Affordable Elite electronics

Lowrance’s Elite series of colour fishfinders and GPS chartplotters are set to offer a new standard of feature-rich, high-performance, easy-to-use electronics at an affordable price.

Comprising three models – Elite-5x fishfinder, Elite-5m GPS chartplotter and Elite-5 combo – the Elite series has been designed with a 12.7cm (5”), 480×480-pixel SolarMAX 256-colour display with excellent brightness for easy viewing of chart detail and sonar graphs – even in the brightest sunlight conditions and from wide viewing angles.

Offering greater coverage for a variety of fishing and boating conditions, the Elite series of dual-frequency fishfinders provides the Lowrance standard for brilliant clarity, performance and target separation, while the chartplotters provide out-of-the-box, plug-and-play navigational functionality.

The Elite-5x and Elite-5 fishfinder models utilise a transom-mount 83/200 KHz Skimmer transducer that provides up to 120° of fishfinding coverage, as well as accurate temperature readings. Both sonar units can reach depths of over 300m with 500 watts RMS power/4000 watts of peak-to-peak power. 

For ease of installation, the Elite-5 and Elite-5m chartplotter models feature a built-in 16-channel GPS+WAAS precision antenna, along with an external antenna option. Both units also house a waterproof micro SD memory card slot and come with Navionics Gold charting.

Other features of the Elite series include a new mounting design with an easy-to-install, quick-release, tilt-and-swivel bracket that offers convenient removal for storage and remounting.

RRP starts from $699 for the Elite-5x and rounds out at $1099 for the Elite-5 combo unit.
