Average price: over $300
In keeping with tradition, Humminbird has created a top of the line value model with the 385ci combination fishfinder. It is like some of the cheaper units in this series, but it has a nice color display.
This display has 256 possible colors and is three and 1/2 inches across. This gives it a very standard resolution of 320 by 240 pixels. Also, like all the other units in this series, this model has a maximum transducer output of 2400 Watts.
The real benefit of this model is that you can use it’s GPS functions colorized display. For the $400 retail price we are happy with the performance. While other GPS’s can be had for less money, very few of them are capable of being taken out on the water. Also, with an industry leading transducer performance, other manufacturers really cannot compete.
We like the small size of this unit because it is not even 2 inches deep. This allows you to easily mount it on your boat’s transom.
