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!

      Ace (or anyone for that matter), have you been able to pinpoint the conditions that bring the big smallies up shallow in the fall?  Water temp perhaps?  Moon phase? A bait connection?  We saw this happen by chance a couple of years ago, which resulted in some very large smallies coming over the rails.  Didn’t weigh the biggest but my guess was 6lbs+.     Just trying to to see if this shallow movement can be predicted.    Brian

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.

      Yeah, I wouldn’t be making this treck until next June. I heard from another source that it’s navigable as well, as long as water levels are normal. Thanks for the info.

      @gimruis   I’ve been accused of having too much patience many times.   My duck hunting buddy talked about people’s differing personalities and how we didn’t understand why fellow hunters weren’t more considerate.  We settled on the fact that we’ve been trained to be that naive from working in the hospitality/service industry too long! 😀   Still loving the hunting but have to change our expectations a bit

      up here on webb lake right now... anyone have any tips or suggestions?!

      Instead of going through all the hassle of mounting it in your boat before you knows if it's good. You may try duct taping the ducer to a stick to hang over the side and run some power wires to it.   You should know pretty fast if it works or not by making a few knob adjustments. Good Luck.

      Orchard in Lakeville has a good population of tiger's.

      I know this....not as many smallmouth coming up shallow on this fall trip as compared to spring. Could not get a top water bite regardless of time of day and depth of water.   Found a few stragglers in the few hours we chased them.
