LMS 240 & Vexilar

4 posts in this topic

Here is a question for those of running these units.

I have both running on my boat. The LMS 240 has not been able to hold contact with the bottom. It does one of these numbers....58' then starts counting down till it gets to 1.6 then it flashes and resets. Then it will read 45' and start the whole process again. It seems to just pick a depth and then start the count down. I tried it with the Vex off and it still ran goofy.

Lowrance has been great and has offered to fix it. The GPS works great. I'm starting to think it may be the Vex but I see others running both units.

Has anybody else experienced this?

Thanks!

JIM

I run a a Vexilar next to my Lowrance X-75. Once in a great while there is interference, but most of the time not. The transducers are right next to each other, and each have different frequencies.

I've never seen it "countdown" like that before. I think the Lowrance needs some TLC.

If I had to say, I think you need a new transducer for the LMS. Everytime my 350a needed a new transducer it would flash strange depths. Does it show bottom on the graph portion? Or is it just broken up lines? If it's broken up lines and no solid bottom, you need a new transducer.

Funny that you say that Chris. I'm on my second transducer. Lowrance set me a new one about 6 months go. I will have to check how it "sees" the bottom next time I'm out. I'm always using the Vex cause I have faith in it....

Thanks for the heads up.

    • DOILIES. Those thing on yer man-cave table tops. So that's a pic of DOLLY, huh? Smurf 's ol' gal friend?       
    • The first piece that Golden State might be losing is Andre Iguadala. Would love to see the wolves grab him.
    •   Sure anytime. But, it kind of sounded above you were over Dollies?  Or was that Dolly's?  
    • With all the moist and cool weather, the slugs are having a feast on our garden plants.  My wife asked me to look over some plants that the insects were destroying.  Upon inspection, this is what we found - slugs.  The vegetables treated with slug bait were fine.  It was the flowers, asters, marigolds, pole beans, etc. that were untreated and weakened by some hail were experiencing a slow death.  Check this photo out of the slugs.  These were white like extra large maggots.  They are all treated and coming back strong.
    • WOWZER what a beast!!!!!!!!!!! that DNR  biologist, Mero, i had a talk with him he did the creel survey on our little lake up in itasca county, odd that he would comment about mille lacs since he was out of the grand rapids DNR  office!!!!!! good guy though!!!!!!
    • Crud. I knew that would come back on me. I'll haveta head up to leeches and borrow some of his table doilies.

    • And that's the key...it takes a guy or two to step back from the max deal and take a pay cut to keep this type of talent together. In the NFL, the Patriots are a dynasty because Tom Brady is smart enough to take far less than he'd command on the open mark to stay put with a great coach and build weapons around him...he values rings (aka, his legacy) more than a few more dollars. If GS can do that, they will be relevant for a very long time.
    • nope it didnt!!!!!!!!!
    • IDK, people pick apart the Hanzal/White trade as a mistake, but I don't. I think it was totally worth the shot to make a solid push. Going in everyone who did any analysis knew the first round was going to be full of 2nd round talent so losing a 1st rounder this year wasn't giving up much. I also don't think Fletch should make a trade for the sake of making a trade either. That is a desperation move and not one fueled by focusing on getting the team better. I would be shocked if someone like Scandella isn't moved in order to make room from Granlund, Nino, etc. We are really tight now with the guys we want to keep and have a few holes to fill beyond that so something has to give.
