LOWRANCE has announced the newest addition to its Elite family of fishfinder/chartplotter products, the Elite-7 Hybrid Dual Imaging (HDI) series.
Available as a fishfinder/chartplotter combo model — as well as a standalone fishfinder or chartplotter — the Elite-7 features a 7-inch, widescreen colour LED-backlit display that is 70-percent larger than comparably priced 5-inch products.
Lowrance says the new addition allows anglers to see more sonar history, larger chart images and more detail in split-screen mode; all Elite-7 models with fishfinder capability also feature Hybrid Dual Imaging (HDI), which combines two award-winning technologies — Broadband Sounder and Downscan Imaging — to provide the best possible view of the water column.
Built-in to the new Lowrance HDI Skimmer transducer design, Broadband Sounder technology is ideal for marking fish arches and tracking lure action, while Downscan Imaging provides easy-to-understand, picture-like views of structure and bottom detail. With the exclusive Lowrance Downscan overlay feature, boaters can layer the Downscan Imaging view over the Broadband Sounder recording for a stunning display that separates and clearly exposes fish targets from surrounding structure. In addition, the overlay transparency is easily and fully adjustable.
To maximise fishing time on the water, signature Lowrance Advanced Signal Processing (ASP) reduces the need to manually adjust settings to see fish, structure and bottom detail more clearly; and TrackBack allows anglers to scroll back in recorded sonar history to review structure or fish targets. When used on an Elite-7 model with chartplotter capabilities, you can also TrackBack and pinpoint locations with a waypoint — eliminating the need to circle back and retrace the path.
