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 say your results speak for themselves, we often do things that don't make sense or trade short term gain for long term trouble. Nature does things for a reason that we often don't understand, why try to fix what isn't broken?
    • Two charter boats. (11 people) Fishing was very slow last Sunday afternoon (8), but we did really well on Monday morning (43). Due to bad luck drawing cards, neither Mrs Duff or I touched a rod on Sunday. She went 5 for 5 on Monday. That's fishing for ya though. And true fishermen understand that.   Some real nice fish this year, good luck to those that make it out there.      
    • And no, it does not have some sort of virus. They are calling it a phishing site and it is not. It competes with Google adsense so it make sense for Google to be sloppy in their algorithm.
    • Great storytelling with pictures on a portion of your life experiences in the  great outdoors.  Thanks for sharing Len.  
    • Len - This was a very nice article.  I enjoyed your writing style.  Take care.
    • I am going to pick up a box to pattern against what I am shooting now. Here is my question. They are available in both 1 3/4 oz. shot and 1 7/8 oz. shot in 12 gauge. In a 3" 12 gauge #5 shot shell, that comes out to a 21 pellet difference. The velocity for 1 3/4 is 1200 fps, for 1 7/8 is 1080. At 20 yards it would make very little difference, but say at 45 yards would you rather have the extra 21 pellets or the added velocity? I suppose the answer is to buy both and pattern them, but I am curious as to the thoughts of the folks on this board. Thanks
    • I was looking to get an otter XT pro cabin this winter, I was wondering of anyone on here has an otter in the pro platform and how they like the extra insulated walls. Does it seem bulky? Too warm on above 0 days? I wouldn't mind just the normal cabin but they only offer it with a bench it seems but having the extra insulation may be nice to have for those cold days here and there. 
    • Thank You for the very interesting and enjoyable morning read
