Lowrance net Question

5 posts in this topic

I am networking a x25 and 337 together on the new rig.

GPS puck is in the transom, 25 on the council and 337 on the bow.

If I have this figured out right I need 3-T's 2-15' extensions and 2-2'extensions correct?

All bue network connections.

I will be powering the net from the x25 only.

I may eventually add a fuel flow sensor at some point in time if the need arises.

Is there anything else that I'll need for the basic network?

The 3 T connectors is correct for 2 units and 1 gps puck, if you're powering the network from one of the units.

With your setup and the 2 15-foot cables I assume you're putting your T's under the console and running one cable to the bow and one cable to the transom? If so they should connect directly to those units and you should only need 1 of the 2-foot cables??? It depends on where your Ts will be, and the units you're connecting too.

Don't forget that you need 2 terminators for the ends of the network.

With the units you're using you can power the network from one of the head units. But if you think there might be an HDS unit in your future you might want to power the network with a power node and separate T connector now --- an HDS unit will plug-and-play right into your existing network, but you can't power the network from an HDS unit. Lots of guys have run into surprises this year when their network "lot power" because they switched to an new head unit. Definately not something you need to do, just something you might want to consider.

Dave,

Thanks for your help today, I'll get back to you on Monday and let you know what I need so you can get it ordered for me.

I think that I'll do the network, but I might wait till I get back and have more time to install it right.

I want to see how the dealer put the 25 in.

    • Everything turned out awsome, I'll definitely be hanging the bellies again. Cold smoked then heat with more smoke.
    • love the answer thirdeye!!!!  hang onto that last bottle!!
    • Should be some good games today, I'm definitely rooting for the Falcons and Steelers but I don't know man. The Pats just seem to play the best team ball in the League. Guys step up and perform at every different position.  The Packers are just scary in the post season, not so much the whole team but that dirty dog Aaron Rodgers.    I hope they both turn out to be competitive and exciting.

    • You miss the Bush administration? Howso considering the Obama administration was pretty much the same only cooked a little longer?
    • many of my 2nd graders have more frontal cortex development........
    • My trailer is a bit over 20 years old. It was redecked 10-12 years ago with 3/4 plywood decking that was not treated and that lasted about 10 years as well so it seems a decade is the lifespan of regular plywood left outside with no treatment.    I replaced the deck for a second time this year and used treated plywood so we will see if that makes it more than a decade. I would suspect you might expect at least that much life from advantech even though it doesn't seem to be rated for continuous exposure if I read it right.
    • That's what I miss most about the Bush administration. Sure, they were evil, but at least they were freaking competent. Sure, they lied a lot, but at least it wasn't about easily disprovable things like crowd size. When they lied, they lied to further their agenda, not to mask their hurt fee fees.   All Presidents are ridiculed.
      This is the only one who takes it personally. Such a baby. Sad!
