Eagle and Lakemaster, life was until... is installed, won't go to the


MSRiverdog

Question

I loaded the Eagle 1.6 upgrade into my FishElite 642C iGPS, now the unit locks when the Lakemaster card is installed and won't leave the splash screen and complete the power up, unless I pull the card, wait for the unit to start and then push in the LakeMaster card back in the slot. Any body have an answer, the best I've gotten so far was a guy at Cabela's telling me to never use the upgrade software unless it was really needed.

did it work ok before the new update? if it did, det it back to the old version. I have the 500c and after putting in 1.9 I had issues of the screen freezing up. reset it back to 1.6 or 1.7 i believe and has been great ever since.

Worked fine until I installed update number one. If there was a way to get it back to 1.2, I think that came on it, I'ld do it in a second. The first software "upgrade" was 1.3 last year and that was short on a few spots mapping wise, screen positioning I think. I loaded 1.6 this year because I thought that was the fix. Boy was I wrong. Calling CS at Eagle is the longest on hold time of any company I have ever dealt with.

here is how to do a hard reset on your unit..

1- turn unit off

2- press and hold zin & zout keys at the same time

3- press and hold power key

4- release both buttons when full map screen appears

I tried em all, only differance is the GPS lock is a heck of a lot faster than it was before the hard reset. It's a software problem I'm guessing that requires me to send it to Eagle unless there's some other stuff out there that will revert it back to the beginning. Thanks for trying.

Unlucky me.....exact same problem here - and I came to the board to try to find help. Any resolve yet MSRiverdog?

I am going to try to get Eagle to email me the old software version.

Just this year, I started getting problems with losing GPS signal a lot - and the upgrade was supposed to help that. I guess maybe it would, but my GPS isn't so great if I don't have a nice map to go with it!

Chiming in as another person with this issue. I'm using a Lowrance LMS334Ci.

Happened after I updated my software from 1.6.0 to 1.7.0. Was attempting to solve the loss of signal issue, ended with GPS signal loss (Pretty rarely), sonar occasionally gets garbled up, and this issue.

Note to self... Don't update software :P

I think the note should really be to Lowrance.

DONT RELEASE HARDWARE UNTIL THE SOFTWARE IS ROCK SOLID!

Nobody should have to put up with this. nobody.

Good luck on the software, they were supposed to send it to me last year after update number one, they didn't. If you succeed please send me a copy. When I saw 1.6 I thought OK, they got it right, they didn't. I reloaded the software the other day, at least now it defaults back to the last GPS screen when I turn it on, before it defaulted to the full US map, still won't complete the boot with my LakeMaster chip installed, blink's every 12 seconds like it wants to. This time I told it to upload and erase what was on it. Latest little B as in B, S as in S is that it won't let me put the guage screen up, the left side is just grey, it lets me choose them but doesn't put them up when I leave the menu. With the amount of units Lowrance/Eagle sells you would think they coud hire enough people to answer the phone and help you. SUCKS BIG TIME.

I just got an email back from Eagle .....they said to do a soft reset. I tried that before getting on here....and with the LM chip in there, you can't do it.

Still trying. If I end up with the software, I'll let you know.

Saw the same problem on a 334c using a 2006 Lakemaster chip. Put in a new 2008 version Lakemaster chip and all the problems went away. Take your unit into one of the Eagle/Lowrance retailers (Gander Mtn) and they will probably help you out and check it with the new chip on their display wall.

After hearing the problems of the sonar gps problems it leads me to beleive the best venture is to have seperate gps and sonar untill they figure out the bugs. As far as cost I dont think the cost will be a little bit more but you get reliable haslel free disruption.the fall back is spase. I will live with that

I found the thread for the direct dial number. Haven't been able to get anyone to answer, but I sent her an email. Hopefully something will work. I sent Eagle an email off their website, and the replied on the 4th of July at 1AM, telling me to do a soft reset. (Something tells me maybe their CS department that the emails go to is not in the US????)

I tried to reply to their email, and I get an undeliverable error.

Hopefully Linda can help out. Here's the link:

Riverdog!

You must be a silver-tongued (or silver-fingered?) smooth talker with Ms. Linda. Let me know what you can get......I have a hard time staying on the phone to be able to get through to these guys during normal business hours. I will be thinking twice before buying Lowrance again.

