I have not bought one for ten years or more. Now there are so many abbreviations next to the make and model that I don't know where to begin!

I would be fishing central Ohio waters and taking it to Florida to fish the bays and backwaters. For that reason, I will need a unit with GPS.

I don't want to spend $1000 if $500 will do. However if the added features are that beneficial then I would spend more.

The humminbird models at cabelas caught my eye.

I would be doing a lot of bottom fishing and looking for contours and structure.

Factoryoutletstore.com has the 598ci HD SI for $739.99. That is no tax and free ship. The 898c HD SI is $1,219.99. The difference in the screen size from those two units are huge, more so if you are useing Side Image. The 500 and 700 series have a 5 inch screen then it goes up to a 7 inch for the 800 series. I have the 1198c DI SI and i love it. I was finding bluegill beds this spring with my side image in rough water that i couldnt see with sight fishing.
