Default Lowrance LCX 38HD C

r-- it appears Lowrance does not repair units over 6 years old-- LCX is going on 8 cira 2006---It appears the major problem is the circuit board goes bad and they have NO replacement parts---
I have found a company in Ft Myers "that advertises will work on Lowrance " Big question -- Is it worth it?

Do you really want to spend the money to get a 8 year old unit repaired as compared to spending that $ on a new unit with state of the art technology?

It might be time to look into the current units now available.

You can now get a new HDS-8 for $875, if they had still repaired LCX, a main board replacement would have been more than the new HDS. The manufacturers don't repair the boards anymore, faulty boards are replaced.

HDS 8 for $ 875 sounds good to me!-- I have a HDS 7 Gen 1 as a back up unit to the LXC 38
