BECOME AN UNDERWATER EXPLORER Congratulations! Your new Aqua-Vu MAV underwater viewing system allows you become an aquatic explorer without getting wet! You now hold in your possession perhaps the most profound piece of fish- ing technology ever devised. While a depth-finder provides depth and a “representation” of the terrain below the boat, MAV actually shows you a fish-eye view of the underwater world—like scuba diving without the limitations of an oxygen tank, depth concerns, or even wor

MOUNTING TIPS When selecting mounting positions for the MAV Monitor, Power Spool and Footpad, carefully consider your personal fishing preferences. Are you a back-trolling walleye angler? A panfisherman? A tourna- ment bass angler? Muskie nut? Saltwater flats fisherman? Do you typically fish from your boat’s front casting deck? Or do you prefer to sit and fish from the boat’s console. Other logical MAV placement considerations include mounting space at the bow versus the console, and wid

Mounting continued Bass Boats: For any angler who spends the majority of the time fishing from the bow of the boat, we recommend mounting the MAV Monitor, Footpad and 2 PowerSpool in the front (bow). This lets you easily view the MAV monitor 1 while also running the trolling motor and casting. The footpad is posi- 3 tioned near the trolling motor foot control (if applicable)-- in a front deck BASS BASS location that allows for quick foot access. In this case, the PowerSpool can either be moun

Installing your MAV Before starting the mounting process (drilling holes, etc.), map out the precise location of each compo- nent, as well as how cables will be run from plug to plug. Set up each component (Monitor, PowerSpool, Footpad) temporarily in its prospective location to assure that it will be fully functional and accessible, without interfering with adjacent items such as trolling motors, sonar, rod holders, etc. Once you’ve determined that each component will be fully functional and

Installing your MAV continued (4) Connecting to Battery: MAV is powered by your boat’s 12-volt battery system. NOTE: The power cable is protected with a 12-volt 15-amp circuit breaker to guard against unit failure should a short occur in your 12-volt system. In most cases, we recommend attaching the MAV power cable direct- ly to the boat’s main starting battery, which is constantly recharged through the alternator. In the case of smaller outboard motors (less than 50 HP), it may be advisabl

MAV Features continued Depth-Tech - This on-screen feature displays depth of the MAV camera.

MAV VIEWING TIPS Begin underwater viewing by lowering the MAV camera to within 1 to 2 feet of the bot- tom. The bottom provides a solid point of reference that helps you perceive sizes of fish and objects below. The MAV camera is set up to view horizontally, so you can see bottom and fish all around your position. Typically, anglers slowly move along, eyes glued to the monitor’s ever-changing picture of the underwater terrain. You can also view vertically —studying bottom and fish straight b

VIEWING TIPS — WHILE FISHING Your Aqua-Vu MAV is an invaluable fishing tool — a giant leap beyond mysterious flashes and unidenti- fied “fish” on a depthfinder. Aqua-Vu enables you to actually “see” the real picture! Fish and view simultaneously. The MAV is the first ever hands-free viewing system. Note these huge Aqua-Vu MAV advantages: • View bottom structure and distinguishing features. Observe weedlines and weed characteristics, sand versus muck, big rocks versus small rocks, and transi

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 in water as the human eye. Generally, if you can see 3 feet down in the water, you will be able to see approximately 6 feet in front of the camera. However, water bodies vary in water clarity and other characteristics. For studying underwater structure, 2 feet of visibility is sufficient for viewing, though in very clear water, it is possib

Can I connect my Aqua-Vu to a larger monitor or to a hand-held camcorder? Yes. You can attach a separate monitor or video recording system to your MAV PowerSpool via the video out socket. Is Aqua-Vu legal? To our knowledge there are no restrictions that regulate the use of Aqua-Vu underwater viewing sys- tems. Aqua-Vu is an approved pre-fishing tool in B.A.S.S. and P.W.T. events, and for other tournament trails across the country. TROUBLE-SHOOTING NOTHING HAPPENS (POWERSPOOL WILL NOT OPERA
