Global map 5200c loading problems- navionics platinum hot maps

I just purchased the 2009 navionics platinum hot maps for my lowrance 5200c global maps and nothing happens when i install sd card. In the choose map drop down there is not a selection for navionics maps. I am running the 2.4.0 update. Does anyone know why i cant get this card to work. Navionics says my unit is compatibal.

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 and it works every time.

How do I get my lake map chip to come on


With your card in your unit follow these steps it should accomplish letting you view your map data.
push MENU twice
Highlight CHART push ENTER
Highlight CHART DATA push ENTER
Highlight LOWRANCE push ENTER.
You will note there is an option for Lowrance and Navionics, if you select Navionics you will see a distinct difference in the way the base map displays on your unit.
Hope this helps.

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 not reading navionic


Make sure that the 5200c is set to read the Navionic card. You can set that under Map Data.

Navionics gold sd card


Make sure that you go into MAP data and select this chart as the map info. You might just be using the internal base map right now.
