Pros: Large screen size makes better use of multiple open windows. Side imaging shows me the spot on the spot and good for marking weed clumps on flats with waypoints and not going over them, then going back and making a pass on the waypoints:) The Lakemaster SD card "optional" is the Absolute Bomb I now don,t have to troll around and search for certain sunken structures, it just shows me exactly where it,s at especially on the HD maps "1Ft contour" Minnesota.This alone saves me alot of time while out fishing.
Cons: Getting the transducer installed correctly takes time and research.As there can be no obstructions to the side of the transducer or side imaging will be blocked.Side imaging only works at speeds of about 1-5 mph. Expensive but worth it to me anyways. Not being able to pick individual windows you want on your three preset buttons.
Other Thoughts: The most important advice I can give is take your time and research the transducer installation.It,s not as hard as it sounds, it,s just there are numerous variables to consider in placement of the transducer. There are built in maps on the gps function side with no need for the Lakemaster SD card but believe me once you see the exacting detail of the Lake below you on the card you,ll know all is good:) The 898c si combo is software updatable so maybe Humminbird will come out with a software update so I can choose my windows instead of haveing to use the preset ones.
