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...

      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?

          You can keep one Walleye 13.8- 17.7 a day. With the conservation licence you can take 2 fish out with only one over 27.6. and with a sportsman licences you can take out 4 with only one over 27.6.

      Thanks All.   No big plans this weekend and and the weather has been putting a damper on outdoor projects and choirs.    Still I might sneak out for a few hours this weekend.

      In and around narrows is where most people were fishing.  Lots of fish under 14 though.

      I guess I will have to call the dnr about the couple spots I am in question of. Ones a darn and you can easily pick them off all day almost year round

      Thanks for the great report.  We fished up there all last week, and we found shiners to be the only bait we *couldn't* get bites on. Very, very strange, but by far our best bite was on crawlers.  I think our total was something like 8 fish on shiners and 80 or 90 on crawlers (between two boats).  We didn't start fishing with crawlers until Thursday, either, so all those fish came on our last two days, with the windier Thursday being best.
