Lowrance LMS-334 question

4 posts in this topic

I have a LMS-334C and have been having trouble with the internal GPS system. My questions is that I have bought an external GPS puck, and was wondering if this GPS puck would help pick up my signal and location faster? Also would this external GPS automatical work or do I have to change some settings in the system? Thanks for the input...

I don't think you could use 2 gps antennas in one system or on one unit --- each antenna will be giving different info, so the system can use only one of them.

I'm not familiar enough with the 334 to know if you can run an external gps on it. I'd think you'd have to turn off the internal gps and I don't know if you can do that or not???

Good luck getting it figured out.

I have the 334CiGPS as one of the units on my boat.

I had problems with it not finding and locking on sats. Then i downloaded the upgrade patch from lowrance and installed. Then i had to turn WASS off, and then it operated like a charm.

I too was thinking of getting an external antenae for the unit and read a little about it. I believe you have to get the network plug adapter and then simply hook it up to the external antenae. You will have to go make a change or two in the menu settings, but i know it will work.

Try the update and turn off WASS and see if that helps first.

Thanks MuleShack for the information, I will have to try to find the settings in the Menu screen to have the external antenna override the internal antenna...

    • Well got the unit today first Impressions are I'm really happy with it...I like how the maps included have depth shading...The screen seems very nice...The only thing I don't like so far is the quick release bracket, I feel like I'm going to break it when I pop it off. The transducer is pretty darn huge, not sure if all side imaging ducers are like that or not...Overall very happy for $499, cant wait to get it on the water.
    • Hey you guys!...had to fly into Phoenix couple days ago to check on some golf stuff and while wandering through a big supermarket saw a display of Canadian pen-raised walleye.  It was 18.99 a POUND.   Can you believe that!?  A stinkin'  little 16 ounces of walleye for THAT much money. If a guy could put up with all that sloppy, soft wiggle-wiggle of a battle to boat one a guy could make a pile of money catching them.  Personally,  I'd fall asleep in a walleye hot bite.
    • What's kind of interesting is there were a few crab apples by my old work and they would eat some in the fall. But in the spring when they must get just ripe enough. It would be a pile on of Robins, Blue Jays, Squirrels and they would clean the trees in a few days. Like a good wine they must know when its time!

    • Shell is complete, had trouble finding a door luckily a guy had a camper door on hsolist that will be re-skined with the black .040 exterior siding.  The aluminum siding was supposed to show up yesterday, but dint for what ever reason and will be delivered on Tuesday.  Installed the bracing for 5 holes, HDPE on the skis will be in tomorrow to be installed hopefully next week also.  As you can see I built a ladder for the top bunk, I am assuming once the kids stop using it as a playhouse that area will be converted into storage as this is just a day house.  Any input would be appreciated.
