These extremely popular and user friendly side imaging (SI) fish finder GPS combos are updated this year with new software features to enable Down Imaging (DI), SwitchFire controls, new color palettes and new mapping features and waypoint management. The Humminbird 798c and 798ci are excellent entry-level side imaging sonar GPS combos that can be purchased for less than $1,000. The 798ci unit has an internal GPS antenna while the 798c comes with an external GPS receiver.

To me, both of these 798 units offer unbelievable value for the money. You get the groundbreaking Humminbird SI side-scan sonar and the super-fast GPS all in one unit. There’s nothing else to buy. A complete side imaging fishing system for less than $1,000. And these things are road tested and real-world proven. Truly Awesome!
