  • Lowrance Hook 4 ..HELP

    Ariving at my fishing spot, I put my Lowrance Hook 4 on stand-by and proceeded
    to front of boat. I turned around and saw my co-angler punching buttons on my LH4.
    He said he was trying to see the depth. When I went back, everything was gone!
    Settings, preferances and most important.... all my waypoints and trails! The LH4
    was back to factory reset. My question, does anyone know if I can recover my
    dozens of waypoints? ..

    Not that I’m aware of....backups are essential

    Are you sure it was a factory reset? I’ve operated a bunch of different units. The reset function is usually buried deep in the menu pages and requires multiple acknowledgments before proceeding.

    Never heard of a “stand-by” function. What is it’s purpose?

      When I use my unit on my bow I put console unit in "stand-by" which turns off transducer to keep signals from interfering with each other ..I don't know what he did but somehow every thing was deleted..

          Talked to Lowrance tech. and was told that a certain sequence of buttons pushed will

          completely remove all stored data including waypoints, trails etc. and there is no way

          to recover them. Co-angler must have hit that sequence. Tech told me how I can back-up

          info with a SD chip as I will be doing from now on. (I was not aware this could be done

          with this unit)
