Lowrance X-15mt updating through website

5 posts in this topic

I need to update my X-15 through the Lowrance HSOforum. How do I go about doing this? Do I need cables to attach the unit to the computer? Will I have problems if my computer if I have a slow computer?

I'm a fisherman not a computer expert. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you,

Jeff

You will update the unit using the SD card that goes into the unit. You will simply download the file from Lowrance then put it on your SD card and run the update from your x-15 off the card.

Bare in mind that lowrance no longer supports the X15 MT.

I had one up until last year and really liked it, until one day it would'nt turn on anymore. Called Lowrance and they gave me the bad news, this unit is obsolete, we no longer support or service it. It was only 5 years old and it cost $1100 new.

They did give me a $200 voucher towards a new color X27C and it is really alot nicer than my X15 was, but another $1000.

I hope this one lasts longer than 5 years!

Both my dad and brother had problems with their X-15 graphs after they updated them. Depedning on which software version, they lost the ability to read depth in shallow water or weeds. If it's working now, then leave it alone. The only reason I would update is if you need to load the more current lakmaster maps.

I'm getting concerned about Lowrance? Why so many issues? If I have issues will they stand behind their product? My reason for the upgrade is so the unit can read the Navionics chip.

    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
    • I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday that turned out great, but the rack it sat on took a lot of soaking and scrubbing to get clean afterwards. Got any tricks to keep the rack less crusty? Spray it with Pam before the smoke or??
    • I stopped at a small engine shop on my way up north Monday and he confirmed what RebelSS said. I got some yellow tubing and after struggling for almost 1/2 hour, got the lines reconnected and went out and whacked some weeds. Thanks for all the replies.
    • I read somewhere that the chemicals used by Queens NY pest control caused male pattern baldness and birth defects in pet hamsters. 
    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.
