Question about Lowrance M68C GPS Receiver

6 Answers

How do I download a copy of the m68c manual to keep on boat

I purchased a new hurricane boat with the m68c on friday.
The dealer told me that it would do everything that my Garmen did on the old hurricane.

My questions:

Map shows that we are on the land when we are in canals. It does not even show canals. I think that the software is outdated ?

The map does not show water depths or makers and pilings like the old GPS.

The map does not scroll with the movement of the boat. We have to manually move the map with the arrow Key to find the boat.

I went by the dealer on Sat. and did not get any help.

This is a brand new unit that is built into the dash of the boat.

Sometimes GPS receivers stop working correctely (no or unstable fix). Hamlet advice is to reset it using a desktop Windows program that they provide. Unfortunately, this requires a BT enabled desktop or laptop PC. Very unpractical indeed!Therefore, I developed this small utility to reset GPS receivers. It should work on any device with .NET Compact Framework installed and for any BT serial port GPS receiver.

Installation:
1 - extract the files from GPSReset.zip 
2 - copy GPSReset.cab to your device
3 - run it, a shortcut to GPSReset.exe should appear inside Programs
or
2 - copy GPSReset.exe and OpenNETCF.dll wherever you want in your device (but not \Windows)
3 - create a shortcut to GPSReset.exe 

Usage:
1 - check that BT is enabled and that the GPS receiver is on
2 - run GPSReset
3 - select the serial port and and the baudrate of your GPS receiver
4 - click the Open button and wait for the Reset button to become enabled (or for an error message)
5 - click the Reset button
6 - click the Exit button, that's it
After reset it might be necessary to execute again the BT pairing procedure with the receiver.

the part taken from a link as below.....

Recently bought a Garmin 205 and was told that there is a free update I am unable to do this please can you help


There are two types of updates for Garmin GPS units; firmware and maps. "Firmware" updates are always free and can performed by downloading the webupdater program from:

http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp

The site above provides a Webupdater download link and complete, easy to follow instructions. Connect the GPS to your computer & run the Webupdater program from time to time to make sure you have the latest firmware running in you GPS at all times.

Map updates however, usually require a fee be paid to access. If you purchase a GPS within a certain period of time from when a new map set is released, you'll often be allowed a "one time" free update. After that, you'll have to purchase map sets one at a time (at intervals of your choosing) or, purchase a "lifetime" map set subscription. Maps are updated up to 4 times a year, and a subscription allows downloading up to 4 map sets a year. The subscription is slightly more costly than a one time purchase, and for most people, is a much more cost effective method.

Contact Garmin Support first to find out more about map set availability and compatible maps for your GPS, below:

Need installation for pitot tube(Sspeed Transponder) and lms-332


manuals can be downloaded at http://www.lowrance.com/en/Downloads/Manuals/

You can probably get the parts from a dealer, or any marine electronics retail like Bass Pro and Cabelas or any of those kinds of places.
You can buy accessories from Lowrance at www.lei-extras.com

Not sure about the speed transponder? but if you are referring to the transducer, you probably need to go to this link

http://www.lei-extras.com/store/search.asp?SearchType=Category&Category=200+khz+transducer

That first item, part number 106-72, is most likely what you are referring to.

Depth finder problem


The problem is not so much the flat bottom, although they are prone to this problem. The way the sonic waves have to travel through the water is affected by turbulence, especially by air bubbles and cavitation, and by the transducer actually leaving the water, which happens frequently on flat bottomed boats. The best solution to this is to have the unit mounted through the hull so it is completely flush with the hull surface - often they are mounted with a surface flange on the outside of the hull which although thin still causes cavitation around the transducer at higher speeds. about 14 knots will usually interfere with the accuracy of the readings on most hull shapes - forward looking sonars perform usually better. Another thing to check is that the transducer is actually seating right in the housing, if it is not flush with the flange then you have problems - even half a millimetre is too much. check no muppet has painted the transducer with antifouling paint - that never helps, also check if there is a build up of marine growth on or near the transducer - a smooth hull will always keep your depth working until a higher boat speed. if the transducer is growing stuff itself then gently scrape it off - be really careful not to scratch the surface. There are now available non-sonic depth sounders, especially ulf radio signal devices, but I have heard no good reports about them, last i saw they were very expensive and maybe they experience other problems at high speed. there also have been towed devices available that may suit your needs better, although probably a lot of trouble in shallow waters. If you can borrow a waterproof video camera, you could mount it behind (not too close) the transducer, this would be a pain to do, but it may give you an insight into what part of the hull if any is causing the problem (tie the camera to the top of the boat securely in case the mount fails) Hope this helps, sorry but your dealer is not totally wrong :)
