Lowrance Elite-3X Color Fishfinder
August 20, 2014
Lowrance’s new Elite-3x is the most affordable color fishfinder on the market, retailing at $99. The Elite-3x includes a dual-frequency 83/200 kHz broadband sounder transducer and features an LED-backlit display with detailed 240 x 360-pixel resolution that’s easy to see in full sunlight from wide viewing angles.
Dual-frequency operation lets anglers choose between 83 kHz (up to 60 degrees of conical coverage—ideal for displaying large fish arches and searching large areas) and 200 kHz sonar (up to 20 degrees of coverage for enhanced fish-target separation and lure-tracking). The Lowrance Skimmer transducer, included with the Elite-3x, can track bottom at speeds of up to 75 mph, and it features a built-in water-temperature sensor.
Maximizing fishing time by reducing the need to manually adjust settings, Lowrance’s Advanced Signal Processing (ASP) allows anglers to see fish, structure and bottom detail more clearly. Easy to operate, the Elite-3x’s pages button allows users to quickly switch sonar frequency, and dedicated quick keys allow anglers to zoom up to 4 times the standard view and focus on key fishing areas. The power button also doubles as a backlight control to adjust for daylight or nighttime fishing situations.The unit’s Fish I.D. feature displays fish icons instead of fish arches to help identify fish targets, and includes track and alarm options. The quick-release, tilt and swivel mounting bracket makes it easy to adjust the viewing angle or disconnect the unit for storage.
