Speed & track display

I've had a lowrance 3500C for a few years from new and never managed to get it to register speed & track on main pages...they just display zero. I have to go into trip calculator to get this information. Any thoughts?

The Lowrance 3500C has a 1 GB capability. Does that mean I must purchase a 1 GB SD card for it? Can't find anything smaller than a 2 GB SD card, but will a 2 GB card cause problems?


No, this means the internal memory size is 1 GB. If this unit accepts SD cards, you can increase the map capacity. 2GB SD cards should work properly in the unit.

With alcx-27c with gps do i need a transducer with the speed on it? or will my gps give me the speed my boat is traveling


The unit will give you speed over ground directly form GPS. there is a difference between Speed Over Ground (SOG) and ocean speed. Ocean speed will only be available from a paddle wheel type transducer.

Hello- My 332c will not show speed. It worked before.The spinner wheel is not damaged.Speed just flashes 0.00 mph Thanks, Jeff


Try setting up the speed in the overlay data menu again:
1. Press MENU, arrow down to OVERLAY DATA and press ENT
2. Highlight the option for speed (WATER SPEED or GROUND SPEED) and press ENT
3. Highlight the REMOVE button and press ENT
4. Highlight (PRESS ENT TO ADD) and press ENT
5. Arrow down to SONAR DATA and press ENT
6. Arrow down to WATER SPEED and press ENT, a check will be displayed in the box
7. Press EXIT twice

If the speed is still flashing, the data is still invalid. Try resetting the unit completely:
1. Turn unit off
2. Press and hold the PAGES and POWER key until the "DO NOT RELY..." alarm appears
3. Set up the overlay data for speed again: 1. Press MENU, arrow down to OVERLAY DATA and press ENT; 2. Highlight (PRESS ENT TO ADD) and press ENT; 3. Arrow down to SONAR DATA and press ENT; 4. Arrow down to WATER SPEED and press ENT, a check will be displayed in the box; 5. Press EXIT twice

If the speed is still flashing, good chance the speed sensor is bad even though the wheel still spins. Install the latest LMS-332 updates from http://www.lowrance.com/en/Products/Marine/Full-Size-SonarGPS-Chartplotter-Combos/LMS-332C/Downloads/LMS-332C-Software-Update/ and set up the overlay data again.

If it turns out that the speed sensor is bad, just use speed from the GPS. This can be set up from the overlay data menu as GROUND SPEED.

(note: the overlay data must be set up for each page individually. So if you set up speed to be displayed on the map screen, it will not also be set up on the sonar page)

Need installation for pitot tube(Sspeed Transponder) and lms-332


manuals can be downloaded at http://www.lowrance.com/en/Downloads/Manuals/

You can probably get the parts from a dealer, or any marine electronics retail like Bass Pro and Cabelas or any of those kinds of places.
You can buy accessories from Lowrance at www.lei-extras.com

Not sure about the speed transponder? but if you are referring to the transducer, you probably need to go to this link

http://www.lei-extras.com/store/search.asp?SearchType=Category&Category=200+khz+transducer

That first item, part number 106-72, is most likely what you are referring to.

Lowrance not reading navionic


Make sure that the 5200c is set to read the Navionic card. You can set that under Map Data.

Cannot access main menu or pages screen


I think I can help with your issue. I have an LMS 334c and have had a few issues in the past. Called the factory (this answer is not listed any where in your manual) and they instructed me to "Soft Re Boot" my unit and it would put everything back to factory settings. Try this anytime it does not respond for whatever reason.

Turn the unit off.

At the same time press the Pages and Power button. Hold both down until you see the square box come up in the screen. You should have your factory settings again. May need to try a few times.
Lowrance said it works just like a computer, ever now and then it just tries to disect to much information at one time and hangs up.
Good luck. James Cantwell

Lowrance will give me a mob position but will not set automatically for running positions stay 0


I would like to help but I'm not sure I understand the question.

Are you saying that when you push the zoom in and zoom ou key at the same time you get a correct position, but you can't see a box that gives your real time position?

Is your map page set to show data on the right side of the screen? If not, press the page key and select the map/data page. This should give you some information on the screen which includes your current position, updated every second.

If I missed the mark with this answer, please give me some more details so I can help.
