A month or so ago, I posted a rant about Lowrance telling me they would not fix my 4 year old LCX18C finder. They offered a rebate saying parts were longer available or too expensive. I was miffed, but sent it in to be tested ($49.95) before plunking down another $1000-$2000 for another one. I just got it back from Lowrance today stating it had been updated with new software and a new diode, but did not say what the diode was for. I still suspect they knew of a problem, but they fixed it anyway. For now, they still have my loyalty and wil let you know if it works like new again. If it lasts just one more season, I can live with that :cry:

I guess for you current Lowrance owners, sent it in to be tested and repaired. You might be surprised like me.

Glad they took care of you! They have always treated me well, and they have made my fishing a lot more fun and successful over the many years. Could you imagine fishing with no sonar or gps?

Interesting I have the LCX19C. Mine is broken also only 1/2 of screen will light up. Maybe I will send mine in to be "Tested", but Lorance told me they don't make parts for my anymore. Those units are not cheap $1500.00 or so. I guess its worth the $50.00 to see if they will fix it. Thanks for the update it gives me a little bit of hope, as I have been looking for a new unit, but i am not ready to shell out another 1500.00. I have been looking a much cheaper units.
