Question about Lowrance Iway 500c GPS Receiver
The touchscreen has stopped responding to my touch - it boots up ok but will not allow me to control it through the touchscreen
My iway 500c kinda had the same problem. At first while driving, the screen would go from 3d to always north to always up and be switching screens 3 to 4 times a second. It would finally go back to normal. After about a month of this the touch screen would work intermittently. It finally quit working completely on a trip to Texas. When I got home I called Lowrance and the said they would replace it for $350. I already spent over $600 for it. I took the thing apart and found the grounding screw to the touch screen was really loose. I tightened it and now its working again for now. I am not happy with Lowrance support.

Solution: Go to main menu>screen setup>calibrate screen and recalibrate. Also, can do a hard reset. Info on Lowrance site.

I have the same problem essentially. The only thing I can do is pan left and right in map mode. I can't access any of the buttons that appear onscreen as the touch screens calibration (or something) seems wacked out, the cursor seems to be buried in the bottom edge of the screen as I can just barely see the top of it. The only time the unit functions even remotely normal is if its *VERY* hot. Almost too hot to touch. Anyone have a solution?

I'm having the same problem. Every time I get the box out and get ready to send it in it starts working again. Seems like mine is touchy in the mornings. Once it heats up it starts working. I paid way too much for this to be having problems like this.
