I COMMAND LMF400 - Firmware and hard reset
« on: February 20, 2016, 10:31:08 PM »
Just some information I want to share:

I am in the process of updating my gauges to v 2.4 firmware for BRP Evinrude

You need a HDS Lowrance MFD in order to update the firmware

The firmware is only available to dealers so be nice to the guy behind the counter and bring and SD Card

If you are having issues with the display try a HARD RESET BUT BE WARNED THIS WILL ERASE ALL YOUR DATA!!

Hard Reset (Deletes stored data.)

1. Turn Unit Off.

2. Press and hold the DOWN button.

3. Turn unit on (activate power to NMEA network or connect unit to operating network).

4. Release DOWN button after test screen appears.

5. Turn unit off (disconnect power to NMEA 2000 network or remove unit from network).

I will update this post when I finish the firmware update. From what I understand the only difference between the Evinrude from the Lowrance version are the Engine warning function which will only work with Evinrude. There is also a Suzuki version out there too.. I may try updating a Lowrance version just to see if it works and changes it to a BRP.
