Need help rigging up 2nd GPS unit

3 posts in this topic

Hey guys, I need some help. The boat we bought had an LCX20c at the console already. I want to wire up so I can take my LMS332c from the old Lund and mount on the bow and run in conjunction with the 20. I picked up 2 blue T connectors and 2 - 120 ohm Terminators and an extension cable. Don't need sonar, have separate unit at bow already. Do I simply pull the network cable from the center socket of the 20, insert a blue T, hook the network cable (from the puck) that I just disconnected from the 20, to one end of the T and the extension cable to the other end of the T, and then plug the ext cable into the network socket of the 332 at the bow? And do I assume that there is probably a 60 ohm Terminator that Y's off the network cable from the puck? If so, do I leave that, or remove that and add the 120 Term, then add the other 120 terminator to the open end of the T at the 332 unit? And how do I power up the second unit - or is that taken care of by hooking into the existing unit with the network cable? 10,000 Casts, if nobody can help me out is it okay to call you on your cell or at work tomorrow for some advice? Thanks everyone.

Keith,

You shouldn't have a problem with the other unit, but if it doesn't pick up reception, give me a call on my cell. Also, I wasn't 100% clear on how you were getting power to the bow unit. If it is comming straight from the starting battery then you will need a toggle switch even if the other unit already has one. But if you are bringing in power from your console then you will be fine. Anything else, let me know.

Thanks John. Got her wired up, and GPS works great. Two things I can't figure out though - temp flashes on the second unit at 32, while the 1st unit reads air temp accurately at 65. And it won't show local time, even though when I go in to the system setup it shows time exactly. I'm okay for now. Only other thing bugging me is the LCX20 w/Navionics chip is showing all water over 20' deep as white, even though I don't have the "fill water with white" checked. I would prefer it shows all water as blue so I don't get fooled and think I'm running into and island or something. Any ideas? Good luck this weekend.

Keith

    • Eaves would have been nice, better to the ducks than someone else. They beat us last go around but we were way better and Gibson won the game by himself.
    • Wow...Ducks get Eaves from Dallas for a conditional 2nd round pick...pretty cheap rental IMO..where were the Wild on this deal...oh ya we don't have a 2nd round pick 
    • Update:     Put some fresh gas in, sprayed the carb valve with some cleaner and cleaned the filter.  Also adjusted the idle speed up a bit. Runs great again!   Thanks for the advice and help everyone! 
    •   Nope...I think that is an original Bear55 Quote but Yogi Berra would be jealous if he were still alive.   Agree on the Blackhawks...when the season ends they will probably be the favorite to win the cup IMO so it will take an upset by any team to knock them off...would love for the Wild to be the ones to do so....it is getting very interesting as the trade deadline and playoffs time approach!
    • Out here (Virginia) our lakes are dirty and warm, and from what I understand, saugeyes thrive in those conditions. Our walleyes are all stocked since very few of our lakes have suitable spawning habitat and there is little to no natural reproduction.   Really looking forward to catching a saugeye just so I can cross it off my list!

    • Funny, that is the same face I get when I think of people voting for a reality tv star in as president. Worse yet he is some kind of billionaire, like the general public should ever trust one of those guys in public office.
    • More like Yogi the Bear but if I stole his quote my apologies.  Have to get that Chicago gorilla off our back, don't care if they win 4 of the next 5 cups, we just need one and I will be a happy camper.

      I'm not liking that they found some decent youth to play with Towes, we need to pounce before they fill in their gaps with depth and scoring again.
    • I am up to 27 in ND so far.  Waiting for more snow to melt.  Cold weather and deep snow makes the deer really group up out here and makes for easy shed hunting, but is really tough on the deer.  The 4th pic is one from some round bales that the deer were destroying earlier this year.   The biggest I find year to year is generally around that mid 60" range.  And I found that one (first pic) in early Janruary.  So hopes of finding a bigger one this year is low haha.
    • The only Merc I saw in Belize was on a parted out boat 75ft from water. Otherwise it was 70% Yammy's, 15% Honda's, 10% Suzzy's and a 5% hodgepodge of Evinrudes, Tohatsu, ect.......
