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.

    • We can only hope to catch a bigger party crappie than him! 
    •   I never followed the Farve story, so don't know the details.  If I had to guess, it would be similar to Rush's.. Rush's story was more interesting to me because he is such a complete hypocrite on the issue.   Arizona hasn't legalized weed, but they are taking on the prescription drug problem, which is the root of the hard drug problem.  (You know, the part you and the feds refuse to acknowledge.)  I suggest you view the "RX to Addiction" video I posted earlier, and the link above to see what steps they are taking.    The feds actually act as an enabler for hard drug addiction.   If you have done your homework at all, you should know this.     Pointing out the double standard for enforcement of drug laws is part of the answer, which again, you refuse to acknowledge.          
    • How come you aren't talking about Bret Farve? Same as Rush, didn't go to jail either.   Are you aware of any cases of people going to jail for this behavior?   They don't seem to make the news.     AZ way behind, several states already have legalized recreational weed.   It is coming nation wide.     For me, the real question is what are sometimes called "hard drugs".   Heroin, Cocaine, Meth being the big three with a whole bunch of others like fetanyl etc.    Making them legal and sold otc like recreational marijuana seems to me like it would be a bad idea, although there are folks that seem to think otherwise.   And they are part of the "war on drugs"     So, I keep asking the folks here who are saying "end the war on drugs" what that means.     So far, not much for concrete answers.   Fingerpointing at affluent pill addicts that get treatment, or those that die, is not an answer.     

    • Of course they are Nick, that is what they do. The sad part is you only think one party is capable of this, your not nearly as dense as JV so you should be picking up on these things by now. Just because one party is less evil in your eyes doesn't mean you shouldn't see through their negative contributions to this country.

    • Hardly, I'm advocating we had the worst two choices in the history of America that I am aware of. Well done two party system, you make yourself less relevant by the day.

    • Ha ya I didn't realize he was that bad. I haven't heard anything relating to protecting players at the trade deadline CM so hopefully that is bunk. I suspect Chuck waits until the prices come down and picks up someone for cheap that will be just a filler, these guys are going for pretty high prices right now.

    • Isn't this up your ally Del? He probably has some success but it would depend on the "patient". Many people have probably healed themselves through the placebo of religious beliefs. If it works it works, who am I to argue if they are getting results but I will admit I doubt anything works across the board for everyone, we already proved that with modern medicine. 
    •       But Trump is going to make America Great Again, so he should be more open with his press briefings, even if it means some of the reporters aren't always friendly.
