The LX5 is an awesome unit ....... top notch! The X67 is fine too but some like the simplicity of a great flasher. Some do not want to spend time changing multiple settings like on the X67 ..... Chart speed, ping, sensativity, surface, bottom, auto depth, color background ........ more questions on ice fishing forums right now on how to use the damm thing then time fishing. Not nearly worth the trouble IMO ...... it won't catch you any more fish then an LX5 but it'll take up more of your fishing time.send it back and get a X-67.
