The Elite 7ti has si.....

How do I like it? Any si unit is better than no si unit but my preference is HB....

If Low would change the way their settings pages are set up they would be decent units but as they are now they are not operator friendly.....IMHO.... :mrgreen:

I have the 9Ti. it takes some time to fine tune it to get it where you need it but once it is tuned in, it is a great unit. It is pretty easy to operate but you do need to work with it at the start to get it where you want it.
Some folks are HB people and some are Lowrance people. Both brands are really pretty good.

I started out using lowrance back in 1970 the thing was a good unit when working

but stayed it the shop most of the time. At that time humminbird had a 3 day turn around

on any repairs . If they did not get it out in 3 day it cost nothing for the repairs . I bought

a humming bird at that time never had to send one back in except to update. I was fishing

a world tournament on lake mead and my hummingbird seemed to have trouble . when i got

in that night to weigh in station they had a hummingbird team there that went to work checking

out my unit there was nothing wrong with the humminbird unit it was in my boat wiring they

rewired my whole boat and cost me nothing. i have used humminbird units ever since and have had very

little problems in 52 years of use. they are very simple to operate and give you a great picture of the
bottom of the lake.
