View Full Version : HDS 10 In Rough Water

08-03-2010, 10:18 AM
Last couple of time out in the Bay pounding though the chop my HDS10 would lock up and the screen would go dim. Wouldn't shut off with the power key to reboot. Had to disconnect power. Anyway to stop this from happening? Hate to have it happen 20 miles offshore in some rough seas.

That happrnrd to me on the first one I bought. I returned it to CABELAS and got another one. I haven't had it happen since. Somrwhere on the Sniffer posts there is a Lowrance tester Guru. Search back and contact him and see what his experience has been.

Some of these kinds of issues have been addressed with the new 3.5 update now available on the Lowrance website. Go to http://www.lowrance.com/Downloads/Product-Software-Updates/HDS-3-5-software-version-and-demonstration-files/

I had similar issues with an older (non HDS) unit, and the culprit was the SD card. When it blacks out, I just remove and reinsert the card, and it comes right back.
