Lowrance H20

Recommended Posts

Just a friendly note to all those tech savy anglers that bought a Lowrance i-finder H20, Hunt or Expedition. The screen on those things is very succeptible to scratches that make the screen unreadable after awhile.

I found a screen protector for the "Play Station Portable" (PSP) that fits with a small amount of trimming and holds in place without adhesives (and it won't blow off either). I found one at Wall Mart, but I bet they're at other stores as well.

A small investment to protect a very usefull device.

Good Luck

Jack

That's another thing I can't stand about the I-Finders, my H2O's screen has more scratches than either of my 8-10 year old Garmins.

Can you post a web address? There is a place on the net that sells them specifically for the H2O as well as many others. If its okay I'll post it.

I will concur with the Garmin's durability. Mine has been through the mill. It has fallen 16' from my deer stand onto rocks with nary a scratch. I dropped it from my ATV into the mud, took it to a nearby lake, and submerged it to wash it off all without even powering down. I recently fell on it while ice fishing and it came up still working. Accept for the 1/4" long scratch caused by the rock when it fell out of my deer stand, it is as clear today as it ever was. I don't know how the rest of the Garmin products stand up but the Rino120 certainly can take a licking.

I think they're just a soft plastic cling, like the peel-off protective film that comes on the display screen on a lot of electronics nowadays or like the Colorforms game pieces from the early 60s. (I remember my 101 Dalmatians game, can't remember the other, sure wish I kept those...) No residue left behind. I've seen these used by women for their digital camera display screens so they can throw them in their purse without a bulkier case.

I'm not using a purse on the ice shocked.gif but am wondering if it is a cling type thing if it would hold on when I slide it in the pocket of my parka. Was kind of thinking it was a cling type deal. bought a pack of two at wally world today for $8.69. Guess I will just have to cut it open and find out

they are like the stickers they put on palm pilots to protect the screen from the stylus. In my experience, they don't leave any residues. I will be using the stickers for my palm on my H20c from now on.

It looks like the H20 plastic screen has a small hole in it for replacing. Is it possible to order a new plastic screen all together?

    • Early morning bucks playing around in the back yard.
    • Nice!  Congrats to you guys!
    • Well Day 2 was a complete bust. Warm temps and high winds along with a full moon kept any daytime movement to a minimum at best. Onto the next.   Day 3 we got plenty of rest the night before and we’re ready to hit hard. We started off on the bluff where Cole had got his cow and before we could even sit down we had 3 cows at 600 yards heading at us. We lost sight around 500 and figured they would move right up the draw around 200 yards away. They didn’t follow our plan and disappeared forever. Around 10am we had some animals above us. We could hear hooves on the bluffs but never saw them. We had lunch around noon and then started still hunt ridge to ridge. Around 130pm we were on a sharp drop of when son says ELK! We immediately hit the ground as they were only 100 yards almost straight below us on steep bluff. We belly crawled to the edge and looked into the timber. We could then only see one standing looking straight away from into the wind. I slide my rifle up in front of me and placed the cross hairs behind the shoulder. My first opportunity at a Bull ever. Cole had him in the binos when I pulled the trigger. Not needed. He dropped right in his tracks. Cole tackled me and both erupted in laughter. Both of us total rookies had filled our elk tags 3 days into the season. Not sure if we are good or just plain lucky but either way it’s been an unbelievable experience.  Now we had some serious work ahead of us.  We literally had to pack him out an almost straight up vertical cliff. I have one really bad knee...all those years of jumping out of airplanes in the military have taken a toll on my knees. We each grab a rear quarter and made the first trek out. When we got back I was hurting. Cole said sit down Dad. I got this!! He then hauled out both fronts and loins in one haul. Went back down for the head and did that too. As I sat and watched him I was overcome with emotion. How did I get so lucky in raising such a grateful and helpful young man!  He got back up to me and we both broke down in tears and hugged for about 15 mins. What an experience we’ve had. The effort and hard work you go through on these hunts is like nothing else. It’s been the best we could of asked for and then some. We took the morning off while my buddy went back out. We did some scouting this afternoon and think we found a herd for tomorrow to go after with him along with trying to fill our deer tags. More to come
    • Looks great. Whats with the tray of rabbit food there? 😅
    • Gold finches are still hanging on. All juveniles though. Actually had a red winged blackbird at my feeder yesterday. 
    • So, I guess the show has a new director, and she wasn’t a big fan of how the show would drag certain things on. That’s why she hung Gregory in the first episode. Apparently she’s the reason Rick will only have 2 more episodes left. She’s not even going to drag out his demise. I like it!
    • Last batch of the season. I picked the rest of the unripe jalapenos for poppers. It sure was a great year for the garden. Just have some carrots and beets left. 
    • Oh - so that's what happens when a pike hits the camera.  Neat.  Thanks for sharing.
    • Congrats and that sure is a beaut!
