Love at first cast. The fishfinder that syncs
with your smart phone or tablet.

From your first cast, there’s a lot to love about iBobber™.

You’ll love that it syncs via Bluetooth Smart® with your iPhone or iPad up to 100’ away, so you have a fishfinder that’s as mobile as you are.

iBobber uses sophisticated sonar to locate fish down to 135’, with 2 fish sizes, while the intuitive app enables you to GPS tag favorite hotspots, map waterbed contours, and measures water temperature.

And you’ll love that you can save details of all your fishing adventures with the Trip Log, and share it all on social media. You’ll also love the Lunar Calendar, Fish and Strike Alarm, LED Beacon, Weather sync, and stunning graphics. 

The love gets even deeper when you see how simple iBobber is to use. One cast and you’ll be hooked. Fish with it and you’ll have great stories to tell. A love story, too. Get the free iPhone app at http://bit.ly/iBobberiTunes.

Fishing is fun. Finding fish is more fun.

iBobber is for anyone who loves to find fish, and wants to catch more of them.
Just cast it and Ping! iBobber syncs via Bluetooth Smart and shows you where
the fish are.

iBobber is simple to use, easy to charge, and can help make fishing more fun
than it's ever been. Even if you have a boat-mounted fishfinder, iBobber can free
you from seeing fish only under your boat.  And finding more fish is always a lot
more fun than just fishing. Get the free iPhone app at http://bit.ly/iBobberiTunes.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the cost of iBobber and the App?
The app is free. The Suggested Retail Price of the iBobber is only $99.99 (U.S.). Please note that 2nd Day Delivery from ReelSonar.com must be ordered by 1pm EST. Download the App from the Apple store at http://bit.ly/iBobberiTunes (Android version is coming soon). iBobber comes complete with a USB charger, carrying pouch, and product information guide.
How does iBobber work?
Simple. Just attach a fishing line through the eyelet of the iBobber and cast where you want to see under the water, or where you want to begin to map the contour of the waterbed. The iBobber turns on upon contact with the water, and begins to "see" fish, depth, and water temperature. To map the contour of the waterbed contour down to 135ft, all you do is tap the app to the Waterbed Mapping screen, tap to begin, reel in the iBobber at a slow rate, tap to stop, and you've got a contour of the waterbed. Couldn't be easier. And even better, the iBobber can be used from a boat, kayak, pier, or from shore.
Will iBobber® work with every smart phone and tablet?
Not yet. Currently iBobber works with smartphones and tablets using Bluetooth® Smart (Bluetooth Low Energy) that support iOS 6.0 and 7.0 (Apple) operating systems. Here's a list: iPhone 4S, iPhone 5 series, iPad 3 & 4, Mini, Air. Soon we'll support phones and tablets that run Android 4.3/use Bluetooth Smart v4.0. At this time we will not be supporting the Windows phone or Blackberry. 
What is Bluetooth® Smart, and why do we use it?
We're the only fishfinder to use Bluetooth Smart® (Bluetooth Low Energy v4.0). Bluetooth Smart is very clever technology that does a really good job of keeping devices continually paired. Unlike wi-fi, Bluetooth Smart provides a secure connection without sucking the life out of your smart device battery (talk on your cell phone for an hour over wi-fi, two if you're lucky, then check your battery). A wi-fi link is designed to always be up, and hopefully, connected (and as connected, draining your smart device battery). If the wi-fi link goes down, it needs to be re-established and it's up to the smart device to do that... searching to make a connection... draining your smart device battery - and - between connections - data is lost. Bluetooth Smart is designed for locations where signals drop or fade. Bluetooth Smart enables an ultra-low power implementation of Bluetooth technology, maintains a strong, low energy connection with a smart device, and when needed, the unit powers up, negotiates a data link (highway), sends its data, then shuts down the data link. This strong, low energy connection, and on/off data highway when needed, is what makes Bluetooth Smart the ideal solution for products that will benefit from long battery life, such as the iBobber. 
Will the iBobber app get updates?
Yes. As we add even more functionality, we'll make updates available. As a matter-of-fact, we're already into our 3rd release. In addition, we are developing other products to help make your fishing the best it can be. Check back soon to see them.
Is iBobber waterproof?
Yes.  The iBobber case is sealed so water won't get in. And it has an IP67 protection rating. Wondering what IP67 stands for? Here's the skinny:

In simple terms, you don't want ingress of dust or water into the iBobber case. You want protection for the iBobber, and ultimately, protection for your fun day of fishing.

IP = ingress protection.
6 is the best rating against solid particles, which means that iBobber is dust tight, protecting against dust like a superhero. Mistakingly dredge iBobber in that bowl of flour meant for your fish-fry, and the flour won't get in.

7 is the second best rating against water, which means iBobber is suitable for submersion. That's pretty darn waterproof. So you'll have no worries as iBobber floats along finding fish for you, maybe helping make that day of fishing the best day ever.
Can I use iBobber for ice fishing?
Yes. Nice thing about using iBobber, if you need to leave your ice shanty for any reason, you can take your smart device with you and keep tabs on the fish, and/or see if you've got a strike.
Who should use iBobber?
Anyone who likes to find and catch fish, and wants to find and catch more of them.
What is the cost of the iBobber?
Suggested Retail Price is only $99.99 (U.S.). Please note that 2nd Day Delivery from ReelSonar.com must be ordered by 1pm EST.

Does iBobber have a Warranty?
Of course. iBobber has a 1-year Limited Warranty that covers your purchase / return for up
to one year if the iBobber is defective. You would be responsible for shipping the iBobber
back to us with our Return Authorization, and once we make sure it hasn't been externally

As for our return policy... if

iBobber with our Return Authorization within 30 days of purchase. The iBobber and all its

About

The concept for iBobber began in the Spring of 2012 with a very simple question that Alex, our CEO, asked of himself when he was trying to catch bass with his father-in-law. Fishing from the back of the boat, Alex looked longingly at Jim's boat-mounted fish finder that was mounted too far forward to see the screen clearly. And Alex wondered, "why can't I have a fishfinder connected to my iPhone, then I can see it anywhere I'm on the boat? Or from shore, or a pier, or a kayak, or from a friend's boat?!" And so iBobber was born.

As you get to know us, you'll find that ReelSonar is a company not only created by guys who love to fish, but that we're dedicated to helping all anglers, amateur to professional, young to old, bait lovers and lure aficionados, find more fish so they can catch more fish.

Bottom line— we love fishing and want to do everything we can to make fishing the most fun it can be for everyone. Get your own iBobber at one of our Retailers, and get the free iPhone app at http://bit.ly/iBobberiTunes.
