When you are trying to catch that large fish hiding under a rock or just finding any fish down below it is best to have a Fishfinder installed on your boat. But with so many devices on the market, which is the right one for your needs.
Good news is that the editors at Tackle Village put together a guide that not only tells you about the best equipment but also how to read the display correctly once you install it. The Fishfinder uses sonar to create real-time images of the objects beneath the boat. While sonar technology like this used to only have military applications, it’s become increasingly mainstream and now boaters use it to find fish. High-end fish finders may have additional GPS features to help boaters find areas that are rich in fish. They may also be able to network with other devices on your ship, or even play satellite radio!
Just because the weather is nice, it doesn’t mean it’s great for using technology. All of these devices have an LCD screen for displaying information. In sunlight, these screens catch the light and reflect it back into your eyes, making it hard to see. With the light reflected from water, this effect gets even worse. Turning up the device’s backlight only does so much, and can suck the life out of any battery-powered device. Sunglasses may reduce glare, but they’ll also cut down on the light you receive from your screen, further impairing visibility.
Luckily, there’s an easy solution. NuShield’s DayVue screen protector is a sturdy, yet lightweight film that fits over your device’s screen. It allows you to read the display while eliminating glare and it also works well if you wear polarized sunglasses. NuShield cuts all its screen protectors to match your screen size. The film is thin and it easy to install.
NuShield already has sizes that fit most of the major manufacturer’s devices such as Garmin, Furuno, Humminbird, Lowrance, Magellan, Raymarine and Simrad just to name a few. If you don’t see a screen protector that matches your screen’s size, contact NuShield by filling out the form on their site. They’ll cut a film to fit your device, whether that’s your GPS, your fishfinder or the LCD TVs in the state rooms, so you can view your screen inside without glare.
The devices on your boat are extremely useful — but you can’t use them when you have trouble reading the screen. With a DayVue GPS screen protector, you’ll protect your devices, cut down on glare, and be able to boat and fish in comfort.
