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.
is a decent troubleshooting guide for checking to make sure power is
getting to the module at
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/
