Question about Lowrance GPS

1 Answer

My new Endura out&back does not show lake depth detail from Navionics, lake maps premium, hotmaps, sd card. Main reason I bought it, since my H2O c broke.

    I have in the unit (Endura 0ut&back) a micro SD version. Unit powers up and down fine, this micro

    version shows me all other details of map, except lake depth contours, even on well known lakes.

    So if I understand your response my problem is more then likely a defective GPS unit.

One thing that you need to know that the Fishing Hot Spots cards do not work currently in the Lowrance Endura Out&Back, Safari or Sierra GPS units as these cards are in SD format and the Endura's use microSD format.

A microSD version that will work in the Endura's with full functionality is being worked on.

If your new Endura does not work properly (dept of lake from Navionics...) after being charge (power on and off) you might have gotten a faulty unit. You should exchange it for a new one.

    Yes, It is a defective unit as you mention it is new, you should be able to see the dept of the lake.

Lcs-20c GPS slow with HotMaps Premium 09 card


Does the image come back by itself if you slow down or stop and wait? If not, make sure you are not leaving the coverage area of the chart you are set to. In the LCX-20, that Navionics chart is split up into several sections, if you have one section selected and are on the border and then leave that area, the map usually goes all white depending on your zoom level. If you are on a border like that you will have to learn to quickly switch the charts from the MAP DATA menu.

If the map does catch up when you slow or stop, and just can't redraw fast enough...

Make sure the LCX-20 has the latest updates which can be downloaded from http://www.lowrance.com/en/Downloads/Product-Software-Updates/
These updates often add additional Navionics support.

Most likely though, this is just going to be the way it is with that particular map and the LCX-20. If you zoom out it will be much much better. So if updating doesn't help, zoom out. Experiment to see how close you can be zoomed in while running above 20mph. If you can get a good zoom level to where the map can keep up and you can still see the information you need then you should be good to go. If not, use the LakeMaster card or go get a different mapping option...or upgrade your display unit.

MapCreate Topo does not have lake maps. There are 'some' maps on Lowrance's web site (Free Enhanced Lake Maps) but you may need to purchase lake maps on SD cards for the area you're interested in.

Lowrance LCX 28c HD with Navionics HotMaps Premium SD chip. Chip worked fine last fall but when I went to use yesterday the Lowrance would not read the chip.


I had the same problem with my handheld Lowrance Hunt C. After installing the card and locking it in place, I had to slide the card "out" toward the locking mechanism. It barely moves, but worked after that. Whenever I load the card, I now slide it out or wiggle it and it works every time.

Need map updates for GPS


Dependant on the type of unit you have, you can order MMC or SD cards from several companies. I have used Navionics with much success. They have a buy-back program where you can get a discount towards the latest cards when you turn in your old ones. Also, if you have a memory card device, you can access tons of lakes directly from the Lowrance website. Then save to acard and load into you boats unit.

I have a lcx 28c hd fish finding sonar and mapping gps


I've had several similar units, and used them with Navionics HotMaps Premium series chips. You must select Menu. The "Browse files" to access the MMC card option. Once the selection screen opens, choose which card or file you want.

FYI...All of Lowrances HD models come preloaded with pretty much every major lake and river in the US.

Lemme know if this helps...

Navionics gold card & humminbird 78c2


Hi!
You NEED to have a gps lock in order for the card to show it's true potential.
Also check in the menu for a setting that says "Map detail" and change it to all available. It could be the setting is on a lesser choice (like the internal mapping and not the new sd card)
Hope this helps!
