Lowrance help


Deemo

Question

Picked up a X-15 this winter and this was the first weekend with it on the water. The thing worked ok about half the time. The rest of the it would show crazy depth readings. We were in about 20 to 25ft moving pretty slow and the finder read in the hundreds of feet. Once it went over a thousand feet deep! The screen also froze a few times.

Turning the unit off and restarting it didnt cut it for me. This also happened when we were anchored in 12ft of water no wind.

The dealer installed it. Even if it wasnt a great install it should still get a reading sitting still wouldnt you think? Any ideas?

A friend of mine got a lowrance also and it wouldnt read temp. and had to be returned. should i take it back and try a different one? Thanks

I am not an expet but I do know if your ducer isnt positioned properly these things could occur. Good luck!!

I would take it back,my X85 has never given me any problems.The ducer being located correctly has a good deal to do with the depth reading but it shoud stay consistant if not moved.If it is jumping around on you there may well be some thing wrong with the unit.
If the store won't take it back try fish electronics for help.They are in Hill Top off central avenue.

if the screen is freezing that is not a good sign at all. That is pretty serious, I would bring it back too.

I agree with the others. Check the angle position of the transducer and make sure it matches what the manual says. I also us the X-15 and at first I got the same type of readings until I changed that angle. Now the depth is precise. However I am struggling wiht the GPS not responding. I have spoke to Lowrance three times and they cant seem to isolate the problem. Seems intermittent. I am trying one more time this wee and if she doesnt work, then the units goes in for inspection and repair.

Got a hold of lowrance. They are sending me a new transducer. Also said to reboot the unit. If this will not do it its going back to the store.

      I think property management is more about communication than real estate as it requires regular interaction with property owners, tenants and staff. To create a base of loyal customers and ensure future growth in a competitive market, I recommend ordering the development of a mobile application fromhttps://djangostars.com/industries/proptech-real-estate/. Because managing a large real estate company that has been on the market for over 20 years can be a headache if you don't have the right software to manage it.

      Buying and selling, renting residential areas include many long-term labor-intensive processes. It is easy to optimize, speed up these operations - it is enough to order the creation of a mobile application for real estate.

      This is the right decision, because such software will allow her to work less and more conveniently. Therefore, find its own developers. In your city, if it is large, you can find such a team, if not, then on the Internet

      don't know what roulette is? Hi. Roulette as I think is a very cool game. Roulette has been played since the nineteenth century and every self-respecting casino, including online casinos, be sure to have it in their assortment https://aolbroadband.in/ .Games for free, which the guys provide on this site, of course, include the most popular varieties of roulette: American, European and French. The online version of roulette is no different from the well-known one from land-based casinos: it features a green table with marked numbers and betting fields, as well as a wheel with numbered cells on which the ball rotates. On this site you can learn more and even play it

      In addition to to Feichao, you can also consider the DJI Mini SE. This is also an excellent piece. However, always try to read articles and thorough reviews before buying.

      Mini drones like Feichao Mini Drone Quadcopter M9 are good to take footage.

      My grandmother is a very old person, and she has had a real estate company for 20 years now, she has dedicated her whole life to it, so she does not understand much about technology and is looking to modernize her business, she is one of the few real estate companies that They don't have their own application, so I see myself in charge of finding a good software developer for real estate and that type of business. Do you know any professional or company that is dedicated to it?

      Don't forget about IP Lures just west of town about 2 miles on the south side of Co. 82.    I was out on Osakis last week for a couple hours. Picked up two walleyes, one about 13" and the other a fat 14-1/2". Also a couple northerns and a handful of perch.

      Of course, you shouldn’t even ask about this, because this is the responsibility of the executor of the order, that is, the employee who will create such an application. I think it will be stated in the contract of employment if there is one and then you don't have to ask for anything.
