The Ultimate ~ Everything Fish Finder...
The FishTrax 1C is for experienced anglers who demand a high-definition fishing experience. It incorporates a full-color, high-definition VirtuView™ TFTN display and has three operating modes: Fish Finder, Data, and Ice-Mode Digital Flasher. The Fish Finder mode identifies the presence of fish, bottom contour and composition, and the overall depth of the water on the HD color display. The Data Mode enlarges depth, temperature, and battery voltage readings so they are easy to read from several feet away while allowing the fish finder to run in the background so that you can keep an eye out for optimal fish habitats. The Ice-Mode Digital Flasher gives you real-time FishTrax sonar echoes like a traditional flasher, perfect for targeting suspended fish while ice fishing. The FishTrax 1C also incorporates user-selectable, dual-beam FishTrax Intelligent
Sonar which allows fine-tuning of the fish finder to adapt to any fishing style or platform. It has a 100-level sensitivity adjustment, multi-level depth ranges, and auto-zoom bottom tracking. Integrated fish and depth alarms intensify prey targeting.
FishTrax Intellegent SONAR...
FishTrax Intelligent Sonar uses SONAR sound waves to detect depth, locate fish, and define bottom contour, composition, and structure. Using specialized microprocessors, these sound waves are generated by the FishTrax display and sent to the FishTrax sonar sensor. The sonar sensor, acting first as a “speaker”, emits these sound waves as a series of pulses. Then, microseconds later, the sonar sensor switches to a “microphone” and listens for the return of the pulses as they bounce off of objects in the water column (sometimes referred to as “echoes”). The “echoes” are sent back to the display where using proprietary algorithms in the FishTrax software, they are analyzed for location, size, and composition of the objects. These signal are then arranged by FishTrax’s Human Interface Software and displayed in an easy to understand manner on the VirtuView ICON display.
Ultra-Light Power Supply...
Space and weight saving design is great for kayaks and float tube anglers alike. This unit comes with auto switching dual-beam FishTrax Intelligent Sonar that will read up to 240 feet in 1/10 precision.
Adjusting the amount of detail the shown on the VirtuView™ display is as simple as adjusting the fish finder’s sensitivity. There are 100 user selectable sensitivity settings to choose from. Select a higher sensitivity setting to show smaller sonar returns on-screen, or a lower setting to remove clutter from the screen. Adjusting Sensitivity also affects how sonar returns are identified as fish icon symbols - more fish will be detected at a higher setting, fewer at a lower setting.
Adjustable FishTrax Sonar Frequencies
User selectable dual beam FishTrax Intelligent Sonar allows you to fine-tune the FishTrax 1C to adapt to your fishing style. There are two operating frequencies (200 kHz and 83 kHz), each specifically designed to make finding fish effortless. A frequency of 200 kHz means that 200,000 sonar pulses are produced (and listened for) by the transducer every second, while 83 kHz represents 83,000 sonar pulses per second. The FishTrax 1C has Three Frequency Modes: 83 kHZ ~ 200 kHZ ~ Dual-View (200 kHz and 83 kHz)
200 kHz: Excels at showing minute details. Provides the best resolution and definition of structure and targets, but will not penetrate as deep as 83 kHz. Use this frequency mode for fishing in shallow water where detail is important.
83 kHz: Has a much greater depth penetration capability, but shows less definition. Use it in deeper water or in situations where the 200 kHz lacks bottom structure detail.
Dual-View: Use this mode to utilize the best features of each sonar frequency. The 200 kHz view will show greater detail of bottom structure and fish echoes, while the 83 kHz will reach deeper to show detail beyond the reach of the 200 kHz.
Fish & Depth Alarms...
You can set the FishTrax 1C to sound an audible alarm when a group of fish is detected. Turn it on, and when a fish passes under the sonar sensor, an audible alarm will sound. You can then use the fish depth scale to drop your bait to a depth that will get it in front of the fish. Leave the alarm on if you are using a crankbait so that you do not have to steadily watch for fish on the screen. If you hear the alarm, gently toss your bait at least 20 feet beyond the sonar sensor, allow the bait to drop to the depth of the fish alarm, and retrieve as recommended for the targeted species.
FishTarget™ Symbols & Depth
The FishTrax 1C's FishTarget™ feature displays fish icons and a numeric fish depth reading instead of fish arches to help identify fish. FishTrax sonar uses sophisticated software to analyze the "shape" of the sonar return from a suspended target to determine whether it is a fish or debris. When a fish is detected it is displayed as graphic fish symbol on the HD Color Display.
FishTrax 1C Operating Modes
Fish Finder Mode
In addition to measuring the overall depth of the water, this mode depicts the presence of fish in the water column and shows the bottom contour and composition. Choose between raw sonar data or FishTarget™ fish indicators. It also shows the water temperature.
This mode overlays large numbers over the fish finder display showing Depth, Temperature, and Battery Voltage. Use this mode to monitor critical data from far away while also monitoring the bottom contour & composition to uncover optimal feeding habitats.
Ice-Mode Digital Flasher
This mode gives you a real-time view of the FishTrax™ sonar echoes. Compared to the Fish Finder mode, the flasher shows what's happening below you right at that moment, whereas the fish finder mode shows you the sonar returns from the past.
