Great fish finder, portable

kaimu, Amazon
13 August 2014
  • Summary: Love to use this. We use this in Crowley Lake, California. We have mounted it to PVC pipe to allow us to mount on a sturdy extendable pole from Home Depot. We then wired it to a cigarette adapter. This allows us to easily take on rental boats along with a reliable power source whether it is on the console of boat or battery charging pack for car. Very reliable readings, but keep in mind, just because you see them, doesn't mean that you will catch them. Tight lines!

Works Great!

Marrco, Amazon

  • Summary: Installation was straightforward, no problems. The transducer was wider then the unit I took off so I had to fabricate a plate to attach it to. Wiring and mount was easy. When the boat was on the trailer I installed it and adjusted the transducer. I made sure the water line on the boat was level, using the trailer jack to adjust it. This is the way the boat sits in the water. I then adjusted the transducer per the instructions. Unit works great! I have it on a 22 ft.

Good for its purpose

  • Summary: I've had several Fishfinders and this one isn't quite as good for displaying "fish" as the others I've had. I use it on the front of my boat with a trolling motor transducer, so mostly, I'm not looking for fish with this one. I'm really interested in the water depth and it works great for that. The "fish" that it shows on the screen seem to be distorted to me, but as I said, it's really not a big deal.

Decent Product

  • Summary: I like this but I'm not sure how accurate the fish finder is. It registers algae as fish on here. It's clear and awesome for depth which I need for night fishing to avoid sand bars. The only bad thing I have to say is that the tie that comes with it to attach to the trolling motor is not very tight. I lost the rubber pad that holds this on the trolling motor and when I called Garmin, they sent me a worm clamp and some additional ties.

  • Summary: It is a great fish finder if you aren't buying it to find fish. I personally was using it simply for depths so it works as I wanted it to.

Great!

  • Summary: Installed the transducer on my trolling motor with the included trolling motor mount and it is just what I needed to know the water depth while trolling. I like how the depthfinder can tilt and swivel to give you the best view. I ended up buying a metal bracket to hold the transducer to the trolling motor instead of using the included plastic bracket.

Great Trolling Motor Bow Mount Fish Finder

B. Holland "Bkhollan", Amazon
1 December 2013
  • Summary: I bought this product to use off the bow of my boat to basically show the depth and see structure directly under the front of the boat for Crappie fishing and throwing my cast net. I have a side imaging unit mounted on the center console so this product works great for the purpose I wanted it for. When I was on the Ohio River by the dam, I was checking both my expensive Humminbird Side Imaging Unit and this unit to compare what it would show.

GREAT fish finder!!!

  • Summary: This is a GREAT, basic depth/fish finder. Installation was a snap. Power was supplied at the bow from the nav light's constant hot wire & ground. I chose to mount the transducer to my trolling motor, and it made for a very clean install. Perfect accessory at a very fair price!!

Garmin simply rocks.

Goonie, Amazon

  • Summary: You can't beat this thing for a plain Depth Sounder. I just needed depth readings, and this fish finder is less expensive than the cheapest $99 depth only instruments. I'm even shooting the transom mount transducer through my hull, epoxiexd down. Works very well, Garmin simply rocks.
