20 Most Recent Lowrance Lms 522c 5" Screen Color Internal Gps And 200 Khz Sonar System Questions & Answers

I'd suggest calling Lowrance.. Those guys are very helpful with step by step support... I just purchased a used boat with a 525c df on it and been troubleshooting some problems with it. Central time zone and best to call right when they open or turn on the phones at 8:15.

Chances are your GPS puck antenna is bad. They have a pretty bad rep for failing and since its now at least 5 years old , you have been on borrowed time. You can get replacements on Ebay. Your temp issue is unrelated . Might be time to upgrade.

You should be able to use most any normal water transducer that that will work on that unit. The key issue is that it needs to be 'fluid coupled' to the ice. Just create a small puddle on the ice where you want to see thru and it should work fine. You might coat the transducer base with a thin film of silicone grease to prevent freeze sticking it to the ice. A small gas torch might simplify creating the puddles.

Grab some quality paper towel. Then get either a spray bottle of Windex, Spray and Wipe (the one with Orange Oil works well) or some diluted Simple Green.

Spray the cleaner onto the paper towels (not directly onto the screen) then wipe screen clean. Follow with a dry paper towel to remove any streaks or cleaner residue.

Go into your gps settings in the menu and then select "Initilize GPS". That will basically reset your GPS and it should find your location. It can take up to five minutes so initilize it and crack open a cold one. when you get back your location should be on the screen.

You need to reinstall the software for your GPS so that it works again.What software version is the LMS-522 currently running: How to see what software your LMS-522C iGPS is using: Press the MENU button twice on your LMS-522C iGPS. Select SYSTEM SETUP. Select SOFTWARE INFORMATION. The software version for your unit is located under the line that says "LMS-522C iGPS" (ex. "Version 2.4.2").

Please revert for further assistance.

If it is normal in deeper water, it is most likely just returning stuff in the water (debris, algae, anything floating around...choppy water can cause this). Try installing the latest updates from http://www.lowrance.com/en/Downloads/Product-Software-Updates/

If it doesn't help, adjusting the sensitivity or setting the SURFACE CLARITY option from the SONAR FEATURES menu to LOW, MEDIUM, or HIGH...whichever gives the best results.
