Product: Condor 322 dc 83/200 kHz Fishfinder
Nautical Instruments - Fishfinder
High resolution with 320 vertical pixels, Dual Cone technology and the convenience of a windows menu system in this incredible value fishfinder!
The new Condor 322 dc incorporates the very latest in fishfinder technology in a compact unit all at an extremely affordable price. Thanks to the special transom mount DualCone 83/200 kHz transducer this unit provides a very detailed description of what lies beneath the surface. Two different type of fish icons are be displayed on the screen, depending on the frequency of the relative echo.
Echoes coming from the narrow 20° cone, correspond to the 200 kHz frequency and are shown in white, while the ones coming from the wide 60° cone, correspond to the 83 kHz frequency and are shown in black. This allows the user to distinguish echoes coming from fish located right below the boat from those coming from fish located further away. When searching the actual cone angle can be as much as 120°, making the Condor 322 dc a top performing fish searcher.
The large, high resolution 5” LCD screen of the Condor 322 dc, with its 320 x 240 pixels and 16 levels of gray, provides perfect visibility in any light condition, even in sunlight or when wearing polarized sunglasses. The white LED backlighting is dimmable and gives great clarity when used at night.
The windows menu system guides the user through all the advanced functions of the Condor 322 dc, making using this unit very simple and intuitive. Thanks to the combination of the “Oval Pad” on the top and the six keys on the bottom, all functions can be easily accessed though a simple self explanatory menu system, that enables the user to become familiar with operating the unit in only few minutes.
The convenient “+” and “-” direct access keys, allow the user to exit the automatic mode instantly and adjust the range manually, with the touch of a single key. In the same way, it is possible to return to automatic mode by simply pressing the “+” and “-” keys together.
The dual cone 83/200 kHz transom mount transducer of the Condor 322 dc supplied with the unit has a built in surface water temperature sensor. It provides excellent performance even at boating speeds, as high as 40 knots.
Single plug connector for both power and transducer enables installation and removal of the Condor 322 dc in a matter of seconds, while the compact IPX7 waterproof housing makes it perfectly suitable for use in marine environments

* Typically, all fishfinders will read deeper in freshwater than in saltwater. The actual depth capability depends on:
- Trasducer installation
- Salinity. In saltwater, air bubbles and zooplankton are the two most important factors affecting the performance, and change from day to day. Also decayed vegetation, that produces “muck” that can be up to 2 feet deep, affects the performance of all fishfinders.
