Wanted: 2nd hand small lowrance plotter / fishfinder

Willing to pay good for anything plug compatible with 330C - want to do a straight swap with my old faulty unit.

Thanks

Bruce

Hi Bruce.....Ive got a 332c circa 2006.
Came with the boat that I bought this year. Working fine, used last weekend.
Ive recently bought a newer unit which I was going to fit at the end of the season. Can do do it sooner if required.

Not 100% if its a directly swappable. Can send you some pics if required.

PM me if of any Use.

330 and 332 should be compatible.

Not sure exactly what the difference was (I know the diff between the 332 and 337 was the single/dual freq FF.)

The later models (i.e. LMS-520C/525C) will also be compatible, but you will need an adaptor to plug the blue network cables into the red network plugs. Later models also came with the LGC-3000 GPS antenna, which was updated and hardened (I think.)

Luck;

The LMS-332 has a larger screen 5" square rather than portrait. The case is the same size so your bracket will be fine (or cut out if flush mounted). Antenna, power cable and transducer are all common to both units so its a straight swap.

The LMS-330 was the predecessor to the 332.

Thanks, Tom. I don't recall seeing the 330 for sale here (but may have just missed it.)

Just to report. Lowrance offered me a reconditioned 330C for about 240 (no warranty). Using Ribnet I picked up a secondhand mint condition 332C ( a more avanced package with a better wider higher res screen) for 210 including postage. Plugged in fine as Tesel Tom said it would! Thank you Rooster for the deal, and thank you everyone for the good advice!
