Hds 10 gen 2 having trouble picking up location takes 20 to 30 minute to locate.


Aluminum will block a GPS signal, but the aluminum needs to be above the antenna and within approximately 12 inches or less.
the other major source of interference is the electromagnetic field of other electronics in close proximity to your GPS antenna. Typically within about 24"-30" or less in distance from the antenna. The internal antenna of the HD 10 is top dead center of the unit.
Turn the "WAAS" off on your unit and see if that improves reception.
Hope this info helps.

My global map 5200c curser is blinking a question mark


That question mark means the GPS antenna cannot get a satellite fix for the GPS to triangulate your position.
Be sure there is no aluminum above your antenna. This will block the gps signal. Also be sure your GPS antenna is at least 24" or more away from any other electronics The electromagnetic field electronics emit will disrupt the GPS signal coming to your antenna.

Can i replace my 330c head unit with the 525c using the same wires antennae etc lowrance


Hope its not to late, before you replace (buy a new one) call Lowrance. I have a 525 and working through some problems and they advised me that they would replace my unit for $200 no questions asked. To answer your question not 100% positive but I did see a recent question where Lowrance lost his unit and sent him the 525 as a replacement and the connections were different. I believe my 525 has a 5 pin system with one notch. Does yours have a external gps module? The 525 does!

I have a Lowrance 7200C GPS (marine) unit with a "Navico 041-0680-17 chip. It doesnt show the depth contours, is there an upgrade or do I buy another chip? and if so, what chip will be best for my unit?...


Not showing the Depth Contours usually means it doesnt have that programmed on the chip.

The best Chips Ive ever seen, used or worked with for the Lowrance's are the "Navionics" and Fishing Hot Spots. Both can be obtained from Cabela's...either retail or online. And normally go from 99bucks for last years maps to 199 for this years. Hope this helps.

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/

Make sure all the connections at the back of the unit are tight. If it still doesn't respond try a new puck.

Global map 5200c loading problems- navionics platinum hot maps


I had the same problem with my handheld Lowrance Hunt C. After installing the card and locking it in place, I had to slide the card "out" toward the locking mechanism. It barely moves, but worked after that. Whenever I load the card, I now slide it out and it works every time.
