I have a HB 597 on my toon, but am thinking about side scanning & down looking. I have around $700 to spend. Any suggestions?

I prefer Humminbird but that is me. I would say go look at them all and get the one that best suites your needs.

Might try the Humminbird website( factory outlet) I found the prices cheaper there than local stores.

I got the 899ci HD SI combo , but there is one for any budget and need.

For fishing these days I'd rather have an old boat and new electronics!

I had planned to buy a 698, but it seems the screen is smaller than my 597. That bothers me a little.

I was in the video/TV production business and I always know that any electronic thingamajig you buy will be outdated by the time you get it home so I might wait to see what comes out in 2015.
