Lowrance Elite-4 IceMachine Review

Lowrance Elite-4 IceMachine has an average rating of 5 out of 5 based on 2 user reviews.



The Lowrance Elite-4 IceMachine allows you to keep track of the water beneath the ice with sharp, smooth clarity. Proving that big things come in small packages, the compact Elite-4 contains a crisp, bright LED backlight and a 300W RMS sounder able to reach the far depths, some 800 to 1000 ft deep via its 83/200 kHz dual-frequency transducer. The screen is easily and quickly adjustable, while also being sturdy and stable. Track targets’ movement over time with the unique TrackBack feature, which lets you review up to four pages of recorded sonar history. You can even mark waypoints (up to 3,000) and special routes.

The Elite-4 comes ready-to-go, with a basemap pre-loaded, and can be used with popular program upgrades, including those by Fishing Hotspots Pro and Navonics. These can be installed via the built-in microSD slot (which is weather-proof). Other amenities of the Elite-4 IceMachine include the accurate GPS antenna, the rod-holder slots, and several pockets, mesh pouches and tackle trays. There is also room for two StowAway utility boxes. The fishfinder requires a 12v battery and charger, both of which are included. The Elite-4 Ice Machine also comes with the Lowrance 5-year Advantage Service.

Works great as an ice flasher and sonar and in the split screen mode. It’s very easy to setup, comes with the battery, transducer and ice bag. I used to come back empty handed from my ice fishing trips before I bought it, now I always catch fish.

I’ve been using a flasher for years on the ice. This unit works just as well (if not better), and it’s easier on the eyes (when in graph mode).
More information on the screen than a flasher. It’s a much better tool. Just make sure you set your ping speed at the fastest speed to get immediate feedback.
If you want a bigger screen, get the 5x, but the 4x is great. Screen size if fine for me.
