Lowrance, a world-leading brand in marine electronics since 1957 — announced today the newest additions to its Elite family of fishfinder and chartplotter products, the Elite-3x and Elite-3x All Season pack. The most affordable color fishfinder ever introduced, the new Elite-3x includes a dual-frequency 83/200 kHz Broadband SounderTM transducer and features an LED-backlit display with detailed 240x360-pixel resolution that’s easy to see in full sunlight from wide viewing angles. Equipped with award-winning Lowrance Broadband Sounder technology, the Elite-3x allows anglers to quickly and easily identify fish targets, bottom contour, structure detail, bottom hardness, thermoclines and more. Offering selectable dual-frequency operation to maximize the view beneath a boat, 83 kHz sonar provides up to 60 degrees of conical coverage, which is ideal for displaying large fish arches and searching large areas, while 200 kHz sonar provides up to 20 degrees of coverage for enhanced fish-target separation and lure-tracking — ideal for vertical presentations. The Lowrance Skimmer® transducer, included with the Elite-3x, can track bottom at speeds up to 75mph, and it features a built-in water temperature sensor. Maximizing fishing time by reducing the need to manually adjust settings, Lowrance’s Advanced Signal Processing (ASP) allows anglers to see fish, structure and bottom detail more clearly
