Lowrance 540C questions

Well I tried to give JimmyZ my money today for a GPS.....but like the stand up guy he is he told me to spend my money elsewhere and save me some coin...a good amount to say the least......Now my question is. Has anyone ever had a problem with theirs? I was offered a 3 year warreinty with it and want to know if its necessary? It comes with 1 year warrienty. Give a Ninja some direction please.

Gps come on you dont need it. Just do it old school, Look at the sun and moon and lick your index finger go which way the wind blows.

2nd place is the first loser!!

Were a whole lot faster than you think you are.

Yep jimmy is a stand up guy.

If you want to save some coin and have the very similar GPS, then get the eagle intellimap 502c ( made by Lowrance also) a little less resolution, but the same functional features. put the whole unit on a switch, cause if you do not your batt will be dead from the antenna.


generally 100 or so bucks less then the baja 540.

I would have one if $$ permitted ( you know my dash is begging for one) lol, but I still get around with my handheld if I need to.

Rog didn't add any valuable information to this thread! lol j/k he's right

Hapa- ''When I checked into my motel, I said to the lady at the desk:

"I hope the porn channel in my room is disabled."

"No," she said, "it's just regular porn, you sick bastard."

then you hour meter runs! lol, you know better.

even when the unit is off, the antenna has power to it.
