I love mine. got it amout a month ago, got the free lakemaster chip with a rebate.

I used it next to an FL18, I had no issues, he started to have interfearance after a few hours.

I use the graph mode rather than the flasher, I feel it gives better info.

luv mine, maybe ur battery was not fully charged when u started? was out yesterday for 6 hours & only used 20% of battery

best way to use it is play with menu & settings and fine tune for your personal preferences, personal favorite of mine is making back screen black, rest of colors "jump" off screen

cant vouch for interference, usually fish alone

Love mine, the battery life if you took it out of the box and did not charge it, was not fully charged that Battery my have been in the box close to a year so always do a charge when you first get them. I can use mine for 2 days even 3 days in the summer on our Canadian fishing trip. Keep using it, you tube has some great instructions on how to better set up and use them.

They will have to pry it from my cold dead hands.

Yeah something doesn't sound right. It should last longer than that, though I wouldn't expect to get more than a full day off one battery. My dad has the ice 385ci and it'll last all day but barely. You can try turning the backlight down to save some battery life, but something seems wrong if all you can get is 5 hours.
