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-7 CHIRP Fishfinder/Chartplotter is a 7" 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 Nav+ cartography.

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.

I bought the unit more than a year ago and have been using it about weekly since in freshwater in 6-150ft. The deep water performance, is related to the type of emitter you have installed. I find the unit fast and easy to use after you took about an hour to familiarize yourself with it's functions. Take this time! There are so many functions that you'll might miss otherwise. Super crisp display, fast response, superb resolution for fish. I don't use the Downscan as often as I expected, but it's great to identify weed or other underwater structure. GPS is spot-on and fast, nothing to complain there. I did two updates on the unit without any problems. I recommend people familiarize with the update process before attempting it. A factory reset after the update is strongly recommended.

The Navionics charts load extremely slow. Anytime you zoom in or out it the screen goes blank for 30 secs and then the chart will load. It gets even worse if you have sonar and map at the same time. It seems the CPU in the device is underpowered and cannot process the data fast enough. The device also takes a long time to boot. Sometimes it gets stuck with the chart not loading and rebooting helps, but the reboot process is several minutes. Again, a sign that the CPU is underpowered. This unit is much slower than my old LCX-20C that it replaced. So I'm not impressed with the "upgrade".

      Do not upgrade if your unit is working OK

      By DaveR

      from Cardiff, United Kingdom

      Comments about Lowrance Elite-7 CHIRP Fishfinder/Chartplotter with 83/200 + 455/800kHz Transducer, Nav+ Cartography:

      The unit worked well until I did an upgrade and then that's where the trouble started, the chart plotter became slow and even gave a blank screen until the processor caught up, the directing set to heading up did not correct until well after I had altered course to the point that I had nearly gone off screen. Don't use it with high chrip as the plotter will go blank although the chirp seems to do what they claim you just wont know where you are until the unit catches up!!!!!! Navico are trying to resolve it but that's all I am being told and having spokebn to staff at the boat show all they want to do if fob you off and get you off the stand . One piece of advice if its working DONT UPGRADE IT.
