Humminbird Question

12 posts in this topic

Can I network two Humminbird GPS/Sonar units together so that both units can use one Navionics chip at the same time?

Thanks,

SimIs - no, you need to use a separate chip in each unit.

Is it practical or possible to put side imaging on the Bow Mount Trolling motor as well as the helm?

I would say no at this point. Main reason, I have not come accros a SI trolling motor ducer yet. I may have just over looked it though.

Lots of people run SI on the bow. Humminbird sells a couple SI trolling motor transducers.

There are a couple issues with TM mounted SI. A straight path of travel is required for optimal imaging, the trolling motor can't be panned left or right in most instances. Also, noise issues related to TM mounted Hummingbirds is not uncommon.

You can run a say 997c SI on the console and run a 777c or 787c (non-side imaging) on the bow. Then pick up their Interlink networking cable. You only need one Navionics chip in the console unit. You can share waypoints and the map. For example, if you're fishing on the bow and enter a waypoint, it will register on the console unit.

Just bought a 917c on sale for $709 to use on the front. They told me that Interlink would share the waypoints, but wouldn't share the chip. I'm planning on a 997c si at the helm and network it to the 917c at the bow with a Quadra transducer on the Trolling Motor. I plan on swiveling the Helm unit around if I need SI at the Trolling Motor. That probably saved me about a grand or more.

Where did you find a 917c for $709. That seems like a great price.

Walked into Bass Pro and just happened to be at the counter when the manager was changing the display. He lowered the price to $788 (was 9 something)and gave me another 10% off for being the display model. I was looking at the 787c to go with the 997c si that I ordered for the helm. I just couldn't see a reason not to go with the 917c and its huge screen for fifty more dollars. Now if my boat would only get here so I'll have something to put it on - haha!

Ya I got a steal last week. I got a 957c for under $500. Gander had only 1 left and ran it 50% off the already 30% sale. I found out the day before the sale and had them hold it. Im very happy with the unit and the cost made it a no brainer.

Sweet, sounds like I should have held out for a lower price!

The 957c has the Quadra Transducer, right? Mine only has the dual, but I can add one if I want.

    • Check out the 2017 Obsession Hurcan 366fps and 3.9 lbs!
    •   When someone gets to the personal aspect, whether it's me or someone else, I will challenge them and if they can justify what they have said about an individual --OK -- otherwise show me why, and if it is just their opinion say so. I'll accept that if it's their opinion.   There is nothing generic about an insult, an insult is an insult. What do you consider as a douchebag?
    • Not sure why people get so worked up about being called dummies, poopyheads and sons of bees.  Whatever, its generic insults and this is the internet.   But yeah, there's a line somewhere in the there that separates the real douchebags* from the rest of us.  You know it when you see it.   *Sorry if any douchebags felt personally attacked by being called douchebags.
    • I was addressing it to JigSawJimmy Peatmoss  response : That's an opinion, not anything more , so I let it go.
    • Created/Saved all these jobs, cut gajillions off AF1 costs, etc.  Ok, so how did the that work?  Usually these sort of dealings aren't totally one sided.  At least the carrier deal had a bunch of Pence fingerprints on tax incentives Trump took credit for.   I have doubts that King Cheeto just shows up and blows a bunch of smoke up assses and corporate executives are just like, "Yay!"   Is Trump's Twitter bully pulpit that powerful?  He randomly yells at Boeing and they just fold over for him?  I thought we realized Trump on Twitter is only for the LOLs.
    • Well hope the Trump supporters are having fun, seems those days are numbered. Turns out you can't just yell fake news at real news and make it go away. The Feds are closing in, and at best it seems Trump thinks throwing Manafort to the wolves might get them off his tail. Anywho, lots of news today.   The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign   McCain: Congress doesn't have 'credibility' to handle Russia probes    Because this happened - House Intelligence chair discloses classified intel in clumsy effort to validate Trump   Also this earlier in the day -  Former campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly worked for a Russian billionaire with a plan to "greatly benefit the Putin Government."     And in completely unrelated news - remember those Carrier jobs you bragged about Trump saving? Yeah, those jobs are gone. Carrier pocketed the tax breaks then screwed the workers anyway. Great negotiation there. http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/job-cuts-endure-at-indiana-factories-despite-trump-pressure-416511193.html
    •   Who are you addressing this to? I did not make the statement only re-posted it. I also don't find PEATMOSS's comment very humorous as well.   PEATMOSS said: This is still, by far, the funniest thing I have ever read on these threads in a decade.
    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY
