lowrance ifinder hunt c trouble

5 posts in this topic

I'm having trouble with my lowrance hunt c gps. it takes 15-20 minutes to find satellites even when i have new batteries and a clear day. anyone else having this problem? does anyone know what i can do to make it pick up satellites faster?

It sure seems like this a common problem with the Hunt's... I have two friends who have or had them - one friend replaced his three times through lowrance and ended up biting the bullet and downgrading (without any refund) to a H20 and never had another problem. The other friend still has his, but is experiencing problems like you're describing (which is the same problem the other guy had trouble with).

I don't know what's different between the Hunt and H20, but the Hunt sure seems like it has problems.

Yes...The H20 Hunt is a pain.

I've never gotten mine to work right...I've sent it back and replaced it once. Thinking about sending it back again.

Sometimes I do days without it connecting...

I have noticed that some area's seem to connect faster then others though...but do not know why.

I have an h2oc that also takes about 10 minutes to locate 3 satellites. I think if you turn off "waas required" it should get you up and running faster.

Go to pages 79 and 80 of the instruction manaul. Use the initilizing command to get the unit to search for the right sattelites. If you turn on the unit tooo far from where it was used last it needs to be told to look for different sattelites.

    • Thanks Rebel, very good answer.  I've been keeping track of the pressure for a week, now. 
    • Hey Rebel, what do you consider low and high pressure?  Perhaps a stupid question, but I just got a weather station so now I can start tracking barometric pressure. Right now the numbers don't mean much to me, been around 28-29% in the south metro the past few day and I don't know if that's low, high or middle.
    • Low pressure signals a front moving in, (Bad weather, wind may be  from the east or north) which usually puts them "on the feed", can have some hot and fast action. Likewise, a swing in the other direction, a high pressure system , (wind from the west or south) which signals clear skies and sunny weather, may do the same. The key to me, anyway, seems to be hitting it just as either front moves in. An extended low or long high may result in poor fishing. Remember the old adage, which also has to so with the pressure: "Wind from the east; fish bite the least...wind from the north , the fisherman goes not forth, wind from the south, blows the bait in the fish's mouth; wind from the west, is when the fishing is best". 
    • Those trumpers sure know how to keep things classy.
    • Is it true, the lower the pressure, the bite gets hot? Or the higher the barometric pressure the fish slow down on biting? 
    • Is that like saying "the lights are on, but nobodies  home.?
    • Newsie's where reporting on how the lights are on in the white house at 5am...   "First time in a long long time.."    
    • Beautiful!!! Can I ask what your dry brine for the side pork was?
