Product Description
lowrance The Lowrance Elite-5x DSI Fishfinder incorporates innovative DownScan Imaging Sonar technology into an affordable stand-alone fishfinder. Exclusive DownScan Imaging on the Lowrance Elite-5x DSI fishfinder displays photo-like views under the boat, making it easier than ever to choose the best place to drop a line. DownScan Imaging also exposes thermoclines, clearly distinguishes between large predators and schools of baitfish, reveals bottoms as hard or soft, and allows you to easily recognize structures like ledges, vegetation, and wrecks that were once muddled below the water. 455/800 kHz Skimmer DSI imaging transducer has 4,000W peak-to-peak/500W RMS power, down-looking crystal, internal temperature sensor, a maximum depth of 200', and impressive bottom readings at boat speeds up to 40 mph (optimum images appear at speeds under 8 mph). The Elite-5x DSI fishfinder includes adjustable backlit screen and keypad, TrackBack for accessing multiple pages of sonar history, and simplified easy-to-use menus. Also features 5" 480 x 480 pixel SolarMAX 256-color TFT display with superior brightness, contrast, resolution, and viewing detail.

      This unit does everything it says. If set up properly, will definitely improve your fishing. I also ordered an instructional DVD for Lowrance that gave me great insight of the unit.

        I dont no why people have so much trouble with this fishfinder. The only adjustment i made was change the sensitivty of the surfice.

          this unit has very good graphic's. Easy to read with a quick glance even in sunny conditions. The only draw back is that the fish symbols are very small. I have only used it once but overall I like the unit.

            Comments about Lowrance Elite-5x DSI Fishfinder:

            If your mounting this unit more than 12 feet from the transducer, you need to purchase the extension cord for the transducer. My transom mount to my bridge on a 32 foot yacht is more then 12 feet, otherwise, great unit.
