Humminbird 997c GPS

Marine electronics house Humminbird has just launched the 997c SI Combo GPS unit for fishing enthusiasts and other boaters. It replaces the 967c as the company's top-end model through its namesake sonar imaging system: an 800MHz scanner can be used for detailed maps of the sea floor up to 150 feet directly below a boat or to 240 feet at either side. Its 8-inch screen is also said to be large enough to allow side-by-side display of live marine chart data at the same time.

Tracking is also accurate, provided through a 16-channel GPS receiver as well as dual SD card slots that add either extra maps or a second card for storing images that can prove the location and show images of a prime fishing location or a shipwreck.

Humminbird lists the device through its company store for $1,999 and includes a detailed UniMap chart that covers the US coast as well as lakes and rivers; maps for Canada and other regions should also be an option. [via OhGizmo]
