New Lowrance Updates

Question

FishinFreaks

Saw that Lowrance put out new updates yesterday. Not sure if I want to go ahead get the new update for my LMS520. As I'm reading what is included in the update, it doesn't seem that Lowrance has addressed the sonar problems so many of us talked about this summer - mainly the inability of the unit to read depth in weeds when using version 1.4.0. I just got 1.3.0 installed, and am very happy with how it's working, but I also know that Lowrance does these updates so the GPS and other features work properly. Should we try this new update or not? Here's what they say the update does:

What changes are made in this update?

* Modified backlighting properties

* Improved ethernet stability

* Moved the Cancel Navigation menu item to the top of the system menu

* Many modifications to radar settings and features

* Modified SD/MMC data storage properties

* Added support for HDM NMEA0183 sentence

* Improved Navionics card support

* Added sonar sharing over ethernet

* Includes all features from previous updates, including:

o Modified Auto-Sensitivity feature

o Modified memory card reading functionality

o Enhanced Navionics support

o Enhanced NauticPath electronic chart support

o Enhanced sonar noise detection

What does everyone think? I know it says "enhanced sonar noise detection", but that is from previous updates, which we know weren't working.

I'd say it's worth a shot only if you still have a hard copy of the older version in case you have similar issues as before. Last year I just wanted to fix the time change issue and I was kicking around the idea of adding a second sonar to network them. Lots of headaches later, Iffwalleyes got me a copy of the older version and got me back on track.

      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

      Never heard of that in all my years! They look delicious! I take my dad to Rainy Lake ever June for his birthday and do a nice shore lunch. Walleye wings will be on the menu this year! Thanks for the thread!

      What do y’all think a week from now? Will Duluth be fishable from the boat. A lot of ice around right now. Might have to wait yet rather stay around Duluth than drive another half hour to two harbors.

      Will Green be ice free for Govenors opener?

      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Scaled n skin on after gut n de-head. Wash n batter n sizzle. Fork at Dorsel n whole fillet falls onto plate or butter bun or hounds mouth. : ). Mmmmm sooo good.      I dream melt ice at Nine inches per week starting today -  Pike bay be open day before opener clear out to Marauderville. Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles. Maybe weekend after opener?  All good but just miss our lil chunk of paradise x million. An lake friends n nuts.  Think warm thinks!  Thanks for letting me post some n butt in on threads a bit. Still two feet of snow here n same ice an nothing to do outside easy.  Peace...     T
