What is ANGLR?
ANGLR let’s you track your fishing with GPS to capture the locations, conditions, tackle, and most memorable fishing moments. The optional ANGLR Tracker uses advanced sensor technology and to precisely record casts and catches in the app for you or pair ANGLR Bullseye for seamless waypoint marking, while you just focus on catching the big one. ANGLR establishes a baseline of your performance and captures the variables behind each of your catches to help you break down your water in the future. Review more than 100 different fishing analyses of your data in the ANGLR Web Application for a holistic view of your most successful moments.
What types of fishermen use ANGLR? Does it work for fly-fishing?
We strive to provide the most meaningful insights for most fresh and saltwater fishermen including catch locations, waypoints (pins), weather conditions, water conditions, moon phase, tide, and tackle usage.
Our initial Tracker algorithms are designed for cast and catch detection while mounted to most conventional or fly fishing rods. We believe consistency and accuracy are paramount for professional use and are constantly improving the accuracy of our detection models.
Will my fishing data be shared?
Your data is your data and will be kept private unless you choose to share trip details or catch details. As fisherman, your privacy is of utmost importance to us.
Can I request a new feature for an update?
Yes, we take feedback from our users very seriously. We also enjoy fishing stories if you feel like sharing. Please contact us.
What is the ANGLR Bullseye?
ANGLR Bullseye is the easiest and fastest way to mark waypoints and catches without ever pulling out your phone or tapping around on a graph. Wear, stick, or hang this small, simple, and convenient button anywhere. Click Bullseye and automatically record catch locations, editable way points, conditions and more. At the end of the day you’ll have all the information in as little or as much detail as you need.
How does the ANGLR Bullseye work?
ANGLR Bullseye connects to the ANGLR App via Bluetooth. Once connected to the ANGLR App you can record catch locations and waypoints without using your phone. Simply press the Bullseye once to record a catch or twice for a waypoint. The ANGLR App with receive these commands from Bullseye and store the coordinates, date, time, environmental conditions, and more.
Does the ANGLR Bullseye need to be charged?
No, the ANGLR Bullseye has up to a 2 year battery live depending on usage. If you are having battery issues please contact us.
Can I pair multiple Bullseyes to the ANGLR App at once?
Yes, you can pair up to 10 Bullseyes to the ANGLR App at once.
I can not get the Bullseye to connect to my ANGLR App.
If you are having problems connecting the Bullseye to the App press and hold the Bullseye button for 8 seconds. The button will automatically reset and begin to look for the ANGLR App through the Connected Device screens within the ANGLR App.
What is the ANGLR Tracker?
The Tracker uses proprietary sensor technology and algorithms to precisely record casting and catching mechanics directly from your fishing rod. Paired with the ANGLR App, Tracker auto-logs casts and catches during your trip so you have more time to focus on catching fish.
How does it know if I missed a fish?
Tracker marks catch locations where fish are detected on hook. Confirm landed catches with a single button press.
Is Tracker accurate?
Tracker algorithms are designed for cast and catch detection while mounted to most conventional or fly fishing rods. We built Tracker using the same sensor technology used in Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs), which are found in everything from unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to satellites, to the Mars lander. These units work by combining the results from an array of sensors (accelerometers, gyroscopes, and magnetometers) to precisely determine rotational attributes like pitch, roll, and yaw using a technique called sensor fusion. Throughout the development of ANGLR we have working with more than 300 fishermen to test and validate Tracker data. These results feed into our proprietary detection model to compute metrics. We believe consistency and accuracy are paramount for professional use and are always improving the accuracy of our detection models as more data is captured. Free Firmware updates are provided for your ANGLR Tracker regularly with improving detection capabilities.
How do I ensure my data is accurate? (Best Practices)
- Secure Mount: Tracker is full of sensitive sensor tech, which means it must be securely mounted and correctly oriented with the button facing up. Upside down or loose ANGLR mounts can result in wonky data.
- Update: We’re constantly making improvements, so update your app and make sure your Tracker is running the latest firmware.
How do I turn on and off my Tracker?
To wake up your Tracker, press the button once to place into pairing mode. Tracker will turn off once you disconnect from the mobile app or once taken out of Bluetooth range from your smartphone.
I’m pressing the button on my Tracker and not getting any response?
It’s important that you fully charge your Tracker for 4-5 hours before use. If your Tracker is fully charged and still unresponsive, simply reset the device with the charging dock. Plug the charging dock into an active USB port and slide the Tracker through the dock in reverse (rotate Tracker 180 degrees). Once it slides completely through backwards, the LED indicator will flash blue (or red if low battery) showing a successful reset. If you’re still experiencing no response, please contact us.
Is it heavy? I paid a lot of money for a light rod!
The Tracker is lightweight, equal to the weight of 4 paper clips and will not affect the sensitivity or balance of your rod.
Can Tracker be used with any fishing rod?
Tracker is designed to provide insights that are meaningful to most freshwater and saltwater fishermen. 3 different sizes of rubber mount rings are included with every purchase for a secure fit with any light, medium, or heavy rod.
Can Tracker be used with multiple fishing rods?
The Tracker sensor is easily swapped between your rods with multiple mounts. Tracker includes two rod mounts free with every purchase. Additional mounts are available here.
How do I upload my trips and see Tracker metrics?
Tracker sends data to the ANGLR App in real time via Bluetooth while fishing. Expect up to a 10 second delay in reporting detection’s. All trip data is automatically uploaded to your account from your smartphone and available in the FREE app or with active subscription at my.anglr.tech.
Is Tracker waterproof? Does it float?
We designed the Tracker to the IP7 Standard – which means it’s good under 1m of water for 30 minutes. Tracker also floats.
Is the Tracker durable?
Tracker sensor and mount materials were designed to tolerate the elements including sunlight, salt water, gases, oils, rod lockers, and truck beds.
How do I delete Trips?
Delete a trip by swiping left or tapping & holding from your trip list in Profile on the ANGLR App.
Can I use the Tracker without a smartphone?
