From other forums, the transducer seems to be a problem if it isn't pointing directly down when the boat is in the water.

Works on down scan but not on sonar


Hummingbird systems have the ability to turn off pages so they will not be displayed. On your main menu look for the "views" tab. Scroll down to the sonar view page and see if it shows visible or hidden by that page. If it says hidden, select visible and you should be all set.

How do i find water depth


Water depth should show automatically on your sonar page.
if it does not then either you have selected "stop sonar" under your sonar options or you have opted to turn off the depth displayou so the numbers don't show up.
if you areally viewing your GPS or split screen sonar/GPS page, sometimes the depth display is not visible on these pages unless you specifically instruct the unit to display it.

The GPS component of my Lowrance Elite-5 Gold is malfunctioning about 50% of the time.


Hey Les, Since you have replace both the unit and transducer, you have eliminated/diagnosed most of your problem.. Its in the wiring... sometime when I am in full GPS mode I get erroneous depth readings..?? Have you tried a different GPS module (the "puck")?

Lowrance HDS 5 Sonar faulty


You realise we are FIXYA, we are not Lowrance?

Is this when you are moving, or when you are stationary? If it is stationary, then the transducer or the wiring to it, or the plug into the head is faulty.

If it is only when you are moving, the transducer is not sitting at the correct angle and you are getting a disrupted water flow over it.

The other possibility is that you have the sensitivity set too high, which shows more activity on the screen. Set the head back to Defaults.

Hello- My 332c will not show speed. It worked before.The spinner wheel is not damaged.Speed just flashes 0.00 mph Thanks, Jeff


Try setting up the speed in the overlay data menu again:
1. Press MENU, arrow down to OVERLAY DATA and press ENT
2. Highlight the option for speed (WATER SPEED or GROUND SPEED) and press ENT
3. Highlight the REMOVE button and press ENT
4. Highlight (PRESS ENT TO ADD) and press ENT
5. Arrow down to SONAR DATA and press ENT
6. Arrow down to WATER SPEED and press ENT, a check will be displayed in the box
7. Press EXIT twice

If the speed is still flashing, the data is still invalid. Try resetting the unit completely:
1. Turn unit off
2. Press and hold the PAGES and POWER key until the "DO NOT RELY..." alarm appears
3. Set up the overlay data for speed again: 1. Press MENU, arrow down to OVERLAY DATA and press ENT; 2. Highlight (PRESS ENT TO ADD) and press ENT; 3. Arrow down to SONAR DATA and press ENT; 4. Arrow down to WATER SPEED and press ENT, a check will be displayed in the box; 5. Press EXIT twice

If the speed is still flashing, good chance the speed sensor is bad even though the wheel still spins. Install the latest LMS-332 updates from http://www.lowrance.com/en/Products/Marine/Full-Size-SonarGPS-Chartplotter-Combos/LMS-332C/Downloads/LMS-332C-Software-Update/ and set up the overlay data again.

If it turns out that the speed sensor is bad, just use speed from the GPS. This can be set up from the overlay data menu as GROUND SPEED.

(note: the overlay data must be set up for each page individually. So if you set up speed to be displayed on the map screen, it will not also be set up on the sonar page)
