Software update

8 posts in this topic

What exactly do you need to update the software on a LMS-522i? I have been on the Lowrance site and they tell you to put a blank MMC card into a reader and download the update to the blank card. Place the blank card into the card slot on the locator and it will automatically update. Where do you get a card and a reader? Hom much are they? Thanks. I tried searching for this topic in the last two years but I didn't find anything.

Do you have an SD slot on your PC? If not you can buy SD card readers that plug into your USB port on your PC at any place that sells PC's. Best Buy, Circuit City, etc. Cards you can get anywhere as well. You shouldn't need more than a 1 gig, and they are pretty cheap now. I've seen 2 gig chips for as low as $15. Just make sure you get the SD card so it fits in the unit. They are the same size as the lakemaster chips.

THat is what I was thinking I needed but I wanted to make sure. The lowrance site didn't really get specific about what was needed other than operating software and free space. My computer is pretty old so I need the USB port. Thanks.

I see you live in Circle Pines, I live in Lexington and I can assist you with the down load.

Only takes a few minutes and can save you from buying what is needed.

You can't do PM's on this site, they aren't enambed. You would have to email each other. Just an FYI.

Wow, I just updated my 525c df last night. I don't think it could be any easier! Load the chip in computer download. Open the lowrance, insert chip, turn it on..LOADING..OFF. Done just that easy. Thank you Lowrance.. Another quality product!. Now I am going to take it up to Millacs to check it out!!

    • well factor in cost of living and its a wash
    • Same ol story. The Liberals cant handle defeat. Like when Gore lost and Kerry lost. They just cant handle that there are people outside of NY and California and that they own guns, drive pick ups and vote.
    • My brother-in-law is serious about his whiskey, and he usually drinks either Crown or Pendleton.  My wife has drank Windsor for years.     Can't stand the stuff myself - probably got sick from overloading on it in my younger days.  Strictly beer for me - preferably a good craft beer, but normally Grain Belt or Schell's if it's available.    
    • Their, there. I was.  Not overly excited by anything I saw. Did get to shoot the Gearhead bow and was fairly impressed. Some uniqueness to this bow, and completely reversible right to left so dealers should like that as far as reduced inventory they must carry.  And the lightest crossbow out there. The new Halon shoots extremely well but like its predecessor just too heavy for my taste.  The Bowtech Reign felt pretty good, but again nothing special.  Everyone makes a roto molded cooler, trail camera, and broadhead nowdays. Liked the cast aluminum tree stands from Rivers Edge at a better price point than others.  Hawk is making some neat treestands and accessories. Goldtip was doing a demo bending their arrows vs other brands and was quite amazing how much farther theirs would bend before breaking, and how much their arrow recovered (would not take a set) after bending vs the other brands. I might switch just because of the durability and straightness factor. Got to hold the new world record Tennessee non-typ.  That's a lot of horn.
    • Therefore, if there is no point in making a point, that makes it a moot post to make a point that there is no point. so I'd like to point out that I find this entire dialogue pointless.    Sillytown has run amuck. 
    • Ayup. They asked me to take his place, but I can't stand Rawlings.    http://www.gasmonkeygarage.com/yes-aaron-the-bearded-wonder-is-leaving-gas-monkey-garage/
    • That does look like a fun day!
    • What? This can't be. Aaron's the real car building brains of this show. Richard is just the clown. Together they made it work. Apart?
