The Lowrance® Elite-7 HDI Sonar/GPS Combo, item # IK-022683, can be used in either saltwater or freshwater. However, the 50/200 is the better choice for saltwater use where there is the possibility of encountering deep water conditions. The 83/200 is better for freshwater fishing with mostly shallower water lakes and rivers.
