Navionics chip problem?

Question

sparkyaber

My neighbor has started playing with his new Navionics chip, an the only way that his lowrance will recognize it is to open the tray, pull it out just a touch, (or all the way for that matter) and reinstall the tray. Every time he turns the unit on, he has to physically remove the chip and replace it for his lcx-25c to recognize that it is in.

At first glance, I thought it was his lowrance, but we switched chips, and my chip worked like a champ in his boat, and with his chip my boat, I was experiencing the same problem as he was.

Any ideas?

Thanks

do you both have the same chip or do you have the lakemasters chip? most of the new navionics chips when put into the lowrance product have to be reconized by you phyically telling the graph to see it..this is because the navionics chip has several regions on it and you have to enter in which region you want to view..should be a place in the map data section that you can tell the unit which region you want to enter..just like a computer you have to highlight that area and hit enter for it to see it..

Yeah, forgot to post that. We both have the navionics chip. I did have to pick the regions originally, when ever I turned my unit on, it will automatically go back to the same region. Across the street we picked a region, turned the unit off, turned it back on, no Navionics, opened the tray, removed and then replaced chip, Navionics showed up, with the region we had chosen earlier.

It might be a default in the chips design. If you don't see any defects consider contacting Navionics and see what they say. Might have to trade in the bad chip.

That is kinda what I thought. Just hoped there was an easy explanation.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
