10 posts in this topic

I've been looking & now have pulled the pin and ordered my H2Oc with a Navionics 07 Hot Map chip.

Does anyone have any tips or hints about bateries or cases or whatever?

I would get the new Rechargable Duracell Batteries. Buy the charger and throw away the batteries that come with it. Get the more expensive duracell rechargable batteries and use the charger you bought to recharge. You will not be disapointed.

I ran into the same deal with my digital camera.I was going through batteries like crazy ,so I got some very good rechargeables that last.

I figured there was a thread somewhere.I did a search and nothing came up .

I bought the external power cable to use in the boat. That way I can keep the light on the H2O on all the time when I need to. Really like the unit with the MN Lake Master chip. All the roads and all are a bonus.

Good Luck,

NIck

I use mine on the boat 90 percent of the time so I use the cigarette lighter power adapter. At work I use rechargeable AA's, got some at walmart for about 15 bucks, 4 batteries and a charger that recharges in 4 hours. I too have found already that I need the light on during the day to see it.....enjoy your gps, it is an amazing piece of technology

It won't float unless you have lithium ion batteries in it.

I'm all over agreeing with the Duracell rechargeables - I have like 8 of them so I always have at least two sets completely charged but have never needed to even change batteries in a single day and I leave it on all day on the water.

Don;t leave it on seat and put stuff on top of it - I did that recently and must have compressed some buttons because it had set like 500 waypoints on one spot when I picked it up...was a brain drain to delete 'em all.

Fun tip that I don't think is in the handbook - repeatedly pressing the "Exit" button radily will bring up a speedometer screen.

Have fun with it!

Daze Off

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.
    • h8go4s
      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
