LX6-7 future updates

Recommended Posts

Was wondering if everyone is happy and feel that MarCum has resolved all the issues with these fish finders or do you hope they continue improving some of the issues and release more fixes.

I have a LX6 and it came with the 3.1 software and updated to the latest 3.7 software and feel they did make a step forward but still feel there not done with some making this ff were it should be.

Yes they will continue to make updates making the units better and better, thats the great thing about them being updatable keeps older units as current as the new ones without having to buy a whole new unit...

I believe they will always make updates. Innovative companies always strive to improve and marcum has build a flasher that allows for continual improvements without the need to charge for a new product all together like is required by mechanical flashers. I have a few details I would change if marcum was making my LX 6 custom for me but others might disagree and I don't expect marcum to cater to my needs. Dynamic depth was really the only issue marcum didn't have working right but that's not an easy feature to nail down when you thing about how sonar works and it's working well for me with 3.17.

Bottom line is that you hear a lot about marcum updates and issues because they are upgradable but you would hear just as much about mechanical flashers if they were upgradable. Instead you hear about what features are better among models instead of upgrades to make them better. I still own my 12 year old Vexilar and it has never had an issue and I believe they make a great flasher but I think I get a lot more useful features with my LX 6. Now I hope Vexilar comes out with a digital flasher because I'm sure it will be a great product but the growing pains will probably be there just like they were with marcum.

Thanks all for your input

I had sent an e-mail to there customer service and asked if they were still working on a future update and i received this response

My thought was this wasn't a very friendly informative answer

Hello

I do not have any information on any further updates for the LX-6 or LX-7. I am not sure when the next upgrade will be available and cannot say for sure that another upgrade is in progress.

    • A lot of talk about a lot of nothing...until it is actually something! 🤔😏  As long as Thibs is here I believe that Jimmy has  chance to stay.  If Jimmy were to leave I would be surprised if he stayed in the west but if he did matching him up with LAbron would be a tough duo to build around.
    • A lot of good looking recipes on Old Bay's s i t e : Old Bay Recipes
    • I too am going to try that, done it with burger before.  I think with shrimp I'd maybe pre-cook the taters some, half way??  then cut foil cause shrimp cook super fast!!  thanks for the idea!!   and old bay is a must on that!!!
    • Thanks big d, I wanna give it a shot as well!!
    • The recipe I sort of followed said to cook it for 15-17 minutes at 350 but it took about 25-30 minutes to get the potatoes done even though I sliced them thin.   It's worth a try. We do a shrimp boil sometimes when we go camping with a group. I do it in the turkey pot and follow the recipe from Old Bay seasoning w-e-b-s-i-t-e except I like to add some chicken as well. It is very good and everyone loves it. 
    • How long and what temp did you cook this? Looks really good I want to give it a try now.
    • Chops, brats, asparagus, onions and mushrooms in the foil and a little Malbec
    • Shrimp boil in foil packets on the pellet grill. Potatoes, corn, Andouille sausage, shrimp, lemon slices, butter and Cajun seasoning. I usually use some Old Bay in my shrimp boil but I was out and didn't know it until I started putting it all together.      
    • Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!
