Avoid Humminbird fishfinders!

Sandy69, Amazon

  • Summary: Purchased this unit two years ago. We fish leaded Jigs for salmon. In the last 20 years, I've never owned an even cheap fishfinder that we could not see our jigs on the screen.

lemon or just bad luck?

  • Summary: My 898csi hd 7 works well under 8 knots. Any faster and is useless. Have replaced transducer after drilling several positions in the stern. Have now been asked to send the whole head unit back after 9 months of being treated like its my fault. So Ill be without for 4 weeks while it gets tested.

No side imaging

Erik, Amazon

  • Summary: Most of the reviews for this are about the unit with side imaging. This model does not have side imaging, it is very misleading. Be careful what you buy. The 858c is good at what it does don't confuse with the si model.

Do not buy this if you plan on using in a location with exposure to daylight!

Amy Anderson, Amazon

  • Summary: I discovered to late that the backlight is inadequate. The CCFL backlighting this model features is worthless in daylight,that becomes a major factor when using the unit for DI/SI imaging.

Great fish finder

browni1983, Amazon

  • Summary: This unit is absolutely the best..The side imaging is so informative, the 2d sonar helps you understand what you are seeing with the other features... Ive owned lowrance and Garmin and there is nothing like the birds. I added the weather sense to my unit.

Pure disappointment

Frostbite, Amazon
30 May 2012
  • Summary: I'm completely disappointed in the 858C. I've been trying to get it to work for over a month now, but it won't read depths deeper than 250-260 feet, even though this thing is supposed to work up to 1500 feet deep. Many calls to the support section at Humminbird have not resolved the problem.
