Product Description

Humminbird PiranhaMax 230 PT Portable 4-Inch Waterproof Fishfinder

The 230 PT can be used like a traditional fishfinder with the suction cup transducer. Or, you can use it with the SmartCast wireless system to locate fish under docks or anywhere you can cast the SmartCast Advanced Remote Sensor(RSS). It can even be used without a boat. The RSS includes a 4 level Grayscale sonar, water surface temperature readings and a programmable light for night fishing. The portable unit's 60 degree Dual Beam sonar is optimized for bottom and structure clarity with wide coverage and up to 600 feet of depth capability. It all packs away in a rugged, portable case. Operates on 8AA alkaline batteries.

Compatible with:

  • Humminbird: PiranhaMax 230

5.0 out of 5 stars Fits my needs perfectly Sept. 3 2009

I've had the opportunity to use both the wired transducer attached via suction cup and the wireless remote sonar sensor. First I'd like to make it clear that the RF45 RSS is included. Some of the product information I read seemed to indicate that it was not included, but that was wrong.

I bought this because several times a year I go to a local lake and rent a boat to fish for trout and Kokanee salmon, the rest of the time I spend fishing I fish from the shore. During a recent trip when I rented a boat I used the wired transducer. The boat I was on was a large pontoon boat and the only place to attach the transducer was to the back of one of the pontoons. The surface was rounded and had algae all over it. I got the transducer on but after a short time with the 50hp motor at full power the transducer fell off. That was okay, I wasn't expecting it to hold on at higher speeds, especially with the poor surface it was attached to. Once we got in the area where we wanted to fish and started going trolling speeds the transducer held on very well, it might have fallen off once every few hours. I do expect that if the surface had been flat and not covered in algae it would have held on even better. We trolled in water from about 30' deep to 110' deep and in every case the fish finder did well, even auto adjusting the focus on the display as we went from 30'->60'->90'. I learned a lot about this lake using the finder that I would have never known no matter how many times I've fished it without one.

The wireless sonar sensor was a little tricky for me because it seemed that it was not being detected and the display would go to a simulation without displaying that fact on the screen, making me think the simulation was what I was seeing in the water I was on. After I figured out how to keep the unit from going to simulation mode it worked well. I haven't marked a fish with it yet, but I do now know the depth and what the lake bed looks like in my favorite shore fishing locations.

After several uses including an all day boat outing I'm still on the first set of batteries.

I like this unit and would recommend it to other fisherman like myself who fish from shore and sometimes a rented boat.

This product works excellent. It is very easy to operate and very portable. I can't think of anything I would change about this fishfinder.

2.0 out of 5 stars Can only troll with it Aug. 31 2009
By Thomas G. Everhart - Published on

Was surprised by the fact that speed is restricted to trolling only with this product. Makes it hard to speed to where the fish are. This should have been noted in the sales literature. Guess I will be sending it back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fine product except.... March 8 2011

I purchased this portable fish finder based partially on the previous reviews. I intend to use it on destination fly-in fishing trips in Canada. I was surprised by two things....first the product seems to be a collection of parts...assembly is required. Second, depending the transducer included, the unit doesn't fold into as compact a form as what I was led to believe. There is no picture on the outside of the box as to how the folded up unit will look. I will have to take care protecting the transducer during travel as a result.

5.0 out of 5 stars fish hunter Feb. 8 2011

Piranahmax 230 arrived before due date & after reading user guide took out for trial run. Worked perfectly & at depths we fished at(up to 120 meters)it seemed to be even better. Still haven't used the smart-cast device yet but if the rest of the product is anything to go by it will work just as well. An excellent product that does what it says it will do. Would recommend this product to anyone, well worth the money & the ease of operation is great. Only grey scale image's but the fish don't seem to care & who really needs a colour screen just to find fish.
If you are looking for an easy to use fish finder that is great value for money you can't go past this option, absolutely fantastic - 10/10.
