how to read graph mode lx67 ice machine?

5 posts in this topic

Can you name some specifics otherwise the basics are: Turn auto sensitivity and auto range off. Adjust the upper and lower limits manually within a foot of bottom depth. This gives you the best fish vs jig separation. Turn zoom to 4X and go to split screen mode, you can now adjust the zoom w/the < > anywhere in the column and can see the "big picture" at the same time. Now, lower jig down and turn up the sensitivity till you can see your jig moving on the screen as a solid line and there's little black dots on the white backgroud. Then adjust colorline to allow for the full spectrum of color. I like the IceView for a color scheem (ex. as fish get closer the color goes from black-blue-green-yellow and red is directly under you).I fish on busier lakes so I leave my noise rejection on high and adjust surface clarity as needed. The DVD that mine came with is also helpfull. I believe you can get it through the Lowrance HSOforum.

Here is a semi-helpful vid I found over on the Tube --->

RedBandit explains the menu functions well and Federline made a great post about a year ago about 'dialing in' the X67c.

I noticed that the history search is now only 3 years - my posts are getting ready to roll off the backend of FM, so here's a cut-n-paste of history. smile

Ice-Friendly x67c settings:

Go the graph mode (I use split-graph), and try this:

1) Turn off Autosensitivity: Menu, Auto-sensitivity, Enter to get rid of "X"

2) Turn off Auto-depth range: Menu, Auto Depth range, Enter to get rid of "X"

3) Set depth range: Menu, Depth Range, select your Max depth to display (pick only as much as is needed to see bottom), Enter

4) Crank up chart speed to 100%: Menu, Chart Speed, select 100%, Enter

5) Turn on all digital filtering

--> a) Turn on Surface clutter filter: Menu, Sonar Features, Surface Clarity, select High

--> B) Turn on Noise Rejection: without hitting anything else, Down Arrow to Noise Rejection, select High, EXIT button (you can decrease these later if you want, but I run them both on high all the time)

6) Change Ping Speed around, start at 100%: Menu, Ping Speed, select speed, Enter (try other speeds, too)

7) Now, re-adjust sensitivity (Since I started doing this, I have never gone below 90%)

You can now flip between graph and flasher displays if you want.

Graph Display Mode:

When you go into Split Screen Mode, the left window becomes the zoomed window. Turn off the Auto-Depth feature. You can select either 2x or 4x for this pane. The right pane remains as the full water column. Use the up and down buttoms to scroll the zoom window up and down the water column to where you want it. Can't do this in flasher mode - there, you can only zoom in on the bottom 6 feet.

Is it safe to assume this general setup could be used on my 522?

    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?    
    • Gotta let youse guys carry on wid something!!! 
    • so why did you say it then!!!!
    • IDK, I am kinda liking this show more and more. Its much better than the first season. Yeah, Madison has her quirks, but there are some interesting characters and this whole conflict with the indigenous people now is intriguing.
