Hi someone gave me one of this and everything works perfect except when i turn it on it says MEMORY battery LOW???? i have replaced the regular batteris but i dont know where or how to replace the memory batteries. I know its old but it was free and i got used to its simplicity. I was wondering if i i can upgrade it with memory cards or anything like that. Primarily my question is how can i put in a new memory batter

Google Garmin and go to the FAQ. Here is what I found...

Question: What do I do when my unit displays a 'Low Memory Battery' message?

Answer:

If this message is received on the Garmin device, it will need to be repaired. The GPS device will need to be returned to Garmin so the internal memory battery can be replaced. Please click here to contact Garmin Product Support to set up the repair.

Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

Yup have one. Still occasionally get the same message. As DSlayer said, Garmin will give you a return auth number and you can send it in to get it replaced. I never did get mine sent in, fresh batteries seem to clear the alarm. If you have the serial/car cable for that unit, back up all your waypoints and tracks with your map software so in the event the battery does die all is not lost. Good unit, can't wait to save up for the new 'map & image' types out there.

      The ice was very crystallized last night but still 20+ inches.

      Drifter, I hope you are right about having more open water than ice.  Was looking more closely at the average ice out dates maintained by the DNR. The avg dates for the lakes that dot the southern most part of the state are approximately one month ahead of the lakes that dot the northern part of the state like Burnt, Kab, and Vermilion.  As of this morning, none of those lakes in the southern part of the state are ice out.  Are we still a month away from open water on V then?  God I hope not, but the math isn’t helping me feel confident.

      I heard there is open water in the oak narrows by Timbuktu marina!!

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.

      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.

      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.

      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.
