Question about Lowrance Iway 500c GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Gps not turning on

My lowrance 500c had been working fine. in fact, I sent for an update to download, but before receiving download, I intended a trip to the 'thousand islands in on the st. lawrence river. when I plugged in my gps, the red light just kept blinking on and off and my unit screen didn't light up at all. is there anything I can try besides trying to find a dealer to fix it, if not, where can I find a site to lead me to someone who can fix it. would rather take it there and not ship. thanks

Try holding the music button down while the unit boots up, that may reset the system and have you on your way.

I can't get an update for my Iway 500c . It has been ordered since either April or May from LEI . What can I do ? It makes me wish that I had purchased something else


I received an email from LEI on 3/19/2010 concerning this issue and was informed that they have no plans to provide future updates for the Iway 500c. Bad news for both of us, I own one as well.

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/.

If it still won't acquire, and it has a clear, unobstructed view of the sky, and the batteries are good, there is a malfunction and it will require service or replacement.

Version 1.8 download


Is there a hard reset button or series of button presses that you can use? check the manual for this as it may reset the system. hold down the map/music button while the system boots up, that should reset it and may work. if not we'll try somehting else.
