good unit, lousy manual = don’t buy.

useless manual. also, taking notes on you tubes is a really poor way to learn this unit. one would think that if lowrance wants to make money, they would get real with their manual.

good unit

great unit.

was wondering if you can buy spare power cables which come with a cigarette light adaptor. this would then enable me to cross use this for the gps function on my side by side utv.

pros: easy to use
cons: having to google install and help instructions

recommend? yes

very good unit

the detail and imaging is excellent. being new you have to get adjusted to the menu options. i agree with the comments about user manual – virtually worthless. but the unit performance is outstanding. would definitely recommend!!

pros: imaging detail, easy to install, strong antenna
cons: user manual

like an mri of the lake bottom

great unit. gps city ships very fast. amazing resolution , especially if you are used to a traditional fish finder. i was told it had a fish alarm – not. at least i can’t find it. unit mount does not swivel around – but only up and down. the owners manual shows a fish alarm. it also refers to a “traditional view”. they are just using it for reference i guess…overall, if you have used fishfinders with gps before, you will have no problem navigating through the menus on this unit.
writings at 43 mph as well but poor when you are sitting still on the water. the views of the lake bottom will knock your socks off!

pros: spectacular resolution
cons: poor owners manual, no fish alarm

recommend? yes

noob needs more documentation

my first time using a fishfinder and i am struggling. documentation points out all the great features but near to none on how to use them. i don’t know how to look for fish, front of the boat, does the screen show real time or is it refreshing left to right. what is a fish going to look like and where in relationship is it to the boat. simple things if you know how the unit works, very difficult if you don’t.

pros: easy to set up/install-touch screen
cons: no noob quickstart for how-to

recommend? yes

great views, but no alarms

this shows outstanding imaging. the only problem is that there is no fish id or alarm. so if you are used to a regular fish finder, this unit is not for you. the description of this unit is very misleading. you basically have to be looking at the screen all the time to see if there are any fish unlike the usual finders giving you an alarm.

pros: great images of bottom, speed, water temp,and time
cons: no fish id/alarm

recommend? no

elite-5 dsi south africa

simply no comparison between the down scan images and the regular fish finding images. tress are trees logs are logs, fish are fish, gps maps are lacking mainly due to lack of support here in deepest darkest africa, takes an age to find satelites. when extremely shalow the unit does not perform well, pretty much only good for depth and temperature. generally an excellent unit that i would buy again given the coice.

pros: accurate images of whats below you.
cons: gps takes a while to find satalites

recommend? yes

lowrance elite-5 dsi is worth the price.

the electronics and display are fantastic. the unit installed in under an hour, including snaking all of the wiring through the hull.

only two criticisms. 1) the user guide is a “one size fits all” that covers several models and isn’t nearly comprehensive enough 2) the transducer is installed exactly as suggested by lowrance. but at plane, contact with the bottom is lost and the depth finder portion of the unit is useless. the boat (20′ ranger) runs in the mid 60s and the unit loses the bottom at about 30mph. methinks that ranger and lowrance need to talk more as this appears to be inherent to the hull design, not a shortcoming with the unit.

the dsi imaging is effective only at low speed. an externally mounted transducer for this feature as well as an internally (hull) mounted one for high speed depth sounding would solve this. perhaps in the next generation unit?

cons: user guide.

recommend? yes

elite 5 dsi great but still lacking

this unit works great. the only problem is with the “mount outside the hull” transducer. i mounted it but i expect that the first time i have to fish in the heavy grass that it will get broken off. basically it is too cheaply made and i am going to end up hating it. i fish in the california delta and i know the first time i have to back the boat it will get caught on the heavry grass mats and break. in the process it will tear a hole in my gel coat. i love the performance but i should have never mounted it. if the transducer had been shown in any of the advertisements for the unit, i would never have bought it.

pros: target definition is superb.

cons: transducer mounting design is terrible!

recommend? no
