I tried to get information from general equipment, etc. without any luck, since I fish for crappie I thought I would give this a try. If it is not supposed to be in the section, please delete....

I have a Lowrance Hook 5HDI and have two problems, the first is I don't know how to put the lake map on the screen by itself, the guy at Bass Pro set it up with split screens for about 4 different applications. The second problem is when I try to mark a waypoint a notice comes on the screen and asks if I want to save the waypoint or cancel, I don't know what key I should push to save the location, thanks for any help you might give an old man.

I hope fishbonz helps you. I have a couple of Hook2-5ís and it was a chore to figure them out. I think I have got it right by now.

I wish I could help. I will say that I had Hell trying to figure out the Lowrance as I have 2 of them, BUT now that I figured it out, I have to say that I think I like it better than that Humminbird that I have. My boat came with 2 Humminbirds that are networked, but they only have Sonar. I could probably add a transducer to make things better, but I had 2 Lowrance already from the old boat so I just put them in. I am about to take the front one out as now that I have Livescope I find that I do not use it, plus it was mounted at the bottom of my trolling motor and when a wave pushed me on a stump yesterday it broke the transducer off, so time for that one to go!

When we got our new boat, it came with two Hook2-5ís. The front one and the console one are different models. Took the boat out and neither worked. Came home and read everything I could find on the units and found that the front one should have been at the console. They were installed backwards, but the different transducers were in their proper place. So...nothing worked, each being on wrong transducers. So I swapped them to their correct transducers. The front one still didnít work. Took it to the dealer and found that the front one was defective. They replaced it. Now both work. But...I gotta tell ya, if you donít play with them enough, youíll never figure them out.

Iíll probably eventually replace them, even though they are practically new, with something better and more intuitive, though at this time I have no idea what that would be. My previous unit, on another boat, was a Lowrance Elite 7, and I did fine with it.

I know enough about fish finders that I know that I donít know enough to pick a new one and get it right.
