Onshore GPS Mode (PRO+ and CHIRP+ model)
The Deeper Smart Sonar PRO+ and CHIRP+ has a GPS receiver that enables the device to map your fishing spots by creating bathymetric, bottom contour maps when fishing from the shore. Onshore GPS Mode operates in the same manner as Boat Mode, but instead of using your smartphones' GPS, Onshore GPS Mode uses the internal GPS receiver installed in the Deeper PRO+/CHIRP+.
When in Onshore GPS mode, you will notice that there is a GPS status icon in the top of the screen.
- GPS found means your Deeper GPS location has been fixed, and you are ready to start mapping.
- Looking for GPS means your Deeper is processing satellite information and currently the location of your device is either unknown or not precise enough for mapping. Leave the Deeper floating in the water for 5-10 minutes until the status changes to GPS found
- If the “Looking for GPS” status doesn’t change to “GPS found” for a long time, this could be because your Deeper is indoors or under the roof of a boat, because the device is submerged, or because the surroundings are blocking the GPS signal (for example, in a gorge or a mountainous area).
ⓘ The performance of the internal GPS receiver is dependent on weather conditions, landscape features and satellite constellation. High voltage electricity wires in the area will impair performance.
