    Well if reset dint work then it can be a flaw in the Circuit of the device which can be repaired only at a service centre buddy..So please take it to the Service centre also claim your Warranty..

    Following the manual can be recommended only for normal circumstances which is not your case my friend..The circuit is Skipping which can be corrected by us during a reset which did not show any effect for you so i will highly recommend you to Service it!!..

Hello
I don't know whether you have made a factory reset to this device or not. If not, set it first and see whether it helps you. To make it factory settings:
[1] Press 'MENU""MENU" (down arrow to system setup) "ENT" (down arrow to RESET options/ ENT
[2] The unit asks if you want to reset all the options. Press [<---] to YES and then ENT. All options are reset, and the unit reverts back to map page at 4000 miles zoom range. Any recorded sonar logs of GPS data will be unchanged. OK.

On my Garmin GPS, if I turn it off, then go outside in an area where it can connect to the satellites, then turn it back on, it will no longer be in simulator mode.

My Nuvi is stuck in "Simulating GPS" mode. How do I get it back to live mode?


Press the menu button on the nuvi, then press the system or the simulation button, and tell it the simulation off or disable. I have a older model, and it is under system menu.

Lowrance LCX-27C has power but only opens to the splash screen then powers down


The LCX-27C will draw up to 1.5 amps when powering up, if that amount of current is now available, it will power down. Double check your power connections. The +12vdc supply must be able to also supply enough current. Once you get it to stay on you can temporarily shut off the transducer by going into full mapping mode, or switch it to sonar simulation and the current draw will drop considerably. When you are ready for the permanent installation run solid connections directly to the battery and be sure to use the inline fuse for protection.

GPS Does not work


If you have a memory card inserted, remove it...if the problem goes away, try replacing that card. If the problem occurs with any card then...

Try installing the latest update from http://www.lowrance.com/en/Downloads/Product-Software-Updates/
even if you already had the latest...try installing it again.

If the problem occurs with any card, and after updating or attempting to update, there is a probably a malfunction with the XOG and it will need to be repaired/replaced. The Lowrance contact by phone is 800-324-1356 and go to http://www.lowrance.com/en/Support/Product-Support/Contact/ to email them.

I have a Lowrance x-51 Fishfinder that seems to be constantly in the simulation mode. IDing fish that aren't there and showing depths incorrectly. Took to BPS they said its broken. How much to repair?


You should be asking the repair guys about how much it will cost to repair. They determined the specific parts that have failed.

The members here are not fortune tellers and crystal ball readers. We have no idea of what parts have failed inside of your unit!