Here is the reply I got:

Dan, I am sorry, I would love to help you, however I do not have any of the older version software chips available here. They do have them in Custoemr Service, if you call them @ 1-800-324-1356 they will be happy to send you one. I wish I could help you, as I am sure that is frustrating, I have never heard of that happening.

Maybe timing was everything Red, I'll make you a copy and you can get it when you're up Champlin way. Maybe she got sick of going to CS after my post.

      Onlineessaywritingservice.review said that not all sites could be trusted. I agree with this statement. Anyone should check the modern websites they want to use.
    • millicentgill
      There should be three components in the work: the introduction, the argumentatively proved thesis, and the conclusion. There are no strict requirements for the arrangement of the components: the thesis can go to the conclusion, but the main task of the author is to ensure the logicality and integrity of the 99 papers reviews. Do not forget when using references to other people's work to mark it with appropriate references, and do not overload paragraphs - each should be marked one complete idea or argument. Introduction This is your calling card, a chance to interest the reader: with a word or phrase, a bold quote to hook and arouse curiosity, without deviating from the main thesis. Use a rough draft, because it is easier to find an interesting "hook" for the introduction while working on the essay, and then put it in the introduction. Remember the popular saying that a worthwhile thought always comes later!   Don't "pour water"; try to use words directly related to the topic of the essay. Mistakes: Blank. Applicants commit the sin of quoting popular people, telling primitive jokes, or using headlines and facts from the media that are annoying to the review committee. Such an introduction will not arouse positive emotions. Dry facts. The task of the introduction - to arouse interest: do not hesitate to be emotional, because the restrained presentation of the facts will leave the reader indifferent. Thesis When choosing a thesis statement, it should be firmly understood that it is not a scientifically proven fact or the result of conducted experiments and observations, but the main idea of the essay, which can be expressed in a few words. To be sure you have a thesis statement, imagine: the examiner put your written work aside and, without reading it, asks you what the main idea is. The two or three sentences you will need to answer are the thesis statement, a summary of the entire essay.   The topic offered in educational institutions often has different interpretations and approaches. You are not faced with the task of finding an unambiguous solution to the question posed - remember that they want to know your personal point of view, test your ability to think logically and be intellectually savvy. It is acceptable to quote from the works of any researcher or philosopher, explaining your understanding of their hypotheses and how they reflect the thesis of the paper. Prioritize unquestioned authorities: Aristotle, Einstein, Socrates, 20th century academics - do not use recent scholars, especially media darlings. Mistakes: To be or not to be? An overly philosophical approach to the problem will lead to a loss of firm ground and turn the essay into meaningless abstract reasoning. State a concrete, not too radical opinion. Argumentation There should be several reasons determining your position on the question posed: describe each of them in detail in a separate paragraph, trying to observe the semantic sequence. Do not deviate from the topic and do not forget that if the logic of the work requires it, the thesis can be placed in the last paragraph. Play on contrasts and contradictions, denote the inconsistency of the commonplace view of the subject with the scientific one, put an obstacle that is not easy to overcome. Give priority to students who not only know how to solve a problem, but also how to discern it. Mistakes: Questionable argument. Remember that the very notion of an argument implies that it is true - you should not cite someone else's speculation as evidence. Don't repeat it twice. The same idea, in other words, expressed in a different paragraph, will give the impression that there is nothing to say. Conclusion In conclusion, you should not repeat what has already been written - briefly finish your thought, write a thesis statement if you decide to leave it for last. The conclusion should be polished and elegantly summarize the previous reasoning. A good way is to share the experience of writing this particular essay: tell what proved to be the most difficult, what ideas you had to discard during your reasoning, and which ones were a revelation to you. Mistakes: New arguments. The conclusion is to summarize all of the above, this part does not imply the appearance of additional arguments: if there are still thoughts, add an additional paragraph. It will be superfluous to describe the structure and content of your work at the end - they speak for themselves. The conclusion is intended to give the reader a sense of completeness and completeness.   Related Resources: Differences between essays and other creative works Checklist for a good essay The difference between an essay and a term paper Structure of the essay

      And here is another site that I will add to the favorites list. I'm glad I found these satirical essay topics so quickly. Perhaps now I will not have to surf the web anymore.
