This is it. This is the top of the line that Humminbird makes. The 1198c SI combination fishfinder it’s probably one of the greatest pieces of gear engineering we’ve seen.
For starters there is a whopping 10.4 inch screen. The colors are done in a very crisp display because it uses TFT technology. There’s plenty of room for navigation and sounding with its generous 600 by 800 pixels of display.
Out of the box it can see 1500 feet through water. With an optional deep water upgrade there is a low frequency transducer that can double this to allow you to see 3000 feet. It works amazingly well.
Regardless of what transducer use the selling point for this device is the amazingly clear and crisp side imaging technology. Humminbird is a real master of this and it shows. You’ll be able to see a full 180 degrees around your boat.
You’ve never seen such an interesting picture underwater as that of a real time sonar display covering 250 feet all around your boat. And to make it even better, it’s all displayed on this giant screen.
So if you’re looking for the best of the best the 1198c SI fishfinder by Humminbird is it.
