Sonar

Looking to buy a simple sonar that's just shows the depth with numbers. No fishfinding stuff.... I am I Gran cannarie , Las palmas just now and for 10-15 days more. I will avoid to pay 30 eruos for a new... So is there someone having a used for sale?

Cheers

Re: Sonar

Cybber,
What you want isn't called a sonar but an echo sounder (much cheaper).

Re: Sonar

You are far more likely to find a suitable second hand fish finder which will work just as well rather than a dedicated depth sounder. Can be more useful too showing the bottom features and changes in depth as a picture. You can turn the fish ID off on most of them just to get the depth measurements.

Garmin by choice but Eagle and Lowrance would also be good for cheap fish finders.

Re: Sonar

Hi. Yes, I know it is depth sounder, I got influence by the Spanish people here, they say sonar about it.
I wish to mount it inside the hull and all the fishfinder are big, I hade a depth sonar in earlier it was a bit smaller.
It was I fishfinder mounted in this boat but it didn't worked correctly so I tried to unmount it and had a plan to mount it again but it didn't worked. It was mount with silicone inside the hull.
