How do I get my lake map chip to come on


With your card in your unit follow these steps it should accomplish letting you view your map data.
push MENU twice
Highlight CHART push ENTER
Highlight CHART DATA push ENTER
Highlight LOWRANCE push ENTER.
You will note there is an option for Lowrance and Navionics, if you select Navionics you will see a distinct difference in the way the base map displays on your unit.
Hope this helps.

Hi, a waypoint is used to mark a point of interest for location purposes only whether it be for fish, hazards or a boat ramp etc. it is not intended to replace common sense. Your navionics card if purchased will show land masses, shallow waters, channel markers and known hazards. Regards Phil.

Global map 5200c loading problems- navionics platinum hot maps


I had the same problem with my handheld Lowrance Hunt C. After installing the card and locking it in place, I had to slide the card "out" toward the locking mechanism. It barely moves, but worked after that. Whenever I load the card, I now slide it out and it works every time.

Navionics gold card & humminbird 78c2


Hi!
You NEED to have a gps lock in order for the card to show it's true potential.
Also check in the menu for a setting that says "Map detail" and change it to all available. It could be the setting is on a lesser choice (like the internal mapping and not the new sd card)
Hope this helps!

Make sure that you go into MAP data and select this chart as the map info. You might just be using the internal base map right now.
