The Lowrance 3500C has a 1 GB capability. Does that mean I must purchase a 1 GB SD card for it? Can't find anything smaller than a 2 GB SD card, but will a 2 GB card cause problems?


No, this means the internal memory size is 1 GB. If this unit accepts SD cards, you can increase the map capacity. 2GB SD cards should work properly in the unit.

Unit shuts down after about one minute.


When you leave a Nuvi on a charger for several hours and don't see full green bars, this is an indication that the battery is defective. Most Nuvi batteries last about 2 years. Most of the batteries have a date code of 2007. I would have the battery replaced as soon as possible as it can bloat and crack the case open. More info can be found here:

NEED UPDATES


Yes, you can get SOME updates for free... indefinetely.

You will need the latest version of TomTom Home software, available for free from www.tomtom.com.

Install the software on your computer BEFORE connecting the TomTom GPC to the USB port of the computer.

The free updates you can get are:

1) "QuickFix" updates. This contains the global positions of GPS satellites, allowing the TomTom GPS to get a faster lock on the GPS satellites (the GPS will get a lock within 5-10 seconds of being turned on, instead of 2-5 minutes on some other GPS brands). It is suggested that you update the QuickFix at least once a week. If you don't do it often, the GPS will just take longer to find the GPS satellites, that's all.

2) Minor updates to your map(s), but only the ones submitted by other TomTom users.

3) Updates to POIs (Points of Interest), such as new stores, malls, gas stations, parking lots, etc.

Whole-map updates ARE NOT FREE

Lowrance not reading navionic


Make sure that the 5200c is set to read the Navionic card. You can set that under Map Data.

Lowrance will give me a mob position but will not set automatically for running positions stay 0


I would like to help but I'm not sure I understand the question.

Are you saying that when you push the zoom in and zoom ou key at the same time you get a correct position, but you can't see a box that gives your real time position?

Is your map page set to show data on the right side of the screen? If not, press the page key and select the map/data page. This should give you some information on the screen which includes your current position, updated every second.

If I missed the mark with this answer, please give me some more details so I can help.

The screen is the weak point of the 2000's.  I have one myself, and without warning a number of "lines" appeared on the screen, getting progressively worse over time.  
Perusing other forums, it seems we're not alone.  Unfortunately the only "solution" I've found thus far is to purchase a new head unit (eBay is a terrific source!).
