Published at 2016-03-18 00:00:00
Say hello to TotalScan – the newest all-in-one Transducer to provide high Resolution Sonar imaging, matching Broadband and CHIRP Sonar with StructureScan HD and DownScan Imaging. It is also one of four new Transducers that feature the new xSonic (9-pin black) connector.
To take advantage of this, Lowrance, Simrad and B&G have upgraded their existing Elite, GO and Vulcan ranges by unveiling the Lowrance Elite Ti, Simrad GO XSE and B&G Vulcan FS, with all-new improved capabilities and features.
Each comes with an impressive range of benefits, such as broadband CHIRP, built-in GPS that updates ten times a second, and built-in WiFi access to the latest charts.
What are some of the differences between them, though? We suss it all out for you here.

The new Lowrance Elite Ti fishfinder/ plotters match high-end functions and features, such as broadband CHIRP and GPS, with powerful performance.
The series sports all the features of the recent Lowrance Hook range, plus single touch screen functionality, StructureScan HD capability, and the ability to to connect to your MotorGuide Xi5 Trolling motor via SmartSteer technology.
Elite-5 Ti will be arriving April 2016, and Elite-7 Ti is out now.
