          Comments about Elite 5 HDI Fishfinder / Charplotter:

          Purchased the Elite 5 last week from West Marine. After installing and using it for 5 hours the screen would not go past the initial logo. In the ocean, no land to be seen, with no GPS. Good thing google maps worked better. Exchanged the unit for the same at West Marine the next day (thank you WM) and again after using it for the day the problem appeared. Called Lowrance and they provided instructions for a hard reset. You mean I have to lose all of my settings every day and do this hard reset just to get through the one day? He explained "my iphone is having a problem right now and I'm going to restart it". Don't even try to compare this to powering on and off an iphone. 1) powering an iphone on and off works and it doesn't with your unit and 2) it was the iphone that got us home. Poor excuse, poor equipment, and poor customer service.
