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.

    • Good luck Anyfish2. Saw quite a few out in the rain driving home today    
    • Well, i will try my hand at picking up another bird for the team starting tomorrow.  Weather looks to be challenging at best over the next 7 days.  I will give my best effort when i can get out.   Birds are still hanging around the area well,  hopefully i can get a tom to break from the Hens.  
    • and this?   
    • Sure seems like a nice little bait. Takes the topwater frog to a whole new level.
    • They talked today about the D inability to find shooting lanes....I like Reilly's ability to walk the blueline with the puck and shoot quickly...maybe he could help...but he is not physical by any means... BB stated he wants a big physical Dman for starters.
    •   Good stuff...the main diff between Chicago and Mn was the way the Bowman took ownwership of the problem and Fletch did as expected today and blamed a hot goaltender, danced around pointed questions...he did however admit we are in a tough position with the Cap and few draft choices but steered clear of ownership to that problem....did you listen in by chance...it was almost laughable
    • BB, I cant say I disagree with any of those observations. They didn't produce when it counts. That is what really matters, but it isn't the first time that teams excel in the regular season and flop come playoff time and it certainly isn't something that is isolated to the Wild. The Hawks get some slack because they have won 3 cups in the last 7 years, but fact is they have been bounced in the last 2 1st rounds too. By that, they are no better than us. We will see what happens to the Caps. They have a tough draw with the Pens this round, but its not a stretch to say they will get bounced 2 years in a row and be the Presidents Cup winner. Lots of teams have that issue. Anaheim has had that tendency too. Playoffs are a whole different animal. The team makeup that works in the regular season usually doesn't translate well in the playoffs. I agree the Wild need more beef. Staal certainly helped, but they are far from a heavy team especially on the back end with our D. Early on I thought we had one of the deepest D corps in the league. Looking at them in this playoff series they looked weak. We needed a guy like Folin to step in and play some minutes and make a difference, but he was shell-shocked in his first playoff game. I don't think we have much help in that area in Iowa either. The heaviest guy we have Seeler, is a liability big time and I don't know if he will ever make it up to the big club.
    • You can pre-order on a Japanese web site ... i almost did but got spooked out with all the Japanese language and had no idea how to translate and know what shipping and price was LOL     i want one but will wait!!!  so many lures and not enough time
