Anytime I can help - ya just holler Paul!
The 700's won't be avail. for a few more weeks yet - you can get ahold of Greg Walters @ humminbird ( [email protected] )if ya have specific questions,

If ya get one of these & "it doesn't work out" , I'd be glad to take it off your hands & beta-test it along side my LMS332c!!!
Best of luck W/ your choice...
and DON'T forget... you might accidentally use that 3D for a wheel chock & fergitz to pull it out when ya roll the truck FWD....
;)
LOL!!!
RAS
:D

I want to play with one sooo badly. I can see it now, that unit picking up a wolf pack of muskies in that resoultion. I would be too interested in watching them to cast.

I've had my eye on this unit for a couple months now. Actually the 981C as I already have GPS. The ability to add a handheld if the fixed unit goes down is nice. That side scan would really give a lot of help in reading the rivers.

well I couldn't resist. I bought the 981 model. I'm going to see how it works for scouting the rivers for chromers. I figure I can pretty much cover the width of a river with this sucker. I should be able to post results of it's effectiveness by maybe the end of Jan.

This unit rocks!!! I took my lil boat out today and played around with the graph a bit. I was really impressed with it's capabilities. If you can spare the change for this unit I would get one. If you can't.... Lie to her and tell her you needed new tires and a water pump.:evil: :lol: :lol: I posted the results of this unit in a thread in GPS/electronics.
