LowranceNet

8 posts in this topic

Anyone using LowranceNet to link gps, temp sensors etc? I am have a LMS-332c and am in the market for another graph of the bow of my boat. I am thinking of something that I can move back to the dash for other times (trolling/downrigging). I was also thinking of putting a temp sensor in my livewell just for kicks, oh and a fuel flow sensor. So many options out there. Anything I should watch out for, any issues?

Thanks

The boat I am getting is coming with a 115hp Yamaha, On Yamaha's website it looks like the motor is setup for NMEA too. Can I hook the motor to my graph too?

If you want to know what will work and what you need go to Lowrance's website and click on the lowrancenet in the left upper corner on the home page. That will take you too a design page that You can drag and drop things on a design page and lowrance will verify that it will or will not work!

Will also let you print a parts list of the things you chose and lowrance verified will work together!

I have the LowranceNet, don't have a fuel flow sensor since my SmartCraft gauge takes care of that. My network has 3 head units plus a 4th location, gps antenna, temp sensor, and power connection on it. I like it, sure is nice for expanding and upgrading units.

I see on my Marine radio it says it hooks up to NMEA too. Does that broadcast GPS location in emergency? This sure seems like a cool way to link everything together. And buy a second graph cheaper w/o gps & transducer.

Thanks for the info.

You will still need second transducer, just not the second GPS reciever...most GPS untits come with the reciever anyway, keep it for a spare. The nice thing about linking is that a waypoit saved on one unit automaticlly saves to the second unit as well.

Wow I didn't know that about the waypoint between the 2.

I am planning on using the second graph with my trolling motor that has a built in ducer. The idea being that while trolling or on longer rides I could move the graph from the front to the dash and have 1 display for map and 1 display for sonar.

Okay, so you already have a sonar on the dash I take it?? Just want to have GPS option there as well?

So you would need the only GPS reciever to feed the unit when on the dash, and GPS and transducer when on the bow?

Sounds like that could be done....LEI or Lowrance dot net has a downloadable brochure or manual showing different linking setups, check it out an find one similar to what you want.

      I belive you need to pick up permit day before you enter when getting a motor day use permit that's how it works on snowbank

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.
