shouldnt have done it!!!version 1.6 anybody have it

13 posts in this topic

Does anybody have the version 1.6 laying around on a chip?? had that on my LCX-27c and had no problems..but after talking to a bunch of people and scheels was convinced i had to update and did..but now the last time out when i go 30-35 mph i loose bottom..never had that problem with the version 1.6..unless im missing something ..but i'm pretty savy with graphs and have tried all adjustments..just hoping to go back to what i had on unit..so if anybody has it on a chip email me at gofishingtom@clearwire.net and i could give you my address and pay you for shipping and when done send it back to you..

thanks in advance

Bad move for sure.

Calling Lowrance and waiting on hold for a long time is another option if you can't find the software from someone.

You won't have to ship the software it can be E-mailed to you.

Good Luck!

If it aint broke dont try and fix when it comes to Lowrance software upgrades!

I have done every update when they've come out and haven't had any problems or complaints with them ...... don't have the LCX 27 though so maybe that one's different ...... but I've liked the added networking features and haven't had a problem with losing depth readings like some people have reported.

You don't here alot of problems with any of the new Humminbirds. I wonder if Lowrance isn't doing so good since Navaco baught them out. CS is tuff when on hold for so long. The guys you talk to at that store can get you the reps cell number. I know you will get a call then.

Generally good advice for any firmware/software update, regardless of make/model, unless there is a known issue and your unit exhibits the problem.

Nice call PB!

Just throwing it out there, but was there an upgrade inbetween the one you did and the original and you just jumped to the newest?

I know it might be remote, but some times you have to install in order.

I thought I had the version you were looking for, but it is for the lcx-25c, sorry. I have updated to the very newest versions for my 112c and my 25c and have had no problems.

Sorry.

    • I have been meaning to try to stick a yote too whenever I was out I hoped one would show up instead of a turkey.
    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
    • Got out Saturday morning. Perfect weather. Jakes and hens. Had a new group of 6 hens come in with no tom or jakes.   Did have a yote come out of nowhere right into my dekes. 12 yards. Just as I was drawing on it , it must have scented me and booked. A second yote crossed about 50 yards out. Sticking a yote is on my bucket list.   All in all a great morning.    
    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
