Lowrance 5200c GPS

Question

Griggs

I'm looking to get a GPS for my boat. This Lowrance 5200c is a color GPS only unit with 480x480 pixels. This seems like a nice unit for the price. Does anybody have any experience with this unit? Thanks.

It's essentially the same as the LMS-520c which I have two of and they are nice little units. I too was going to buy a GPS only unit (5200) but figured I could swap the 520's around if one happened to die and I needed a sonar, so I bought the second 520 instead of the GPS only unit.

I really like my 520's and the screen is very bright, clear, and easy to read. They do the job well for the money and don't see why the 5200 would be any different.

I have had quite a few problems with my 5200c.

I have had to replace the puck 2 times and my last time out i got the dreaded "GPS not responding" again. I am afraid i am going to be on my 3rd LGC-3000 puck. It did start working again after i ran my big motor...but i had 12.9 volts the whole time on the battery so i dont know what the heck is going on?

Very strange problems with this unit.

      My opinion no. Nest maybe but time will tell.

      Don I'm surprised as how much the river sections are opening up. Checked from the 71 bridge towards Cold Spring and there's actually a bunch of open sections. Noticed the honey hole area, in the rivers mouth entering cedar island is really going quick also. Definitely looking better for a possible ice out on the lakes on the chain. Time will tell

      went out tonight and found between 24 to 28 inches of ice away from the current areas.    The river is now poking into shoe about 100 yards.   Don

      Great Time today! We didn't put the slam to them  but boy did I enjoy the day. I know I did a lot  more relaxing and jaw jacking today then fishing LOL! But after as many days as I have spent on the ice my  thought process lately has been been there done that this winter,   so really didn't go at it to hard.   My Ice season is comeing to a end and today I was alright with that.  It was a day of laughs, great eats and some serious relaxation among a great group of guys. I know I wish I would of put some sunscreen on the face wow Hot tomato LOl! Bet Joe is hurting also he looked a little pink mid day. Thanks Royce, Rick G , Joe and his father for the good times., we have  done a few of these mini get togehter's this winter and I believe our friendships have grown stronger everytime we share the ice together.  Looking forward to possibly another outing if not open water is just around the corner
