Marine maps must be installed on SD cards. The base-map does not contain marine maps. Most on-line or brick-and-mortar hunting/fishing stores carry map cards for Lowrance units.

Why don't I see fish on my lowrance elite5 hdi fish locator


Sounds like you do not have your transducer connected.
You will know it is working if you have a bottom sounding. If you have a bottom sounding (depth reading) and it is correct then you may have to fine tune the finder to see the fish.
I have the same finder on my boat. http://njsaltfish.com/index.php/captainsfocus?sid=61

Navionics maps don't seem to work on my lowrance elite 5 chirp


In your menu under CHARTS there is a choice for either LOWRANCE or NAVIONICS. Select NAVIONICS and you should be able to see your chart maps.

How do i find water depth


Water depth should show automatically on your sonar page.
if it does not then either you have selected "stop sonar" under your sonar options or you have opted to turn off the depth displayou so the numbers don't show up.
if you areally viewing your GPS or split screen sonar/GPS page, sometimes the depth display is not visible on these pages unless you specifically instruct the unit to display it.

Charting a route on water


Hi, a waypoint is used to mark a point of interest for location purposes only whether it be for fish, hazards or a boat ramp etc. it is not intended to replace common sense. Your navionics card if purchased will show land masses, shallow waters, channel markers and known hazards. Regards Phil.

Just updated to the last version 4 of firmware. Depth reading are wrong, say 48 meters when it's only 2 meters.


Check for depth offset, there may have been an unintended change that altered this setting. This setting compensates for draft....

How do you get the fish to show up on the screen on a lowrance X96 depth finder? We just got it and there is no manual with it.


Are you looking for the little fish symbols?
Press MENU, down arrow to SONAR FEATURES and press ENT. Arrow to FISH SYMBOLS and press ENT. Press EXIT twice. Any significant return in the water will now show up as a fish symbol.

Are you looking for the fish arches?
You won't get any arches unless the boat is moving and of course there are fish passing within the transducers signal. The shallower the water, the less area you are covering and less likely to get a fish return.

There is an OK guide to understanding what you see on the sonar screen at the link below. It if pretty technical but parts of it may help you out.

Color definition


Hello bidder42955. I suggest you check your controls for a brightness or contrast adjustment. An X-ray should not have an effect on the LCD display.

How do you get the gps to show depth and markers on the water?


It depends on what model you have. Most chartplotters require a chip with regional chart data. Most Lowrance models use Navionics charts. If you have a chip in the GPS, go to the map screen and press the "menu" key. Somewhere in the map setup menu will be a field where you can specify which chart to display.

For example a Navionics gold chart may cover the entire east coast, but it is broken down into a few sub regions. If you are boating in New England you would select the sub region labeled Northeast. Some of the earlier models didn't name the regions, they used model number for each region such as "XL904G". In that case your best bet is to try each one until you can view the charts in your area. Zoom in to 1/2 mile scale to make sure you can see charts.

If you have done all that and still can't see the chart details, there is also a setting in the map setup menu that allows you to set the level of detail. Make sure it is set to normal, more, or most. If you see a declutter setting on the setup menu, try setting it to off.
