The Hummingbird Fish Finder 798ci HD SI Combo is clearly the best of the 700 Humminbird series. Although it’s equipped only with a medium size screen, it basically has most of the features that the best Hummingbird Depth Finders have.
It’s endowed with a 5-inch 265 color TFT display, with a resolution of 640 x 640 pixels. Has LED backlight which permits a pretty nice readability even on a bright, sunny day, or during night.
When it comes to its sonar capabilities, the Hummingbird Fish Finder 798ci HD SI Combo has the DualBeam Plus/SwitchFire technology just as its bigger brothers in the 800, 900 and 1100 series. This feature will provide you with accurate returns even in 1500ft deep waters. Comes with both Side Imaging and Down Imaging, so using this fishing gadget you will benefit from clear, photo-like snapshots of the bottom of the lake, down to 100ft depth.
Its GPS capabilities include a 50 Channel internal GPS, trackplotting and chartplotting. It’s compatible with Navionics and LakeMaster charts, and has the built-in ContourXD mapping, providing you with a solid map package of over 3000 U.S. lake maps.
Its memory card can store up to 3000 waypoints, 50 routes and 50 tracks. Also, the Hummingbird Fish Finder 798ci HD SI Combo has Ethernet connection capabilities, allowing you to share sonar, views, waypoints, routes and more.
All in all this, due to its capabilities/price ratio, the Hummingbird Fish Finder 798ci HD SI Combo is a great fishing tool to have as a recreational angler or boater, or even if you’re aiming for professional fishing. You will basically get all the benefits of a 1100 Humminbird, but on a smaller screen, and with a little less depth penetration on its Side Imaging and Down Imaging.
