Chart details not appearing after removal.


Same problem I had. After resetting unit and checking CF on another unit, Raymarine tech. said, the reader is not working. All pins seems to be OK on first look. I opened unit by removing several screws in front, gasket and the whole chassis from the case. Simple repositioning of pushed down pins from inside into the Compact Flash corrected contact problem of reader. Since then, I never removed CF. It seemed, after several reinsertions of CF, I pushed down two pins in CF slot.

Try this hard reset procedure: (warning: this procedure will erase all waypoints that have been saved)

1. Turn unit off
2. Press and hold the ZIN, ZOUT, and PWR keys at the same time.
3. Release the ZIN, ZOUT, and PWR keys once the alarm "warning, do not rely..." appears.

The unit should now be out of demo mode.

Hi,when i switch on my lms-332c the map does not come up on the screen.If I remove and replace the map card it works perfectly. Can I fix this? regards nigel


I am guessing that the card you are using is a NAVIONICS chart? There have been some Lowrance units that were made around the same time that have had problems recognizing a Navionics chart right from power up.

Make sure the LMS-332 has the latest firmware version which can be downloaded from http://www.lowrance.com/en/Products/Marine/Full-Size-SonarGPS-Chartplotter-Combos/LMS-332C/Downloads/LMS-332C-Software-Update/

If the update doesn't help, this is going to be a compatibility problem with the LMS-332 and that particular card. You will need to replace the card or upgrade to a newer unit...but probably can just get used to removing and replacing the card when you turn the unit on.

You need to convert your Navnet to C-map. You can not run both on the same unit. Mid-Shore Electronics can help you out with this. Check out their website in the tech corner.

Lowrance not reading navionic


Make sure that the 5200c is set to read the Navionic card. You can set that under Map Data.

How do you get the gps to show depth and markers on the water?


It depends on what model you have. Most chartplotters require a chip with regional chart data. Most Lowrance models use Navionics charts. If you have a chip in the GPS, go to the map screen and press the "menu" key. Somewhere in the map setup menu will be a field where you can specify which chart to display.

For example a Navionics gold chart may cover the entire east coast, but it is broken down into a few sub regions. If you are boating in New England you would select the sub region labeled Northeast. Some of the earlier models didn't name the regions, they used model number for each region such as "XL904G". In that case your best bet is to try each one until you can view the charts in your area. Zoom in to 1/2 mile scale to make sure you can see charts.

If you have done all that and still can't see the chart details, there is also a setting in the map setup menu that allows you to set the level of detail. Make sure it is set to normal, more, or most. If you see a declutter setting on the setup menu, try setting it to off.
