SD Cards for IFinder

7 posts in this topic

I purchased a 2GB SD card on sale at Office Depot. It is a "ativa" SD 60x high speed 2GB card. When I use my Map Create 6 to make a map I save it to the card however when I put the card in the GPS it does not go past the start up screen. Then it just keeps trying to re-boot. I have other chips "Lakemaster" and "Navionics" lake chips and I have made maps on previous chips with less memory and they all work. Does anyone have a solution to my problem? Is there anyone else out there that has had the same thing happen to them? Please help Phil.

I had a similar problem when I tried to upgrade my I-finder software. Turns out I was also using a 2gb card, which I found out was too big of a card. I am sorry, I forgot what the limit was on card size...but it can be found on the Lowrance HSOforum. Down size the card and you shouldn't have any problems.

Update: Their HSOforum states that they have tested SD card up to 512mb. Anything larger than that could be a problem...as you described. I got this from the H2o I finder online owners info. I hope this helps. Good luck.

Wow, it's hard to come buy 512 cards these days. Getting hard to even find 1 gig cards.

When I got my H20C last October I also picked up a 2G card. It only recognized 1G of it so I returned it (the card).

I had trouble with my H2O reading an off brand SD card. Popped in a SanDisk and it worked.

Try another card to see if you can get it to work.

Thanks everybody. I have used a 1gb card I guess I will just go get another one the only problem is that you can only use up to 5 cards with the program and I have lost all but my new card. So I will have to figure out how to register another card. Has anyone ran into that problem? I think I will just try re-installing the Map Create program again and see if that works other wise I will have to contact LEI. Thanks again Phil.

    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
