Lowrance GPS ?

2 posts in this topic

I recently downloaded the annual update (2.1) for my Lowrance Global Map 4800. Now, I cannot get the ground speed to show up on my overlay.

I called Lowrance and the guy argued that my unit never was able to show speed on my overlay. I do have a "closing speed" available for my overlay, but I am almost positive that I was looking at ground speed in the past.

My buddy has the Eagle Version (Eagle 480) GPS which is essentially the same unit and he has the abilty to display ground speed on his overlay. I wonder what the deal is?

Speed is a very important factor while trolling. It would suck to not have it!

ANY IDEAS??

I assume you have a paddle wheel for the water speed and GPS for ground speed too? I've seen this problem posted elsewhere....I'll see if I can dig it up unless someone beats me to it.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.

      Very weird. Those little worms in the garden do catch more than little 2-4 sunfish.
