Lowrance LCX 15, any info ?

4 posts in this topic

I was looking at the new Lowrance LCX 15, it really impressed me for display detail and features. Price might be a little high, but if it follows the X series, it should be a good one. I am looking at the MT (monochrome) model I don't need color. Anybody has any info regarding it ?

Looking at the same unit for my rig. It seems like alot of money but lowrance makes a quality product and I put alot of faith in the one I currently own. If you have never owned a high quality locator this one might be a good place to start! Paul

I too am considering the mt unit,it has been the topic of many discussions on walleye cenral.com, mainly the scroll speed and the updates that lowrance has already added since its release, It has many features that I may not need, but maybe sometime I will?I'd like to see one on the water before I purchase one, not that I think its over rated but I believe in buying tools that will perform and last for years, I've been more than pleased with my LMS350a, so if its as good as they say, I'll probably own one...

The X15 seems to be a nice unit but the GPS needs some work. It doesn't have a lot of features. I have had several GPS units from Lowrance and the LMS1600 is much easier to operate here are some of the features it has. You can turn off the symbols for your waypoints you can't on the X15. Why I like that is your whole screen is not clutter up with the names and symbols. Finding a waypoint on the X15 has too many buttons to push and I can go on and on about it. I am not saying it is a bad unit it is not a user friendly as some if there other units. I hope Lowrance upgrades it in the future.

    • Glad to hear you're back up and running again.          
    • I got my boat back today and it runs great now but the mechanic said I had too many idling hours on it and it had a lot of carbon build up. I have trolled a lot with this motor . It has ran great but I did have  this recent issue with it where I had to bring it in and it runs good now. Mechanic recommended run it more often at higher rpm's.  For those that troll with their main engine,  how often do you run in a higher rpm's? I  use carbon guard  and thought that that would prevent the carbon buildup.  If I trolled for three or four hours at a higher RPM would that be too much ?          
    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
