New Stuff: Lowrance Elite Ti Fishfinder/Chartplotters
December 21, 2015
The Lowrance Elite-5 and Elite-7 Ti touchscreen fishfinder/chartplotters offer high performance at a great price. The units feature easy-to-use touchscreen interface, Bluetooth and wireless connectivity, proven Lowrance navigation technology and high-performance sonar—including CHIRP sonar, StructureScan HD and DownScan Imaging.
Both the 5” and 7” models feature a built-in GPS antenna that displays position on a detailed U.S. basemap, with more than 3,000 lakes and rivers and coastal contours to 1,000’. Optional Americas chart upgrades include Lake Insight or Nautic Insight PRO and HD, Navionics HotMaps Premium and Fishing Hotspots PRO. Global chart upgrade options include Navionics+ and Jeppesen C-MAP MAX-N.
The Elite Ti units are designed for anglers who want a complete view of the area beneath their boat. CHIRP Sonar offers improved fish-target separation and screen clarity, while StructureScan HD sonar imaging with Lowrance DownScan Imaging delivers photo-like images of fish-holding structure on both sides and directly beneath the boat.
Elite Ti models operate directly through the GoFree shop for downloads of mapping and software updates. Elite Ti also works seamlessly with the Insight Genesis map-creation service, which allows users to make custom, high-resolution contour maps from recorded sonar logs, with bottom-hardness and vegetation overlays, as well as Insight Genesis Social Map community chart sharing.
Bluetooth and wireless connectivity also provide single- or dual-control of Power-Pole installations, as well as access to the GoFree Controller App, which allows anglers to view and control the fishfinder/chartplotter display from an iPad or Android tablet.
The LED-backlit, touchscreen display provides fast, fingertip access to all navigation and fishfinding functions. For example, with the fish- and structure-marking TrackBack feature, anglers can review recorded history such as structure, transitions or fish targets, mark a waypoint on the sonar display, and easily navigate to that location using the chartplotter view.
Elite-5 Ti: $599
Elite-7 Ti: $799
