Lowrance Question

Recommended Posts

I'm still pretty new at using these units so it may be just a user issue, but on several occasions when I get to the lake I'm going to fish, my HDS 8 will pop up on the last lake I visited. I can zoom out and in on the lake I'm on and view my progress, but that gets old fast. Also, it seems to bounce back to the former lake if I randomly swap through the pages for a different view. I have the most current update in the unit and have reset the unit in an area that has excellent satellite / GPS reception. I may go a month without it doing that or it may happen back to back. It happens with my dad's units as well. I'm just curious how to correct the issue. Thanks in advance.

Check to see if your cursor (or crosshairs) are up on the map page. When your cursor is on the map, the map will stay at the cursor location, no matter where you travel. To remove the cursor to show your current position on the map, make sure the map page is active (orange border around page) and hit exit. Also note that if you hit exit again, it will restore the cursor to the last location in which you had the cursor.
