Unhappy Lcx-15mt

I recently acquired a boat with a LCX-15MT. It has never had a software update and has current version 2.8.0.

I was able to determine that it requires the 3.7 version, however, certificate for download site has expired.

What are my options please?

Are you saying you already tried the Lowrance download site and it wouldn't download?

Note the warning in red at the top.

Just run it the way it is. Your biggest problem will be finding a mapping chip for that unit. The LCX-15s are about 10 years old and I believe the chips are out of production. I had one back then and never did a software update on it. It should work fine assuming the gps puck still works (they were prone to failure). On ebay that unit might fetch 150 dollars, so if you wind up having to replace it maybe not a big deal?
