I have been out fishing with the Humminbird 1158c DI tracker religiously after I bought it. Each time I have been blown away with the extreme detail that is provided on the 10.4 inch screen. It has a clean 600X800 pixel resolution that works beautifully with the LCD screen. This is all available at a reasonable price when comparing to similar products before I made my purchase. It comes with a one year warranty so you can make sure that it is the right product for you before you keep it for good. The precision GPS receiver ensures that I know where I am at all times and provides accurate data on the screen, ensuring that my casts hit their target location at a higher frequency. I can honestly say that I have had a greater fishing experience with the Humminbird 1158c DI since I started using it on my boat. Of course I don’t get a bite every single cast, but that is to be expected regardless of the hardware you use.
I do suggest you take advantage of the dual SD card slots to get the most out of the data processing power of this fishfinder. With this you can easily load multiple data sets or switch between different third party data products with ease. The reliability of the Humminbird 1158c DI is well above average in my opinion!
