New for 2012, The Hummingbird 345c DI Fish Finder has been designed with the serious angler in mind. It features a brilliant 3.5”, 320 x 240 pixel color screen display with superior LED backlighting for enhanced visibility in bright sunlight. It also allows you to customize the background and display colors so that they suit your preferences. The Hummingbird 345c DI Sonar also has split-screen zoom capability, which lets you zero in on objects of interest beneath the surface with enhanced clarity and resolution. Also included is 3-D Imaging, Custom View and digital readout modes that allow you to automate viewer adjustment.

Patented DualBeam Plus
The Hummingbird 345c DI Sonar Fish Finder is unique because it incorporates two different sonar technologies into one unit. It comes with the standard direct imaging that scans at depths of up to 600 feet. More important is its exclusive DualBeam Plus technology, which emits 15 and 25 degree lateral beams for sharper images on either side at ranges of up to 250 feet. In addition, its unique SwitchFire sonar technology gives you the choice of two distinct modes of operation. Max Mode returns a real time signal for the most accurate picture, while Clear Mode filters the image to show only fish or other objects.

Additional Specifications
Not only does the Hummingbird 345c DI have instant updates, but it also includes split-screen bottom locking and freeze frame capability. Items below the water can be scanned and marked for future reference if you decide to come back later using these features. Other nice touches include the water temperature indicator and fish ID features that can assist you in identifying schools of fish that appear below. All of these features are contained within a 5.25″ x 7.4″ x 4″ package that outputs 4000 watts peak to peak to extend your battery life once you hit the water.

Customer Reviews
The Hummingbird 345c DI Sonar Fish Finder provides all of the sonar capabilities of its more expensive cousins, and adds built-in GPS for good measure. A quick survey of Amazon reviews for this model indicates that buyers are very satisfied with their choice. Many reviewers commented that it provides superior image detail compared to the old black and white units they owned previously. One particular user noted that the unit provides greater sensitivity than his more expensive Hummingbird Fish Finder. Overall, the majority of reviewers gave this unit a big thumbs up.

Closing Thoughts
If you’re the type of person who lives to fish, you’re no doubt aware that you can spend thousands on sonar units to pursue that trophy catch. If you’re a typical angler who just wants to spend a relaxing day on the lake without having to spend a fortune on hardware, the Hummingbird 345c DI Sonar Fish Finder is the sonar unit for you. It delivers the same performance as far more expensive units at a fraction of the cost, saving you hundreds in the process.

If you’ve been waiting for a good Humminbird to come out in 2012, and that won’t break the bank, this is a good unit for you.
