Lowrance 520c Issue?

Question

Giant_Jackpot

When running a 520c in split screen mode (sonar/GPS), when the unit is powerd off and then on again, shouldn’t the screen come back up in the same configuration as it was when it was powered off? I have a friend that has a 520c and we both thought the settings should stay the same after power off but his always comes back up with just the GPS screen. Is there a setting we are missing or is this just the way it is?

Mine does the same thing. I believe that you need to set it to the screen you would like each time you turn it on.

All my units do that too and I wish it would go to sonar.

Haven't seen anything in the menus that allows you to set your preference screen.

My 332s do that also, I believe it is something new after the latest update but I don't know for sure. Funny how the little things like that get so (Contact Us Please) annoying.

PJ,

You are probably correct about this being caused by the latest updates. Another friend runs two 332c units and both of his stay where he left them after powering off/on. They are last years models and knowing him, I doubt he has done any updates. Hard to believe that Lowrance does not consider this an issue since you can save your other sonar settings like auto sensitivity off etc. Grrrrrrrrrrrrr…………

GJ-

You are not missing anything. It's the latest and greatest software (in new locators too) from Lowrance. crazy.gif My 25C never did this until I uploaded 1.7 software.

Hopefully Lowrance will bring out a new software soon, because I would really like to see the bottom 20' of water and weeds too.

I am also finding that some of my network settings are changing when I power off the units. Very annoying.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!

      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.
    • eyeguy 54
      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL
