I know there are several people who don't care for Tacktick systems, and there are some issues in regards to reliability
and connectivity. But, I just discovered a huge plus, atleast for me.
One caveat, I don't have the manual, so this might be a well known feature... regardless it's assured me on my decision.
I have the mn 100-2 display... it's the wireless, solar
powered display, and it's linked to a triducer giving me depth
, speed and temp. A killer feature of this system is the ability to demount the display with a push of a tab, and take it where you want. I have it's brain wired to my instruments breaker on the boat, so I naturally assumed with the breaker off, the sensors wouldn't function. Not true!
While anchored last night, I wanted to monitor
, but I only have one 80amp hour battery
, so I'm cautious about my power usage. I turned off my instruments, and turned on this display, and took it to my vbirth... and it showed me the depth the whole night! I had the light on setting one... so I could wake up and glance at it and know where I was... and there was a depth alarm
It didn't even dent its internal battery
, and had no effect on my house battery. This gave me a huge piece of mind, without a repeater unit, and without using the house battery!
