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...

    • I doubt they make much difference in towing, and the actual research says that they don't, and may be worse.  Do a search for "frontal area" on your favorite search engine for an explanation.   I like the V front for the bathroom area.  It works out to be about the perfect amount of space.

    • No, it's bigger than that. That's not chicken feed Foghorn Leghorn.
    • I think it all depends on whether you are looking for at a 14' + 3' V or a true 17' box. On my house I put the door on one side of the V and stove and counter top on the other side. I would have lost a lot of room and at least one hole is it weren't for the V. 
    • What you obviously don't understand is deficits are not moderate.  Economic growth is much slower than the climb of the debt to GDP ratio.   https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/GFDEGDQ188S   Also, several foreign countries have scaled back purchases of treasuries, increasing yields, and putting upward pressure on interest rates.  If interest rates rise, (as they naturally should) interest on the debt increases, and the effect would be to put even more pressure on trying to maintain a balanced budget.   Here's that pesky $9 trillion figure again - quoted from St. Louis Fed:   If the increase in yields is a result of the pullback, then foreign demand might be crucial in keeping a cap on borrowing costs. This implication is especially important if the U.S. national debt increases by $9 trillion over the next decade as projected.2
