H2O Won't initialize/find current position

Question

tunrevir

I was up to Mille Lacs a couple weeks ago and shut off my h2o on the way home. Turned it on yesterday and it was "stuck" up on Mille Lacs and wouldn't lock on to my current position. I scrolled down and set a waypoint near where I was at on the lake and hit find and it still wouldn't lock in. Can't find the manual right now either. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks.

You could try using the "initialize GPS" option to help it home in on your current location. I believe you select "initialize GPS" and then move the cursor using the arrow keys to close to where you are at and then hit enter. This will help it pinpoint your current location quicker rather than looking for the spot where it was turned off. Otherwise if you leave it turned on long enough it will eventually lock in to your position. Leaving it stationary helps too when it's searching.

Also make sure when you have your unit on to be in a location with a clear view of the sky. This always helps in tracking.

Thanks guys for your responses, I ended up finding the manual and working through things. I was having trouble getting to the initialize page and didn't know how to get things restarted but luckily, I found the manual and was able to get things back online. I ended up going to the initialize screen after I had entered my home address. after a few short minutes the darn thing reformatted and I was again in business. I had it on for about 2 hours yesterday while I was on ice and it did not hook up. Normally it will initialize within about a minute or less so I was a bit confounded. Thanks for your input and support! Greatly appreciated!

      Just booked our first LOTW winter trip this week. Interesting and funny😂 reading this thread. I thought the price for a long weekend was a bit steep, but like others have said, it's guys trip so we will be paying per person. I can fully understand the family angle.   Thanks for the laughs!

      Not sure, leech~~. But her health may have a play into it, as about the time he was rebuilding our place, he started just after Labor Day 2013, she had a major accident while riding 1 of her horses. The horse landed on her & crushed her hips, so bad they said she was lucky to be alive & were afraid she'd never walk again.  Her not being around to do his paperwork actually caused some issues with some of the other sub-contractors at out place. Many surgeries later ,with them having to come down to Mayo for the last, she seems to be able to get by.  I agree to in that I think the business would be easier to sell with the bar & restuarant too. Another issue is that all her good help has had to find different work & would be very hard to replace. Know there's quite a few people  that are  still hoping they rebuild.

      FYI May have been mentioned before but just in case, there is a ridge running from Gold Island towards Breezy Point in Frazer bay as well.

      Still waiting for the fire marshal to determine cause. They are working on a plan but can’t knock it down until the fire marshal lets them

      Fished West end Sat AM, typical result.... NADA!  There is a huge pressure ridge running across Wake'em'up bay, across Center Island all the way into Norwegian Bay.  Also one out in H'O'L bay. Use caution out there!

      I fished 3 different lakes in the area this last weekend, and they all seemed to have a consistent 8-10" of ice.  I don't have any info on Pelican, but I would have to assume about the same out there.  I saw some ATVs and snowmobiles out on Pelican driving by it on Sunday.

      The last I heard, they are planning on rebuilding the store and shooting to have it open by fishing opener 2019.  We'll see if that happens or not.  I'm sure the red tape with the insurance companies is a mile long, so getting to the point or rebuilding could take some time.

      The second weekends is in the books. For now it looks like we dodged a bullet with the pressure ridge not becoming active from the 46 degree day Saturday. Hillmens is    asking to  drive extra slow.  Our grand daughter Ashly was up with Davon and our great grandson Bentley.  Pretty cool as Bentley got to reel in a fish making him  the 7th generation of our family to wet a line on such a grand lake.    Because of all the flooding around the houses and the slower fishing Jonny boy and I put here in high gear and proceeded to move most of the fleet on sunday.  It was a good test as we moved California, montana ,florida,. north Dakota and Kentucky. Plus reset them and got all the guest back fishing.  The fishing could of been better, but it always slows down when all the skids houses and traffic hit the lake.  Yesterday we moved montana and north Carolina out deeper where Jonny boy was going to spend the night. I was dragging but around 3pm but did get a second wind aftera hot shower, I got back out on the lake as the sun was setting. Again another spectacular sunset was my reward for a hard days work.  Were going to move old Minnesota and north Dakota today as we push out deeper.  Just like every year we will drive over a million fish looking for the mother load

      6” near middle with expanding ice heave and open water.  Be careful and don’t try to cross, it’s been shifting and unstable.
