I've not used the 5200 product. But that would work fine with the Boatlife caulk, so I'd think it'd be fine with the 5200, too.

Boatlife marine caulk works good for sealing up new and old holes.

Hope you enjoy the new unit. It's a great fish finder.

All of the 798 units that we have built (HD and non-HD) have all been built with the same 640 X 640 LED backlit display. Thanks for clearing that up (again) for us, Greg! Seems there is some confusion on this, so I appreciate the official word that all the 798's ever built have used the same screen...

Yes, same issue with the 898. AFAIK, it's still only the 798 and 1198 that are easily viewed in direct sunlight.

Mine finally settled down. No idea why, but it's been fine lately.

Just a small addition here. The 798's have always had this "HD" screen, even before Humminbird started calling them HD.

Maybe it has to do with your mounting procedure? I've been using the same mount for over 2 years on my 798 with no issues. And I don't read about this issue on the fourms. My 798 stays in the holder all the time.

I think you're correct, the 1198 is the only other HB SI/DI unit that has bright, direct sunlight viewable screen.

My 997 did that today, too. I had not used it much at all since I had updated to 5.450 a while back, so it could well be related to that update. I finally figured out if I played with the surface clutter setting and dialed it way down, it would finally start working normally. A little disconcerting ...

Sorry and no offense, but your post is a bit hard to read. I think you're asking about TM interference, right? If so, you won't know until you try. Mine did suffer from that even with an HD transducer up front. But HB sent me a free kit that fixed the issue completely. Hopefully, you will never have...

It should remember the setting. You could maybe try a reset to factory settings to see if that helps. Does it have the latest software on it?

Otherwise, it sounds like an issue for HB support.

Ouch. Sounds like it's time to call the good folks at HB. Hopefully they can help you fix it without sending it in.

When you push the menu button while on the GPS screen with the MOB marker, you should see an option to "cancel MOB". Is that not there or not working to turn it off?

Put the older version on SD card and take it with you when you go to the lake. If the new version is not working right, it's easy to flash it back while on the water.
