LX-3tc Ice System

Our flagship sonar flasher the LX-3 is now new and improved. This three-color sonar flasher has a patent pending TrueColor display. TrueColor is the latest from MarCum Technologies improving color separation and resulting in an ultra crisp and highly visible display (even in bright sunlight). The LX-3tc is manufactured in the USA and boasts 1,500 watts of peak to peak power. Featuring a patented adjustable Zoom Mode that allows the user to choose between a 5 or 10 foot Zoom window in the 20 & 40 ft scale or choose between a 10 or 20 foot Zoom window in the 80 scale & a 20 or 40 Zoom window in the 160 foot scale. The Zoom window can be moved anywhere between the surface and bottom. This allows the user to effectively utilize the flexible Zoom Mode to display suspended fish as well as separating those difficult to see bottom huggers. Target separation improves from 2.15 to 1 inch in the Zoom Mode. The unit has a patented new and improved twelve level “Interference Rejection” feature that allows the user to knock out interference from other nearby sonar units. The “Ice System” includes an embroidered padded soft pack carrying case, 12 volt – 7 amp battery, fully automatic three stage digital charging system with battery monitor, electronics shuttle with adjustable transducer arm, self aligning 20 degree transducer, power cable, gimbal bracket and LX-3tc powerhead.

The LX3 is the old version of the LX3tc. The old LX3 has only 6 levels of IR. It has 3 color display, but uses 2 lights to form the third color so is not as clear.

The LX3tc replaced the LX3. It increased the IR levels to 12, and now has 3 dedicated lights to provide your 3 colors making the display clearer to read (hence the term true color or "tc")

Note that many owners of the old LX3 have paid Marcum to upgrade their units to the 3 light system used in the LX3tc. This is around a $50 upgrade, and may/may not continue to be an upgrade option by Marcum. Despite the upgrade, they still only have the 6 levels of IR.
