The Luckylaker WiFi Fish Finder Arrives @ GAC!

The LuckyLaker WiFi Fish Finder, priced at just £129.99, is a cheaper alternative to the Deeper and has its own unique features! Compatible with most iPhones, iPads and Android smartphones and tablets, the LuckyLaker uses a reliable WiFi connection to beam information back to your device. The unit can even be used with up to 5 devices simultaneously which can be a great benefit when fishing with friends!
The LuckyLaker works in fresh or salt water in depths from 0.6m up to 45m - thats almost 150ft - and also measures the surface temperature and displays it on your device. You can expect around 5 hours of operation from a single charge and it's wet switch means it only uses minimal power while out of the water. The robust sonar unit is designed to be tethered to your boat, float tube or kayak or you can tie a large snap swivel to your line, clip the unit on and cast it into your swim! Reeling the sonar unit in slowly with the rod tip in the air will send detailed info about the depth and bottom contours, temperature, structure, fish size and location back to your smartphone or tablet device - essential information for any serious angler!
The LuckyLaker Fishfinder is very easy to operate! Unscrewing the cap on the transducer will reveal the power button, charging port and operation LED's. The unit is charged using the supplied USB cable and can be plugged into any USB power source such as a computer. A red LED will indicate that the unit is charging and one it goes out it is fully charged. If you press the power button once, the unit will turn on and a blue LED will indicate this - it is best to wait 10 seconds or so before connecting your device to the units WiFi network just as you would do if you were connecting to a home or office WiFi network. Then screw the waterproof cap back on tightly and we are ready to go fishing! There is even a clear cap provided so you can see the bright blue LED indicator for fishing at night!
The LuckyLaker App is much simpler than the Deeper equivalent, but still has all the features you really need from fishfinder. Once the free WiFi Fish Finder App is installed on on your device, you will need to follow the simple steps in the instruction booklet to activate the sonar unit - you will need to do this just once with every new device you add the unit to for the first time. The App menu is very simple with an Operation Mode to use the fish finder, a very handy Demonstration Mode perfect for learning how to use the unit and a button for Parameter Settings so you can set up your fish finder to your own requirements. Your device needs to be running Android 2.1 and up or iOS 4.3 and higher to ensure that the App will operate correctly.
In the settings menu you will be able to adjust the sensitivity of the transducer, the depth range shown on screen, and a zoom setting if you want to concentrate on a particular depth. A shallow alarm can be set which will give an audible warning if you come into shallower water so you can save your boat and gear from loss or damage. A Fish ID setting turns sonar arcs into easily recognisable fish shapes and the fish alarm can be set to alert you to the presence of fish of all sizes - or just the big ones if you prefer! The displayed units of measurement can be set to Metres/Feet, Centigrade/Fahrenheit - or any combination you like, and the chart scroll speed can be set to match each fishing situation whether static, drifting or trolling.
The easy to read WiFi Fish Finder App uses the high quality display on today's smartphones and tablets to show clearly the water depth and temperature, battery status and signal strength, the contours of the bottom and of course any fish that might be there including their depth and comparative size. Everything the angler needs to see at a glance is on screen in a plain and simple format!
The LuckyLaker WiFi Fish Finder is available to purchase from Europe's largest fishing tackle store now but with limited stock arriving before the Christmas rush we will be selling these on a strictly first come first served basis!
