Finally got a chance to get the Elite 5x DSi wet today. I was gettijng alot of this:
I attribute that to disturbed water..it was just nasty out (20+ mph winds) and a low tide. I didn't really have much to "see"..I could only go in calm waters due to 3-5 footers in our harbor! When I could, this is a good comparison between my Garmin 6208/GSD22/B60-20 degree:
And here is the elite for generally the same area:
I think the Lowrance shows a more "refined" picture than the Garmin combo, but often, I was getting bottom readouts like this, that I don't think really are like this (the Garmin shows a much less "jagged" picture:
I'll go again next week if its nicer and hopefully get some structure. I'll also take my camera, as my phone takes too long to be able to take the next pic, and with the Garmin on "ultarscroll" , the bottom goes by too fast. I played with it at "fast", but then it was slower than the lowrance.
