Talking Tackle Depth Whisperer

This past winter I received an email from one of the founders of Talking Tackle depth Whisperer. This led to our talking by phone and my hearing again a not too uncommon story about the potential benefits of having a talking depth sounder aboard a boat. These guys decided enough talk, and did something about it.

The product they invented is one of the best examples of audio technology being applied to a fish finder that I’ve come across in the past eight years. The voice is pleasant, the controls are simple to understand, and the technology is relatively easy to install. I now use the talker on my HobieCat, Porta-Boat and Ranger fisherman and love it. The nice thing is, so do my fishing buddies.

The technology features:

  • Weather and water resistant
  • Easily mounted nearly anywhere on boat with DUAL-LOCK tape (provided)
  • Cable provided for connection to 12 volt cigarette lighter plug
  • Power-on/processor-active indicator
  • 3.5 mm audio output port for connection to alternative speaker devices
  • Volume adjustable too easy to hear 85 decibel output
  • Verbal output menu selection system
  • Customizable time interval between VERBAL depth announcements
  • Customizable VERBAL Shallow Water Alert and Bottom Structure Alert
  • VERBAL Low Boat Battery Alarm
  • Tracks Bottom up to 450 feet

Yes, you read correctly, this device will even tell you if your cranking battery is starting to run low – how cool is that.

For more information about this technology I strongly suggest you visit their website where you can see and hear it function for yourself.
