Sounds like when you click the Mouse Roller to lock the screen scrolling. You should be able to hold the pen down a second time to turn this off.

SOURCE: Can I use my existing transducer(1000 watt tilted

As long as the connection is the same.....maybe. The difference will be the angle of beam from boat to bottom. May not cover the same area...or you could loose zoom etc. something will be different.

SOURCE: How does my Lowrance HDS-5

To connect a LRA 2400 to a Lowrance HDS-5 sounder/chartplotter, you can run an ethernet RJ45 cable from your Radar Processing box to the HDS-5 unit. You will need an adaptor cable for the RJ 45 cable to hook into the HDS-5 head unit. This is part no 000-0127-56.

As for the different transducer pinouts, I am not sure what transducer you have now so I cannot say if there is any kind of converter plug available, however, the HDS-5 units do seem to run best using the transducers that are made for them. Your best option may be to buy the transducer that is made for them, and this will directly connect to the display unit.

Hope that helps!

SOURCE: Can a HDS 5 Lowrance

Hi, well I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news but those two are NOT interchangeable sorry. The "Drive Current & Voltage" for the Transducer are not the same at all, in fact i don't even think that the "pin outs" are the same? but cannot remember off hand? Unless specifically indicated by the manufacturer, one cannot usually swap transducers among instruments, if one does/did do so, well indeed the transducer maybe damaged and or the output of the sounder maybe damaged as well?
These manufacturers actually make it so that none of their equipment is interchangeable, as they wish to maximize the profits you see, and if one could just swap things among models etc, then "They" would, in their mind anyway "loose out"
So you will simply have to cut a new hole and mount for you new transducer. make sure you mount it in the manufacturers recommended place, the Bow is fine, although I often recommend that it be central to the craft, but, sometimes this isn't possible for varying reasons.
Sometimes if one must retro-fit a new transducer to an existing but different size etc site, then, it is best to "Fill" the old mounting hole(s) with a suitable material, and then re-drill and re-mount it all again.

How do I erase trails


http://www.lowrance.com/Global/Lowrance-images/backgrounds/lowrance_hds_background.jpg

Here is a link to the lowrance website to the elite 5 page where you can download a pdf file of your owners manual.

Go to your gps screen on your unit and press "menu" twice. Under the Chart heading you will find "waypoints, routes and trails" select this option and when you open it you will find a tab for trails this is where you will locate the options to delete your trails so they wont clutter your screen.

How do I program my lowrance to locate reefs if I have the lat log reference?


You can go to your GPS page and zoom out and then using your cursor pad and move your cursor so it is in the general area of your coordinates. Start zooming in andifferent as you do the the lat, long readings on your screen will become more precise. Continue to adjust your cursor position so the coordinates match up with known position you have. Continue until the cursor position on screen and your known coordinates match.
Push "ENTER" twice. Your way point will be saved at the current position of the cursor.
OR
Push your cursor pad to bring up your crosshairs on the GPS screen. Save that waypoint, then go in and edit the coordinates to match your location data and save it. The waypoint you created will move to the new coordinates.

If I get a new Lowrance GPS, can I use my SD card from my ifinder Hunt in the new device and use all my saved points?


First use "add gps" and add the original unit and the H20

use "receive from gps" to call in the original waypoint file from your sd card

use "send to gps" to save the new waypoint file to the sd card

remember that the original gps file may contain more waypoints than the H20 can hold so you may have to delete some waypoints from the file while in EasyGPS

if this is not clear enough, let me know and I will try again. I use the program all the time.
I just realized I left something out. EASYgps does not like the Lowrance HDS File version so an extra step is required if you are transferring files from an HDS to an IFinder. Save your HDS waypoints as Version 3 to the SD card and EASYgps will accept them

HDS Gens Touch shows positive red to negative & black to positive?


Lowrance may have goofed on the manual printing. RED is Positive, Black is negative. All these systems have reverse polarity protection. If you wire backwards, the screen will flash on and then automatically turn off.
I install these systems and I have always put the fuse hlder on the positive line at the battery. The fuse holders are always red wires and that may also lead to some confusion if they suggest attaching that to the black lead.
Hope this answers your question.

Hi, a waypoint is used to mark a point of interest for location purposes only whether it be for fish, hazards or a boat ramp etc. it is not intended to replace common sense. Your navionics card if purchased will show land masses, shallow waters, channel markers and known hazards. Regards Phil.
