20 Most Recent Lowrance Elite 5 Color SonarGPS Combo Questions & Answers


Hey Robert,
the blinking is usually the result of the transducer losing contact with the water..
As far as the screen getting hot.. that is not good.. do you have this unit mounted in dash? It needs some ~cooling.. just some airflow..

You can try holding in the zoom in/out buttons (+/-) as you push and release the power button.
Hold the zoom keys until you hear a beep.
If your hard restart is successful. You should see the GPS screen with prompts for language etc.
if you cannot get the system to cooperate and all you see is the "Lowrance" screen, then you are experiencing a Castro pic system failure and the unit needs to go back to Lowrance.

Here is a link to the lowrance website to the elite 5 page where you can download a pdf file of your owners manual.

Go to your gps screen on your unit and press "menu" twice. Under the Chart heading you will find "waypoints, routes and trails" select this option and when you open it you will find a tab for trails this is where you will locate the options to delete your trails so they wont clutter your screen.

"menu", "menu", "units". Select feet or metric.

This is very easy. 1 foot is equal to 0.3048 of a meter. So, simply multiply however many feet you have by this number and you should get your meters. To go from meters to feet, you would divide.

Any sonar system, regardless of frequency used (at least in kiloHertz), has limits.
If you lower it to the floor, does it ever go below 7'?
If you raise it above your head, does it then indicate something taller than you can reach?

For deep water you will want to run the lowest hertz setting. For example, if you have the option for 80hZ or 600hZ, then the 80hZ would be for deep water and the 600hZ would be for shallow water.

Reset use a soft reboot. Or hard reset make sure you back up all your settings on fish finder with chip or home computer. OK guys so the first thing you wanna do when resetting your unit whether it's soft reset or hard reset we're gonna start with a soft reset which is gonna save any GPS data anything like that so we're gonna head over hold the Power & Page button press the power button we're going to go over and press power button but I'm at the unit but up until you see the warning screen where you have to except the depth on reset Can see we still have our Saved waypoints. OK now I'm gonna show you how to do a hard reset again turn the unit off you should always use the power key never just flip the main power switch to off then press and hold the plus minus key as well as the power key let go of the power key keep holding plus minus until the warning screen comes up in a hard reset your going to delete all data on this year it's gonna be like we just bought it went to the store and bought it and cam home with know data whatsoever no settings nothing OK I warning screen has came up we can let go of her buttons and press except start demo. OK now I'm gonna show you how to do a hard reset again turn the unit off you should always use the power key never just flip the main power so that our unit is off then press and hold the plus & minus key as well as the power key don't let go with the power key holder plus minus until the warning screen comes up and a hard reset is going to delete all data on this year it's gonna be like-you just bought it went to the store and bought it and brought it home no data whatsoever no settings nothing OK or warning screen has came up we can let go over buttons and press except start demo now. OK so now you should not see any saved data so that's how you do a hard reset and a self reset. Load your Data card and shut off the power key. Then turn back on and follow screen steps. This should fix you issues.
