lowrance 350A

11 posts in this topic

Help,
This is the second time my 350A has wiped out my GPS coordinates. Has anyone else experienced this with there's???????? I spoke with a service rep at Lowrance and they told me it shouldn't happen. The 200 waypoints can only be deleted one at a time. Let me know if you've experienced this same problem and what you did to fix it. Maybe it's time for a new graph and GPS??????

I had the same problem happen to me a couple of years ago. I sent it in and they replaced the whole unit.

Update!!!

Lowrance no longer works on that model. They will give you a break on a similar unit.

I e-mailed them about a friends unit not turning off, and that was the reply I got back.

my lms-350a went out last fall and called and they will let you up grade to the newest model for about 1/2 the cost of a new one . . so i would give them a call all they ask is that you send them the old unit first then they will send out the new one.. it took me about week and a half to get my new unit back.. goodluck

Tom, what was the unit you upgraded to?? I have a 350 and had recieved a letter from lowrance the last time in for service that offered a "trade in deal" but it was for a limited time, on the x15,16. wondering what you paid the 249 for??
btw,htis unit has been great, the only problem Ive had wth the 350 is the screen cover flaking, I found out after sending it for repair that maguires 17 will fix it with some buffing.

Mineman & Tom,
I just got off the phone with Lowrance they told me that my memory board is bad and they'd upgrade me with the same technology that I have for $799.00. I'd have to pay to rewire the entire unit, transducer and GPS.
Since I paid $899.00 for the original LMS 350A, I think that it's a rip off.
How many others do you know have had this problem????? I know of at least 4.
They call it customer service, I'm thinking more like class action. Who's to say in 3 years we'll be in the same position again.
I'd appreciate your thoughts!

thanks for the info Lucky, did they give you a total of what your unit is worth? or what price the replacement unit retailed for? Id be interested in what they told you (if they did). Im planning on calling them myself about an upgrade, and it would be good to know anothers experiance for comparison. I dont have the gps mod included in the trade.
Thanks

Minneman,
They quoted me for the LCX-15 MT $ 499.00 without GPS and $ 799.00 with it. I can purchase the entire unit at a retail store in Walker, MN on line for $ 1099.00 or just the depth finder for $ 699.00.
Don't forget that you have to completely rewire your entire unit also.
So in 3 short years, I'd have $ 1698.00 into this mess.
I'm thinking the X-87 or X-97 and going to a hand held GPS. If there Customer Service continues to stink, I'll switch to another brand.
Lowrance has a big problem and they know it.
It's just how do you make it go away.....
Makes me wish I still had my little green box.
I feel more stiff than lucky today....

    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
    • Just random ones I like. 1) Grand Marais fall. 2) HSO member Laker fishing. 3) Door County Wis.
    •   Yep and the Hawks won again!
    • Choosing 3 "best photos" is tough, but here are 3 of my favorites right now.  Cottonwood vs. Lightning Morel cluster  Pup in the snow
    • Missed the game but I guess I am glad I did. 9 games to go, still time to right the ship but at this pace the blues are going to pass us up.
    • Waiting for the new H'birds I ordered.  Hope it shows soon.  I be using the LCX as long as I have to.  del,  yes it is 10 inch screen
