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.

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....

    Comments about Norcross Marine H22PX Handheld Depthfinder:

    Wanted to purchase a sailboat that I could keep in a marina that was skinny water at low tide. Everyone I talked to gave me different opinions as to the depth at low tide. The water is dark and the bottom is soft mud so it was difficult to determine the depth visually or with a lead line. So I purchased the Norcross handheld depth finder, went out in my kayak, and probably took 100 readings all around the marina, the channel, and the particular slip I wanted. I now have a solid knowledge of the draft I can carry, and the shallow spots in the marina. The unit was simple to use and worked perfectly. I can now purchase the boat I wanted with confidence.

    Really like this depth finder but as with some plastics, certain sunscreens will dissolve plastic case and it becomes terrible to handle.

          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.
