The warranty is a year, so you should have plenty of time if you just bought it. Pull the unit off the boat and bring it home with you to test. You'll also need a spare power cable (like $10) and a 12v battery (car, motorcycle, etc).

That's a heck of a deal on a 798! Odd that they'd stop carrying them. It is still a current model.

Maybe I'm not reading your question right, but the 798 comes with a very easy and quick disconnect mount standard. You just push the bar on the back of the unit and pull it off the mount. Easy to do with one hand. Then you can lock it below decks, take it with you, etc. The bigger units, from the 89...

Not sure what your question is? If you're asking if that card will work, sure, it'll work fine.

Depth makes a big difference with Switchfire, too. Below 10', it should be switched to "clear".

All of the 798, 898, 998 and 1198's that you'd buy from any reputable dealer will have them in the factory sealed box, except the 798CI, of course, since it's got an internal antenna. There are some discount houses that may have odd combinations where they don't have certain parts, so beware when bu...

Re: jejb

For those that mount an internal GPS antenna unit on boats with a metal overhead canopy or those that want the GPS antenna to be near the transducer for more precise accuracy for waypoints based on sonar position, they add an remote GPS antenna. Yep, I know. That's why I asked him why he was wantin...

Sounds like you're on the right track. Make sure you have the unit in "advanced" mode, and play with the switchfire modes. If you're under 10', use clear. Over 10', use max.

Good luck!

The C will come with the external antenna in the box. If it has GPS, it will have an antenna supplied with it. Just a matter of if it's internal or external.

Correct. Not sure where you heard that, but it is for sure wrong. The behavior/performance of the internal antenna is EXACTLY the same as the external. Again, I have one of each and run them both a lot. I fish 3-4 days a week.

I have both. My 798 is a CI, my 997 is a C. I prefer the internal one. No extra cables or modules. If you want to use the unit in more than one place in the boat, you don't have to buy multiple modules. As far as the nav stuff, both are rock solid and behave in exactly the same manner. I've never he...

Very reliable. Mine has over 1000 hours on it now, and has never given me any issue.
and how much does it cost to add an external antenna?
Confused as to why you'd want to add that to a CI unit. Can you explain please?

Not quite. C stands for Color. CI stands for Color with Internal antenna. I guess in effect, just a C would also mean it does not have the internal antenna, though.
