; the other 8.4.  I had another 24 incher earlier in the day but didn't weigh it.   We got 1 pike and severa smallies too but let everything go since fish wasn't on the menu this weekend.

      First place to look would any of the local dams. Gull river, Mississippi, Crosslake, all have fish throughout the year.   There are a few piers to try as well.

      Hello guys I'm new to this site and sorta new to the area. We do not yet have a boat so the family is trying to find some decent shoreline fishing in the area. Has anyone heard any shoreline reports?
