Reading the Lowrance

5 posts in this topic

Where can I find a good tutorial (preferably a video) on setting up, reading and using my LX37C Lowrance? The unit works just fine, but I would like to be able to fine tune it better. The manual just doesn't seem to do the trick for my learning style. I learn better watching and doing than reading and doing it wrong...

Doc Bruce Samson really knows what he is talking about when it comes to Lowrance.

[Please read forum policy before posting again. Thanks. Admin]

One thing to remember when you go to manual settings is that everything has a teeter totter effect on everything else. For instance If you change your sensetivity you may also need to change your color line for the best veiw. Speaking of that your color line is generally best between 72-82% depending on your other settings. Ping speed also plays an important role when trolling slowly or stopped it should be at 25% or even zero. If you start to see vertical lines showing up on your graph odds are that you need to adjust your ping speed. If your up on plane set ping to 100%.

It takes some getting used to but pretty soon you'll be able to fly through the menu in no time.

Hire a guide to take you in your boat and teach you how to use it... thats what I did yesterday... and PS if you run your colorline that high you won't be happy how a transition to soft bottom looks...

Doc Bruce Samson's "Lowrance Instructional DVD part 1", "Understanding Sonar and Interpreting the Display DVD - Part 1 - Basic", and the New "Understanding Sonar and Interpreting the Display - 2 ADVANCED" are excellent training tools for the Lowrance product line.

(These do not cover the new HD line.)

Very straight forward tutorial and not hard to fallow, he teaches you to get the most out of your unit. They sell for $30 and most major sporting electronics retailers have them. You can find them on his web site too, do a Google for Doc Samson and it should pop up.

I happen to know Doc is working up a new DVD training series for the new Lowrance HD line, so watch for that too.

I highly recommend Doc's DVD's, they are the best tools for education available today for Lowrance/Eagle sonar and GPS systems.

    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
    • Ever been to Stevens Point or Wisconsin Rapids? 
    •   Maybe an "Inter-continental" belt is on the line here.....
    •   Probably no worse then the paper sludge biwaste that was coming out of that plant a few years ago!
    • Well it looks like we got out of expansion is pretty darn good shape. Haula + Tuch and we got a 3rd coming back to us, not bad at all. Tuch is no throw away prospect and could become a heck of a player some day but I feel like we still were able to keep our better prospects and center prospects which is big for us. Sounds like we still might move a D man to clear some cap space so maybe more fireworks to come. 
    • Thanks guys, appreciate the info!
    • Only so many heartbeats, lol.  Probably some study on hummingbirds or something and now the same rules apply to us and our consistent environment filled with healthy choices that are necessities for survival, just like a hummingbirds....  This was probably published by a group of medical providers that want to make you think it doesnt matter if you're lazy, fat, and dependent on "conditioned answers" to life's health and wellness questions and you will seek their "advice" when becoming ill.    
    • i've never done the plastic thing. but i've taken Reb's advice on planting grass, in particular filling in spots and its turned out great. so this is going to really hurt to say this, but Reb really knows what he's talking about when it comes to his lawn. i've also seen pictures.
    •   Right next to the river, no less.  Isn't anyone from the EPA concerned about this?
