        My Opinion on Lowrance Elite 5 ti

        The Lowrance Elite 5 ti, with its brilliant 5″ screen, 480 x 480 pixel resolution and 256 color touch-screen display delivers high performance, precision and functionality without the high price. The improved screen brightness, contrast and resolution provide greater detail at wider viewing angles and in bright sunlight. Utilizing the same dual frequency (83/200 kHz) sonar as the X50, the Elite comes with Lowrance’s custom TrackBack feature that allows you to immediately scroll back and review previous sonar history.

        The Lowrance Elite 5 ti also comes with complete chartplotter functionality, including a 16 channel GPS antenna, a microSD memory card slot (waterproof) that is compatible with Navionics Gold chartcards and other map cards. Its memory allows for up to 3,000 waypoints, 100 routes with 100 waypoints per route and 100 re-traceable trails. For convenience, the case/mounting fits in the same cutout for previous 5″ Lowrance models, and the uniplug connectors are also compatible with previous Lowrance installations.

        Conclusion

        The Lowrance Elite 5 is a good unit for the price and features. It is good for both beginner and semi-professional usage. It also comes with a touch screen feature that you can’t find in another brand within this price range. I would recommend the unit if you want a clear display with a touch screen feature.
