marcum woes

Recommended Posts

hi i bought a vx 1 pro for my wife a couple weeks ago. it was noisy on advice from here i returned it. after this week of using this one. the screen constantly moves back and forth i called marcum they said its out of tune. also when i got it the arm was broken. they said to return it to the store called them they didnt have one so i drove to another store about 40 miles away that had it. this one seems ok also i have another marcum vx 1 never had a problem. bad luck or did they all get dropped or did something change just bummed out my wife loves having her own

If they are not digital you can expect noise that is for sure, Vex usually louder than marcum but both have the spinning brushes inside...that's how they roll! As long as it marks depth and fish just gonna have to deal with it and be thankful the other one is quieter.

Even though its new, is the battery fully charged? Swap the battery from your "old" one to the new and retry.

The ONLY time I ever notice noise from mine is when the battery is low or bad. Granted mine isnt a VX1, but still worth ruling out the charge as an issue.

    • I have not purchases Forscan as I have access to an  OEM scan tool. There are somethings that the Forscan software can do that IDS cannot with Asbuilt. I have ways arround that. Just to clarify, you may not have to purchase the software to do what you want but use their free version. This is worth exploring. As for the OBD interface, might want to ask that question is a specific f150 forum and get an idea of what others are using.    High speed and medium speed compatibility would be nice for future toying. For your truck, you only need high speed interface. I can't remember what pins. Your truck has a gateway module DLC.  Basically it's a router that allows the different networks to communicate, but also your scan tool to communicate with all the networks over HS CAN 1 and 2.   The only software related mod I have done to my car is change the 3 turn signal blinks to 4.   Happy modding!
    • Ok that makes sense. When I saw swan I figured it was an member id. When I went to cub today I asked the HS kid if they had any  I got "I know we have them I just don't know where they'd be". I said freezers maybe by the other tots he said "what makes you think that" You can't make it up!
    • I think Schwan's is what was meant.   https://www.schwans.com/products/product?id=60297   The operator person will bring them right to your abode.

    • Box? i don't think I've ever seen them but will be looking in a little while
    • Buy a box of cheesy tots.  Cook.   Use rack over sheet pan on grill or in oven.  😀
    • Cheesy tots sound great! Anyone got a recipe?
    • If you're feeling adventurous some time follow the same process you just explained but instead of using a rib rub try using a generous amount of Montreal Chicken seasoning with yellow mustard as your glue.  Also, try a wing or thigh before using the Famous Dave sauce.   Goof Luck
    • I took wings, thighs and legs and put rib rub on them and let them sit for 4 hours then I smoked them for about 90 minutes this morning. Tonight I put them on the grill to crisp up and slathered with Famous Dave's. I seem to kill chicken on the grill but with the smoker I can regulate better plus all that flavor. Only way I'll do chicken now!
