    A friend of mine at work got a 997c a month or so ago. I haven't seen it in action on the water, but he brought in some screen captures that he took and they look incredible.

    He started a web site dedicated to the side imaging units: www.sideimageforums.com. I think he has at least one guy from Humminbird that posts on there.
     

  3. I got the 797 about a month ago. I have not really used the side imaging much. I do love the color sonar and the GPS. Get the Navonics Hot Maps card. It gives you a live map of he lake you are on. It shows sunken island, fishing devices and dept contours with you boats position to all this in real time. I don't know how I ever fished without the 797.
     
  4. thanks for the replies, don't know if i'm going to keep it or get a lowrance model.
