The Go Anywhere, Do Anything, Fish Finder...

The FishTrax™ 1C is modeled for the skilled fisherman who wants the high-definition fishing capability. It includes a full-color, high-definition VirtuView™ TFTN display in addition to 3 functional modules: The Fish Finder, Data, and Ice-Mode Digital Flasher. The Fish Finder method recognizes the habitation of game, analyzes lineament and structure, and general depth of the water on the High definition color layout. The Data Mode amplifies depth, thermal, and battery wattage assessment, so they can be effortlessly read from several feet away. Ice-Mode Digital Flasher provides its user with real-time FishTrax™ sonar echoes just like the classic flasher. Perfect for today’s modern ice angler to target his or her suspended prey. The FishTrax™ 1C features an operator-selectable, dual-beam FishTrax™ Intelligent Sonar that allows its user to tweak their fish finder so that it will adjust to any fishing technique or platform. With its 100-level affectability modification, multi-level depth ranges, and auto-zoom ground tracking, any angler can step up their prey targeting with satisfaction. It comes with 2 functional airwave frequencies (200 kHz and 83 kHz) so you can fine tune its sonar readings in shallow or deep water without complexity.

Powered By:
4 AAA batteries the space and weight saving design is great for kayaks and float tube anglers alike. This unit comes with auto switching dual-beam FishTrax™ Intelligent Sonar that will read up to 240 feet in 1/10 precision.

FishTrax™ Technology

FishTrax™ Intelligent Sonar uses SONAR sound waves to detect depth, locate fish, and define bottom contour, composition and structure. Using specialized microprocessors, these sound waves are generated by the FishTrax™ display and sent to the FishTrax™ Sonar Sensor (Transducer). The sonar sensor, acting first as a “speaker”, emits these sound waves as a series of pulses. Then, microseconds later, the sonar sensor switches to a “microphone” and listens for the return of the pulses as they bounce off of objects in the water column (referred to as “echoes”). The “echoes” are sent back to the display where, using proprietary algorithms in the FishTrax™ software, they are analyzed for location, size, and composition. These signal are then arranged by FishTrax’s™ Human Interface Software and displayed in an easy to understand manner on the VirtuView™ HD Color Display.

Adjusting the Sensitivity:

Adjusting the amount of detail the shown on the VirtuView™ display is as simple as adjusting the fish finder’s sensitivity. There are 100 user selectable sensitivity settings to choose from. Select a higher sensitivity setting to show smaller sonar returns on-screen, or a lower setting to remove clutter from the screen. Adjusting Sensitivity also affects how sonar returns are identified as fish icon symbols - more fish will be detected at a higher setting, fewer at a lower setting.



User selectable dual beam FishTrax™ Intelligent Sonar allows you to fine tune the FishTrax™ 1C to adapt to your fishing style. There are two operating frequencies (200 kHz and 83 kHz), each specifically designed to make finding fish effortlesss. A frequency of 200 kHz means that 200,000 sonar pulses are produced (and listened for) by the transducer every second, while 83 kHz represents 83,000 sonar pulses per second.

The FishTrax™ 1C has Three Frequency Modes:

  • 83 kHZ
  • 200 kHZ
  • Dual-View (200 kHz and 83 kHz)

200 kHz: Excels at showing minute details. Provides the best resolution and definition of structure and targets, but will not penetrate as deep as 83 kHz. Use this frequency mode for fishing in shallow water where detail is important.

83 kHz: Has a much greater depth penetration capability, but shows less definition. Use it in deeper water or in situations where the 200 kHz lacks bottom structure detail.

Dual-View: Use this mode to utilize the best features of each sonar frequency. The 200 kHz view will show greater detail of bottom structure and fish echoes, while the 83 kHz will reach deeper to show detail beyond the reach of the 200 kHz.


FishTarget™ Symbols and Depth

The FishTrax™ 1C's FishTarget™ feature displays fish icons and a numeric fish depth reading instead of fish arches to help identify fish. FishTrax™ sonar uses sophisticated software to analyze the "shape" of the sonar return from a suspended target to determine whether it is a fish or debris. When a fish is detected it is displayed as graphic fish symbol on the VirtuView™ Display.


Fish Finder Mode

In addition to measuring the overall depth of the water, this mode depicts the presence of fish in the water column and shows the bottom contour and composition.

Data Mode

This mode overlays large numbers over the fish finder display showing Depth, Temperature and Battery Voltage. Use this mode to check the condition of the batteries.

Ice-Mode Digital Flasher

This mode gives you a real time view of the FishTrax™ sonar echoes. Compared to the Fish Finder mode, the flasher shows what's happening below you right at that moment, whereas the fish finder mode shows you the sonar returns from the past (a historical image of what has happened).
