This wireless fish finder has eliminated the need for carrying along a long and heavy cable transducer. With the addition of a sonar sensor transmitter, you can chill and enjoy your time fishing fully while the Venterior Portable Fish Finder does its work. The powerful display screen shows all the important information such as the depth, temperature, simulation move, depth range and scale, fish size etc.
Since this is the fish finder from the future, you don’t need to drill holes in your boat or kayak. The wireless sensor gets attached to the fishing line and all you need to do is cast it as far as you want into the water.
Wireless Fish Finder
The Venterior Portable Fish Finder is wireless and thus it does not use a long and heavy cable for the transducer. Both the host and the sensor are wireless. The transmitter uses a sonar sensor which turns automatically on when you cast it into the water. You need to make sure to dry the sensor, as otherwise it will continue working. The wireless fish finder can be used in rivers, lakes and sea. It can detect both the fish location as well as their sizes, and can be used as a depth sounder as well.
Being wireless also makes the Venterior Portable Fish Finder very portable as it is compact in size and also lightweight.
The display screen of the Venterior Portable Fish Finder is made of color TFT LCD. The screen has a convenient size of 50×45 mm. The display shows numerous useful things about the surroundings and the fishes’ location. For example, the display screen shows the water depth and temperature, the power indicator, the depth scale and range, simulation mode and the bottom contour. Moreover, you can even get an idea about the size of the fish from the icons as they vary in sizes.
The display screen uses a white LED back light to give you support during the night time as well. The display screen’s contrast can be modified from 10 to 100 percent.
Depth and Temperature Range
The Venterior Portable Fish Finder uses both auto and manual range selection. The depth range coverage starts from 0.6 M (2 ft.) to 45 M (148 ft.). The fish finder has high detection accuracy as it uses 20 levels of sensitivity. You can choose the suitable measurement in either meter or feet.
The water temperature measurement is displayed in either Celsius or Fahrenheit and you can choose whichever works the best for you. The operation temperature range is from -20 degrees C to 70 degrees C, meaning you can easily use this Venterior Portable Fish Finder even on ice water.
You don’t need to drill holes in your boat or kayak anymore like the old fish finders demanded you to make place for the transducer. There are two small holes on the wireless sensor which allows you to tether the Venterior Portable Fish Finder with the fishing line and cast it into the water for as far as you want to. I think this is a great feature as it frees you from going through extra work with the drilling machine.
Sonar and Radio
The sonar frequency of the radio is 125 kHz. The sonar beam angle can cover up to 90 degrees direction. The radio frequency is 2.4 G.
Unlike many other fish finders available in the market, the Venterior Portable Fish Finder will remember your settings before you turn it off. I think this is a great feature as starting from the very beginning after each use can be super troublesome and a waste of time.
You need to allow several seconds for the fish finder to update the depth of the water when you throw the transmitter first time in the water. The fish finder will turn off automatically if the depth display of the unit reads ‘—‘for 5 minutes to save the power.
The Venterior Portable Fish Finder uses 4 AAA alkaline batteries for the mainframe or body of the fish finder. The transducer portion of the fish finder uses one polymer battery of 3.7 V. The power usage is pretty average and as expected of the regular fish finders.
