Default RE: Lowrance Global Map 5000c

You will need to download the software update for the unit from the lowrance website http://www.lowrance.com/software/Upg...50/Default.asp . The newest version is 1.5.0. This will fix the read problem.

In Lowrances defense, the Gold was just released last year. The 5000 needed the software upgrade to make it read the new Gold charts. All of the new units have the most current version. Chances are, the unit you purchased was manufactured before the Gold release, so it has the older software. No difference in units, it just needs the software to get it going.
