Ping speed ?

Recommended Posts

Doesn't that refer to the refresh rate?  Mine doesn't have the ping speed setting. It's a Lowrance elite 4 DSI. It came with a the trolling motor transducer. im guessing it doesn't refresh fast enough to use on the rear of the boat if I get a  transom mount transducer for it???   

Happened to notice the units with chirp have ping speed.  Figures I could have bought one them at the time   

Im wanting the 5 HDI maybe a 7 for the rear if I can figure out what I'm missing before I buy the wrong unit.

any thoughts!

Ping Speed has nothing to do with the refresh rate. The refresh rate (also referred to as re-draw rate) refers only to the GPS.

Ping Speed refers to the rate of pulses put out by the transducer. Generally speaking the faster the ping speed the better the clarity. Your unit is a DownScan Imaging unit and will NOT have a ping speed setting. You will have ping speed settings with 2D sonar, CHIRP or standard.

If you get an HDI (hybrid dual imaging) unit, you will enjoy both the DownImaging and 2D sonar. With an HDI you will better understand what you are seeing on BOTH views.

Ok so I'm a bit confused.  Can you adjust the refresh rate on mine.  It has chart plotter gps  

I'm wanting it to draw the bottom faster

You can not adjust PING on your unit. Why do you think you need to adjust your PING speed? I don't think you can adjust the refresh rate either.

 

Here's something to try tho...when you set up the machine make sure to check YES at Are You an Advanced User. This will open up more options for you in the setup menus. You can reset the machine via the main menu system.
