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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Great app. I've been catching a ton of fish using the sp300 fish finder with this app. I also love that it connects to Navionics. I had a Humminbird portable fish finder but it sucked compared to the Vexilar fish finder.
Now compatiable with tablets that do not have GPS
