FL-18 question

3 posts in this topic

I purchased the FL-18 this past spring and since our ice was poor I never had the opportunity to use the unit. On this site I have heard many complaints about the bottom reading changing and I have heard that Vexilar has a new update to correct the problem. Since I have never used the unit I dont know if my unit has a problem I would hate to find out later. Does anyone recomend that I send the unit to vexilar for the update. I am not sure if everyone has had the problem but I hate to lose the machine during the short but valuable ice fishing time we have here. Thanks for the information.

Mako,

I would take the time to send the unit in for the upgrade. Most likely, it will need it.

Contact Vexilar thru their HSOforum, Vexilar.com.

You pay shipping to get it there, they pay it back. Turn around is about a week.

Good Luck,

Skeets

I had the problem with my unit but never updated.I needed it last winter and did not want to give it up and this summer it was just lazyness.
A couple days ago I brought my trolling motor down to The Motor Clinic in Bloomingtom and found out that that is also VEX Headquarters.I asked if I was to late to get the updated chip to fix the problem and they said no.They also added that if I brought it in they could fix it while I wait and would only take five minutes.
Motor Clinic phone# is 952-881-0898
They are located in Bloomingtom at 200 W.88th St.
Give them a call.I am sure they can tell you if your unit is one of the problem ones.They are a great company and stand behind their product.

    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
