LowranceNET

Question

bklimek

What can you tell me if anything about their networking system? My main question is if I run a lowrance at the console and one at the bow if I enter a waypoint into any of those units will it automatically transfer to the other?

The software versions in existence when the LowranceNET came out would not share waypoints, but the updated software versions that are out there now (download from their website) allow you the option to set a waypoint and have it show up on the other units on the network. It works with waypoints, it does not work with icons.

What he said. Ask away with any questions, someone should have answers. I almost think that there should be a forum just for lowrance electronics. There are enough of us who run them and we always have questions.

On the later software versions, there is a waypoint sharing box (under one of the menu options) that must be checked on both unit that are networked.

How does one go about downloading software from the net and transferring it to your unit?

You can do it 2 ways. First, you could call lowrance and have you ship out the latest version on a card and put it into your unit. I think they may charge you for this, because so many were not being returned to them. Or you can go to the lowrance website under support/downloads. And download the current version onto a SD/MMC card. You should check the current version of your software first and use a blank card for the best results. The process is described in detail on their website.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok..I got it wired directly to the motor battery. 12.44 bolts to the plug. Good. Unit powers on like normal. All is well until I get it on the water. Only question.. since there's power going non stop to that plug. Do I risk draining the battery? I take the unit off when I trailer the boat. 12.44 volts

      I'd be surprised if the lake is entirely open by Opener. I almost needed at auger extension eight days ago when I was up there.
