Lowrance EP-85R storage device problems

I have installed an Lowrance EP-85R storage device to my network to display and record fuel usage from my E-tec. The storage works well as I can record and display all fuel data on my LFM-400 gauges, however every trip I do at different time intervals the storage unit will reset and display strange figures. The i am forced to reset all data. Please help as this defeats the purpose of installing the device.

A "soft reset" can be accomplished by pressing and hold "Pages" key and press and hold "PWR" key till USA map comes on , then release both. A "hard reset" requires press and hold both "Z in" and "Z out" buttons and press and hold "PWR" button releasing all three when USA map appears.

You do not need the data cable connected unles you are hooking it up to other electronics, ie computer, second GPS sounder ect. You only need to conect the red to the positive on the battery and the black to the negative.

My new Lowrance Hook-5 GPS isn't working, I'm a noob, how do I get this function working?


'isn't working' is such a broad problem. If it is only the GPS, it is covered from Page 49 of the manual and shows you can access Satellite information. Note, it almost certainly won't work in your garage or storage. It need to see the sky as the antennae is internal.

The unit has an installation guide. In my personal opinion, it is better to let a professional boat engineer install it, mainly for the correct fitting of the transducer on the stern. Correct placing makes all the difference to a good set up, unless you intend to fish without the engine running.

All they need is mounting, power through a fuse direct to the battery, and the transducer fitting. Then you put the boat in the water and switch it on.

Need a repair shop for GPS,Fisher


Hi Clarence
Although the problem COULD be a faulty depth transducer, in my experience this is usually caused by a cabling problem, either there is a poor connection at the display unit, a poor power cable connection, RF interference from another device or the cable has been pinched causing an intermittent fault. After making SURE the power cable is tight, I'd clean the connections, then inspect the cable looking for an area that has been stressed. If you have a VHF radio nearby, try shutting that down during your testing. If depth reads normally, you know where your issue lies.

Good Luck!

Record greeting


What kind of voice mail system do you have? They all are limited to the amount of total storage available. It probably has one or more mail boxes that are full and using up your storage. If it is a call pilot 100 or 150 and you have call pilot manager access, you can click on "message usage" under the reports menu and it will tell you the current storage available. Hope this helps.

Globalmap 2000 sonar not responding


Not enough info to diagnose your problem. It sounds like a networking problem. I couldn't find a manual for the sam-st module so I'm not sure how you have it hooked up. Typically with these devices only one would be hooked up to the SONAR module, and it would then share the data with the other display via an ethernet or NMEA2000 network. The erratic behavior of your bluewater could be due to some sort conflict with the current coming from the GlobalMap2000. Do you get the same problem when the 2000 is turned off? Have you tried running the GlobalMap2000 with the bluewater turned off?
