Humminbird 767 Sonar/Mapping GPS Combo

2 posts in this topic

Has anybody had any experience with this locator? What are you likes and dislikes about it? Does the gps have an internal antenna or external?

Thanks,

I run a 787 and will say that overall I love the unit, color is the only way to go though, it appears that the 767 is a non color model, If i were you I'd wait and save up the extra couple hundred and get the color or wait and find a used color unit online somewhere. It's a little early for people to start selling them but by April there should be a few around.

Dislikes:

You can only use the Navionics chips with Humminbird.

Humminbird uses manufactured set pricing, so it's tough to find a deal on them, but if you look around you might find a discount here and there and use it to get a price match.

Likes:

I love the quick connect mount system that humminbird has, simply snap it in and push power, shut it off and unsnap the unit to take with you, no wires to plug in or take off.

Humminbird is locally serviced in Mankato Mn, should a problem arise service is not to far away.

Im not a fan of internal gps antennas so I'd purchase the external puck if it's not already included. Most of them come with the full package, mounting kits etc just make sure you clarify when you purchase.

The rest of the features that are on the units are going to be pretty much the same as the competition, number of waypoints etc for the average joe fisherman like myself theres more features than I'll ever use.

    • Switched up my pick at the last second in bucket A and put Wheeler in there. Great ledge fisherman and sounds like this dude puts in more time on the water then any other angler out there.   A. Wheeler B. Evers C. Tharp D. Herren E. Omori   Sounds like the bite has been super tough. Will be interesting to see how it goes. 
    • They are drumming like crazy now. In fact, I even hear them at night. My wife said when she was a teenager growing up in rural Wisconsin, she always thought that drumming sound was the nearby powerstation.    
    • Lilac blooms are here, just haven't opened. Hearing some reports of good finds in the Houston and Lewiston areas of MN. I checked some new public areas today on the MN side. Could be decent later but too cold and wet right now. Will check some early season spots tomorrow but won't hope for much with the cold weather.
    • Nice!  Must have seemed forever waiting.
    • 6 months later and he is home
    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
