The Lowrance® Elite-4X DSI Sonar, item # IK-022153, Will support the Russian language and display metric increments when used in the western hemisphere. In Europe, Asia or Africa it will display only in English and standard increments. This is referred to as geo-fencing. The Lowrance® Elite-5X DSI Sonar, item # IK-021612 has a larger screen and more power.

Lowrance® Elite-4X DSI Sonar, item IK-022153, can be connected to a trolling motor with internal transducers. However,all you would receive would be normal sonar signals. DSI would be non-functional.

According to the manufacturer, to function properly the Lowrance Elite-4X DSI Sonar Skimmer transducer must be in the water at all times and in a location that has a smooth flow of water when the boat is moving. If the transducer is not placed in a smooth flow of water, interference caused by bubbles and turbulence may show on-screen as random lines or dots. Therefore, Lowrance recommends that you mount the transducer at least one foot away from the engine lower unit.

Question

Will the DSI still work with a boat or kayak sitting still?

I have heard that the DSI will only work while moving. I was wondering if there's any truth to that. I'm debating between this or the 4x color model for my kayak. But i really like the DSI feature.

In order to use the DSI function with the Lowrance® Elite-4X DSI Sonar you would need to be moving. DSI scans the area just below you and adds that line to the image and slides the image over as you pass over that area. When you stop the image gets a little blurry, because you are not truly stopped and continue to move slightly.

Question

I'm looking for a GPS/Fishfinder for my Sit on Top Kayak

This seems to be a great GPS/Fishfinder for the money. Can this work with a SOT kayak? In specific, can I mount the transducer inside the kayak or will I need to mount it outside? Do you sell a kayak specific model?

Thanks!

The Lowrance® Elite-4X DSI Sonar may be attached to a kayak. You would need to get an attachable bracket to attach and detach from your kayak for the transducer. The transducer would have to be mounted on the outside. Provided is a link to all the GPS/Fishfinders we carry and could be mounted on kayaks or small boats: http://www.cabelas.com/catalog/brow...
