Humminbird 385ci GPS Sonar Combo Fishfinder Review
Looking for a small and compact GPS/Fishfinder combo with leading technology including Switchfire and Dual Beam Sonar? The Humminbird 385ci is a great choice for fisherman short on space but who are looking for the very best and latest in fishfinding technology.
The Humminbird 385ci Combo includes DualBeam Sonar and GPS Chartplotting displayed on a vibrant 3.5 inch color display with LED backlight.
Switchfire technology gives you the ability to choose between Max Mode and Clear mode when viewing sonar returns. Max mode provides extraordinary detail from the smallest of fish and other objects to water currents. Clear mode eliminates unwanted details and shows only fish and structure, which is perfect for fishing in rough and shallow water.
Why limit yourself to only wide or narrow sonar beams? With DualBeam technology, two beams provide an extra wide coverage area and incredible details. The precision 20 degree beam provides superior accuracy returns of fish, bottom profiles, and structure located directly under the boat. The 60 degree expands the coverage area. You can view the beams together, separately, or side-by-side.
Additional features of the 385ci include Sonar Echo Enhancement, Split Screen Zoom, Large Digit Views, Temperature Alarm, Selective Fish ID+, Sonar Recording, Screen SnapShot, Accelerated Real Time Sonar, X-Press Menu System, and Tilt & swivel quick-release bracket or optional in-dash.
The internal 50 Channel GPS+WAAS includes built-in UniMap of US lakes, rivers, and coastlines with resolution up to 100 feet. Includes Navionics charts compatibility.
