Lowrance LMS-522C iGPS/Sonar Combo

6 posts in this topic

I'm thinking about buying a Lowrance LMS-522C iGPS/Sonar Combo. Does anyone have one? I'd like to know what you think about it? Are they worth the money? Can I use my LakeMaster and Navionics with it?

I bought one of these this year and have limited use but it has worked well. I have the LM 07 chip and it works fine, and it should also work with the Navionics. I also have had no problems with the internal GPS, it even works in my garage. I know the previous generation of these (lms-332) did have some problems with the iGPS but so far so good for me.

Hope this helps,

John

Thanks John. One other question I have. Does it show speed??

Yes they will show GS or ground speed. You just have to turn it on in the overlay data menu.

The 332 does not have an internal GPS antenna and has had very few problems with aquiring a satellite signal compared to the 334's.

There are some people still having problems aquiring a satellite signal with the 334.

Hopefully the New 522 doesn't have those issues only time will tell.

My bad. I meant 334. Too many numbers to remember

      I just checked the cedar Island Access there was about two-and-a-half to three inches of ice

      Took a drive around the lake today. The only open water I saw was in the middle out from Holiday Resort. Rest of the lake was covered with ice. When I got home I went out to check the ice thickness in front of my place. Went out about 5 feet from shore and chopped a hole with the spud bar. Measured 2 inches of ice with my measuring stick. Went out to about 15 feet from shore, chopped another hole and measured just a hair under 2 inches. Went out another 5 feet and brushed away the snow with my boot as I had done with the other holes. Hit the ice with the spud bar and all I could hear was cracking going off in every direction. Retreated to the shore. Going to give it a couple of days and check again. Hope we don't get that snow for Saturday night and Sunday.

      Check craigslist see if there are any boats like yours on there. If so how much are they asking.
