Humminbird FishFinder with Side and Down Imaging

I purchased the Humminbird 998C Si Bundle for my husband's birthday. He has been mentioning for some time how he would love to have one but can not see paying almost $2000 for one. He owns three other Humminbird Fish Finders that were mounted to our 21 foot bass boat. This unit has replaced everything and anything he uses for finding fish and GPS signals.

It was easy to install. He mounted it on the dash with the RAM Mounting Systems RAM-D-111U-C heavy duty RAM Universal Marine Electronic Mount. It sits securely in place with no worries of it taking a plunge into the waters. The Navigation Bundle is a must! It includes all four regions of the US as well as the waters near Canada. Being that it is the "Si" model, the unit is upgradeable and expandable to fit all your needs.

It comes with side sonar as well as down imaging. It's amazing how clear the images are. Use your side image out to 240ft on each side of the boat to find structure on the bottom. Even in three foot of water the side image is clear out past 100 feet. If you find something off to the side of the boat and want to check it out, you simply use the cursor to mark the spot as a waypoint. Then you use the navigation to go back over it to see it on the down scan. You can select an object and zoom in for a closer look. The unit has 2 SD cards slots to store pictures and video recordings of the images. Mark your waypoints with the touch of a button. There is a variety of split screen options. The LCD display is large and the resolution is vivid and clear even in sun light. The GPS is very fast to link up to satellite signal unlike our Garmin hand held.

One suggestion - keep your fingers off the screen. My husband can't stop pointing things out on the screen and leaving finger prints. To avoid smudges and dirtying the LCD screen, we purchased the ScreenGuardZ HD Anti-Glare Durable Screen Protector for Apple iPad and cut it down to size to fit the LCD screen.

If you are looking for a fishfinder that gives you depth, temperature, track and chart plotting, GPS speed, up to 3,000 waypoints, side and down sonar imaging, network capabilities and overall an awesome way to find fish holding structures - then the humminbird 998c SI is for you.
