This is a very good fishfinder for just $100. It’s not very accurate at higher speeds but that maybe my fault, I don’t know if I installed the transducer right. Other than that, no complaints from me.

I fish on kayaks and canoes so I needed a portable fishfinder. I bought the portable version of Humminbird 175. Setup was very easy, took about 10 minutes. Everything is included, the unit comes with a carrying bag as well as the battery. It also comes with extra d-rings which was especially important for me since I use it on a kayak and the extra d-rings prevent it from going into the water.
I’m getting good readings for the temperature and depth but I doesn’t display the structure and fish. An underwater tree is shown as a big dark bump that looks more like a car than a tree. I’ve never seen it show a fish. I can fish but I never seen it in the display. I tried changing settings but it still doesn’t work. If you’re looking for a portable unit that shows temparature and depth, this unit is a good choice. It doesn’t do anything more than that.

I got this fishfinder because I can’t use a transom mount transducer, I fish in a lake with many submerged trees, I lost several transom-mount transducers. A portable transducer seemed like a good idea. However, the display in this unit so bad you can’t see anything in sunlight. I returned this unit to the store, total waste of time.

This fishfinder is a very good solution for smaller boats. It works as advertised, it displays temperature and depth accurately, the graph is basic but it gives you some idea of what’s beneath. The suction cup mount works for me, the transducer stays attached. Very good battery, lasts a long time.
