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 have an old DC drake call that is deadly
    • The only form of alternative medicine that I've found to be effective is the use of leeches.  Treatment is fairly simple but almost always effective.  All I do is take the leech, put it on the end of a hook and cast it into a lake.  I start feeling better almost instantly. I've found you need to repeat treatment on a regular basis for best results. 
    • My Sister in Law died of metastatic lung cancer a few years ago.   She didn't know anything was wrong until it had already spread to her bones.    Lung cancer is one that is pretty tough to cure, since it often isn't caught early enough, among other reasons.  In the case of your mother, I would guess that the reason they didn't complete the procedure was that the cancer had already spread (metastasized) to other places, like the other side of the lung or other organs, or bones.   So it was a terminal situation at that point.   Could a more extensive evaluation, PET scans, MRI, etc spared her the surgery?   That is sure a possibility.  Did the surgery have an adverse effect on the course of her disease?  That seems less likely, although the surgery itself surely was a negative thing.    But in all cases, regardless of what the Chiros claim, manipulation of the spine to align subluxations would have done nothing to affect it at all.  Neither would Reiki,  copper bracelets, Laetrile, or an orgone box.  
    • Ha !..not so... Only bait I might fall for is a cold beer, and a chair at the computer.... #SICKHILLARY
    • Go it, I like the surgeons loop.  going to have to give that a try!   Thanks,
    • I guess you weren't watching during the nominating process.  Sure people are getting on board now.  That is irrelevant to my thesis. 
    • Thanks for the suggestion Hawg. The old window was single pane privacy glass, so all it did was let light in. I kind of figured that this will prob frost up and we have a fan that can put on it. The main reason I put it on there is because I didn't like the idea of having a piece of glass in the V on the traffic side.
    • *chuckle* That didn't take long. "What did you use for bait?" A black dude, Hillary, and a cat.
