New Lowrance software updates

New Lowrance software updates are coming for Elite Ti, HDS Gen3 and Carbon. Supposed to be available for download 10 March.

I like the idea of being able to overlay strong CHIRP returns on a Downscan image.

New Lowrance software updates

Morning all,

I'm having all sorts of trouble downloading the updates to my Elite 7Ti. After carefully reversing the boat as close as I could to the front door, I was able to connect to our wifi, but when I went to the "About" screen, and then the "Check for updates" option, the unit would search and come back with a message that "No updates were available for this unit on this network", and update the log to say last check was 7pm 31st March etc etc. Any ideas why the update can't be found?

Next, I grabbed a new 32GB memory card and bunged it in my Mac, and downloaded the update from the website, which worked fine, but obviously its a zip file of sorts, and needs to be unpacked when its saved to the memory card? I managed to unzip the main folder, and tried that in the unit, no luck. Went back and tried to unpack the rest of it, and got a fair way, and kept trying the card back in the unit, without any success.

Got to the point I was going to throw the sounder at a brick wall, so gave up and admitted defeat for the time being. Does anyone know how I might be able to get this update done? I have another laptop here, is Windows easier to unpack the files?

Any and all suggestions very gratefully received. ( If someone has a memory card with it all ready to go, would trade for beer! :)

 It talks about changing some setting on mac so you get the file as a single .upd file.

Hi zOOm,

Yes, I did, and couldn't find those options/references in the spotlight thingo. I roped Master 14yrs and Miss 11yrs to help me, and they couldn't figure it out either. Fail! Will have a crack downloading it with windows, when I buy an external card adapter, as Ive just notices this bloody laptop doesn't have the right port...sheeeesh.....
