LMS 240 & Vexilar


MNUser

Question

Here is a question for those of running these units.

I have both running on my boat. The LMS 240 has not been able to hold contact with the bottom. It does one of these numbers....58' then starts counting down till it gets to 1.6 then it flashes and resets. Then it will read 45' and start the whole process again. It seems to just pick a depth and then start the count down. I tried it with the Vex off and it still ran goofy.

Lowrance has been great and has offered to fix it. The GPS works great. I'm starting to think it may be the Vex but I see others running both units.

Has anybody else experienced this?

Thanks!

JIM

I run a a Vexilar next to my Lowrance X-75. Once in a great while there is interference, but most of the time not. The transducers are right next to each other, and each have different frequencies.

I've never seen it "countdown" like that before. I think the Lowrance needs some TLC.

If I had to say, I think you need a new transducer for the LMS. Everytime my 350a needed a new transducer it would flash strange depths. Does it show bottom on the graph portion? Or is it just broken up lines? If it's broken up lines and no solid bottom, you need a new transducer.

Funny that you say that Chris. I'm on my second transducer. Lowrance set me a new one about 6 months go. I will have to check how it "sees" the bottom next time I'm out. I'm always using the Vex cause I have faith in it....

Thanks for the heads up.

      If your company is very large and has many employees, you will have to hire a professional company that is specifically dedicated to that, since a single professional will not be able to do everything, in the google search bar you can find many, but if someone here can recommend you one that has used it as much as possible is much better, good luck to your company and to you!

      BW is not a designated Trout lake. The limit is the same as state which I think is 5 bows. Don't think there is a size limit either since they don't breed.

      Rotes, Hi, I just joined this forum and these corner caps are just what I have been looking for. Is it possible at this late date to get a set of these made for my Lund? The only difference I can see is the color of the material. Would you be willing to make a set for me? Thanks, [email protected]

      Any move requires time and effort, but if you turn to a moving company for help, then some of the problems will disappear immediately. Firstly, the guys from the moving services always take care of the client's property, pack and carefully transfer your things to the car. Secondly, when moving with movers, you do not have to worry about the road, they choose the fastest and safest way, as they have extensive experience in transportation.

      Anybody know how much the lake temps have dropped?   Are people have the most success with minnows vs crawlers when fishing with live bait lately, or are crawlers still working?

      Snuck out last night, water Temps down to 54-56, last Thurs mid 60s. Fish were finicky. Leaves are changing quickly here, lots falling. Two weeks should be a lot better in the woods

      I agree with the previous comment, you could save a lot of money by making your website first .. its design .. and then if you want to move .. but if you want, you can immediately ..-) look here: https://digitalsuits.co/hire-developers/hire-shopify-developers/

      I think that even at the initial stage, you need to consult with specialists who have been working in this field for a long time .. and then you will really get the result .. otherwise you can spend a lot of time and in the end you will have to redo everything .. for example, look here: https://www.softformance.com/services/software-consulting-company/
