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

Hi. I"ve got a brand new elite 5hdi and been on for about 1 hour. does not want to lock in. import it from the states to Mozambique. please help


Hi Pieter

The problem here is that the unit has no idea where it is on the planet.
I think your best bet would be to reset the unit to factory defaults (page 11 of the owner's manual) and THEN use the setup wizard (page 6) to reinitialize the device.
Link to owner's manual provided below in case you or anyone else requires it.

Hope this helps and good luck!

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.

Navionics card wont work


You most likely need to change the map data displayed.
The elite series won't change for you automatically. Lowrance Elite 7 HDI Hybrid Dual Imaging Fishfinder Chartplotter
here is a link to the elite 7 page where you can download a pdf owners manual.
go to the gps/map page on your unit. Find "chart data" on your menu.
select nation is as your chart data. Then you will be ableaving to see your map data.

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.

Hi Matt,

There is a feature in these chartplotters called "Plotter Mode" that is often misunderstood and causes the exact problem you describe.

Press menu.....chart setup.....and scroll to the bottom until you see Plotter Mode in the list of options. It should be set in the OFF position.

If you have more than one display networked onboard check the setting in each one invividually.

What Plotter Mode does is allows the chartplotter system to access range scales not supported on the chart. It is not normally used for map-based navigation but more so for chartless electronic plotting (it can display routes, waypoints and track-recorder breadcrumbs.) open-ocean cruising, or for ultra-precise GPS operations (like a precision anchor drop, finding a very specific location etc. When plotter mode is on you can zoom in to a very, very small working area. The indicator it is enable is the cross-hatch background on the screen, the lack of map information, and the NO CHART DATA watermark on the screen.
