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?

    •   Hopefully the trend towards "the other white meat" will bring down the cost of beef brisket
    •   No, weekends was when the wife could get you outside to do some yard work!
    •   They are now making a cloth made out of trees and it seems like the plant is doing just fine. I have not noticed the "smell" since the conversion. Always made me wonder why the smell was the worst on weekends. Kinda thought that maybe the EPA did not work weekends 
    • We are heading back up to Isle Royale for the 4th holiday weekend ,,, Hope to have another video when we get back 
    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
