The "Module not responding" message has nothing to do with the GPS display unit. This is a problem with the antenna unit. The unit is crammed with solid state components. This problem arises when the unit is exposed to direct sunlight. This causes over heating and failure of the antenna unit. The only solution is to replace the unit as Lowrance will cannot repair it. They will however, sell you a new one for around $140.

    I'm having the same problem "gps module not responding". Lowrance sent me a new antenna...didn't help. I tested the voltage to the antenna, and I'm at 12.02 so that's not the problem. My next step is to call Lowrance again and see what they suggest.

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.

Alarm says" gps module not responding"


"GPS Module Not Responding" is the display units way of telling you there is basically no GPS module connected. You didn't say which unit you have, so I am assuming this is something like an LMS-520? The GPS module is the LGC-3000? If this is the module you have, 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, 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 troubleshootin 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.

Need to know the connector brand and the functions on each pin


Because Lowrance doesn't publish the pin connections, neither in their user guide, neither on a convenient website - this is really a breakpoint for me - I checked GPS connector suppliers and I found different plugs, type and connection codes in Europe, where information comes with the unit as a EU - norm

Lowrance 3300c still playing up


John, my 330c was doing the same thing until I found a short in a totally separate system. It was a speaker for the stereo. As soon as I fixed it, the flashing problem went away.
