Summary: My old FF had some problems, its fixed now. But in the spur of the FF-less moment, I pulled the trigger on a Humminbird 345C. I wasn't expecting much. I just wanted a replacement. How different can they be given the the 300 series is lower in the hierarchy vs my older 500 series 565.
Summary: The Hummingbird 385CI Combo is a great value for the money. It replaced my sonar only unit and the GPS features were most welcome. It performs well and is relatively easy to use. Instructions for installation could stand some clarification.
Summary: I installed this in an ocean prowler 15 angler and have really enjoyed it. Almost everything you need to install the unit is included in the box (supplied a few connectors) and it is very well thought out. It took about an hour to install everything and I tested it the next day.
Summary: Exactly as described, other positive reviews proved to be accurate. I used it in the ocean on a 12' aluminum row boat and a 21' fiberglass motor boat. Worked great on both at slow speeds, caught lots of fish with my sons.
Summary: Wonderful....Still have to figure out all the little things this unit does, but as of now, it shows the bottom great (even at 40 mph) and the GPS is fantastic. Would recommend this unit to anybody.
Summary: It was this unit or a side scanner sonar without GPS, I so made the right choice. I have an 18 foot four winns freedom and mounted this over the cup holder on the drivers side. I trailer my boat all over from lake to lake here in Michigan so having the GPS (built in) with a waypoint marking to find...
Summary: This Fishfinder provides far far more detail than B&W models. Not only does it clearly define fish and baitfish, but bottom structure, bottom growth, suspeded vegetation and thermoclines. Would have give 5 stars except the power consumption is high, a fully charged battery is good for 2 trips.
Summary: Humminbird makes a great product. If you are hesitating on whether or not to spring for the extra cash for the color version, I would. Not to say I have a horrible black and white screen, but I will definitely buy a gps/fish finder with color when it comes time to get a new one.
