    Thanks (trewm) for your reply. I have already tried that solution-(4-times). When I re-boot my 500c, that fix (will not load) to populate the POI's.
    I have tried Soft-Reboot/Hard-Reboot also-(still no luck). The 1.4-POI's will not do anything after a successful download.
    I'd like to wipe-out the whole hard-drive and start over but I'm not sure if the downloads are available for such a radical move. (1.8) has a function in Main Menu called-(Transfer Data)-with a dropdown choice of-(Transfer Data Which Way)-(Save or Load).I'm wondering if I can use that to Load the Update somehow?...ANY MORE IDEAS?...(DocDxn)

This is a known issue with the 1.8 update. The solution is to reload the POI from the 1.4 update. Lowrance have the file to do that here:

Lowrance AirMap 600C won't lock on satellites


Reset the AirMap 600:

1. Turn unit off
2. Press and hold PAGES and PWR until you get the "warning, do not rely..." message and then release the buttons.

If it still won't acquire position, install the latest update from http://www.lowrance.com/en/Products/Aviation/AirMap-600C/Downloads/AirMap-600C-Software-Update/.

If it still won't acquire, and it has a clear, unobstructed view of the sky, and the batteries are good, there is a malfunction and it will require service or replacement.

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.

Lowrance 330c screen says '' boot failed''


Try a hard reset:

1. Turn the LMS-330 off
2. Press and hold the ZIN, ZOUT, and PWR buttons
3. Release the three buttons once you see the "warning, do not rely..." message appear

If you get that far, the problem is solved. If you get boot failed again, try installing the latest update which can be downloaded from http://www.lowrance.com/en/Downloads/Product-Software-Updates/

If you still get boot failed, you will need to get the LMS-330 repaired/replaced. You can contact Lowrance support at 800-324-1356 or email them by going to http://www.lowrance.com/en/Support/Product-Support/Contact/

GARMIN 260W


Hi It is more important to know how to add POIs. Here is a simple tip: 

1. Create some directory especially for download. I use the following one: C:\Garmin_POI_GPS_DATA_TEAM 

2. Download and save all CSV and BMP files to that directory. You may create any subdirectory and use it to save POIs for that category. 
I use: C:\Garmin_POI_GPS_DATA_TEAM\Restaurants, C:\Garmin_POI_GPS_DATA_TEAM\Petrol etc. 

3. Garmin's POI Loader will find all files in these subfolders and will use them to create a category. 
Garmin POI Loader will search through the directory C:\Garmin_POI_GPS_DATA_TEAM and will create/transfer all corresponding POIs to your connected GPS. 

4. You can remove any POI file simply by removing it from your POI folder. and re-running the POI Loader software. This POI update procedure takes about 1-2 minutes. 

In summary, keep your POI files updated on your PC and run POI Loader to update your GPS or SD card via any SD card reader. 

Cheers

Lowrance 250c map update


http://www.lei-extras.com/store/search.asp?SearchType=Unit&Unit=iWAY+250C

You need to buy the Navteq map update, but you can call them and send in your memory card they will update it for a reduced cost, since 75 plus 12 shipping is too much just for maps, you can buy a whole new one.
