CONS

  • Broke with less than 20hrs of use. I primarily use this for the wav points. Worked fine for about 6 months. Then one day noticed it stopped saving the wav points after each use.
  • After mounting the sensor bracket to my boat, I started to attach the sensor with the supplied stainless bolt and locknut, but after tightening the bolt about halfway, the bolt and nut seized. I am unable to tighten it anymore to secure the sensor, and I am unable to get the bolt out to replace it with a higher-quality stainless bolt and nut.

PROS

  • Meets all my needs. Easy to use and great price

CONS

  • I have only had this for six months and already it does not work.
  • The transducer broke after 2 trips out to the water. The warranty is a joke.
  • I have struggled with this fish finder since the beginning. It never marks fish- ever. The DI rarely works. Typically only a black screen. I have adjusted the transducer in every way possible to get a reading off with no luck. I also own a Helix 5 chirp GPS that works flawlessly, I wish I could swap the DI unit for the chirp.
