The Lowrance® Elite 4 DSI Sonar/GPS Combo, item # 022152, is not compatible with the Lowrance Ice Pack. You will need to develop a system where you can place your transducer below the ice level for locating fish when ice fishing.

You need to be moving at 2 to 3 Mph for the DSI to function properly. It works best between 2 and 8 Mph.

Lowrance Elite 4 DSI Sonar/GPS Combo (022152) will give a depth reading at a higher speed. Most of permanent-mount transducers are designed for high-speed operations. For the best results, the transducer should be placed where a smooth, undisturbed flow of water will pass across the face of the transducer at all boat speeds. Read your transducer's owner's manual before installing the transducer.
