OK, ref. my other thread, I thought this deserved a new title.
So, I buy the Gold charts, which of course come on an SD with Navonics logos all over it.
It was late. The kids had been playing up all evening, brain was toast, and at midnight or so I finally crept out to the garage, and put the card In the Lowrance in the hope it might work. (520C - yeah, the one that will read 2G SD cards.....
Well, a couple of mins of thinking later, the Lowrance powers itself down. No error messages about not being able to read the card or having no charts or any of what I thought it might do, just simply powered down.
So I thought I'll try this In the PC and see what the story (i.e how big) this is. "disc unformatted - do you want to format drive J?" Noooooooooo! (removes card!)
Now, I know on older PCs you could kill flash drives by not "cleanly" removing them. Does anyone know if a Lowrance 520C would have the same effect if It tried to access a >2G card, which I assume it was trying to do, but couldn't?
And if so, any Lowrance dealers out there know if this is covered by anything and can I grovel nicely and get the thing re- flashed onto a 2G card (or two)?
Right now I don't have a good feeling about this.....
