Re: Does anyone know???????
So I talked to Lowrance before I headed off to the lake this morning, and they told me that my SD card was the wrong brand. They recommended me using a Sandisk card rather than the Kingston card I already own. That seemed fishy to me, as SD cards are passive storage devices, and are built and formatted the same way regardless of what name the sticker has on them. Most of them come off the same line in the same plant in China. Any how, I went out and got a brand new Sandisk card, and guess what? My GD unit won't read it. So the next peice of advice was to do a hard reset, which kills my waypoints, and I can't save them anywhere because the MFing thing won't recognize when a SD card is installed. So I went ahead and did the hard reset.....goodby waypoints. Guess what....the SOB won't read my card still. So now I can hope they will issue a RMA for it and take it in for however long they feel like sitting on it for the low, low fee of $199 plus shipping, or I can just keep the gay base map that is built in, and sit on the $150 map chip that I bought since they can't be returned once opened.
