  • Excellent sensitivity and love the dual frequency transducer.
  • I love this fishfinder, it's sensitivity is amazing.
  • Also the dual beam allows you to see the other holes around you (If you want).
  • This unit is wonderful to use on the ice. It sees the fish and the lure very distinctly.
  • So, its easy to use, the display is great, zoom is awesome, dual beam cone is very handy.
Humminbird ICE-55 Ice Fishing Flasher
  • Uses different sonar frequency from other brands so no interference.
  • This flasher will still see your lure, mark weeds, soft vs hard bottom.
  • The sonar capabilities were adequate for my uses. I was able to separate fish and lure and also determine bottom types.
  • Great unit, it's all an ice fisherman needs. Tracks the smallest jigs to the deepest I fished.
  • The zoom, sensitivity, beam width, battery and noise features couldn't get much easier to use. Very pleased.

What customers say about "Interface"
Humminbird ICE-45 Three Color Flasher with LCD
  • Digital readouts make it extremely easy to use and read under various conditions.
  • Nice big bright display, backlight very useful in low light to pitch black conditions.
  • the digital display clearly shows fish on the monitor along with your hook or minnow.
  • I like the liquid crystal display for depth and the backlighting is good in dark conditions.
  • The screen seems way bigger and easier to read than many of the other more longstanding and expensive brands.
Humminbird ICE-55 Ice Fishing Flasher
  • I like the bigger screen. Over all good target separation and does what it is supposed to.
  • I chose the Ice-55 because I thought it had more options than the others. I like the liquid crystal display for depth. I really haven't used the 6 colors as three works just fine.
  • Overall, I am more than satisfied with my purchase. I like the larger display and backlight options.
  • The adjust zoom is amazing and the LED screen can be seen from any angle.

  • Very easy to use zoom and like that it can be used anywhere in the water column.
  • The zoom feature was excellent and I was almost playing with the fish as I would have them move up and down the screen after my minnow.
  • The adjust zoom is amazing for catching those finicky Crappies.
  • Works great ! Zoom feature works well.
  • I really like the adjustable zoom feature instead of just have the bottom zoom like most other fish finders at this price range.

  • Carrying case is handy: unzips on both side to easily take out transducer or battery.
  • The case is a nice thing to have and the handle on top makes it easy to carry.
