Summary: Item arrived quickly; had to order an extension cable for the power from hummingbird in order to mount it on the boat. Top notch quality fish finder though, especially with the side imaging. Nice big screen, and great picture quality. Highly recommend product even though it is pricy.
Summary: I completely revamped my boat this year, no expense spared. I purchased this unit and it is worthless for fish finding. GPS is superb, but if there is a fish, it looks like a pin on the enormous screen. Lots of engine noise on this product, however, the engine was not running. I am sending it back.

Summary: I bought this unit in 2011 and have had nothing but positive experiences with it. Installation was easy and intuitive. Free software updates keep coming, fixing bugs I wasn't noticing, adding new features, giving me peace of mind. No Cons!
Summary: Used the 998ci SI all of last summer. No problems whatsoever with installation or use. Though I must admit, I'm going to need more water time to fully understand and appreciate the down imaging and side imaging. Chart plotting with Lakemaster and GPS have worked flawlessly.
Summary: UPDATE: When I first got the unit I located the transucer on the left side of the transom and everything worked fine EXCEPT the LEFT side imaging!!! I was about to send the unit in ( Humminbird service is outstanding ) when a new update came and after restoring the defaults and installing the new...
Summary: Installation was easy and straightforward. The navigation on screen is easily learned and used. I only have a few hours on this unit on my outboard. The only downside so far is that I see alot of prop wash on screen while underway.
Summary: have had a 797 since they came out. was going to get the 898 but caught a special on amazon for $1311.07. has the 50 channel gps module. for some reason i thought this had an internal gps, but it doesn't. so you have to mount the puck as well.
Summary: 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.
