Good price on amazon

buchemist, Amazon

  • Summary: Amazon price very good. I had the dealer install it for $75. As far as the device itself, the depth data on the charts are not very good. I'm down in Morehead City, NC, dealing with Core Sound, Back Sound, and Bogue Sound. The depths simply put are not very accurate.

Not at all what I wanted now I am stuck

Alan W. Hoffman, Amazon
30 August 2013
  • Summary: Looks like I am not the only one who ordered and received a dead Elite 5X. Put it in the boat and it would not power up. Sent it to California per instructions. Received a new or reconditioned one because the serial number was different.

Elite 5 DSI ordered 8-6-13 was Dead on Arrival.

H Griffin, Amazon
11 August 2013
  • Summary: Ordered 8-6-13 from Amazon, via prime, unit arrived quickly and well-packaged. I have installed many depth finders over the years, owned many 15-27' fishing boats, have 2 now. This one went on a Whaler Dauntless 16', replacing an older 5" Lowrance B&W which lasted five years before total failure.

Best Purchase for our boat

  • Summary: This has been the best purchase we have ever put on our boat. The GPS navigation is absolutely amazing. Driving the boat back to the ramp at dark was amazing. this thing tracks your position and leaves a line where you have been. Following the line back to the dock was super cool.

Issues with the unit and support

Kent Olsen, Amazon
6 July 2013
  • Summary: There is both good and bad with the Elite-5 and Lowrance support -- I wouldn't pay retail for another one. I bought my first Elite-5 DSI in April 2011. I was pleased with most of the features, with my only concern being that I couldn't duplicate some of the extremely impressive graphics that were...

INSTRUCTIONS?

David, Amazon
5 July 2013
  • Summary: I am sure this a good piece of equipment, but without any step by step instructions, it is almost worthless. I wish I had a book to give me instructions that make sense.
