I did make sure to use a clean, formatted card. Not sure it matters though because the unit will recognize the update automatically. Have you ever used Hummingbird PC? Once you register, you can keep track of all you units and software changes and some other information. [link=(https://r.search.yah...

re: Trolling Motor Issues... - TheLSUriot
Obviously, check to make sure your connections are good and there is no short in the wiring. Also, test all 3 of your batteries for internal shorts. If that is all good then you may want to upgrade to a 60A that is compatible with a 36VDC system. Minn Kota makes one that can be found for around 30 b...

re: Looks like NASA checked every box for their new astronaut class - TheLSUriot
I can speak as someone who has been on both sides of the astronaut selection process. There are no defined hard numbers to meet but an expectation to include a ‘diverse’ group based on a number of soft factors in their background. While some are based on the thought of better crew cohesion and perfo...

re: Baitcaster suggestions - TheLSUriot
Revo STX is what I suggest. Better quality than many of the reels mentioned. Retail is ~$200 but can be found online for as low as $110. That is a lot of bang for the buck! You should ask him what he thinks then come here for opinions on those models. Also, rod choice is just as important a facto...
