There are three 798 models.
The 798ci HD SI is the 2011 model year with an Ethernet connection.

The 798ci SI is the 2009-2010 model with internal GPS antenna.

The 798c SI is the 2009-2010 model with an external GPS antenna.

Ok, thanks. That makes more sense. Got the model I wanted then.

Tried her out some yesterday, man what a difference in the bright sun! Only thing that could be better is the larger screen, but I quickly figured out how to switch to different screens to see DI,SI ect tra by itself full screen. Like the DI/sonar screen the best so far.

The ratchets on the mount and transducer are set up to give you the proper tranducer angle for your transom angle. The instructions state how to use them.

I like the 2D/DI dual view of the 798 also. IMHO it is better than those views beside each other with the larger screen models.

i got a interesting update. i was able to sell my 597 for a slight loss and ordered my 798 from the website. today it arrived and installed it just as i did my 597 (per instructions). i had 2 issues going on that i didnt have with my 597. (1st) when the unit is clicked into the mount if i put any pressure on the right side of the case on the back (as if i wanted to turn it to the left) it looses power. i can turn to the right no problem. checked cables 10 times for any cable pinch or strain.... none found. (2nd) the transducer cable pulls up thru the mount when unit is released and has to be pressed back in. --called and spoke to CS and explained everything, they are sending a new mount but i know that wont fix the power issue. just to confirm this, a friend stopped by with a older b/w humminbird and i plugged it right in... turned left, turned right, tilt up/down..... now problem. ugh!!!! i took a video to try to save time by having the techs have a true understanding of the problem. i would love to see them ship out a new unit and i can send mine back when the new one arrives so i am not without a unit.

crazywelder72, your issue has a simple resolution and a new unit will not resolve it.
Remove the 798 from the mount and take the cable collector apart.
Bend the tab on the metal plate (that you should have installed and didn't or the metal tab is bent so it won't hold the plug in the collector) up slighty on the power cord slot so it will hold the power cord plug more firmly. Reassemble the cable collector.
Next bend the two power cord pins VERY SLIGHTLY (so little you cannot tell you did it). Snap the display back on the mount--problem solved.
The fit of the cord plugs in the unit receptacles is intentionally made to be a sloppy fit so the display can be removed easily.

If your unit came with the PC-11 power cord (with the choke) and you have that below the boat hull under the mount, the choke-to-plug distance is so short that all the movement you were doing will pull on the plug end if the hole you made is not big enough to allow the choke to be in the hole some.
If that is one of the issues, get a PC-10 power cord ( not recommended for a bow mount setup) and change the cord ( it doesn't have the choke.

That sloppy fit of the power cord plug is a common issue with all Humminbird models and the "adjustment" of the plug pins is the remedy.

thanks for the input and i understand everything you stated.

slightly bending the pins would work if it were the female receptacles were slightly "loose" and its hard to check this. if that were the issue any rotation or movement would cause this failure not just "left rotational pressure on the back of the unit".

the metal retainer clip is installed, and even if i tweak the metal clip on the power terminal that wouldn't prevent the transducer cable from popping up thru the mount and it shouldn't.

the filter/choke on the cbl isn't snagging on anything, towards the end of the video you can see i barley touch the unit and it dies. in order for the choke to play a factor the base and or cable would have to be pulled, not rotated.

When I had that same issue with just pushing the unit buttons, tilting the display or rotating the base, I was skeptable also. It still fixed the problem and has for many. The female part of the system IS a loose fit as I explained before and is intentional as explained to me by a Humminbird tech. I still think a better way should be employed for the plug pins to unit fit and told him so as well as adding it to the list of suggested improvements for all the units.

Send me your address and I'll send you the plastic part that the plugs go into-I have some extras. The plug certainly shouldn't come out thru that part. The bending the tab deal is to make a tight fit of the plugs in the plastic part. purdum43@aol.com

Are your referring to the base map or some plug and play added map software?

Is this a 798ci HD (2011 Model) Make sure it is on a 2011 700 Series Mounting Base because they changed the base in 2011 for Ethernet functions.
