Question about GPS

1 Answer

I have an Eagle GPS/FISHFINDER and upon re installing the unit on my new boat I dropped the Module/antenna (egc-12w). The system is now showing GPS module is not responding so I assume I have Knocked something loose in the antenna/module. How do i take it apart to see what has happend or is this a sealed unit with no way of diassemble.

UNfortunately, this is the stroy with electronics these days.........the japanese/china supplied parts (most of the electronic consumer products) come as sealed units OR with micro electronics that are almost impossible to repair....so, unfortunatley you are looking at having to replace the antenna module only.....sorry

My new Lowrance Hook-5 GPS isn't working, I'm a noob, how do I get this function working?


'isn't working' is such a broad problem. If it is only the GPS, it is covered from Page 49 of the manual and shows you can access Satellite information. Note, it almost certainly won't work in your garage or storage. It need to see the sky as the antennae is internal.

The unit has an installation guide. In my personal opinion, it is better to let a professional boat engineer install it, mainly for the correct fitting of the transducer on the stern. Correct placing makes all the difference to a good set up, unless you intend to fish without the engine running.

All they need is mounting, power through a fuse direct to the battery, and the transducer fitting. Then you put the boat in the water and switch it on.

Eagle 462c will not power up


I called Lowrance and since Eagle has been discontinued, they no longer service them. However, they will offer to upgrade to Lowrance. I ended up getting a HDS-5 for $480.00. Not a bad deal since my Eagle was toast.
