Lowrance AirMap 600C won't lock on satellites


Reset the AirMap 600:

1. Turn unit off
2. Press and hold PAGES and PWR until you get the "warning, do not rely..." message and then release the buttons.

If it still won't acquire position, install the latest update from http://www.lowrance.com/en/Products/Aviation/AirMap-600C/Downloads/AirMap-600C-Software-Update/.

Back light will not work iway 500


Unfortunately, the 500c is obsolete now and Lorance cannot repair the LCD screens anymore. Your only option may be to call Lowrance at (800) 324-1356 ad try to get an uprade to the newer iWay 600c. It's far from free, but less than you could buy a new unit for.
