It sounds like you have had key pad shorting issues.

Are these warranty raplacements from the UK distributor (Silva)?

The unit that has just gone wrong was a replacement unit. I assume my dealer got it from Lowrance. Are Silva the distributor?

For what it is worth, I have had a 332C for the last two seasons and it has behaved faultlessly. Just hope that it carries on that way

Thanks for that I'll give it a go - I applied the available updates when I got it (to the GPS and the Plotter, but that was back in Feb) I hadn't realised that there were new updates for the GPS.

You need to update the software in you LGC2000 GPS antenna. This is available free via the Lowrance website although you will need an MMC/SD card reader.

The update which was released in September gives you better radar protection and 'enhanced NMEA2000 support'.

That's your issue ,the antenna which is a NMEA2000 device keeps dropping off the network and needs to be re-booted. This only happens when you add another NMEA2K device as you have with the EP-10.

This will fix it.

I would be pleased to help further if required.

My old Lowrance GlobalMap developed a "fogging" over time. The Canadian service depot explained that it was caused by exposure to acid rain! It took about 3 years to get to the point of rendering the screen unreadable. Each time, Lowrance replaced the unit under their extended warranty.

I don't know if this is the same or not... do you have acid rain over there?

Lowrance tells me that they have changed the formulation of their lens material and it shouldn't be a problem in the future. I hope that this is true as I have replaced the old unit with a LCX-25C.

Pump it up and RIDE!
