Marcum LX-3 question


G_man

Question

I have a question about my Marcum. I've read the directions and still have a question after using it several times.

Here is the scenario: When I turn on the Zoom mode (5' or 10' window) and push the down button until the bottom edge of the zoom window stripe (shown on the right side) is at or just below the bottom of the lake shown; the bottom on the zoom (left) side of the display is in the 6 o'clock position. According to the directions and to what other knowledgable users have told me, the bottom of the lake in the zoom mode should be at the 12 o'clock position.

Am I doing something wrong or is my unit goofy? Honestly, I might like it better this way, because it is more like the FL-18, but I want to know if my $400 unit has a flaw or not...

The bottom shows close to the 6 o'clock position for both halves.

Thinking about Medicine Lake on Thursday night after work (4:30pm-ish). The normal spots aren't producing well this year, so I need to get out and chase them. I'm hoping the temps will permit this, otherwise I have one more GPS point to check-out before I am back to simply hitting the map. You'd be more than welcome to join me.

As far as the Marcum issue goes. I remember reading in the directions that the display is supposed to go clockwise, including in the zoom mode. I also remember out on Linwood when I saw the unit performing this way, and since then, I haven't been able to reproduce that. I don't have a problem with the way my unit is performing per my previous description, but I am just curious to know if my unit is performing how it is supposed to in case anything else ever comes up.

Right side reads normal(clockwise) 12 o'clock is surface and 6 o'clock is bottom.

Left side zoom reads counter clockwise.
12 o'clock is top and 6 o'clock is button or lowest point set in the water column you've selected.

      Every year more and more people come to IT because it is really the technology of the future, but still it is worth knowing what is in demand now, you can find it in this article https://computools.com/automotive-retail/ the sphere is described in great detail and why you need to be a software engineer!

      Hello!)  I love playing minecraft.  From early childhood, I understood that this is just the best game, but the game became unrealistic after I installed the super mod https://99minecraft.com/mods/weee-flowers-mod-1-12-2-1-7-10/  !!!!! It will help everyone to make the game more interesting and cool.

      It seems that I have never had problems writing essays. And here it was necessary to write residency personal statement editing. I realized that it would not be possible to cope with such a document, I decided to take the help of professionals and all the problems disappeared.

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves

      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.
