Lowrance 350A problem

6 posts in this topic

My Lowrance kept shorting out this weekend every time my aerator kicked on. It worked fine when the big motor ran, but acted up when I was drifting or running the trolling motor. The 350A is hooked up to the starting motor battery.
I hooked my dad's 350A up to see if it was in the unit, but it did the same thing. Is this a wiring, fuse or battery problem?
It also wiped out 102 GPS coordinates, is there anyway to restore these?
A frustated fisherman.....
Any help will be appreciated.

The GPS spots are gone. Were you using a marine band radio? Is your starting battery a dual purpose or a crank battery? Its best to wire the unit to its own battery if possible.

Derek,
Thanks for the reply. The GPS spots were completely wiped off somehow. Everytime I shutdown the big motor, the depthfinder would remain on until the aerator would kick on. Then it would start flashing and beeping until I'd shut the aerator off. I do have a marine band radio, but didn't have it on all weekend. I'm not sure what kind of battery I have, but I know that my bilge, aerators, (front & back), and running lights are all running off of the back starting battery. 1999 Lund 1800 SE
Does this help?

Has anyone else ever experienced losing all of your GPS coordinates on a 350A. Is there any way to restore these?
What kind of battery should I buy to run my 350A on alone?
Thanks!

lucky, that's sucks about your coord's. You don't need a different battery for your electronics if everything's hooked up right.

If its not a battery problem, do you suppose it could be a problem with the pins connecting the GPS? I'm still confused as to why this is happening. Anyone know if Lowrance can help or am I wasting a phone call?

    • Was clearing some downed trees from trails this morning. Checked a couple of trees and would you look at that. I didn't look very hard so I'm sure there are more, but of course have to head to work. Cold weather predicted after today though...  
    • Fished the Chip this weekend and found some success.  Lots of crappie action in select bay and bottle neck areas near warm water, timber and old cabbage.  Bobber and minnow was best, but anything was working.  We kept 10 smaller fish for the 3 of us and that was plenty of fish for us.  No need in keeping 25 fish (what a joke).  I wish the DNR would reduce the limit in WI!
    •   CM..that is a big "if" and pretty much the story of the series...good puck possession, lots of shots, few goals...and they have to find guys that can score against the "Allen's" of the world going forward...we aren't going to be playing against trash tenders come any playoff time.   Agree with your observation on the D zone coverage...way too much stick checking all over the ice by both forwards and Dmen...lack of putting body on opponents is either A  - pure laziness or  B - simply outmatched physically. This has to be addressed going foward.   Quite frankly I cannot think of one player that stepped up in the playoffs and played above their reg season...not one.    Haula seems to be a headcase...I don't think he is near as good as he thinks he is and tends to beat to his own drum IMO but we might be stuck with him. Ek will figure it out...playing in the World's now after playing in the Junior World's as well so he'll keep working on his game and be a good one soon IMO.   Will be interesting to hear Fletch's spin on things when he assesses things publicly soon but my guess is it will be "the sky is not falling...blah blah blah" same dump every year.  Sounds Like Leo is keeping him unfortunately...but he's made his own bed, now he has to sleep in it and there are not many GM's in the NHL that envy his postion IMO.  
    • So this is my first year playing Bassmasters Fantasy Fishing, What does the Own % mean and does it have anything to do with the points you would earn if that person is on your team?  Or is it a % of people that have picked that person.   Thanks
    • What are my choices?   I have a pump, well actually two pits with two pumps, one on each end of basement.   Probably half horse pumps?   I don't recall what they are.     So if I get one of those battery back up things, ideally I would want it to protect against both pump failure and power outage.  I figure power outage is maybe 12 to 24 hours except for some real disaster here in Rochester.   Pump failure could be days if I am out of town.   But if the battery charger can keep up with the average draw, it would be ok.   Pumping head is about 5 feet if that matters.  
    • If possible, get doctor to give you prednisone or an inhaled cortico-steroid like flovent or asminex (assuming you have prescription drug insurance)   Or the codine cough syrup if nothing else.  It is cheap.  Need a prescription, though
    • There also the 360 things by some companies.    
    • Hi all,   Any advice on purchasing a side image depthfinder? Worth it? Brand & model?   Thanks!   Ref  
    • Which size are you referring to? 
    • How much current do the battery pumps draw?
