Humminbird 798c and 798ci SI Deals

humminbird-798c-798ci-SI-fishfinder-gps-comboI was doing some price lookups on the Humminbird 798c and 798ci SI combos and noticed a few deals that I wanted to highlight. These are great units and the normal street price seems to be $999.99. That’s the price at several of the internet retailers I checked, but I also found some places offering much lower prices. Also remember that internet sites will not charge you sales-tax unless that company has a physical location in your state. Sites like Amazon.com, ConsumersMarine.com and TheNerds.net don’t have stores in many states, so it’s likely that you won’t pay sales-tax.

What’s the difference between the Humminbird 798c and the 798ci? The only real difference between the two units is that the 798c has an external GPS antenna while the 798ci comes with an internal GPS receiver.

Both of these 798 units offer exceptional value for the money. You can get battle-tested Humminbird SI side-scan technology for less than $1000. Nothing else is needed. Just install and go. These are excellent entry-level side imaging sonar GPS combos.

New for 2010: These user-friendly side imaging (SI) fish finders are updated for 2010 with new software for Down Imaging (DI), SwitchFire, new color palettes and mapping/navigation features (plus waypoint management).

See this pages for more information on SwitchFire, color palettes, mapping/navigation or this page for more information on Down-Imaging.
