Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not happy. For starters, the battery-pack is heavier (at least 5 pounds) than I expected. The device is bulkier than it appears. It worked at first, and I was moderately impressed, but, after a day, it stopped working.. I returned it. April 1, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by non stick Overall I was a bit miffed that the unit would not stick on the pond prowler. The guy at the store assured me that it would. NO. So I used it by holding it in the water and it worked great. I will be making something that will be portable but till workable on my boat. March 17, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Handy unit This portable unit is great for the on the go fisherman. The battery life is incredible even when used ice fishing. One little thing is it doesn't always pick up fish that are there but I use it more for a depth finder than anything. Easy to control but a pain to get set up in its bag. It's a one time setup so take your time putting it together. All in all for what you pay it will help you catch more FISH! February 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just as advertised Simple, but effective fishfinder that will get the job done for kayaks or smaller boats. Displayed depth and temperature will help you choose the correct lure. Displays patches of weeds or rocks accurately. Suction cup sticks no matter where it's placed. One charge of the battery lasts forever. Highly recommended. December 5, 2013

Details: 
I just got this unit and used it once. While I have no issue mapping fish, I'm not sure how bait ball looks like when fish ID is turned on. Can any seasonal user shed some light on this subject? I'll be using this unit to chase landlocked salmon in a couple of weeks, and locating bait balls will really help my hunt. Thanks!

A: 
The PMAX175PT is a Dual Beam System . See the formulas below to determine the area of coverage with the individual beams.

16 degree (Multiply depth x .28) and for the 28 degree beam (Multiply depth x .42) for your area of coverage in diameter.

A: 
Depends on the depth of water you are in. If you are shallow say 10 ft then your area of sonar is small. If the water is 20 ft it's going to double the area covered. Hope this helps

A: 
I'm sure it can be replaced - all of the specs are listed on the side of the battery. I have never used up all of the life in a single day and have used for multiple days between charges. Great unit - you shouldn't have to worry about battery charge unless you are planning a week long trip without electricity.

A: 
For the PMAX 175 PT you would get approxiamately 20 hours of operation from a fully charged battery. The Battery is replaceable as well. This system will come with the Battery and Charger.

It comes with a rechargeable battery. It's kind of heavy, but, to answer your question, you don't need a separate unit.

A: 
Would work fine if your inflatable has a transom/motor mount - you will have to find a way to get your transducer in the water. It comes with a sealed battery - that is better than a marine battery for an inflatable, less weight and no way to spill in case in turns over.

A: 
Yes, the PMAX 175 PT can be used on a inflatable boat. The portable comes with a Battery that will supply power to the unit and unit would be stationary in the portable case. The Transducer will mount with a suction cup. Therefore, a hard flat surface would be needed to suction the Transducer to.

Never had a problem should do fine up to 200 feet. Mine seems real durable, only use it on canoe and kayaks - always being dragged across bottom when I launch.

The depth capbility of the PMAX175 PT is 600ft. So this should work fine with the proper installation.

A: 
It works as long as the battery stays warm and your not looking for flasher like information return. It's great as a depth finder. Fish don't usually mark but you can see the depth of your lure and if fish are moving around it. I use mine for it all the time in a shanty and it does the job for half the cost of a flasher.
