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.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.

      I just went through it. Now my pup is a giant lab, but it is fitting. There is a lot of knowledge here with raising pups. Just ask and you will get great help

      I've tried to look for the source of this supposed information that the crayfish in Vermilion are high in mercury and same as the others - found nothing but stories like this on forums, etc...  In fact, I've typically found posts from someone on different forums, same name with that story.  In those cases, they state they talked to "someone" at the DNR in Tower who gave them that information...  roughly dating back to 2002-2005 time frame.   I'd like to think if this were actually true, there would be some data for the public to see to support it...   In the meantime, we catch em and boil them up every year.  Good eating when done right!  We figure we eat them once or twice a year, shouldn't be an issue...
