Hi Folks,

had a Lowrance X-50DS that recently died, and looking to replace it...

Bought a Lowrance Elite 4x, but haven't installed it yet, as I'm torn between upgrading it to an Elite 4, or Elite 4DSI ...

most of my fishing is in salt water, so unsure which is my truly best fit...

I bought a mark-4 and am enjoying it. I don't think you can go wrong with any of them. I'm sure the elite-4 uses a bit more battery than the 4x due to having gps but if that's not a concern it is nice to mark good structure and have it all on the same device. I wasn't interested in the DSI feature much but it does look kinda cool if you're willing to play with it and become accustomed.

I use the Elite 4x and I love the the crispness and accuracy. You noted you fish ocean so I would get the elite 4 with gps(unless you have a separate gps). I Was told DSI looks better if shot throuhpgh a scupper. jMHO. All of these units look great :D. Good luck
