Ice Fishing GPS Fishfinder Ideas?
I went to this as well. It just made too much sense for ice fishing because I always have my phone on me....so if I find something in summer I want to remember for winter I can drop a way point super easy. It seemed like my handheld GPS was always a hassle to remember batteries for, etc.
GaryQ, yes just pick up a $20 flasher battery and hook up your 'Bird unit. Use spade connectors to connect to the battery - any hardware store will have them.
I'm sure you can also find an ice transducer for it as well for around $50 or so.
Great ideas, so you're both saying that I can run the regular finders/gps units on the standard flasher battery? And just not have the transducer being used? So its the same as using it in my boat but without the ability to use the transducer of course?
And just get a power cord that you put some sort of alligator clips on to attach to the battery?
