Product Description

This handheld depthfinder looks where you want it to, when you want it to!

Works where no other depthfinder can, and is now 60 percent more powerful! Shoot through thicker ice or muddier water to find water depth, dropoffs or ledges, or pinpoint hiding fish up to 200' away. Take it diving, snorkeling, crabbing or swimming; it is submersible up to 200' and it floats. Algorithmic programming virtually eliminates false readings, and the display updates four times per second for instant depth and temperature readings. No need to constantly watch the display for depth readings, because it flashes the last reading for five seconds after removal from the water. Shoot-thru technology allows readings through solid fiberglass hulls, as well as ice.

  • Maximum Depth: 2 1/2' to 199'
  • Frequency: 200kHz (20° beam)
  • Transmit Power: 200W (RMS)
  • Display Type: Polarized LCD with Softglow backlight
  • Screen Size: .93"W x .63"H
  • Battery Type: Four AA alkaline batteries (sold separately)
  • Battery Life: 10 hrs. continuous use
  • Dimensions: 2"W x 7"H x 2"D
  • Waterproof Rating: IPX8 submersible to 200'/floats
  • Warranty: Two years

great item to have if don't have a depthfinder on the boat and don't want to drill any holes. works great. wish it were longer so wouldn't have to reach over edge so much. unfortunately, screen stopped working after 9 months so have to return but will get a new one.

I've had two of these and am contemplating a third. While they work they are great: accurate, simple and small.
However, the first died after I took it at its word and used it underwater (I think the battery compartment isn't as water proof as it could be - or at all...), and the second has just developed a screen fault after two years of non-submersive use (i.e., just hanging it over the boat side).
So, I recommend it if you think of it as a temporary item that needs to be replaced maybe yearly depending on use.
So, West Marine, maybe think of lowering the price so we can treat it as a consumable....

        Cons

        Best Uses

        • Exploration Of Reef Areas

        Comments about Norcross Marine H22px Handheld Depthfinder:

        I have had two of these units and am about to purchase a third. They are the right size, the right price, and very much the right tool for the job. However THEY DO NOT LAST.

        As others have said they work really well, until they stop working. So far I have not had one last longer than a year (used in week-long bursts about once a month).

        This time I am going to keep it permanently in a waterproof bag AND remove batteries after every use and hope I can coddle it along a little longer.

        It's a shame - MANUFACTURES PLEASE IMPROVE THE DESIGN - I LOVE THIS THING WHEN IT WORKS....

                      This product worked the first time I took it out a couple years ago and it never worked again. If you want to use it as a depth finder I suggest you attach a line to it and use it as a lead line.

                        I.bought this item to use while ice fishing. The only thing it works good at is being a paper weight and telling the current temperature. I wanted to find the depth of this lake I'm fishing in and it never.shows up just the temp. Very frustrated I spent [$] on something that doesn't work.
