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.

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!!

    • Talked to one of their guys at the Ice Show last week,  what I believe was their entry level w/ramp (like 6.5' x 12') door was over $13k.   I thought it was quite pricey with really not much for any options.  Quality appeared to be good but way more then I would spend for it.  Their biggest selling point is the light weight and pounds per square inch on the ice.   They do have  channels on the inside to run you wired through if you want to add items.   The inside was extremely bright - almost to bright for my eyes.   I believe they said they are located in Litchfield, MN.
    • I would give your first statement 5 Pinnochios.  The first tax increase on people making less than $200k he signed was only 16 days into his first term.     "1. A 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco: On February 4, 2009, just sixteen days into his Administration, Obama signed into law a 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco, a hike of 61 cents per pack. The median income of smokers is just over $36,000 per year."       And then, of course, the big one is Obamacare, which was ruled a tax by the Supreme Court, and affects many taxpayers under $200,000.
    • Trump is way ahead of you there buddy.    
    • The only tax change that occurred was allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire. All tax bills must be introduced in the House of Representatives, so if you are unhappy with the current state of taxes, you should start there.   Also for those wondering, Clinton's tax increases would have added about $140 billion per year in tax revenue.
    • Sooooo....we were at a breaking point before Obama care....anyone actually think their policy under Trumpcare is going to reduce costs with an increase in benefits.....over an extended period of time?
    • The Art of the Deal......
    • So in a nutshell, you wouldn't really recommend buying U.S. Treasury bonds for an investment.
    • I'm not sure on how much foam it took.  It has over 2" on the bottom.  What happens with the cold surface is you have to "flash" the surface with foam then go over it again, it uses more chemical to do the same job.  So the price to do a cold house is more.  The foam comes out hot & creates more heat during the chemical reaction.     The froth paks were more expensive than having it done in my case.
