Casting and scanning
Cast your Deeper PRO or PRO+ to the spot you want to scan (up to 100 m / 330 ft away) and reel it back in. As you slowly reel back, you will see underwater scans shown on your smartphone or tablet.
ⓘ When you cast and reel in your Deeper sonar, keep your smartphone/tablet in a position where it can easily pick up the signal from your sonar. If your smartphone / tablet is on the ground or in your pocket, the connection may be unstable. We recommend using the Deeper Smartphone Mount for rods.
With the PRO+, you can also create underwater topography maps as you cast. Follow these steps:
- Select Onshore GPS mode (setting > sonar mode > Onshore GPS).
- Cast out a short distance and wait for the satellite icon to turn from blinking orange (searching) to green (GPS connection established).
- When the icon is green, cast to the spot you want to map, and reel in. The map on the Deeper App will fill in with color-coded depth data.
ⓘ Please note it can take some time for the GPS system to pick up your position, especially if you have not used your device for some time. When making a series of casts, it is possible the satellite icon will change from green back to blinking orange in between casts. Please wait for the icon to turn green again. A red satellite icon means the GPS signal is unavailable. This can be caused by weather conditions, the surrounding landscape, the configuration of the satellites themselves, or if the signal from your Deeper Sonar is obstructed by something.
