Networking Lowrance

3 posts in this topic

I have 2 x27c that I had professionally installed. They were networked together to both use the same GPS antenna (puck or whatever you call it). This was to mark or drop an icon on both units at the same time. Now, it doesn't work like that. I don't know if I changed something on the units unknowingly or what. I read what it said in the manual but I don't understand what all that means. I did unhook everything at one time and then remounted/installed it again and maybe I didn't hook the splice thing that they plug into the right way. I hope this makes sense and someone can give me some pointers on how to hook these together the right way. Thanks

If you have the right version of the software you can share waypoints, that means you set a waypoint on one unit and it will show on the other unit (as long as both units are turned on and networked together).

If you have an earlier version of the software you can't do the waypoint sharing. And it doens't work for icons, only for waypoints.

Waypoints that are already on one unit will not automatically show up on the other unit. You would need to transfer them with a SD card, the waypoint sharing is only for new waypoints that you set.

If it used to work and didn't, the most likely reasons would be that you unchecked the share waypoints option in the gps setup screens, or you loaded an earlier version of the software which doens't support that function. Hope that helps, good luck.

Hey thanks PerchJerker I think that's what I was doing, hitting the "icons" instead of the waypoint. I'll try that, and I'm sure thats what it was.

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
