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.

    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
    • Fletch's hands are totally tied by his own doing, keep in mind our 1st round pick this year was 15 games of Hanzal...definitley not worth it. Fletch needs to get off his duff and pull the trigger on a Scandella trade real soon for a decent Forward and not pass up an OK opportunity by "hoping" for the homerun and missing out on a good opportunity.  IMO our only hope is that other teams are "watered down" more than we are and that our vets can hang in there one more year.
    • Wondermous!!  Anytime, fivebucks! Years of workin' on that stuff does count for something!!!  I wish ya WOULDA bet me!!     Glad ya got 'er done!!!  
    •   I just can't help myself when I look at Boober's goodies!!!      Wait....did that sound right?
