A bit off the wall here and I hope you can help.
I live in Australia and am looking to buy a Humminbird 788 sounder/chartplotter from the US, as the price in the Us is half of the Aus cost,
Problem is the Humminbird sites all say the US model only displays in imperial, so feet and celcius I think and mph. This is not particularly useful to me in a metric land.
Has anyone got a relatively new Humminbird of about that size or bigger? If so can you look in the settings and see if there is an option to set the unit to metric? I would greatly appreciate it if you would. My old Humminbird from the US was capable of the change but I havent seen a new one to know myself
Other wise I might have to go to a Lowrance 7 series not a bad option but I have had service issues with my Lowrance previously and dont want that problem again.
Any one got any other suggestions for a unit up to about 1k with a transducer that they like? I can get a 788 for about 800.00 adn the 7 for about 1k Anyone know of a good reliable dealer as well? i have used a couple but wouldnt mind more suggesgtions.
