Lowrance elite ti 7

Unread post by Beeman »

This unit came with the boat, overall I like it however a couple of issues I am having are really pissing me off, I have read through the manual several times and dont see that I am missing something.

The issues.
Each screen on its own is fine, however if you go into split screen or multi screen mode you start losing functions, for example.
Sonar in full screen gives depth & water temp, switch to split screen and you lose the depth readout.
Chart screen in full screen gives you speed, which you lose as soon as you go into split mode.
As I like to run both of these screens when trolling I am losing the info that I need.
I am fed up with switching screens constantly.
Does anyone know if this is just something I am missing in the setup?
If not then is this a common issue across all models?

I have a Lowrance HDS 8, & I had to configure each split screen to have the values I desired displayed. Did you try holding your finger on one screen till it displays options of what you can view, if it has this capability.
Good luck, & let us know how you make out.

Yes you should be able to add data elements to the split screen.
I can on both the hds touch 2 and HDS Live units.

Hey Beeman, see if this info from manual helps. I have same unit but also need to fix my split screens too. I like this unit as I Link it to a larger screen IPad.

To add to my frustrations I cannot get it to link to my phone hotspot, I was able to pair with bluetooth but I keep getting a cannot connect error for the hotspot. I know its working on the phone side as I connected my laptop to it to check.
Back in the house thumbing through the manual again.

Making headway, was able to figure out overlay configuration so now have the info I wanted on display.
I was able to connect to my house wifi and am currently updating to latest software.
Still unable to link to phone hotspot.

I’m running the Elite Ti2 9. If you figure out how to get the hotspot function to work, please share. I’ve followed all the directions as well and can’t get this function to work. Otherwise, this unit does everything I need it to.

I got mine to work and the fix was easy once I figured it out.
It is not very clear but when you type in the password the font is upper case by default, once I figured that out and changed it, my password was accepted.

I think there is something wrong with the app .I have been struggling with this for a while with the link app and the lowrance app. Best I can get is phone mirroring with the lowrance app but no remote mfd control.

Thought I read somewhere that the phone app only mirrors and you need a tablet for remote.
That sais pretty sure it worked on my android phone
