My initial response was, “wow, this thing is a cool toy”, a camera that generates its own wifi hotspot with a 100’ range AND allows up to 5 devices to connect simultaneously.
Connecting to the hotspot on the iPhone/iPad (and Android devices) was extremely quick and easy.
There was a group of 4 of us fishing together on the weekend, and within minutes, we were all connected and watching the action below on our various phones and devices (I chose to use my iPad).
Bottom line, this unit is easy to use, the free app is simple and uncomplicated with full functionality. You can control the camera's LED lights, adjust the gain on the camera, record video or simply take a snapshot of whatever you are seeing on your phone.
The battery life is everything Vexilar promised, we were entertained for over 6 hrs on the ice.
Simply put, the Fish Phone is not a toy, it is just another great tool for the tackle box from Vexilar.
We’ll see you on the water.
