Lowrance H20 "Man Overboard"

Question

Hemlock

Does anyone know how to get rid of the "man overboard" icon on my gps? I'm not sure if it's coming up when I hit enter two times to save a waypoint, or what's causing it...I would love to clear them off, and turn that "feature" off.

Thanks.

I don't know what creates the man overboard waypoint... it's a double push of something... possibly pushing the waypoint button twice?

Anyway, all it does is create a waypoint in your waypoint list... go into your list and delete them...

If you are in EASY mode and continously making new MOB points it will erase the previos MOB that you had made, but when you switch over to ADVANCED mode all the MOB's you made in EASY mode will now show up on the screen. By switching to and staying in advanced mode you shouldn't get any more of the "sailors" on your screen unless you do it on purpose.

To Activate the MOB waypoint you simultaneously push in zout and zin

Hemlock did you go to college in c-town? If you did you'll know what i mean by c-town.

I believe the "Man Overboard" is created by pushing "Z in" and "Z out" at the same time.

I had the same problem and somehow managed to get rid of all those MOB points and turn the blasted feature off - when I get home and have a few minutes I'll grab the unit and see if I can remember how I did it.

I do know this much - I hardly ever use the unit in Easy Mode anymore.

Yep that is how all the lowrance units are. To get rid of it you highlight the MOB icon and I believe hit the wpt button and you can delete it. If it isn't the WPT button then it is the enter button and you can delete it.

Things are going well, I'm trying figure out how to strictly make a living at fishing but so far all attempts have failed and i have to work. I've been wanting to plan a trip up to your area for some fishing, i'm just not sure whether i'd rather go in the summer or winter, i'll get it figured out and maybe you'll even be around to show me where they're bitin. smile.gif

Ok Gentleman I have a similar question for you all regarding the H20C. I have deleted many different waypoints. However when I go into my recent find menu, I have a list of things going back to when I first started putzing with the thing. Even though it isn't saved in my current waypoint list, I have them listed in my recent finds. How can I get rid of all that crap that I don't want. It won't give me an option to delete it when I highlight it in the recent find menu. Any suggestions?

You guys know you can change symbols right? Go into the waypoint info on your gps, where you get options like "Edit Name", "find on map", "Go to",etc...at the bottom of the screen. I dont have mine with me right now so I cant walk you through it, but there is an option within those menus that will let you change the symbol. I'm guessing that's the problem you are having, every time you save a waypoint it saves it as the "man overboard" symbol. When you change it to an "X" for instance, every waypoint you save after that will save as an "X" on your map. But you can go in later and change it to whatever you want.

I think that's it Farley. I'll take a look at that tonight when I get home. Thanks!

Zach, it's tough to make a living fishing. That's why I bought a business. crazy.gif At least I'm my own boss, and can get away if I want to.

Anytime up here is great. Ice fishing, or spring/summer/fall. The walleyes are abundant, and the beer is cold! grin.gif

      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Scaled n skin on after gut n de-head. Wash n batter n sizzle. Fork at Dorsel n whole fillet falls onto plate or butter bun or hounds mouth. : ). Mmmmm sooo good.      I dream melt ice at Nine inches per week starting today -  Pike bay be open day before opener clear out to Marauderville. Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles. Maybe weekend after opener?  All good but just miss our lil chunk of paradise x million. An lake friends n nuts.  Think warm thinks!  Thanks for letting me post some n butt in on threads a bit. Still two feet of snow here n same ice an nothing to do outside easy.  Peace...     T

      Wakemup, I also like them scaled and the skin crispy but hate all of those scales every where so I fillet them with no skin. Cliff I have not heard any news about the City Auto Glass. Pike Bay will be open to fishing. Ice being off of it will be close! Cliff

      Two additional open-house meetings are scheduled in the Twin Cities metro area to help people understand and ask questions about Minnesota’s draft statewide deer management plan. “We heard from some who wanted open-house meetings closer to home in the metro area, so we added two to the other ones in the lineup,” said Leslie McInenly, acting wildlife populations and programs manager with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Here is the schedule for the metro area meetings: St. Paul, Monday, April 23, DNR Headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road. Richfield, Monday, April 30, Wood Lake Nature Center, 6710 Lake Shore Drive. These meetings are in addition to 35 others in which Wildlife staff will provide handouts explaining the deer plan and process, and will talk with attendees individually and in small groups. The DNR is taking online public comments on the new plan now through Wednesday, May 9, at mndnr.gov/deerplan. There will be paper copies of the questionnaire available at the open houses for those who are not able to complete it online. All meetings are scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and people can arrive anytime during the two-hour time frame. There will be no formal presentation at the meetings. Minnesota’s new deer plan sets a new statewide harvest target, increases citizen participation in deer management, and outlines ways to keep the population and habitat healthy. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Has anyone heard what they'll do about the City Auto Glass walleye tourney if the ice isn't off by May 19? Even if the ice is off....will they close Pike Bay?
