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?

    • Does anyone have any good ideas, memories, experiences with any hunting trips that they would like to share?  My dad is turning 60 in a year and a half and I would really like to plan a once in a life trip that I can buy him.  That being said, I can not spend 20 grand on a 2 man moose hunt in Alaska and that is being generous on the cost of that one, more like 30 plus.   Looking for a moose, caribou like trip.  He has shot a big muley in the past and an elk, so that may not be top on his list anymore.   Just looking for ideas.  Thanks much.

    • Have not been around here much but always enjoy the "Turkey Talk" Count me in. Hunting Minnesota and Wisconsin. Archery for both.  
    • I put my feeders out 1st of May usually. Such a neat bird. We usually only have a few so they are territorial here. Fun to watch one guard a feeder and then zip down when another one comes. Maybe they get along in bigger numbers?   Up north at daughters inlaws on a lake the neighbors have 4 feeders under a big pine and usually a bunch of hummers. Saw about 15 one time and they got along fine. Pretty neat. 
    •   So that's the evidence you have about illegal wiretaps that apparently nobody else has besides Trump?  That Obama's a bad (or sick) guy?   Try harder.   
    • Yup, everytime i call you or del out to put up the truth about your own bodies, you dodge. Wouldn't that be the ultimate proof that your way of addressing personal health and wellness is more effective in preventing and healing?  I think you guys have an idea from what you've been told and not what you bring yourself to learn and you never put anything to use so, who are you really to share your opinion? A couple of blowhards, thats who.
    • What crankbaits do you like for the 7-9ft range?   Looking for something that casts/have action like a DT-10, but doesn't run quite as deep. I have some SK series 4, but they have the wider wobble which sometimes I don't want. The SK series 3's just don't cast that far, especially in a wind. Same with some others, they always seem to be smaller in this range.   Thanks. 
    •     Ok, I think I need to clarify my statement. My belief is they would be better off in letting ObamaCare collapse on it's own than passing "Obamacare part 2." My first choice would be to just repeal it. Then I suppose a debate can happen  
    •   Ryan's bill is a direct taxpayer subsidy to the healthcare industry, via the insurance companies.  I think we have enough experience with subsidies to know that the outcome generally isn't good with that.   Probably the best thing to do is just repeal the ACA, and hand it back to the healthcare industry.  But that isn't likely to happen because there is just too much money involved.   Like any other slippery slope, the sledding is pretty good going downhill - not so easy going back up...
