Lowrance releases single and dual frequency greyscale fishfinders
Lowrance has released its new Mark series of single and dual-frequency greyscale fishfinders, called the Mark-5x and Mark-5x Pro.
Both fishfinders feature a 12.7cm (5in) bright-white, 480x480-pixel, SuperTwist™ LED display for easy viewing in all lighting conditions, plus 16-level greyscale definition that, according to Lowrance, delivers maximum target detail and separation.
Both units boast standard Lowrance sonar performance, and the Mark-5x Pro also offers dual-frequency operation, for greater coverage in a variety of fishing and boating conditions. The Mark-5x Pro provides up to 120° of sonar coverage and operates at 200kHz and 83kHz, and is said to reach down to depths in excess of 300m.
The Mark-5x operates at 200kHz only, for depths down to 240m, while providing up to 60° of fish and structure-finding coverage. Both models are packed with the transom-mounted Skimmer® transducer, with built-in temperature sensor, and also feature a unique TrackBack™ function that allows the user to scroll back and review multiple pages of sonar history. This helps anglers avoid missing a productive fishing area.
Lowrance said the new simplified user interface is enhanced with a backlit keypad design that allows for single-thumb control, so anglers and boaters can quickly access menu features and enter Advanced User modes for expanded feature selections.
Additional features include a new mounting design with an easy-to-install, quick-release, tilt-and-swivel bracket that offers convenient removal for storage and remounting. The Mark-5x and Mark-5x Pro are also waterproof to IPx7 standards, and come with a one-year limited warranty.
Lowrance said the Mark series hits the market in early 2010. RRP starts from $299.
