H2Oc & Navionics question

12 posts in this topic

Bought a Navionics chip for my H2Oc but can't get it to zoom any closer then 1/8 mile. Is there something wrong here? Both of my friends have a LMS-522c and they can zoom much closer with the same chip.

The handhelds only go to 1/8 mile, my Fishstrike will go 1/11 ? I think or something like that.

Yeah, on my ExpeditionC, it's 1/8 nm with the Navionics chip installed, 0.02 mi with the LakeMaster chip inside.

The Nav chips will zoom in closer than 1/8 of a mile on the large screen gps units, but not on the handhelds. I haven't tried my Nav chip in my 332s yet so I don't know how far those units will zoom in on the chip.

I wish Lakemaster would resurvey Kabetogama! When they do, I'm selling my Navionics chip on hsolist! 1/8 mile is not good enough for me.

Your not doing anything wrong. If you want more detail it will have to be a new unit.

Yeah, I figured that out after I bought the chip.

Looks like I will go to next year's Sport Show trolling for a deal on a new LMS-522c.

I still find it interesting that Lakemaster can make a chip that allows me to zoom in closer with no problem. Now if they would just get out there and resurvey Kabetogama & Namankan!!

522c Great idea with all the problems with the mods not getting power. U should have little to no problems with that and it can go on the sled or wheeler come hard water.

The only problems I've heard of with modules not getting power are due to people not hooking them up correctly in the first place ...... I give a STRONG vote to external vs. internal gps ....... unless you want the internal because of mounting issues or like you say wanting to use it for ice fishing, etc.

Yes most are due to user aire. Or maybe they could give better rigging instructions? LOL 520 Is a better unit when they are run side by side from what feed back im getting from the pro's that come in. Never heard of a problem with a Bird yet Have you?

I've got the bird 797 external gps along side my 334 internal gps. Never lost a signal on the 797, but go under any bridge and the 334 looses it bearings, and turn the wrong way or lots of clouds and it fades in and out. Still no problems with the bird.

    • I would wager the FBI arresting members of Trump's team, likely starting with Michael Flynn. Flynn made 5 phone calls to a Russian Ambassador on the day Obama imposed sanctions. Trump's team defended the 5 calls by stating Flynn was just wishing him Merry Christmas, which is odd because it was December 29th.
    • Nick, so what are the top schemes the left plans to conjure up for impeachment?
    • Go Pats. They need one for the thumb.
    • And I am sure it will be a waste of server space You do understand that you just defined the meaning of the word conjecture don't you?     But there is conjecture so you have that  The only thing odd is that you are falling for the same type of fake news the Birthers fell for during the Obama years. Don't you understand you are quickly becoming the JV of libertopia?    Well, If you feel compelled then go ahead and forward your research to the proper authorities so they have a better chance at putting together the evidence to prosecute him because apparently without your insight they are not able to connect the proverbial dots. 
    • The dnc had russian propaganda that the russians hacked and released? Guess they provided the transparency the left is always so concerned about.
    • It's just a compilation of sources done on a public google drive. Pasting makes it searchable on this site.   https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzLcl2gcA6O_SWN3WWM4WTlMZ2M/view

    • Kind of off topic but I recently got a fl12. Having problems seeing the jig even with the gain all the way up. Works great until about 20fow and the jig turns into a in and out flicker. Switched transducers and still the same. Any advice??
    • Is there some reason that you don't post the link of where this is from?   Clearly this is pasted from somewhere, so why not post the link?
