Rated 5 out of 5 by btfisherman First time user of chart plotter/fishfinder
First of all i fish a large lake that has many artificial fish
habitats that are clearly shown on a lake contour map
with latitude/longitude coordinate's.
Upon entering the lat/long coordinate's i viewed the
screen and all habitats were shown at .6 of a mile off
to the south east.
I placed a call to Navico customer service and was informed coordinates i entered ( degrees,min,sec )
had to be converted to decimal degrees then to
Perhaps high end chart plotters software can accept any lat/long format but not the Elite 4 HDi.
Also there is no mention of this in the very vague
( for a first time user ) Operation manual.
Another Issue with the unit is when i turned off the unit using the power button.The unit would show only the Lowrance logo when i turned the unit back
on and would be locked up on the logo only.I had to disconnect the power cable to turn unit off.
Another call to customer service and i was talked thru
a procedure to unlock the unit and was informed
to "touch" the power button to bring up a menu to
power down the unit,which i was told was the correct way to turn the unit off.
Again the operations manual is vague on this issue.
The unit itself does every thing as advertised and
does it well.
Very Happy with the down scan image and i've
been able to locate the fish habitats with ease.
The down scan image is so good i can actually
count the branches on submerged Xmas tree
reefs that make up most of the artificial fish habitats.
I'm giving the review 5 stars because the Elite 4 HDi
is excellent and the vague operations manual issue
i'm overlooking because the great guys at Lowrance
customer service.My hats off to them for a excellent
job and being so good at what they do.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Thompsonj The perfect tool for the boat
Have been using the Elite DSI for the past three months. Over all a good unit, I have had several times where it lost its mind and would read the depth at one or two feet when I was in fifty plus. The speed of the boat did not make a difference.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bill1950 Great Unit but Down Scan has some interference
I have trouble with the Down Scan image. It has a lot of vertical pixels as if there may be interference or something. The regular sonar is ok if I drop down the gain to a negative number but the Down Scan does not clear up. The GPS works great and it is the main reason I purchased the unit. If anyone has a hint on the Down Scan interference I would like to know.
