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!!

    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • 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...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • 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.
