Navionics chip problem?

5 posts in this topic

My neighbor has started playing with his new Navionics chip, an the only way that his lowrance will recognize it is to open the tray, pull it out just a touch, (or all the way for that matter) and reinstall the tray. Every time he turns the unit on, he has to physically remove the chip and replace it for his lcx-25c to recognize that it is in.

At first glance, I thought it was his lowrance, but we switched chips, and my chip worked like a champ in his boat, and with his chip my boat, I was experiencing the same problem as he was.

Any ideas?

Thanks

do you both have the same chip or do you have the lakemasters chip? most of the new navionics chips when put into the lowrance product have to be reconized by you phyically telling the graph to see it..this is because the navionics chip has several regions on it and you have to enter in which region you want to view..should be a place in the map data section that you can tell the unit which region you want to enter..just like a computer you have to highlight that area and hit enter for it to see it..

Yeah, forgot to post that. We both have the navionics chip. I did have to pick the regions originally, when ever I turned my unit on, it will automatically go back to the same region. Across the street we picked a region, turned the unit off, turned it back on, no Navionics, opened the tray, removed and then replaced chip, Navionics showed up, with the region we had chosen earlier.

It might be a default in the chips design. If you don't see any defects consider contacting Navionics and see what they say. Might have to trade in the bad chip.

That is kinda what I thought. Just hoped there was an easy explanation.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
