Lowrance X125 Software Update

5 posts in this topic

Does anyone know where I can find the latest software update for Lowrance x125 depth sounder? I loose depth at all depths and all speeds. I've moved my transducer and tried a new one with no luck. I figure it must be a software issue. Example, if I come to a complete stop, it can take 3-5 minutes to register the correct depth.

You can't update software on a x125 - that's a depthfinder only and doesn't have a card reader for SD cards like the gps units and combo units do.

It sounds to me like a transducer problem, but assuming your old transducer and/or your new transducer were okay, it must be a problem with the unit itself. The only other idea I have is that you can try is making sure there's no electrical interference, ie. try moving the transducer cable away from the power cable and your boat's wiring just to see if that helps. Good luck getting it resolved.

I would have thought with the right cable (computer to unit) you could update. The Lowrance HSOforum shows that this model should be on version 1.7.0. Mine is operating on verison 1.1.0. I had my Humminbird matrix 27 updated the same way. Don't know. I took it in to a dealer and they said it would be 6 weeks to send it out and to get it updated. For me, that would be the end of my season with my depth sounder.

Does your transducer cable run anywhere near the motor control cables? I have a 510C and ran the tranducer down the right side compartment that held the motor control cables. The unit worked fine until I throttled up. It would lose the bottom contact at about 10MPH. At the recommendation of shop that sold me the unit I moved the cable and problem was solved.

Thanks for your help. I tried moving the cables with little change. I talked to Linda Colt at Lowrance, this lady is a god send. She reply's to emails almost immediately and in the end, without any hassel's, is sending me a new unit.

Thank-you Linda.

    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
    • I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday that turned out great, but the rack it sat on took a lot of soaking and scrubbing to get clean afterwards. Got any tricks to keep the rack less crusty? Spray it with Pam before the smoke or??
    • I stopped at a small engine shop on my way up north Monday and he confirmed what RebelSS said. I got some yellow tubing and after struggling for almost 1/2 hour, got the lines reconnected and went out and whacked some weeds. Thanks for all the replies.
    • I read somewhere that the chemicals used by Queens NY pest control caused male pattern baldness and birth defects in pet hamsters. 
    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.
