Video Transcript I’d like to reintroduce you to a company called Vexilar Marine Electronics. For over 50 years Vexlar has been finding ways to help anglers catch more and bigger fish out on the water. Many people know Vexilar now because of its ice-fishing. It developed 3-color flasher sonar technology that totally transformed the sport of modern ice-fishing and Vexilar has some exciting new products coming out for this winter that you have got to check out. But this is not about ice-fishing folks.
Many people don’t realize that it was back in 1982 that Vexilar developed the first liquid crystal sonar technology. That’s right it was 30 years ago that Vexilar developed liquid crystal sonar technology that you’re still using on your boats today. Well I’m going to show you something today that you will probably be using on your boats for the next 30 years.
Vexilar is now unleashing the power of your smartphone and tablets, turning it into Sonar Phone. Sonar Phone is truly a transformational product in many ways as it unleashes the power of mobile technology. You simply download the free app from the Android or Apple store, you buy the transmitter system that you put in boat and now you’re able to take advantage of this unbelievably high resolution, high quality sonar system. I don’t want you to get confused with radio transmitting systems or other Bluetooth technology. Wi-Fi technology allows you to cover enormous amounts of data, much more reliable, has a range of over a 100 yards. It is truly amazing what Wi-Fi can do when you link it to your smartphone or tablet.
With Sonar Phones you can take this system anywhere in the world. In fact it comes in 17 different languages. You download the app for free; you can have all your friends download the app for free. One of you can but a transmitter, all of you can share the signal or if you like you can customize it so that only you can see your own signal. It is truly amazing what this will mean to the sport of fishing or for any casual user who would like to understand what it’s like to use a high quality sonar system without having to spend $1000 to do it. And since you already own this technology, it’s an only natural.
Now Sonar Phones come in 3 different versions, I got to walk you through that. One – is the T-Pod. Now don’t let this little floating bobber throw you off. The T-Pod is a very powerful Wi-Fi transmitter. It weighs 4 1/2 ounces, it runs for about 4 hours on a single charge and it charges off your usb port. It as a single beam, a 300 beam and has ranges down to a 120 feet. It’s designed to be towed behind your kayak, your belly boat. You can cast it out from shore but we recommend you use a heavily enough line so if you lose it you don’t lose it.
The T-Pod is specifically designed to track through the water. It’s very stable. It’s a stable platform and it’s kind of amazing. This little bobber consists of some cutting edge technology that is truly transformational in the sport of Marine Sonar. But it’s required, you put this in the water, it’s activated when it’s in the water and you’re good to go. It now sends to your tablet or smartphone and it works really well.
Now here in the ranger boat I use a thing called the T-Box. The T-box is a little bit more powerful than the little portable T-Pod. Because it use a 12v power supply, has a dual beam frequency, has ranges to 240 feet, very powerful, very competent system.
And then of course the 3rd version is a port-o-pack case so you can take it with you. A much more reliable power supply so you can use the more powerful T-Box in more applications. I want to again stress that the Sonar Phone system is not some cheap little toy. This is not a toy in any respect. It is a fully functional system and you will actually go through it. In fact I urge all of you to go to the app store and download the app for free. Go through the demo and actually run it in the demo mode and see for yourself. It is truly amazing what it will do. I encourage all of you and all of your friends to download the app for free.
Check out the functions, check out the menus. See all the things that the Sonar Phone can do. It’s amazing, but remember the app is for free. So you want to check it out, fascinating product, absolutely amazing. But wait there is more, there is more because if you buy any of the Sonar Phone products you also get a free Neoprene smartphone armband. So you can actually put your smartphone and take it with you everywhere you go. Literally I have had it with me. I have been fishing with it all day and it works really well. The Neoprene armband a $29.95 value comes free with the purchase for a limited time. read less

Plus the rod holder can be rigged with a Vexilar cup holder.
The ultra-pack handle offers a firm place to hold your transducer a float while in transport. But if you choose not to use your float to suspend your ice juicer you have three pre-tapped holes in the base to screw in the supplied eye-bolt to suspend your ice-ducer if you wish, this is a popular technique with anglers who fish thin ice conditions.
Inside your ultra-pack is a powerful 12 Volt 9Amph Vexilar battery that is fully enclosed. You can gain access to the battery compartment by simply removing the two screws found in the base. So it’s easy to change batteries or check connections if you need to. A master power on-off switch and eliminates the need to ever manually disconnect the battery from the connections. We recommend that you store your ultra-pack with the power switch in the off position to avoid any slow drain on your battery when not in use.
Each ultra-pack comes with a D-130 battery status indicator. This device is great to give you a digital status of your battery while you are fishing and also can be used during the charging cycle.
