Question about Lowrance ELITE 5X 5 83/200 A powerful 500W RMS fishfinder that

2 Answers

Why is the GPS location incorrect when GOG up is selected and is correct when North up selected on a Lowrance Elite 5 combo

Switching between North up and COG (course over ground)setting fixes the problem North Up the position on map is correct. When set for the more useful COG the position shifts by hundreds of metres. We are on land and no longer on the lake according to the displayed position.

How do I erase trails

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.

How do i install elite 5 dsi on 14' tiller boat


Install the battery cables to the battery for the gas motor.

Here is a transducer installation guide for Lowrance, this is pretty standard for all transducers. Pay attention to how the boat sits in the water when trolling for level setting to match in water.

The GPS component of my Lowrance Elite-5 Gold is malfunctioning about 50% of the time.


Hey Les, Since you have replace both the unit and transducer, you have eliminated/diagnosed most of your problem.. Its in the wiring... sometime when I am in full GPS mode I get erroneous depth readings..?? Have you tried a different GPS module (the "puck")?
