SOURCE: chartplotter (Garmin 450s) won't talk to VHF DSC radio (Icom IC M

As advised, reset to factory settings. Then re-entered custom settings as required. Seems OK now. Many thanks.

My new Lowrance Hook-5 GPS isn't working, I'm a noob, how do I get this function working?


'isn't working' is such a broad problem. If it is only the GPS, it is covered from Page 49 of the manual and shows you can access Satellite information. Note, it almost certainly won't work in your garage or storage. It need to see the sky as the antennae is internal.

The unit has an installation guide. In my personal opinion, it is better to let a professional boat engineer install it, mainly for the correct fitting of the transducer on the stern. Correct placing makes all the difference to a good set up, unless you intend to fish without the engine running.

All they need is mounting, power through a fuse direct to the battery, and the transducer fitting. Then you put the boat in the water and switch it on.

How do i find water depth


Water depth should show automatically on your sonar page.
if it does not then either you have selected "stop sonar" under your sonar options or you have opted to turn off the depth displayou so the numbers don't show up.
if you areally viewing your GPS or split screen sonar/GPS page, sometimes the depth display is not visible on these pages unless you specifically instruct the unit to display it.

What are the data cable 5 wire used for and where do they get hooked up


The additional wires are for NMEA data transfer to and from other devices and sensors like distance, speed, depth, temperature and NMEA 0183 sentences the unit will use when connected to a VHF radio or other NMEA 0183 device.

The manual link below.

HDS Gens Touch shows positive red to negative & black to positive?


Lowrance may have goofed on the manual printing. RED is Positive, Black is negative. All these systems have reverse polarity protection. If you wire backwards, the screen will flash on and then automatically turn off.
I install these systems and I have always put the fuse hlder on the positive line at the battery. The fuse holders are always red wires and that may also lead to some confusion if they suggest attaching that to the black lead.
Hope this answers your question.

HAVING A PROBLEM WITH MY LOWRANCE 525C WITH EXTERNAL ANTENNA. IT KEEPS TELLING ME GPS MODULE NOT RESPONDING. I HAVE CHECKED ALL CONECTIONS AND CANNOT FIND A PROBLEM. WHAT NEXT


Make sure that you have powered the NMEA 2000 network. The display unit's power cable has a set of red, black, and sheild wires that need to be hooked up to a 12VDC power source. There is a power diagram somewhere in the manual that should show this.

Make sure that you have the NMEA 2000 network connected properly. If it is a newer version LMS-525, it should just be a single 15ft cable that has two female ends, the module plugs into one end, and the other end plugs into the back of the display.
If it came with some T connecters and 120Ohm Terminator caps, then make sure you have that hooked up correctly. There should be a diagram in the manual for that as well but you just connect the two T's together like TT, put the 120Ohm terminators at each end, and run the extensions to the display and GPS module.

There is a decent troubleshooting guide for checking to make sure power is getting to the module at http://primus.lowrance.com/support/resultDisplay.do?gotoLink=92&docType=1000&contextId=426%3A92.273%2C600.639%2C92.113&clusterName=ClusterPublic&lang=english&docset=%2FDocuments%2FTroubleShooting%2FNew+Utility&contentId=42296cce-4f9b-40c8-9dcf-33d5df754009&responseId=135ccbe2cfd4f608%3A1fe88d%3A1225c5cc17c%3A-bac&groupId=4&answerGroup=1&score=986&page=http%3A%2F%2Fprimus.lowrance.com%2Ficr%2FTroubleShooting%2FNew+Utility%2FNU_GPS_ModNR.htm&result=0&excerpt=Module+Not+Responding+The+GPS+module+not+responding+(early+GPS+products+may+also+indicate+coupler+not+responding)+indicates+that+the+unit+and+module+are+no+longer+communicating.&question=gps+module+not+responding&resultType=5000#Goto92

If this doesn't tell you anything, most likely the GPS module is bad.You will need to contact Lowrance support to get it repaired/replaced. You can call them at 800-324-1356 or email them at http://www.lowrance.com/en/Support/Product-Support/Contact/
