Lowrance LMS-520C and Minn Kota Universal Sonar

8 posts in this topic

I currently have a Minn Kota Powerdrive 2006 model with Universal Sonar. I'm looking at getting the LMS-520c to use with the trolling motor, but I'm not sure the two will work together. Does anyone have this setup or know if it will work? If it will work, did you need an adaptor?

Thanks, John

My rig came pre-rigged with a 520c and a Minnkota terrova with the US, so I had nothing to do with the setup. They seem to play nicely with each other though.

Do you know what year your trolling motor is? I think the trolling motors after 2006 use the universal sonar 2, and my trolling motor is using the universal sonar before universal sonar 2.

I have a 102c with my power drive. You will need cable to run from the graph to the minnkota, minnkota sells these for a wide array of graphs. You will also need a power cable with fuses for the graph. And then whatever you want to use to mount the graph, I used a RAM mount.

I think I will probably upgrade to a different graph on mine so I can network it with my 27c.

I have the 520c but it's connected to a slightly newer Minn-Kota with the revised US2. Seems to work well.

i don't have universal sonar on my motor but have used it in other boats and was pleasantly surprised by how well it seems to work.

Haack, the US1 compatibility list does not show the 520C.

    • My wife and I like to float down the Crow from Rockford to the Mississippi. Hardly anyone on the river except Bald Eagles. Found some nice chicken of the woods mushrooms last summer.
    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
