Hummingbird 931c?

9 posts in this topic

Howdy all, was hoping a smart dude or dudette could maybe help me out here. As many know I took a little road trip to Ohio to pick up a new toy. It has a bird 997 at the driving console and a bird 931c up front. Love the unit, but it will not read my Nav Prem North Chip. The 997 will, and they are linked, waypoints will show up on both units but the map line from the Nav card will not. When I put the Nav card in the 931c it will not read it. Is this because of late softwear? Currently 3.940, however that too is what the 997 has. I assume now that the 931 is not designed to accept a map card even though it has a space to put a card.

I hope to call Hummingbird some time today, but was wondering if any of you may or may not have the answer to save me from sitting on hold for ever.. LOL

Thanks Jp--- still really didnt explain why I cant take out the map card and put it in the 931.. I really didn't care if I had to buy a 2nd card... but I have since found out that the 931 doesnt have cartography capabilities(IE Can use a Map Card)

DRATS!!!!!!!!!!! SO, now the decision, do I sell the 931 and get a unit that can or just live without mapping in the front of the boat. HOWEVER, the decision was made a little easier an hour or so ago.. Wife just lost her trasmision on her car.. OUCH!~

Congrats Deitz, I assume you mean when she lost her transmission she will be walking everywhere and you will save big bucks on gas, insurance, and such. Therefore you will be able to buy two or three new units from the savings your loving and now pedestrian wife has enabled you to buy? I am sure my ex would have done the same, then again she is an ex, and gone, said something about boats and guns when she was walking out the door if I recall. Then again, I was looking at a drop shot video when she left, so I am not too sure what was said. Seriously, sorry about the tranny. Maybe this made ya smile a little?

    • that would be samanthasquatch 
    • It's a female Bigfoot,  silly.
    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
