Lowrance has recently announced an exciting addition to its Elite fishfinder/chartplotter family, the Elite-7 Hybrid Dual Imaging (HDI) series. The Elite-7 models feature a 7-inch, widescreen color display that is 70-percent larger than comparably priced 5-inch products, allowing anglers to see more sonar history and more detail in split-screen mode. Its 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.
To maximize 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. In addition, 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, users can also TrackBack and pinpoint locations with a waypoint, eliminating the need to circle back and retrace the path. $449 to $869, depending on model lowrance.com
