sort of useful – Portable Sonar 2.1" LCD Fish Finder Alarm (4*AAA) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
it accurately measures depth, supposedly finds fish too and tells you in what depth it found the fish and you can make it beep everytime it finds fish.
cheap, works to some extent.
I find it only useful to measure depth.
Cons:
registers rocks, pebbles, plants etc as fish...
i went in an area where it was 1m deep, alot of plants and i could see clearly to the bottom, this thing registered fish every update sequence however there was no fish there, just plants and rocks.
i used it for about an hour and battery went from full to half, that was abit shocking.
Other:
I'm thinking of letting this float in my bathtub, i bet it will beep and display it found fish! FUNKY!
the display doesn't seem to be isolated against moist, thats not so great actually.
Bottomline:
I could use this to measure the depth of where i'm fishing, that is only way i think this is useful or perhaps if i find waters where the bottom is completely plain then it can find fish.
if there are rocks and plants it will say there is fish when there isn't.
