The Go Anywhere, Do Anything, Fish Finder...
The FishTrax 1X is for intermediate anglers looking for advanced features to pinpoint optimal fish habitats. It incorporates a VirtuView™ Dot Matrix LCD that can be adjusted to show raw sonar data or the FishTarget programming can be turned on to pinpoint the exact depth of your prey. The FishTrax 1X also includes auto-switching, dual-beam FishTrax Intelligent Sonar, as well as a 10-level sensitivity adjustment, multi-level depth ranges, and auto-zoom bottom tracking. Integrated fish and depth alarms intensify prey targeting even further.
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™ Dot Matrix 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 10 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.
You can set the FishTrax 1 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.
Adjustable Depth Range...
You can set the display on the FishTrax 1X to automatically adjust the display range to the water depth, or manually set it to lock the display in a specific depth range. Select AUTO to have the display automatically adjust the depth range for the detected water depth. Advanced users may want to manually select 5, 15, 20, 30, 60, 120 or 240 ft. to only see sonar echoes in those ranges. Keep in mind this locks the depth range of the display to this preset range and ONLY sonar returns from that range will be displayed.
Use a Broom Stick...
The FishTrax 1X 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 a graphic fish symbol on the VirtuView™ Display.
