Lowrance Elite 5 CHIRP Review

Lowrance Elite 5 CHIRP Fish Finder
Lawrence Elite-5 CHIRP w/ Base map and 83/200+455/800 Transducer. The Elite-5 is a 5-inch fish finder/chart plotter that combines CHIRP Sonar with Down Scan Imaging, built-in GPS antenna and detailed U.S. mapping. CHIRP sonar makes targets easier to identify and allows you to distinguish bait from game fish.

It gives better target definition at greater depths and marks fish clearly at greater boat speeds. Built-in memory allows for up to 3,000 waypoints, 100 routes/100 waypoints per route and 100 retraceable plot trails/up to 10,000 points per trail. An all-new case/mounting design provides for easy one-hand tilt/swivel view adjustment, removal and re-install.

Down Scan Imaging provides picture-like images of fish-holding structure beneath a boat. Selectable single-frequency sonar operation with award-winning Broadband Sounder performance. Detailed U.S. map featuring more than 3,000 lakes and rivers and coastal contours to 1,000 feet.

Optional chart upgrades include Lake Insight and Nautica Insight PRO and HD, Avionics Hot Maps Premium, Fishing Hotspots PRO and Jespersen C-Map Max-N. Create your own map from real sonar data that you record with Insight Genesis. Down Scan Overlay technology overlays Down Scan Imaging onto CHIRP Sonar.

Advanced Signal Processing (ASP) reduces the need to manually adjust settings to see fish, structure and bottom detail more clearly. Track Back to review recorded sonar history including structure, transitions or fish targets, then pinpoint locations with a waypoint.

New page selector menu with quick access to all features using one-thumb operation. Multi-Window Display lets you quickly choose from pre-set page layouts – including a three-panel view with chart, CHIRP sonar ranges and Down Scan Imaging.

Using a high-resolution 5-inch color screen, the new Elite 5 makes it easier than ever to see what’s going on underwater. Providing better target identification at greater depths, fish can be marked clearly at faster boat speeds, which is a major advantage of this fish finder. Multiple sonar settings can be viewed in one display, and the Downscan Imaging provides images so detailed, you will not have any problems identifying what’s below.

Elite 5 CHIRP, just like it’s HDI predecessor, provides built-in maps of over 3,000 U.S. lakes, rivers and coastal contours up to 1,000 feet. Customized maps can be made using sonar data recorded with Insight Genesis, and Downscan Overlay technology allows you to lay Downscan Imaging onto CHIRP sonar, giving the clearest and most-detailed picture yet of the surface below.
