NMEA not responding...What does this mean?

6 posts in this topic

Plugged in my Lowrance global map 2000 and turned it on and the message" NMEA not responding" comes up on the screen. What do I have to do to solve this problem?

If you just hooked up your GPS and it has an external antenna, I'm pretty sure it means the antenna isn't getting power so check your connections.

Im not familiar with the 2000 but on my lcx 18 it was no power to the nmea cord. there 3 wires on mine for the nmea power. a red (+) a black(-) and a sheild (-). I hooked them up and all was well! If yours uses the lowrancenet connectors there needs to be a power source for it also!

If you have a T connector, or any other type connectors, make sure that none of the unused ends are capped with the specific fuse available from lowrance.

The 2000 is an older unit so not network thing going on. I hitched it up the same way I always have, havent monkeyed with any wires at all. depth unit still fires up and works fine just the GPS doesnt respond

Have you checked all associated fuses / in line fuses?

There's a chance you puck has it's own inline fuse, depending on the installation...

      Sorry I forgot to put their phone #.  218-385-3385. Ask for Dan or Bonnie.   Hope this helps.

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
