The Deeper Smart Sonar couldn’t be easier to set up and use. It’s small and ultra-light, so it’s suitable for casting using most standard lines. It’s the same size and weight as its Bluetooth forerunner, but comes with more powerful components, stronger connectivity and greater range. Now shore anglers can access echo sounder data with a level of accuracy that was previously available only from expensive on-boat consoles.
The PRO uses a WiFi connection to transfer more accurate and detailed sonar data to your smartphone or tablet. This WiFi connection gives the PRO an extended casting range of up to 330ft/100 m. Please not this WiFi connection is an independent wireless signal between your sonar and your smartphone or tablet, and does not require an internet connection or phone signal in order to work.
Connecting your smartphone or tablet to your PRO couldn’t be easier. Your PRO will turn on automatically when it’s in the water. Then simply to turn on WiFi on your smartphone or tablet, find the WiFi signal from your Deeper, and connect. No internet or phone signal is necessary. You can use your Deeper device anywhere in the world, so if your next fishing trip is in the Amazon rainforest, no problem.
Maximise connectivity: If you are casting your PRO long distances, it’s possible that you will experience connectivity issues. This is because, as the WiFi signal becomes weaker the further away it gets, your phone will automatically start searching for a stronger signal, which may cause disconnection. To stop this, simply turn off Mobile Data, and in the case of iOS devices WiFi Assist, and your phone will always stay connected to your smart sonar’s WiFi signal.
When using Boat Mode, you can use your PRO to add detailed bathymetric data onto your maps in real-time. These maps can be archived and accessed at any time, enabling you to master the waters you fish. This feature uses the GPS on your smartphone, but does not require a phone or internet signal to work.
The PRO model has a higher scanning resolution, enabling it to separate objects down to a distance of just 0.4 inches / 1.3 cm. With an 8 times extended dynamic range, you can know detect and identify objects with much greater accuracy. This means you can watch the underwater action in real time on your phone, all in incredible detail, then pick out your targets.
Fast moving targets? The PRO has double the scanning frequency of earlier models, sending out 15 scans per second. This means it can capture faster moving objects underwater, making it easier to identify the fish below and meaning nothing will pass underneath your sonar undetected.
Having a Deeper Smart Sonar PRO means being connected to the latest smart angling features, and being part of community of smart anglers. The Deeper App is regularly updated with new features, so for the best performance from your PRO make sure you regularly update your Deeper App. Plus features like social media sharing will connect you with an online community of fellow smart anglers.
