New Direction Bait Boat 2

New Direction Bait Boat 2

The Bait Boat 2 is a Smart Bait Boat® that offers real-time GPS tracking through a free Android and iOS app. The boat is designed to be modular, allowing users to purchase the basic boat and add extra features and hardware as needed. The first available upgrade is the autopilot, which enables the boat to navigate autonomously to user-defined points. The autopilot can be purchased for £199 through the app, and is tied to the boat ID, so it remains with the boat even if it is lent to a friend.

The app offers a range of features, including the ability to see the boat on a map and navigate to a desired spot. The app also includes three different map views, a tool for measuring distances, and the ability to save an unlimited number of spots for future use. Additionally, the app includes Spot Cloud, which ensures that saved spots are never lost. Most functions, including autopilot, can be accessed through the app, though the remote control is also available for manual control.

The remote control is designed for one-handed use and allows for up to 4 separate spots and a home point to be saved. This frees up a hand for tasks such as guiding a fishing line. Overall, the Bait Boat 2 offers a range of features and upgrades for a customizable and efficient fishing experience.

The Bait Boat 2 offers an optional deeper® Smart Sonar that can be paired with the Android and iOS app to provide high-resolution target separation of up to 1 cm, making it easier to locate spots. With the sonar, anglers can even see boilies and lead sinking on the sonar image. It also allows users to create depth maps and records trips that can be watched later. The deeper® Smart Sonar offers three selectable sonar levels of 7°, 16°, and 47°. For those who already have a deeper, they can have it installed or attach it to the boat with a mobile bracket. The deeper has an external antenna that increases reception, enabling ranges of at least 150 meters.

The Bait Boat 2 also offers a range extender as an optional add-on that allows anglers to reach over 250 meters. The range extender comes in a waterproof, super-solid box that stabilizes Wi-Fi connections over longer distances. The box also provides space for antennas and a smartphone/tablet holder. It is suitable for fish finders like the Deeper, Vexilar, and others. The power bank is used for operation and can be fixed in the box.
