Question about Lowrance X96 200khz Fishfinder

1 Answer

In lakes that are not clear I have trouble adjusting my x96.

I have a n x96. In lakes that are softer bottom or green, I cannot set my graph. All I get is clutter. My depth is correct but I do not trust my graph. I have played with sensitivity and grayline and nothing any better. I am sure its an adjustment but can anyone help?

This depends on how muddy or clear the water is. If muddy or there is a LOT of floating sediment in the water, most fishfinders will have trouble getting a good image through the dirty/brackish water. You might not be doing anything wrong in this case.

Sensitivity and grayline are your main adjustment settings, assuming you have your transducer located correctly at the right depth in relation to your hull and the waterline as well.

Does the clutter extend all the way from the surface to the bottom? If so, try reducing sensitivty... if clutter is moreso near the surface or top of the screen, then this is probably because the transducer is getting aerated water or distrubed water over it and causing the clutter and readings.

As a good rule, match the sensitivity setting tot he grayline setting. I.e. if you have sensitivity at 90%, put grayline at 90% also.

Hope that helps!

What are the best settings for a Lowrance Elite 5x for freshwater use only. Applicable to Sensitivity,noise rejection and water clarity settings


Noise rejection = low
surface clarity = off
in the menu, sonar options choose "bottom color tracking white background" this will make the lake bottom appear brown and r he fish bright green.
Automatic sensitivity, but you can adjust it up or down to filter out background clutter and the unit will honor your settings.

Functions don't work


The presence of the Fat arrows to the left of the Y1, Y2,etc = functions means that the Transfrm application is running. It takes over the graphing from the native OS.
You must uninstall it.
  1. Press [APPS] and scroll up to go to the bottom of the list of Applications.
  2. Highlight [ : Transfm] and press [ENTER]
  3. In the new screen with the heading "Transfm App" press the number that corresponds to uninstalling the Apps [1:Uninstall]
  4. Try to graph two simple functions Y1=X and Y2=2X.
  5. If these functions are graphed correctly you are back in business, if not turn Stats Plots off.
To turn Stat plots Off
Press [2nd][Y=] (Stat Plot)
Press [4:PlotsOff]
Press [ENTER]

If all else fails, Reset the Ram
Press [2nd][+] (MEM)
Press [7:Reset]
Press [1:All Ram]
Press [2:Reset]
Press [ENTER]
Press [CLEAR] to erase the "Ram Cleared" Message.

Lowrance x96 does not function after 20 feet depth


Your transducer needs to be adjusted so the return signal can be picked up. Some of these have to be super tuned to receive the signal. Also the transducer may be moving ever so slightly when the boat is traveling at speed. You may have some water turbulence interference all contibute to signal return.

Not reading properly


You might try adjusting the Grayline setting. It's purpose it to distinguish between hard & soft bottoms. Press MENU, select GRAYLINE, the scale appears like when adjusting sensitivity you can adjust up or down with arrow keys. Get over a non reading soft bottom then adjust. The change is reflected on the screen as you adjust it.
