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.

    • Think im gonna try good old grass clippings since they seem to replenish themselves very rapidly
    • My good buddy from back in SD does fantasy and we have another group we are apart of and he ended up tied for 5th overall last tourney. After day 3 he was in 3rd with the possibility to win it. So close to getting that $2500 basspro card
    • After the cold snap, temps on Trout were back down in the high 40s. Back around 53 now, and should keep warming if the forecast holds. Fish have already moved shallow, bedmaking and piscine lovemaking will follow soon for the brown ones. I am hitting Leech tomorrow...will be interesting to see what water temps are in the protected parts of the bays.
    • Here's some useful information: go shallow, and chuck a swim jig with a paddle tail trailer and set the hook til your arms fall off. Better?
    •   If you like to tinker with guns, you can get a surplus Saiga for a couple hundred bucks.  All sorts of accessories available for these, and they can also be converted to 12 gauge if that's your preference.          
    • I was out last night on a local lake and was surprised to see the water temp down to 57.  Caught a couple cookie cutter fish, but not the big ones I was looking for. Fished a lot of weeds in the 6-9ft range, but not a lot going on there. The biggest one was still shallow in some reeds, so not sure if we are still in the spawn/post spawn stage.     Whats everyone else seeing out there for a bite and fishing conditions. Big weekend coming up, Good luck!! 
    • Maxine_Partain, Welcome to the forum.  There seem to be a lot of folks from Canada joining up in the last half a year which is nice. The sad thing is they all seem to make about 3 posts on the same day they joined and then they never come back which is sad. Hopefully you will keep posting.

    • hi and welcome to HSO. I think you mean double hung not double pane. if you have moisture between the panes you have a seal failure. depending on the brand you might be able to just replace the glass. If you have lots of rot you may need to do a complete replacement. Best to have a window person pop by and check out the situation.
