Thread: Humminbird 747C FishFinder

    Default Humminbird 747C FishFinder

    My husband & I are considering purchasing this fish finder. Any comments from someone who has one? Also, Is: 'Transom Mount Included' the transducer? It doesn't mention the transducer as included. Humminbird.factoryoutletstore reduced price overnite from $389.95 to $359.95 and with a Free WeatherSense included. We are new at fishfinders, so will take any other suggestions on others also. We live in Arkansas, mostly fish shallow, murky waters for catfish (Lake Dardenelle), and crappie fish (Nimrod Lake). Thought the color fishfinders would be easier for a beginner to figure out?? Any help appreciated. Price up to $400.00 okey. Thanks

    Default transducer

    No. It is a DualBeam PLUS w/Selectable Broad 60 deg. Beam & Precision 20 deg. Beam. What we liked is the 5" TFT Color screen rather than the 3 1/2" and 640V x 480 Ultra-High Resolution. It also has Maxium 4000 Watts Peak-To-Peak (500 Watts RMS) Power Output. It's GPS Ready, which we are not interested in now. There is enough to learn! We just can't figure out if it comes with a transducer. Says Transom Mount Included, but is that a transducer???? Wish someone could tell us. Found it on http://humminbird.factoryoutletstore.com/details

    If you click on add to cart it says with trolling motor transducer. I would call them to be sure.

    That's a good price on that unit plus the weather since is about $90 bucks. The one I looked at comes with a transom mount transducer. Call them and make sure. If it doesn't Humminbird has a transducer exchange program. I personally would go the extra and buy the GPS antenna! It will cost you about $90 bucks and you saved that much on the weather since! The GPS is well worth the money! I wouldn't be without mine. It has probably increased my catch rate by 70% just cause I don't waste time looking for tops anymore. I go right to them! Buy the way. Mount the antenna as close to the transducer as you can where it can get a goo signal. :D

    Nothing to do with the transducer signal. The advantage you gain by having the GPS antenna over your transducer is when you "mark" that brushpile on the GPS while you are looking at it on the depthfinder, that is right where it is. I have a long boat and if I had my GPS antenna on the bow & I was looking at the brushpile with my stern transducer when I marked it then I'm accually marking 20 feet away at the bow of the boat where my antenna is. My waypoint will be on the bow not the stern. It may not seem like much but when you go back to look for that pile later & your GPS says you're on it, it is really 20 feet from where you are looking. It's just a little trick I learned while monkey'n around with my Matrix 87c. Saves a lot of time looking & gives a "truer" mark! :D
