    GPS Trolling Motor Connected to GPS

    "when You say this worked for 15 min could you explain" So if I use the start up procedure given to me by MotorGuide and mentioned in the earlier post, it bypasses the "trolling motor update required" screen and the interface shows up on the left side of the Lowrance and it works until I use one of the GPS features. The trolling then does stupid stuff like wrapping the cord around the shaft or Anchor Lock for a minute then just automatically turn Anchor Lock off or if I use Heading Lock it pulls to one side then spins the motor in a circle. CRAZY. I Think The "Trolling Motor Update Required" Damaged either the new Control Board or the New GPS Module. MotorGuide says take it to a dealer but it is not under warranty and the dealer says they can not test the GPS feature anyway. I have now put my old GPS Module back in and disconnected the Gateway. It works pretty good but still sometimes drops Anchor Lock. Just not consistent. The only other thing that could possibility be the problem is the Gateway. I thought I was doing a good thing when it needed a lower unit and I decided to Update (replace to the newer style) the GPS Module and Control Board at the same time. MotorGuide did say the new parts is what triggered it to think it needed an Update. It is a shame. I have been The #1 MotorGuide Fan. Now I have a pretty much new trolling motor that is not going to meet my fishing needs, I MUST HAVE Anchor Lock and Heading Lock. If not I would just put my tiller steer back on. Not really, the wireless remote is awesome, but I am now spoiled, anchor and heading lock are game changers. I am going to the Rhodan as soon as I get the call its ready. I just hate for someone here to spend all that money and be disappointed because I did not share this info. As Far Lowrance goes I Love It. I have a 3 in 1 Active Imaging transducer coming to replace my Total Scan. Being told it is a major upgrade to the resolution.
  3. I’m sure this has been covered I just can’t find the answer so sorry for the repeat . We have a “new to us “ 98 redfisher with a vmax 175 everything other then some “love bites “ on her she’s a perfect boat. My only concern is no matter how I trim the motor the boat “sticks” to the water pretty much from the console back is glued to the water , my top speed is 49-51 wot at 5600 rpm. Any ideas on props that could get the bow up and better top speed ? Not sure what I have on there now but after speaking to a few guys I’m thinking a 22p might help ? And I do know about the “hook” in the boat too I’m not gonna eliminate that . I appreciate the help !

    250 Sho overheat question

    That's Great !!!!! To flush and run his motor Dino uses a plastic horse drinking water tub I believe. Think He said he got it at a feed store. I am not a fan of the flusher device that fits on the nose of the lower unit. Mine works but I have a ton of water pressure and I shorten the cord that holds it on. Still takes a minute or so to indicate its working.

    Best EPIRB?

    Have not looked into mounting it. It fits in my pocket like a cell phone, it's slightly smaller and a bit thicker. In order to set it off you must deploy the antenna which isn't going to happen in your pocket.

    1996 Maverick MA18 , 2008 Yamaha F150 (321 hrs)

    Took the Maverick to the sandbar tonight. Ran perfectly. Tailwind outbound, calm, 43mph at 4500rpm, not even a bump. Headwind on the way home, 15kts, significant wave action, wind chop+boat chop in channel....reduced speed to 26 mph, put the tabs down, turned ball cap around, rode like a magic carpet. Amazing.

    250 Sho overheat question

    Ran like a top at all rpms. Before leaving the dock I even put the jackplate all of the way up and trimmed it to where only thing under water was the low water pickups. Motor never stopped pumping and I think it’s fine. I guess I’ll just get a barrel for the shop to run it

    250 Sho overheat question

    Long shot, but it's free... I had a Yamaha outboard which would not run on the muffs. Once I put the boat in the water, it worked perfectly every time. If the boat ramp's not too big a pain, maybe you should try putting the engine/boat in the water and see if it works. Best of luck.

    Best EPIRB?

    Looking at these. Have you had any issues mounting or wearing it? Does the unit fit in a pocket or have a belt loop attachment? Does it appear that you could accidentally activate it while in your pocket or stuffed in a go bag?

    Hewes with F300!

    Wow! Hard to believe Hewes hasn't jumped all over this ingenious marketing plan. Perhaps they are having meetings about it to discuss how quickly they can send us the new boats!😂

    I KNEW someone would spot that! We had launched up the Ogeechee River near Ft McAllister and the water surface up there can get a little dirty depending on the tides. Once I put down the camera, I grabbed one of the 3 sponges that we carry and wiped it off while still wet. One thing about 23 layers of Zaino Wax, everything wipes off easily. Here she is the next day, with towing covers in place, all clean.

    250 Sho overheat question

    JH141, thanks for the post. The first couple times we did grease everything. This time I thought it was getting air so we added a thin layer of rtv to perimeter of gasket and it’s not getting air. I’m going to run it today and see if it improves from last weekend in water
