Serving up powerful, simplified performance, the Lowrance Mark-5x Pro Fishfinder delivers legendary Lowrance features with a newly optimized Automatic Mode for high-performance fishfinding with turn-on-and-fish ease. An Advance User Mode also allows for fine-tuning to current water conditions and easy-to-use Menus make accessing all features simpler and faster.
A high-resolution 5" display with 480x480 Pixel Resolution and 16-level Gray Scale SuperTwist Monochrome provides maximum visibility, target detail and separation - even in direct sunlight. The adjustable, bright-white LED screen and keypad backlight also helps you make further adjustments for day or night viewing.
The Lowrance Mark-5x Pro Fishfinder's 300W RMS Sounder (2400W Peak-to-Peak) reaches depths of up to 1,000-feet, and its Dual-Frequency 83/200 kHz Skimmer Transom-Mount Transducer provides up to 120-degrees of wider sonar coverage, so you can cover more area in a single pass and targets also remain in the scanning area longer for more detailed readings. The Skimmer transducer also features an internal temperature sensor, and a new unique TrackBack feature allows you to immediately scroll-back and review multiple pages of fishfinder history.
Sealed and waterproof, its suitable for fresh or saltwater use. A new case/mounting design allows for easy one-hand tilt/swivel view adjustment and also makes installation easier - also fits the same cut-out for previous 5" models for in-dash installations.

Comments: I read all the comments at other websites some mixed but still purchased the product. It was and easy install (my second finder install). Followed the directions in the manual ( a must for proper operation ), transducer install, seclecting the correct depth if not on automatic otherwise it can not find the bottom. The fish finder on automatic operation is easy. The split screen with two cone angle sizes is great. You can see whats under you and to the sides depending on depth. Found it easy to read even in direct sunlight (you might have to shade it if it's direct however I did with my other finder also). No problem reading the bottom at top speed ( 25 mph ), my other finder wouldn't do that. You can see your jig under the boat and put it exactly in the zone you see fish in. Haven't got to use all the features yet, but put nine fish in the boat yesterday for my first time using the finder. Cant wait to figure out all of the options. Oh also, the temp is built into the transducer another great feature, I had thought it was a separate transducer purchase. Hit the wrong button once and the screen got quite cluttered, just restored defaults and was back in action in seconds. Great product for the money.

Comments: Read all the reviews at other websites some of them mixed, however, I found the install quite easy (my second fish finder install). Found the Mark 5X Pro quite easy to read even in direct sunlight (you might have to step in front of it to shade it if the sun is shining directly on it, but had to do that with my other finder). Found the set up menu easy
