If you want to make sure that you have the best marine GPS and sonar system on the market, the new Lowrance Elite-7 Ti2 is a great tool for getting ahead of the competition without breaking the bank. With HDI, 2-in-1 and 3-in-1 transducers available, you have your pick between a variety of next-generation seven-inch fish-finding sub-models within the Elite-7 line. Read on to learn about all the key features and benefits that set the Ti2 apart from other fishfinders on the market.
The Ti2 is packed with so many high-tech features that this unit almost goes beyond the confines of a mere fish finder. Here are just a few examples of the impressive benefits of equipping your boat with a Lowrance Elite-7 Ti2 model:
1. Active Imaging Technology
Active Imaging is Lowrance’s high-end sonar system that revolutionizes the process of mapping the water below your hull. This cutting-edge sonar technology delivers high-resolution images that provide you with an incredibly clear depiction of the terrain and fish that are moving below your feet. Active Imaging maintains its crystal-clear resolution even when you’re moving at high speeds.
2. Supports up to Three Transducers
Every option in the Elite-7 Ti2 line comes with at least one HDI sonar transducer. However, you also have the option of getting a two-in-one or a three-in-one Active Imaging transducer system that provides resolution so vivid you’ll think you’re peering into the water with your own eyes.
3. Create Your Own Maps with C-MAP Genesis Live
Tired of relying on the preloaded maps in your database? with C-MAP Genesis Live, you can create your own high-resolution maps of your favorite fishing spots. These maps provide contour lines every six inches, and you can save and share your maps with the tap of a button. You can view the maps you made on your Elite-7 Ti2 screen while you’re on your boat, and you can check them out on your desktop or mobile device when you get home.
4. Comprehensive Mobile Device Integration for Easy Sharing and Notifications
Your Elite-7 Ti2 serves as an all-in-one communication hub. When you sync your Lowrance fish finder with your smartphone, all your notifications will show up on your radar screen to make sure you never miss a text, call, or news update. Plus, it’s easy to share sonar maps and other data with your friends via text or social media with the tap of a button.
5. Wireless Connectivity for Simple Setup and Device Integration
Say goodbye to snaking cords. The Lowrance Elite-7 Ti2 is fully wireless, which means that it hooks up directly to your boat’s Wi-Fi network. This feature makes installation easy, and it allows you to share large amounts of data over your local network instantly.
6. Fish Reveal Feature for Easy Catching
If you’ve ever had trouble distinguishing the movements of fish from the topography of underwater terrain, you’ll love the Lowrance Elite-7 Ti2. This next-generation fish finder sonar comes with Fish Reveal, which is a complicated algorithm that automatically recognizes the shapes of fish and sharply contrasts these aquatic forms against the surrounding terrain. Never guess about the location of a fish again, and make the catch every time with Fish Reveal.
7. Responsive Display with Full Media Integration
The seven-inch touch screen on the Lowrance Elite-7 Ti2 responds to your every tap to pull up data or make maps instantly. Plus, you can access your entire music library from your Ti2 unit with SonicHub.
While the original Ti is an amazing unit, Lowrance put a lot of thought into creating the Ti2. Here are a few examples of the special features of the Elite-7 Ti2 that weren’t included in the original Ti:
- Active Imaging high-resolution side-scan and down-scan
- Wireless networking capability
- Bluetooth smartphone and tablet connectivity
- Detailed embedded regional mapping
Here are a few more of the benefits and features of the Lowrance Elite-7 Ti2:
With a C-MAP or Navionics map, you can set up auto-routing with your Elite-7 Ti2 to make getting to the ultimate fishing destination easier.
Options for Pre-Loaded Maps
The Elite-7 Ti2 is compatible with a wide variety of different pre-loaded maps. For instance, you can load practically any C-MAP or Navionics map software on your Elite-7 unit for seamless cartography action.
Integrated Internal Sounders
Since the Elite-7 Ti2 contains both CHIRP and Broadband sounders, this next-generation fish finder is compatible with practically every Lowrance transducer.
External Storage Integration
The Elite-7 Ti2 has a MicroSD slot for loading software or external storage. This slot supports cards with capacities of up to 512 GB.
Compatible with Motorguide Trolling Motors

Impressive Two-Year Warranty

The Lowrance Elite-7 Ti2 is available in four different combo packs. Here are some details on each of the combinations available:
1. Lowrance Elite-7 Ti2 No Transducer
If you already have Lowrance transducers on your vessel, this package is right for you. While this combo pack comes with a complete US inland chart, it doesn’t come with a transducer.
2. Lowrance Elite-7 Ti2 w/HDI Transducer
This package comes with a single HDI transducer. On its own, this transducer won’t produce the Active Imaging technology that has made the Ti2 such a disruptor in the fish finder industry, but it will provide crystal-clear sonar imagery that will help you land big catches with ease.
3. Lowrance Elite-7 Ti2 w/Active Imaging 2-in-1 Transducer
If you want to experience the power of Active Imaging for yourself, this combo pack is the most economical option. While it doesn’t have the incredible resolution of a three-in-one system, it provides richly-textured sonar results that you can use to map out your fishing expeditions for years to come.
4. Lowrance Elite-7 Ti2 w/Active Imaging 3-in-1
This combo is the top of the line when it comes to the Elite-7 Ti2 options on the market. With a three-transducer array, the images that this fish finder creates are amazingly vivid and easy to understand. Plus, this package comes with a full United States and Canada chart to help you expand your horizons.
Hooking up your new Lowrance Elite-7 Ti2 is easy. On the back of your unit, you’ll find a clearly-labeled red power port, and next to it, you’ll find a standard NMEA 2000 port. On the right-hand side of the back of the unit, you’ll find a universal nine-pin transducer port. Since the Elite-7 Ti2 is wireless, those three ports are all you need to hook up your new fish finder.
