The Humminbird 386ci DI Combo is one of the cheapest units with Down Imaging available at the moment. Although it’s a small unit, it does provide quite an assortment of features. It’s equipped with a LED backlight, brilliant color screen, 256 TFT, 3.5-inch, 320×240 pixel resolution, with a quick-disconnect, in-dash, mounting system for the head unit.
Has Dual Beam Plus sonar, with a coverage of 200 kHz / 25° or 455 kHz / 16° in SwitchFire, and 455 kHz / 75° or 800 kHz / 45° in Down Imaging, slightly different from its predecessor, the 385ci DI Combo. The power output of the 386ci DI Combo is 500 Watts (RMS) / 4000 Watts (PTP), making this unit viable for depths up to 600 feet, in SwitchFire mode, or 350 feet in Down Imaging mode.
Among the features useful for finding fish can also be enumerated the temperature indicator, the Selective Fish ID+ option which replaces the normal view, giving each fish an icon indicating its depth, and depth measuring function.
This unit can also be used as a navigational tool. It has Precision GPS, trackplotting and chartplotting properties. It can store up to 2,500 waypoints, 50 tracks (20,000 pts. each), and 50 routes. It comes with the built in UniMap package, which covers the U.S. in-land lakes and rivers, as well as the continental U.S. coastline. It features an SD card slot, and can be upgraded with a Navionics Gold, LakeMaster or HotMaps SD card.
Has one year warranty, like all the other fish finders from Humminbird.
