Humminbird SI Update


Ray's picture

By Ray - Posted on 26 February 2009

Ok I loaded and tried the humminbird SI update 4.510. Big improvement to the update speed seemed to me. Which made it easier to navigate back to a marked point. Also the SI image is much more clear. You can now adjust contrast on the SI also. There are several other items I did not try but if you have not already get this update.

I just loaded 4.5 on my 997 and 787. The 787 is messed up now. It has sporatic depth and a blue solid line at 2-4 ft deep. It shows very little structure and jumps up and down on screen. Is this the update or did my transducer go bad?

Hey DTG. Restore factory defaults and then look at it again. This is what Humminbird told me to do after I loaded mine. Mine works great now.

Ive tried it numerous times. Richard Williams loaded his factory update card on them and still no luck with the 787. I took a short video on my cell phone to show somebody to see of they can tell me what gthe problem might be.

Hey guys im new to this hummingbird unit. Is it the 797 ? Have a couple of questions about it. Can you mount it on your trolling motor (will the rotation of the motor mess your image location up)? How does it work in 4 to 8 feet of water? Big Question, What is the price of the unit I need and all the extras I will need and where is the best place to get one? I dont know if i fish enough to justify all the money, just trying to get awnsers before I turn loose of all that cash.

797c2 si or the 798c1 si Less than $100 difference Which would you GET?

Yea tm thing is out of question.Looks like back of boat, find structure,mark it and then move up front. Wanted to do it upfront but cant see how unless I build something to hold transducer up there. Then it will be in way when putting boat on and off trailer and in the boat.Fish finder up front died and was trying to get by with just the 798 but looks like may have to get 2, anybody got any extra cash.

I dont think you want to mount it to your trollin motor. Mount it to your boat. When you turn your tm its gonna distort the picture because of so much movement.

I would buy the 798 , because it would have the lastest software,+ you will get the double sd card holder which will let you take pictures and use a navionics card . jsut my 02$
