Find out if an optional memory card is required. Many of these GPS's do not have enough built in memory. You have to add the memory card.

If memory is not the issue, contact the tech support for your unit just in case it may be defective.

Well, the first thing I would try is to reset it and see if that corrects the problem you are having, please let me know if it doesn't and I will see what we can do

from lowrance website

Performing a soft reset of the unit should take care of that.
1. Start with the turned off.
2. Press and hold the PAGES key.
3. Press and hold the PWR key.
4. Release both buttons when the USA map appears.

*****There is also a hard reset but you would lose all of your GPS waypoints and trail info.********

Performing a Hard reset of the unit should take care of that.
1. Start with the turned off.
2. Press and hold the ZIN and ZOUT keys at the same time.
3. Press and hold the PWR key.
4. Release both buttons when the USA map appears.

Hi there

Sounds lie it has a memory problem... perhaps a failed internal memory chip... are you using an external mem card with it as well?

I am trying to update garmin nuvi 250.I bought nu maps lifetime europe (2011.40) but device dose not have enough space for full coverage region.how much space is needed.If i buy a memory card for the...


The map takes approx 3 Gb of storage space so you need a 4 Gb memory card. When you download the map to your computer run it and install part of the map to your satnav. After this click the start button (bottom left of your computer screen) and find the menu folder "Garmin". In the Garmin folder you'll find "Mapinstall" With the memory card in your satnav, and the satnav connected to your computer run mapinstall being sure to select the memory card as the destination. (It will be by default your satnav not your memory card). When the installation is complete the satnav will automatically switch to the map on your memory card when needed. You'll find detailed instructions of how to prepare the memory card and install the map on it at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps

I turn my power source on and my screen flashes like it's not reading anything from my transducer but the transducer is new.


Has this unit worked in the past, or are the transducer and the unit itself new? Is this a Lowrance LMS-240 as indicated before your question?

Please let me know and I can help you out here.

Thanks, just reply here,
Tim

Units flashes when turned on --won't stop


5_5_2012_6_29_36_pm.jpg
Here's my LMS 332c circuit board. I'm showing where the power source is on the lower right, and where I believe the first two ribbon cables that lead to the power switch on the front panel (upper left). Can anyone tell me how to disable the internal power switch and where? I want to install external switch and bypass the internal. I can solder and not afraid to try since this unit is out of warranty and is not functional as is with powering on/off and screen flashing randomly. Thanks!

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/

Cannot save waypoint on my magellan triton 200 gps.


Assuming you have installed the latest firmware. When you are on the map screen, just click on the center button and do a create a Waypoint and pick current location.

Or push the MENU button .. choose CREATE a WAYPOINT and when you GPS is on and has locked in on the Satellites . then create the Waypoint.

My Lowrance LMS-337c df keeps going crazy.

To troubleshoot the problem Iwould recommend the following steps.

  1. Try a soft reset
  2. If the problem resurfaces, try a hard reset
  3. Update the the operating system software

Soft Reset (Does not delete GPSData)
1. Turn unit OFF 2. Press and holdthe PAGES key
3. Press and hold the PWR key
4. Release both buttons when the USA map
Appears

Hard Reset (Deletes stored GPS Data
such as Waypoints and trails)
1. Back up any waypoints, routes,and trails that you want to save on a blank MMC card
2. Turn unit OFF
3. Press and hold the ZIN&ZOUTKeys at
the same time
4. Pressand hold the PWR key
5. Release both buttons when the USAmap
appears

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
