Hummingbird 997 or 797

3 posts in this topic

I am looking at buying a new GPS/sonar. Anyone have good or bad to say about these units that have used them???

I found a good deal on a 797 late last fall. I got it mounted on the boat the same day I winterized it.

Never got to try it out, but others said it was a good and useful toy. Some said the 997 was better with the larger screen but the double cost was prohibitive, but no other negatives that i can remember.

I have both units on my boat and they both seem to work the same. The screen on the 997 is much eaiser to view because of its larger size. I primarly only use the graph feature on the 797 and run the SI and GPS on the larger unit. I have been very happy with both. Good Fishing!!

      Had a good day with some good friends today.  Was nice to have a MANY fish day for a change this season.  The crappies weren't the biggest but we sorted through for a decent fry.  The pikers were a nice addition for the last weekend of the season.  We fished from 8 to 22 feet with a vast mix of presentations.   The oddest thing was the start to the day when this button buck slammed into the deck railing and broke its neck while we were getting ready to go out.  We called in for the permit and enjoyed some fresh blackstrap with the fresh fish for dinner.

      That sucks when you lose gear. Tom way to go trying to find the owner of  the lures.
