Product Description

The Elite CHIRP Series includes all of the proven features of the Elite HDI Series with the addition of CHIRP Sonar technology—providing greater sensitivity, improved target resolution, and superior noise rejection for clearer, easy-to-use baitfish and gamefish targets.

Elite-5 CHIRP Fishfinder/Chartplotter is a 5" diagonal combo that harnesses CHIRP Sonar with DownScan Imaging™. CHIRP sonar makes it easier to identify and distinguish bait and gamefish targets, provides better target identification at greater depths, and allows you to mark fish clearly at faster boat speeds—and comes pre-packaged with Navionics® Gold cartography featuring U.S./Canada/Alaska and Bahamas coastal, Great Lakes and major Canadian lakes detail.

Highly accurate built-in GPS antenna plus detailed US map: Featuring more than 3,000 lakes and rivers, Lowrance technology allows you to create your own map from real sonar data that you record with Insight Genesis™ (200kHz recommended for sonar recording). Optional chart upgrades include Lake Insight™ and Nautic Insight™ PRO, as well as HD, Navionics® Gold and Jeppessen C-Map Max-N.

Combined CHIRP sonar with DownScan Imaging Technology: DownScan Imaging™ provides picture-like images of fish-holding structure beneath your boat. Display CHIRP Sonar and DownScan Imaging in split-screen view, or combine them in full-screen mode using DownScan Overlay™.

Advanced fishfinding plus ease of use: TrackBack™ to rewind recorded sonar history including structure, transitions or fish targets, then pinpoint locations with a waypoint (on chartplotter models). Page Selector menu provides quick access to all features using one-thumb operation, and multi-window display lets you quickly choose from pre-set page layouts—including a three-panel view with chart, CHIRP sonar options and DownScan Imaging.

How Multiple CHIRP sonar settings provide clarity

Multiple CHIRP ranges from a single transducer: Because Lowrance fishfinders give you the option of using more than one CHIRP Sonar signal, it’s important to understand which one is right for your fishing situation.

High CHIRP frequency selection: Most frequently used for freshwater as well as more shallow coastal areas. It provides the greatest detail for tracking smaller objects, like your lure, or identifying game fish from bait fish, as well as game fish that are near structure or on the bottom.

Medium CHIRP frequency selection: Wide coverage makes this frequency best for covering large areas while searching for structure or fish. However, this option is not as detailed as High CHIRP and will not penetrate as deep as Low CHIRP.

Low CHIRP frequency selection: Provides the greatest depth performance, while marking fish targets throughout the entire water column.

Have installed several and use them almost every day. Gripes: have had two transducers go out with 3 years of use. When installing the cables the locking collars can not be removed , thus a one inch hole must be cut to allow the collar to pass through most consoles.

Not sure this was a good idea

By Jimmy433

from Orange County, CA, United States

Comments about Lowrance Elite-5 CHIRP Fishfinder/Chartplotter with Navionics Gold—No Transducer:

I've had this thing for months and I'm still having a hard time. It hasn't improved my fishing at all yet. I did buy extension cables so I can remove it from the dash board to a more comfortable area of the boat for learning and viewing.
