The Lowrance® version 2.5 software update for Elite-5 Ti and Elite-7 Ti displays includes game-changing improvements to Surface Clarity and new Navionics® SonarChart™ Live and Plotter Sync functionality.
Surface Clarity Improvements
- Surface Clarity functionality has been significantly enhanced to remove surface clutter without affecting fish targets near the surface. With this update, Surface Clarity reveals fish hidden in the surface clutter rather than filtering all returns near the surface, which at times, would reduce the usefulness of the top portion of the water column. That makes a huge difference for anglers fishing shallow water, or the top half of the water column, allowing them to remove clutter caused by suspended sediment, wave action and other disturbances, without affecting fish targets. In addition, the new update gives anglers more fine-tuned control over the level of surface clutter filtration by increasing the discernibility between the levels of Surface Clarity.
Navionics® SonarChart™ Live
- SonarChart Live gives anglers the capability to create 1’ (.5m) HD bathymetric maps – in real time — on Elite-5 and Elite-7 Ti series displays. Maps are created by converting sonar returns into detailed contour maps as you navigate. Ideal for anglers fishing a new location, SonarChart Live helps raises awareness of shallow areas and reveals uncharted bottom features and areas where fish like to hide, like holes and drop offs. SonarChart Live requires a Navionics mapping card with an active chart updates subscription.
Navionics® Plotter Sync
- With Navionics Plotter Sync, anglers can easily download the latest Navionics chart data and transfer waypoints and routes between the Navionics app and a Navionics card via the wireless connectivity of Elite-5 Ti and Elite-7 Ti displays. Additionally, waypoints and routes can be imported from the Navionics card to the Elite-Ti waypoints/routes/trails database. Plotter Sync requires a subscription to the Navionics app and a Navionics mapping card with a daily updates subscription.
