Lowrance Elite TI2 DownScan

Recommended Posts

I am only posting this for those interested in the Lowrance Elite TI2 unit with the 3 in 1 Active Imaging transducer.  You cannot change the DownScan frequency on this unit. I downloaded and read the owner's manual before I purchased it. In the manual, it states you can choose between 455 kHz and 800 kHz. This is not the case. The unit is locked at a certain frequency. I have been in contact with Lowrance and they have confirmed this. The truly silly part is that they won't tell you what frequency they are using. I am not asking for nuclear codes here, I am just curious about the frequency being used on the unit. I do not understand why that information can't be given out by Lowrance? Anyway, I wish I would have known this before purchasing the unit. Hopefully someone else finds this helpful.

I don't have the TI2, but I have the original TI. I can change between 455 and 800 in the sidebar menu. Does it not tell you what frequency you are in on the bottom left corner of the screen? Maybe someone from Lowrance told you wrong, especially if the manual tells you that the frequency can be changed.  I would contact Lowrance again and talk to someone else.

See, that's what I was thinking. I'll see if I can get a hold of someone else at Lowrance. To me, this whole deal is backwards. The 3 in 1 transducer is supposed to be superior to the Total Scan transducer. However here is the tech's reasoning behind the owner's manual mix up and the locked down scan frequency.

 

"I am sorry for the confusion. The manual for the ti2 was written before we introduced the 3 in 1 active imaging transducer. If you had a total scan you could most definitely change the frequency of the down scan. However there is only one option with the 3 in 1 and corporate had not publicly released that information yet, but there is only one option for the 3 in 1."

 

"There is only the one frequency that is used for down scan and we are not allowed to give out what frequency that is. I am sorry"
