LCX-15

5 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

This morning I bought this unit. Do you guys like this unit?

I know some people have had trouble with the dual frequency transducer in the past. I don't fish deep water to often so did I buy the wrong transducer? Any feed back would be great.

Thanks,

Brian

The X-15 is a good unit, a few years back before the color Lowrance units came out it was probably the top of the line unit out there. It was discontinued last year and was replaced by the X-17. It is still a great performing unit.

I have had nothing but good luck with my 15. Does everything I need it to. Probably more Im sure Im not using it to its fullest potential.

Next year it will go on the bow and I will put color on the dash. What does everyone like for the color units besides the 332c? I want a screen at least as big as the one on my 15.

Steve,

Of course.. if you can spend the money, I would opt for the 111C, or the 110C... But your talking $2,000 bucks after all is said and done, unless you find a killer deal... For the type and the amount of fishing you do, one of these would be sweet!! smile.gif

But, if you are looking at something in the same size, etc as your 15, either the 25C or the 26c HD is what you would want. Either of these will meet your needs and give you what you had with your 15, plus more... Again, a bit spendy, but I think you can shed some money from the purchase as you already have a GPS antenna, and a dual transducer.... So if I am right, all you need is just the unit, everything should just hook up to your old wiring... The difference in the two, the HD just has built in maps to the unit...

Those are what I would look at for a replacement...

Oh, and for people looking for a new unit.. I see Lowrance is coming out with a new line of sonar/gps unit, that has built in antennas... LMS-334C and LMS 339C.. should be another great seller!!

Steve,

If you are going with the bigger color screen and under $1000 then the X-20c and X-25c would be your only options. The X-25c retails for a little over $1000 but you should be able to find one somewhere for less then $1000. The X-25 has more resolution and a little bigger screen 7" compared to 6" on the X-20c They both are high power units at 8000 watts so that can be a good thing for these 2 units. Other the that I think the the LMS series of units are priced well but like mentioned before you already have the gps. That would be a tough decision for me, the X-20 is borderline not enough resolution for me, I have a X-125 that retails at $300 that has better resolution then the x-20 but you do get more then twice the power with the bigger units. Good luck

      Definitely have 2 disagree with with u 2. I understand the drive n the worry but if you've fished the csn chain for 10+ years there shouldn't be a worry 2 find a campsite cause you've driven past plenty of them. Also we're in the same boat regardless of the travel distance to fine a campsite. Yes it is nice 2 have a guaranteed spot but since they went 2 paid 2 camp regulation they have taken out a number of campsites so it limits options. ALSO U R WAY WRONG ON SAYING MORE PPL R AT THE PARK NOW. I went last Saturday  (day before father's day) n we seen like 4 or 5 more boats than canoes. It's nice for ppl who don't know the csn chain but it's terrible for the economy.   Fyi. First time I went fishing on the chain I went lake trout fishing on David......... I was 6 weeks old ......... I'm 32 now..... my dad's been fishing the csn chain for 65+ years    P.s. love how there's less pressure=better fishing.

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      We will see if Sailorfly is another ask a silly question one hit wonder?

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.
