    Comments about Lowrance Elite-5m HD Gold Chartplotter:

    I bought this unit for my fly bridge and as a back up to my Lowrance Elite-7 I installed at my cabin steering station.
    For the price it does everything I wanted. Navigation and as a separate unit for back up. It is completely independent of all my other electronics.
    It has a bright screen for outdoors daylight navigation. I don't use the transducer as it was for a small boat but I'm sure it would work fine.
    Simple operation, non-touch screen (which I think is a plus), independent, great price, plug n play, easy install, what more do you want?
