Works great I moved my old finder to the bow on my fish n ski and use this as my main sounder with a galaxy tab 4 thats not much good for anything else. I have it tied in with navonics charts and and gps and can drop markers where I'm catching fish on different lakes. However, does need some recalibration every once in a while. Cool product overall.
This is a good sonar If you use a small boat or canoe and on a budget this is a great alternative to buying a traditional mounted sonar. I use mine ice fishing and it works fine... If Vexilar stayed true to their roots and pushed out a flasher mode update this device would crush the 'deeper' competition. I have run this on boats that have another sonar just to see how it performs and its solid. I do find it disconnects occasionally if i leave the app on my phone but not difficult to relaunch.
A little frustrating at times My unit stops transmitting its Wi-Fi signal a lot. Then I have to try to figure out how to start it again. Only has the one button and I usually have to long press that to get it started up again. Otherwise it's a great unit.
Will not read depth through the ice. The angle is too big for it to give you the right depth reading. Even though a 10inch hole. Plus the thicker the ice the worse it gets.
I like it but never owning a finder before I have no idea of how to fully use it or how to read what I'm seeing. A in-depth instructional video would be great. Would rate 5 stars for video.
App Having problems with the app shutting off and returning to home screen. Does it with my tablet and phone. Does the same thing with my fish camera also. Any suggestions???
Now compatiable with tablets that do not have GPS
