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!).

My Lowrance 5500c powers up gets to aquired satelites and then stops on that page.No buttons work and the power has to be disconnected to turn off.


It is an old unit, it has been discontinued, there are no software updates for it.

Technology has moved on with larger High Definition displays, colour and side imaging. Time to retire it and look at Humminbird. I have the 998 HD Si. That replaced a 798 before it. Lowrance have the Chirp equivalents if you want to stick with Lowrance.

Or you could return it and see if they can fix it

How can a lowrance 5300 globalmap iGPS be used as a fishfinder.


Sadly, the 5300 does not have fishfinder/depth capability.
If you require it, the link below is for the owners manual for your unit.
Sorry I couldn't have given you happier news.

My fishfinder will not continue to read shallow depths as well as in shallow depths when drifting and occasionally running across the water. My unit is a lowrance 522c color gps/fishfinder.


Hello. Your observation is spot on and it is actually a characteristic that is always true when using sonar. Yes, your Lowrance uses the same sonar as a nuclear powered submarine does. The two factors you focus on, water depth and boat speed are perhaps, the two biggest factors when it comes to the quality of the fishfinder. The boat's engine should be in gear at an idle or just above. Experiment with your boat to find the best throttle location for good arches. Usually, a slow trolling speed works best. The depth of the fish can determine if the fish will arch on the screen. If the fish is in shallow water, the fish is not in the cone angle very long, making it difficult to show an arch. Typically, the deeper the fish, the easier it is to show an arch.

I have a Lowrance 7200C GPS (marine) unit with a "Navico 041-0680-17 chip. It doesnt show the depth contours, is there an upgrade or do I buy another chip? and if so, what chip will be best for my unit?...


Not showing the Depth Contours usually means it doesnt have that programmed on the chip.

The best Chips Ive ever seen, used or worked with for the Lowrance's are the "Navionics" and Fishing Hot Spots. Both can be obtained from Cabela's...either retail or online. And normally go from 99bucks for last years maps to 199 for this years. Hope this helps.

I have a lowrance LMS 332C GPS. After 5 years I


The LGC-2000 is bad would be the most likely cause, but if this started right after you changed the cables, Try connecting the NMEA 2000 network to a different power source than the main power. If you still have the original cables, and you didn't have the problem before, try using those again to make sure there isn't anything wrong with any of the new cables.

But most likely, the LGC-2000 is toast and you will want to contact Lowrance support to see about getting it repaired/replaced.

Lowrance globalmap 2400 on/off button stuck, unit tries to turn on then screen is blank, tried wiggling back and forth no luck, should i send it in for repair and where to...live in carroll county, md....


You can try a hard reset:

1. Turn unit off
2. Press and hold ZIN, ZOUT, and PWR until you get the "WARNING, DO NOT RELY..." message.

If that doesn't work, try installing the latest updates from http://www.lowrance.com/en/Downloads/Product-Software-Updates/

If it still doesn't work, and you can't get through to Lowrance by phone, try emailing them by going to http://www.lowrance.com/en/Support/Product-Support/Contact/

It probably won't be worth repairing the unit. You will be better off putting that money into a current unit which will be much better than the 2400 and probably less expensive than the 2400 was when it was new.

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?
