I am considering upgrading from my X-85 to the X-97 I was looking for any input on the units and how others feel they compare? Any input would be great. Thanks

The X-97 is the upgrade to the X-85. There are four main differences between the units, the X-97 has a 320x320, pixel screen, multi level greyline, better connectors for the cables, and a screen with a rotary flasher. The power and menue layout remained the same.

I just put an x 97 on my boat this morning, Havent had it on the water yet tho. Upgrades from the x 85 (I moved my x85 up to the bow) other than the 320 vs 240 vertical pixels include adjustable backlighting, no more really bright locator in the dark of night, reversable grayscale, new fishreveal, I think I'm going to use that quite a bit, The temp is now included in the transducer, no longer need to buy the add on unless you need the speed also. Overall its changed quite a bit over the 85, both are great units! Good fishin! Paul

The 98 is made for deep water. Really deep. For the average guy in this area it is not needed.
