Greay product, bad price


Great device, works as shallow as a foot of water, clear screen (i can see fish without glasses on) fast refresh when crusing at slow to moderate speeds

wanted it now so (rarely) i shopped around and found it in wallymart for half the price (not a sale, regular price) so went with them. Like i said, its rare i shop away from the egg because they ship it quick & great prices, but not on this product

Product Specifications

The Fishfinder 160C is a rugged, affordable color sounder for recreational anglers who fish primarily in freshwater lakes. Fish returns and bottom information are clearly shown on the unit's bright, sunlight-readable color display, making it easier for you to scope out your fishing grounds. Fishfinder 160C's included dual-beam transducer provides excellent shallow-water performance, and the wide viewing angle lets you see fish even off the sides of the boat. The 160C also offers Ultrascroll, which refreshes the screen with lightning speed so you always see the most up-to-date information. You can manually adjust the gain or set to Auto Gain, which adjusts the level of detail you see automatically.
