    Yes, I have the same problem. What upgrade did the previous blogger perform that fixed his problem. Did he upgrade the firmware. If yes, to what version? I have the LMS-332 also.

Had same problem with lms337. i had upgraded the unit but had not upgraded the lms2000 gps module. i was turning the isolator on in the boat which powers up gps module, if the lms337 is not powered up as well the gps unit goes to sleep. the upgrade fixes it by checking that the unit has not been turned on periodically. otherwise as soon as you power up gps module also turn on lms337. lowrance product support sorted this for me.

Had the same problem with another model. Cable from the antenna had a broken wire where it plugged into the head unit. Intermittent problems can be a pain. Try moving the cable when the unit indicates a failure. It wont fix it but might point out the fault. Mike

Can i replace my 330c head unit with the 525c using the same wires antennae etc lowrance


Hope its not to late, before you replace (buy a new one) call Lowrance. I have a 525 and working through some problems and they advised me that they would replace my unit for $200 no questions asked. To answer your question not 100% positive but I did see a recent question where Lowrance lost his unit and sent him the 525 as a replacement and the connections were different. I believe my 525 has a 5 pin system with one notch. Does yours have a external gps module? The 525 does!

I have a lcx16 sounder gps with a lgc12s antenna receiver. The gps module is not responding Do I need a new antenna ?


more than likely you do or you have a bad connection. It's always best to take this sort of issue to a shop in the event something is wrong with the unit itself before buying the new gps.

HAVING A PROBLEM WITH MY LOWRANCE 525C WITH EXTERNAL ANTENNA. IT KEEPS TELLING ME GPS MODULE NOT RESPONDING. I HAVE CHECKED ALL CONECTIONS AND CANNOT FIND A PROBLEM. WHAT NEXT


Make sure that you have powered the NMEA 2000 network. The display unit's power cable has a set of red, black, and sheild wires that need to be hooked up to a 12VDC power source. There is a power diagram somewhere in the manual that should show this.

Make sure that you have the NMEA 2000 network connected properly. If it is a newer version LMS-525, it should just be a single 15ft cable that has two female ends, the module plugs into one end, and the other end plugs into the back of the display.
If it came with some T connecters and 120Ohm Terminator caps, then make sure you have that hooked up correctly. There should be a diagram in the manual for that as well but you just connect the two T's together like TT, put the 120Ohm terminators at each end, and run the extensions to the display and GPS module.

There is a decent troubleshooting guide for checking to make sure power is getting to the module at http://primus.lowrance.com/support/resultDisplay.do?gotoLink=92&docType=1000&contextId=426%3A92.273%2C600.639%2C92.113&clusterName=ClusterPublic&lang=english&docset=%2FDocuments%2FTroubleShooting%2FNew+Utility&contentId=42296cce-4f9b-40c8-9dcf-33d5df754009&responseId=135ccbe2cfd4f608%3A1fe88d%3A1225c5cc17c%3A-bac&groupId=4&answerGroup=1&score=986&page=http%3A%2F%2Fprimus.lowrance.com%2Ficr%2FTroubleShooting%2FNew+Utility%2FNU_GPS_ModNR.htm&result=0&excerpt=Module+Not+Responding+The+GPS+module+not+responding+(early+GPS+products+may+also+indicate+coupler+not+responding)+indicates+that+the+unit+and+module+are+no+longer+communicating.&question=gps+module+not+responding&resultType=5000#Goto92

If this doesn't tell you anything, most likely the GPS module is bad.You will need to contact Lowrance support to get it repaired/replaced. You can call them at 800-324-1356 or email them at http://www.lowrance.com/en/Support/Product-Support/Contact/

Gps error message "gps module not responding"


Check the connectors and wiring between the GPS module and sonar unit. If it's an internal GPS module yo may have knocked loose a connector internally.

GPS Module not responding


i just got it back from Lowrance and they replaced antenna and it works, but for how long is anybody's guess. The technician at Lowrance told me the antenna should be at least 3 feet from base unit and he thinks that is problem, because mine is only 2 feet. Why doesn't it say that in manual, if true and why doesn't MarineMax install it properly. MarineMax just gave up trying to help me, even though it was under their warranty. They just care about the sale and their installation was shoddy at best with wires hangiing all over the place. I decided to take care of it myself, so we will see.
