Advanced Hybrid Dual Imaging Technology Built Into a Single HDI Transducer
The Lowrance Elite-5 HDI is an affordable, feature packed sounder GPS combo that provides the user with an exceptional navigational and sonar experience. The Lowrance Elite-5 HDI features a vivid 5” color display for easy viewing in all types of conditions and a highly accurate GPS receiver so you always know where you are and where you are heading. Lowrance’s new sonar technology, HDI (Hybrid Dual Imaging), takes Broadband technology found in traditional sonar units and combines it with DownScan imaging to provide you with a very detailed picture of bottom structure, fish and bait. All packed into one transom mount transducer with two frequency configurations, the 455/800kHz frequency produces DownScan Imaging up to 300’ while the 83/200kHz digital sonar provides depths up to 1,000ft.
Offering a built-in basemap, the Elite 5 offers more than 3,000 lakes, rivers and coastal contours up to 1,000 feet. With Lowrance's new Insight Genesis feature you can even upload recorded sonar logs to Lowrance’s online map creation service to make your own high resolution custom maps. Additional chart upgrades may be added with a micro SD card including Lake Insight, Nautic Insight, HD and PRO cartography, Navionics Gold, HotMaps Premium, Fishing Hotspots PRO and Jeppesen C-Map Max N-Wide charts. With Sonar TracBack you will save time and money. This valuable feature allows you to scroll back through the sonar log to view past data, easily locate a rock or structure you missed, and save it as a waypoint so you don’t have to circle back or retrace your path.
Optional C-Map Max-N
MAX-N Wide provides C-MAP features such as anchorages, harbor and approach chart detail, depth contours, aids to navigation, restricted areas, rocks, spots soundings, wrecks and other obstructions, detailed marina charts and coverage of inland rivers and lakes.

Featuring a Multi-Window Display allows you to choose from as many as eight preset page layouts, including up to three panels in split-screen mode to simultaneously view chart, Broadband Sounder and DownScan Imaging, all on one screen. Using the all-new Page Selector, you can quickly and easily access all these great features with one-thumb operation. In addition, the Advanced Signal Processing feature greatly reduces the need to manually adjust settings, allowing you to automatically view fish, bottom structure and detail.
The Elite-5 HDI series units are NMEA 0183 compatible which means they can easily interface with other NMEA 0183 electronics and share numerical data. When connected to another Elite 5, Elite 7 or HDS unit via NMEA 0183 you can share waypoints between them. Internal memory allows you to save up to 3,000 waypoints and 100 routes with 100 points per route and 100 plot trails. For the ultimate sonar & chartplotter combination, the Elite-5 HDI will suite any fisherman’s needs.
