ABOUT YOUR AQUA-VU Z With your Aqua-Vu Z underwater viewing system you will become an aquatic explorer much like a skin diver - but without getting wet! Swim your camera over the bottom landscape of your fishing grounds while watching "what's really down there." Or, with camera suspended down a hole in the ice, see how approaching fish react to your bait. Turn on Aqua-Vu's invisible infrared camera lights to enhance the viewing of bottom and fish in low-light conditions. However you employ your

EASY SETUP Your Aqua-Vu Z requires no complex assembly. Follow these simple steps: 1. Connect the monitor to the Carrying Shuttle (a one-time procedure) using the two black plastic headed thumbscrews provided. (You will tighten and loosen these thumbscrews every time you use the Aqua-Vu Z - for positioning/tilting the monitor for the most convenient viewing, as well as for carrying and stowing the unit.) 2. Plug the camera cable into the "CAMERA IN" port (a one-time procedure). 3. Place the bat

OPEN-WATER USE Ballast Weights and Front-viewing Fin Underwater video cameras may be lowered into the water from breakwaters, docks, and fishing piers, as well as from anchored boats and pon- toons. Innovative bank fishermen use them, too. Much of the open-water viewing by anglers is done from boats while drifting or slow-trolling on lakes, or from boats dealing with stream current. For best con- trol of the camera in most of these open-water situations, use the Ballast Weights and Front-view

ON THE ICE Your Aqua-Vu is an invaluable ice fishing tool which steps beyond mysterious flashes on a depthfinder to actually "see" the real picture. Take advantage of these key benefits: • View bottom structure and distinguishing features - Observe weedlines and weed characteristics, sand versus muck, big rocks versus small rocks, transitions from one bottom type to another. What a big help in precisely locating fishing holes or fish house! • Sharpen your fishing techniques - Watch your bait a

THE BATTERY AND CHARGER The Aqua-Vu Z model includes a 12-volt, 7-amp sealed and spillproof lead acid battery designed to fit securely in the carrying shuttle. The battery has a one-way relief valve to release excessive gas pressure in case of improper charging. (For battery installation, see No. 3 in the "Easy Setup" section towards the front of this manual.) Make sure the battery is fully charged before each use. Recharging after every viewing session is recommended. Expect 8 to 12 hours of co

GIMBAL MOUNT OPTION You may want to mount the Aqua-Vu monitor on the console (or in the electronics locker) of your boat, or somewhere other than on the portable carrying shuttle that comes with the unit. You can easily make the switch. You'll need a Gimbal Bracket that can be purchased from Aqua-Vu dealers or online at With a Gimbal Bracket in the desired place, loosen the two thumbscrews holding the monitor to the Aqua-Vu Z unit, remove the monitor, and (using the two thumbscre

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS How far can I see? Naturally, the clearer the water, the farther you can see. As a general rule, the camera can see twice as far as the human eye in water - meaning that if you can see 3 feet down you will be able to see approximately 6 feet in front of the camera. But this is just a rule of thumb, and all bodies of water will vary. For anglers studying bottom structure, 2 feet of visibility is sufficient for underwater viewing. When do I use the infrared lights? The i

Will my unit work in subfeezing conditions? Aqua-Vu systems are designed to operate at temperatures ranging from minus- 40 to 120 degrees F. Expect your battery life to decrease in cold conditions. What is the viewing angle of the camera? Your camera lens has a viewing angle of 92 degrees. At 4-1/2 feet in front of the camera you will be viewing an image approximately 6 feet wide. What is the resolution of my monitor screen? Your screen has 420 lines of resolution for crystal-clear viewing. Can
