H2OC

6 posts in this topic

I do not know if this is the place to ask this question or not, but here we go. My H2O seem to be taking longer and longer to pick up sat. Sometimes I will be driving down the road and I will loose sat.( I will be in a wide open area). It is pluged into the cig. lighter, so I do not think it is a battery problem. Wrote the factory and they said hold the pages button down and power button down at the same time and when it starts, let up. Still doesn't work like it used to. Any help you guys? Thanks in adavance

Even if you're in a wide open area your vehicle roof will block it big time. Does it do the same just standing outside?

I've found that if I set mine on the dash while driving it will lock in much quicker.

This is what I do as well. Also, if you're nowhere near where you were when you last had it on and locked in, it sometimes takes longer to lock in.

mine took over 30 minutes to lock in in the middle of the lake in a open boat even held it up in the air thats why i sent it back now the new one locks real guick. also it had a note with it it stated to not store it any place that can reach 150 deg which I think a dash mount might reach that also under some boat covers so watch that.

    • Man, I can see cream cheese but peanut butter? I may have to give it a go sometime, maybe the bacon will off set the oddness?  
    • Sorry I missed that. The brown and blue wires are the Transmit TX and Receive Rx wires for connection via single cable to NMEA 0183 compatible devices. nmea 0183 is the protocol for compatible devices, computer, plotters, auto piolet, Radar, radio, etc. All of these devices including your GPS can be connected to a single cable. The brown and blue wires allows the sonar to communicate to other devices. Google nmea 0183 compatible devices for a raft of information on what this is. My brother, a charter Capitan out of Cortez FL. uses these devices on his boat for off shore fishing up to 100 miles off shore. Nice to have to talk to other Capitan's ship to shore, radar, GPS and  to get back home without running into sunken islands.  
    • Trump stumped on terrorist quiz as he can't identify the leaders of ISIS and al-Qaeda – but Carly Fiorina shows she knows her Nasrallah from her al-Julani Radio host Hugh Hewitt asked Trump and Fiorina the same questions about terrorist leaders in separate taped interviews on Thursday FIorina answered confidently and Trump seemed flummoxed, confusing 'Quds Forces' with 'Kurds forces'

    • I ask the same thing about the other 2 candidates, especially the one that is your favorite.   What do you care? I thought he was irrelevant anyway?  
    • Oh yeah.  I keep forgetting about all that modern computer stuff in cars.   So the computer would notice the tranny didn't shift all the way down as the car stopped?     There goes that theory.    And why only after a couple hours of driving?   Some sort of overheating of the transmission fluid?  cooler plugged in the flush process?    Here is a question for Carpmaster..... Is it different in the summer vrs winter?   Like you only have to drive 50 miles in summer and 200 in winter?   You guys that actually know can feel free to ignore my suggestions if you don't want to waste time answering.  
    • leech, it does sound like an odd concocktion.  but you gotta try it.  225 for 2 hrs, helps if u use thin bacon.

    • Sorry, I thought the model was listed on the title of my question.  Anyway, Garmin 53dv EchoMap.  This one has downview, but is chirpless.  Seems like nice unit, tough.  Just wondered about those 2 wires.  Thanks.
