If you have an Elite 5x then it is not a combo unit
If it is a combo them the small door about the power button with the model number on it swings open.

A micro SD card goes in there. If your chart is an SD not a micro you will find the micro is in the end of the big car. Pull it out and pop it into the unit.

hope this helps

Hi. I"ve got a brand new elite 5hdi and been on for about 1 hour. does not want to lock in. import it from the states to Mozambique. please help

Hi Pieter

The problem here is that the unit has no idea where it is on the planet.
I think your best bet would be to reset the unit to factory defaults (page 11 of the owner's manual) and THEN use the setup wizard (page 6) to reinitialize the device.
Link to owner's manual provided below in case you or anyone else requires it.

Hope this helps and good luck!

Can i put lowrance 5hdi sounder and a lowrange sounder/gps 7hdi on the same transponder unit?

If you want to use two head units off of 1 transducer the answer is yes. You will require a transducer switch that allows you to select which head unit receives the sonar signal.
If you want to swap head units utilizing the same transducer the answer is also yes you can do that.

How do iremove beep from LG tech eleite

The beep is mandatory and a safety feature. It is also used for warning of malfunction. This is a medical device and you may render it dangerous by removing the internal sounder. I cannot recommend removal of sounder although i can see no reason why you could not quieten it with a little tape over the holes as long as it can still be heard.

How to open449CSTE - Smoke Detector W/Heat Sensor, Sounder & Status Relay keeps going off from stean

Opening is simple, but I don't know what you expect to accomplish. Just insert a small flatblade in the vertical opening opposite the hinge side and press firmly to release. If the plan is to disable the device by removing the wires you will only create a trouble condition if your smokes have been wired correctly. More info about your intentions might be helpful.

I can never read the fish on the screen of my sounder whether is in auto or manual mode (yes we are catching fish)

perhaps someone has messed with your sounder settings. You may want to factory reset the sounder from within one of the menus in your navnet. Also you may have a transducer going bad. Did you hit anything with it or run aground once? Maybe someone painted over the face of the transducer with bottom paint. There's alot of things that can cause this to happen. It would be best to have the sounder checked out before you do anything to the ducer. Remove your navnet and sounder and take it to a dealer to test on the bench. If you're in the maryland area, Mid-shore Electronics and handle this for you. Even if you're not, you can send the units to them.
