The best kind of budget devices are the ones that make you forget that money was ever an issue because the value of that device seems so ridiculously high. For a fishfinder, this broadly means a device which fulfills all of your fish spying and tracking needs; it can more narrowly mean you have purchased a Lowrance Elite-4x, which contains much of the power and elegance of more expensive models while being simplistic enough to warrant a low comparative price.
Lowrance did not forget aesthetic preferences in creating this model. You can select your color palette of choice for the display, or alter it to suit the current water and weather conditions. You can also admire the sleek and streamlined interface – while simultaneously being grateful it is so easy to navigate. If you find it is a little bit too easy and crave modifications, you can opt for a more advanced mode instead. You can do this literally single-handedly, as the Elite-4x DSI was optimized for one-handed use, a crucial feature for the on the go fisherman. It comes ready to install with its quick-release bracket.
Once you get over how nice this model from the Lowrance Elite line-up is, then you can start to make the most of its other features, which include the special Trackback Feature (which holds 4 pages of sonar recordings for you to utilize as you’d like). The Elite-4x has a dual frequency transducer (83/200 kHz) and a water sensor so you do not stray from target areas. It’s 300W RMS Sounder pulls up information from as deep as 1000 feet underwater. Its compact size also means it can go where you go, to help you achieve the best possible fishing experience. And remember, when you are utilizing all the important features of the Lowrance Elite-4x, you will likely forget that it is actually a budget device, a dedicated fishfinder designed to save you money without compromising your needs.
