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

  • Battery Type: Four AA alkaline batteries (sold separately)
  • Battery Life: 10 hrs. continuous use
  • Dimensions: 2"W x 7"H x 2"D

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.

Great while it works but not long lived

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:

I previously wrote a glowing review about their customer service....well, guess what it broke again...and this time all I have gotten is the run-around...it is as though it is an entirely different company, hiding behind some computer generated messages....promises of fixing it, sending me tracking numbers but so far nothing...

Would not buy again, would not recommend to a friend, etc...beware

  • Sonar Performance

Cons

  • Not Durable
  • Only works for a short time
  • Water penetrates the sealed area

Best Uses

  • Finds depth for diving and spear fishing
  • Small Boat/Canoe/Kayak

Comments about Norcross Marine H22PX Handheld Depthfinder:

Products is a great help in locating correct depth for diving and spear fishing. It is a good idea with poor quality manufacturing. My experience with West Marine is they carry high quality products as the marine environment is so destructive. This depth sounder has failed after two uses and was replaced. Next one lasted 4 trips as did the third one. Number 4 is in the box and will be used on our next excursion

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

            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....
