Question about Lowrance LMS-527C DF iGPS GPS Receiver

Open Question

Zoom gps while on the split screen with sonar.

When I have the gps split screen with the sonar screen I want to zoom the gps without having to change the screen. I used to do it but I must haved pushed the setting to where it zooms the sonar side not the gps side.
If I want to zoom the gps I have to change the screen to full gps than zoom and come back to the sonar split each time.
How can I set the zoom for the gps side in the split screen mode with sonar?

Thanks, David.

Hello

While you are experimenting and learning, it's possible to scramble

the settings so that the sonar picture disappears from your screen.

If that happens, remember that it's easy to switch back to full
automatic operation by simply restoring the factory auto settings.
To Restore Factory Settings

1# Press MENU => MENU => [DN] button to SYSTEM SETUP => ENT => [DN] button to RESET OPTIONS => ENT

2# The unit asks if you want to reset all the options. Press [ ] to

YES'ENT. All options are reset, and the unit reverts back to the Map

Page at the 4000 mile zoom range. (Any recorded sonar logs or GPS
data will be unchanged.)

Works on down scan but not on sonar


Hummingbird systems have the ability to turn off pages so they will not be displayed. On your main menu look for the "views" tab. Scroll down to the sonar view page and see if it shows visible or hidden by that page. If it says hidden, select visible and you should be all set.

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.

Lowrance HDS 5 Sonar faulty


You realise we are FIXYA, we are not Lowrance?

Is this when you are moving, or when you are stationary? If it is stationary, then the transducer or the wiring to it, or the plug into the head is faulty.

If it is only when you are moving, the transducer is not sitting at the correct angle and you are getting a disrupted water flow over it.

The other possibility is that you have the sensitivity set too high, which shows more activity on the screen. Set the head back to Defaults.

Somehow I have split the screen into two pictures of the same sonar reading. How do I get it back to only being shown on the one screen instead of being split into two.


Hi, press pages, then use the arrow up key to select sonar only page(it will show in upper left of screen the page you have selected.) Then press enter. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

If it is normal in deeper water, it is most likely just returning stuff in the water (debris, algae, anything floating around...choppy water can cause this). Try installing the latest updates from http://www.lowrance.com/en/Downloads/Product-Software-Updates/

If it doesn't help, adjusting the sensitivity or setting the SURFACE CLARITY option from the SONAR FEATURES menu to LOW, MEDIUM, or HIGH...whichever gives the best results.
