Product Description
lowrance This Lowrance Mark-5x DSI Fishfinder incorporates innovative DownScan Imaging Sonar technology into an affordable stand-alone fishfinder. Exclusive DownScan Imaging on the Lowrance Mark-5x DSI fishfinder displays photo-like views under the boat, making it easier than ever to choose the best place to drop a line. DownScan Imaging exposes thermoclines, clearly distinguishes between large predators and schools of baitfish, reveals bottoms as hard or soft, and allows you to easily recognize structures like ledges, vegetation, and wrecks that were once muddled below the water. 455/800 kHz Skimmer DSI imaging transducer has 4,000W peak-to-peak/500W RMS power, down-looking crystal, internal temperature sensor, a maximum depth of 200', and impressive bottom readings at boat speeds up to 40 mph (optimum images appear at speeds under 8 mph). The Mark-5x DSI fishfinder includes adjustable backlit screen and keypad, TrackBack for accessing multiple pages of sonar history, and simplified easy-to-use menus. Also features bright-white 5" 480 x 480 pixel Film SuperTwist LED display with 16-level grayscale for maximum visibility and contrast.

          Comments about Lowrance Mark-5x DSI Fishfinder:

          I dont understand the comments about it not marking fish. Ive taken my portable unit on several fly in trips and it performs great. Detail is very good and fish clearly show up as white roundish objects.Great longetivity on batteries too.
          Read the manual and on line comments about setup and all will be fine.

              Comments about Lowrance Mark-5x DSI Fishfinder:

              This unit is VERY good at depth measurements even when moving. Screen is a very nice size and shows images well. Installed it on a 1988 Bayliner Capri with a 85hp outboard. Shows pics of the bottom and items in the water very well. Not so good images of the fish that we are all trying to find and catch. Fish show up as small dots on the screen, even at shallow depth settings. It changes the screen for the depths quickly and accurately, very good at that. But I wanted a "fishfinder" first and foremost. So, it was not exactly what I was looking for. If it showed larger images ot the fish like the other finders, it would have been EXACTLY what I was looking for. I liked the bottom images, very accurate and dependable at that. If you want to find fish, do NOT get this one. If you want to see the depth readings, bottom features and other objects in the water, then this is for you. I know I repeated myself a couple of times, but I DID want a FISHFINDER. Will be buying a different one that finds FISH...!!! The electronics are good, and would recommend this Mark 5x DSI "Depth and Bottom Feature Finder" (not Fishfinder as they call it), but only for the reasons stated.

                Have had this unit for several weeks now and used it for a half a dozen fishing trips. I have adjusted the screen over and over and cant get it to look like the clarity on the advertisements. Shows weeds ok, but I'm still yet to mark a fish with it. Wish I would of spent a little more money and got a sonar with color display.

                    Thank you for your question.
                    Yes--the Mark-5X DSI fish finder does come with a transom mount transducer in the box.
