Re: Lowrance Endura-projections other than Lat/Long?
Yes, if you download the newest firmware upgrade version 1.2 it will add in other projections and datums, as well as fix other known issues. I would recommend that you run both the 1.1 and 1.2 upgrade for your Sierra, the 1.1 upgrade will fix some issues with the base map.
Both upgrades can be found at the following location: http://www.lowrance.com/en/Endura/More/

You can go to your GPS page and zoom out and then using your cursor pad and move your cursor so it is in the general area of your coordinates. Start zooming in andifferent as you do the the lat, long readings on your screen will become more precise. Continue to adjust your cursor position so the coordinates match up with known position you have. Continue until the cursor position on screen and your known coordinates match.
Push "ENTER" twice. Your way point will be saved at the current position of the cursor.
Push your cursor pad to bring up your crosshairs on the GPS screen. Save that waypoint, then go in and edit the coordinates to match your location data and save it. The waypoint you created will move to the new coordinates.
Sounds like the power button is pulled loose from the circuit board or the power switch went bad for some reason. You can't check this out as it is sealed to be waterproof and opening it violates the warranty. The only way to address this would be to send in to Lowrance Customer Service.
This should not be a common problem and should be covered by manufacturers warranty if still within the 1 yr warranty period. If out of warranty, Lowrance Customer Service should still be able to replace or repair it for some sort of cost.
To speak with US based Lowrance Customer Service, call toll-free at 1-800-324-1356, Monday through Friday from

1) You must have version 1.4 software on your Endura. Remove the map card, press and hold (10 sec.) the menu key until software information appears to see what you have. Upgrades are available on Lowrance's website.
2) You must have the Endura Compatible LakeMaster map card. These were made available in May 2010. The packages have an "Endura Compatible" sticker on the front.
Call LakeMaster regarding your options if the card is not Endura compatible.

Hello there: here is what you can try to do is first unplug any power going to the unit and remove the battery these units have a internal reset device that will reset it'self after a given amount of time which is about 1 hour. during this time press in on the power button for 2 minutes and if it has a reset button it press in on this for 2 min leave the battery and the power out of the unit for the rest of the remaining time i had mentioned. now plug in the power cord back in it and start the unit now if it works ok simply turn off and replace the battery and you are now done ok Hope this is very helpful for you Best regards Michael
Loading Geocaching information on the Endura Safari GPS
You can load individual caches into the Safari as a .loc file or load a pocket query file of up to 500 caches as a .gpx file.
The trick with the Safari is to load these onto the unit using the data cable that comes in the box. Connect the Safari to your computer using the data cable and transfer your .loc or .gpx files into the GPX folder on the device.
These files have to be in this GPX folder to be recognized by the device. It will not work if you load the .loc or .gpx files onto a microSD card and insert it into the bottom of the Safari. I am told that this will be fixed in the 1.2 software update that is supposed to come out at the beginning of December.
Once you have the files loaded, all you have to do is disconnect from the computer and wait for the Endura to restart, go to Main Menu --> Find --> Geocaches and see all of the caches listed. For .loc files, there will be limited information provided from Geocaching.com. For .gpx pocket query files, you will have access to the full description, cache size, terrain difficulty, find log and hints. The great thing about the Endura GPS products is that they have a great filter function for geocaches. I use this with my 7 yr old daughter when I only want to find caches that are easier to find and have full size traditional caches that are more likely to have better "treasure" inside. Hope this helps. Have fun!
