lake chip problems

8 posts in this topic

When i use my navionics lake chip in my lowrance handheld, all is fine, contours, depth readings, etc.... When i use it in my Lowrance LMS 334c, I get the contour mapping but no depth readings...Do i need to switch/activate something.

Thanks,

BHS

Go to menu and scroll down to map data and make sure you are set up for the correct chip. Does the little black chip flash in the lower right corner when you have the chip in? If not your unit isnt picking up the chip.

It is set up for the correct chip. No luck still.

If you go into Map Data or Data Options Displayed or something like that. I think there is a menu option you can check to display what you want. I don't have mine handy or I'd check it for you. Should be easy to compare your two gps though and see where they're not set the same. Good luck.

Still no luck. Went to the Navionics site and did some of their suggested troubleshooting and nothing as well. The chip I have is a 2005 navionics hotmaps SE; it works fine in my handheld Ifinder, depths and contour lines show. In the LMS 334 iGPS that I have the only thing that shows are the contour lines. I have had multiple lowrance units so I know how to go to the Map data section and pick the correct map. I put a different lake chip in my lowrance and the depths and contours show up with that one in there, but that is an older one and has less lakes on it.

Any further suggestions would be great!

Thanks.

Is it possible the chip is just too big for that graph? (too much data)How old is it? Im not familiar with the 334. I had a 320 and it would only handle older chips with less data on them.

Im sorry if you already knew this.

Hmmm, that makes perfect sense and would stink if true. Anyway to add memory?

Can you check if the chip is compatible with the LMS 334 on the Navionics HSOforum or talk to technical support?

    • I have been meaning to try to stick a yote too whenever I was out I hoped one would show up instead of a turkey.
    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
    • Got out Saturday morning. Perfect weather. Jakes and hens. Had a new group of 6 hens come in with no tom or jakes.   Did have a yote come out of nowhere right into my dekes. 12 yards. Just as I was drawing on it , it must have scented me and booked. A second yote crossed about 50 yards out. Sticking a yote is on my bucket list.   All in all a great morning.    
    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
