Which Humminbird Should I Buy?

Question

MNBIGBEAR

I'm looking at buying a new Humminbird sonar/GPS combo and I am just wondering what is the best one for my money. I like the looks of the 900 series but I'm not sure if the side imaging or the 3-D sonar are worth the extra bucks or if I should go with the regualar 2-D sonar. You guys have any suggestions or comments?

Hookmaster

I bought the 737 last year that has sonar only and is a color unit. I tested the color versus black and white and the color is much better. It blows Lowrance away as far as target separation. I could see the separation between two quarter ounce jigs that were 3 inches apart in 30 feet of water. That's what 640 vertical pixels will do. I also got the side view transducer that looks out to each side but doesn't give the 3D image like the side imaging units do. There's a big difference in $ when going up to the side imaging. The gps combos use Magellan gps so you couldn't use Lakemaster chips but I think, but am not sure, that there are contour software available for them. Maybe Navionics.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, this may be my last weekend on the ice South of Hwy 210 . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
