Lowrance LMS 350a

3 posts in this topic

We were getting the boat ready and I admit I started playing with the Lowrance but yesterday we went out for the first time. I turned on the unit and I would get the depth and charting info but the scroll side wouldn't work. Any suggestions would be helpful.

my suggestion would be to upgrade to another unit just call lowrance and they will help you out... i had same problem last fall when went up to lake of woods my 350 went bonkers thought at first it was the fuse but changed that and still nothing.. i have many other guys complain about 350 going haywire. my buddies has same problem called lowrance and they will fix it for ya but it is more cost effiecnt to upgrade.. they want 250 to fix it and they will upgrade you for about the same price.. really not worth getting it fixed since same problem might happen again.. hope this helps you out.. tom

I don't remember if the 350 has a stop chart function, but the X-15 has one. I accidently hit a couple times. It took me about five minutes to figure out what I did the first time it happened. The 350 has been a good unit for me. The only time it has given me problems is when I have interference from another sonar or a flasher.

    • Thanks Rebel, very good answer.  I've been keeping track of the pressure for a week, now. 
    • Hey Rebel, what do you consider low and high pressure?  Perhaps a stupid question, but I just got a weather station so now I can start tracking barometric pressure. Right now the numbers don't mean much to me, been around 28-29% in the south metro the past few day and I don't know if that's low, high or middle.
    • Low pressure signals a front moving in, (Bad weather, wind may be  from the east or north) which usually puts them "on the feed", can have some hot and fast action. Likewise, a swing in the other direction, a high pressure system , (wind from the west or south) which signals clear skies and sunny weather, may do the same. The key to me, anyway, seems to be hitting it just as either front moves in. An extended low or long high may result in poor fishing. Remember the old adage, which also has to so with the pressure: "Wind from the east; fish bite the least...wind from the north , the fisherman goes not forth, wind from the south, blows the bait in the fish's mouth; wind from the west, is when the fishing is best". 
    • Those trumpers sure know how to keep things classy.
    • Is it true, the lower the pressure, the bite gets hot? Or the higher the barometric pressure the fish slow down on biting? 
    • Is that like saying "the lights are on, but nobodies  home.?
    • Newsie's where reporting on how the lights are on in the white house at 5am...   "First time in a long long time.."    
    • Beautiful!!! Can I ask what your dry brine for the side pork was?
    • Don't forget to get your Dihydrogen Monoxide detector as well!!! That's what we really need to be worried about!! Especially on and around lakes!
