Lowrance Elite-12 Ti | Review


The Lowrance Elite-12 Ti – matches a 12″ SolarMax display and easy-to-use touchscreen controls with premium sonar features and powerful performance, at a very affordable price. The resolution runs 1280 x 800, is pretty bright, and has good viewability from all angles.

Excellent Charts & Mapping – include a built-in worldwide base map plus C-MAP charting covering 11,000 lakes and U.S coastal areas and support for additional third-party chart options like premium C-MAP and Navionics.

WiFi and BlueTooth – is built-in for optional control of Power-Pole® Shallow Water anchors, remote control, SonicHub2 marine audio, Network Analyzer, and Service Assistant integrated service tools.

Support for NMEA2000 & NMEA0183 – is also included for data sharing between NMEA2000 compatible devices and NMEA0183 legacy devices. The Elite Ti is not networkable for sharing sonar. You would have to move up to the Elite Ti2 which has sonar sharing via WiFi.

The Built-In Sonar includes a high-performance 500-watt CHIRP Sonar, DownScan, and SideScan all within one TotalScan transducer.

Lowrance also added an excellent new feature called FishReveal Smart Target View. FishReveal makes fish easy to see by combining Downscan imaging and Traditional sonar on one easy-to-use screen for excellent target separation between fish and structure.

The Elite Ti Series comes in 4 screen sizes… 5″, 7″, 9″ and 12″ and have mostly the same features and connections.

The rear connections differ somewhat on the 5″ unit and it also does not have support for SmartSteer trolling motor control.

Here is a good look at the feature differences between these four families.
