5 posts in this topic

My question is has anybody got there downloads in a email and transfered them to a sd card? i got the 1.6 version for my LCX-27 and the 1.7 version for the lms 520 and a file name phantom_2.lrt (58KB) the 1.6 is 2MB and the 1.7 is 3MB now as i read the directions it says to put all on chip and load into the appropriate unit..Has anybody done this download..i just dont want to load everything into my unit..Hoping someone will tell me that the one for the 27 will go into the 27 and the one for the LMS 520 will go into that one..

Does anybody know what an LDR file is?

Why not download to a card from Lowrance.com yourself?According to the HSOforum the current update for an X-27 was on 3/10/08 version 2.3.0 ,8.6MB.Then erase the card and do a seperate download for the other unit LMS 520,3/10/08 version 2.3.0,8.6MB.Lots of good info on their HSOforum!Good Luck,Salmi.

i bought my 27 last spring a year ago and it had 1.6 on it and was talked into the latest and greatest so did the upgrade to 2.3 and now theres a 2.4 coming out very soon.but i had no problems at all for the year i had my unit and when did the upgrade now when i get on plane i cant see bottom and blinks what the last depth was..frustrating..so i'm hoping that i can go back to the 1.6...as for taking it off the websight i am running a vista computer and it doesnt work for me..so called lowrance and he emailed me the 1.6 version so hoping it works..was told by tech that my transducer is in wrong place..well why did it work last week and upgrade and now not work!!! it reads great when im going 10-15 mph then go fast and nothing..

Problems popped up with the 2.4, so many guys reloaded the 1.6 and there units worked better.

The new version is supposed to have that 2.4 bug fixed.

    • What exactly will you be using it for? Driving around the country with the top down, hunting the back woods, fording small creeks?   Do you have a particular budget to stick to?
    • at times the prop will stop on mine, usually when I move it to turn, need to tear into it sometime, I have use fishelectronics for misc. parts
    • I might have to get out and test drive a few and figure out what I like and don't like. Definitly not buying new so Ill narrow it down a bit and then wait for that cherry to show up.
    • Good job on getting it done with a limited amount of time left to hunt.
    • Love the curvature of the antlers.   Beautiful mount!
    • Not a monster for sure but he makes the season a success. I wasnt going to be able to hunt tomorrow because of a first communion, not afternoon today because of my dads birthday, and only evenings Monday&Tuesday.  So time was limited and i am more than happy to eat jake. Here he is.
    • Either I'm slackin', or the sun is rising earlier than it did last year! Didn't make it to the river until 6, but surprisingly I was still the first to arrive  walked to my normal starting spot, but once there, something told me to go out of the ordinary. So I packed away my black panther martin and put on a crayfish husky jerk. I didn't catch the trophy I desired, but I did catch some nice ones, with the biggest being about 15 inches. I ventured farther downstream than I ever had before, and wanted to keep going, but it appeared that the fishing easement ended, and I may have been on private property. I stayed in the river the entire time, but didn't want to push my luck, so I went back upstream. Caught 19 total, probably lost at least as many. Surprisingly, no brook trout though. 
    • Oh yeah, a lot of the newer 1/2 tons have frame rust issues as well.  If you want a serious off-road machine, you need to go back to the models with the straight front axles, and of course, they're getting harder to find in decent shape too.  Especially in the rust belt.  You can still find solid older trucks if you head west, young man...        
    • Just to be clear- The wrangler wasn't introduced until 87 so at least compare apples to apples and having owned ford,chevy and dodge trucks of the Wrangler era I can testify they all have issues. My 08 Ram had more frame and fender rust than my older Jeep. The Chevy's have plenty of frame issues as well. Yes. It's a concern but if you want something like this,there is no better alternative.   https://www.google.com/search?q=chevy+frame+rust+problems&client=opera&hs=Lrs&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjAnPz1kMrTAhVpw4MKHSs9B1UQ_AUICigB&biw=800&bih=381
