Humminbird® 678c HD DI Sonar. Get an eye-opening picture of the action below, in bright, backlit color!

Don't drop a blind line. With DualBeam PLUS™ and Down Imaging sonar and backlit 5" color display, the guessing game is over. Read on to learn how the Humminbird® 678ci HD DI Fish Finder presents a clear vision of fishing success!

Beam Me Up!

DualBeam PLUS Sonar - 2 beams and the best of both worlds! A narrow beam is optimized for bottom and structure detail below your boat, while a wide beam casts a wider net, searching for fish and structure around your boat. View them side-by-side onscreen or combine the images into 1 comprehensive view!

Look Out Below!

Down Imaging Sonar - Provides picture-like images of structure below your boat by combining a traditional down-looking sonar view with side imaging technology. Observe Down Imaging side-by-side on your screen with SwitchFire™ (explained below), or on a 3-way view.

Light a Fire Under Your Boat

SwitchFire - Gives you a real time, customized look below the water's surface with 2 different modes: "Max Mode" and "Clear Mode". Clear Mode filters out noise (suspended particles, etc.) in agitated or shallow (8' or less) water for a clearer image of fish and structure. Max Mode for incredible detail and easy lure monitoring. See cover, structure, fish, even thermoclines and water currents. Keep an eye on your bait or jigging action for the best lure presentation.

More advanced sonar features:
  • Split Screen Zoom increases the displayed resolution to separate sonar returns that are very close together
  • Split Screen Bottom Lock
  • Wide / Narrow Cone Split Screen separates the sonar data using the two primary user selectable down-looking beams simultaneously in split screen
  • Instant Image Update... the sonar chart updates in real time to show the latest information on the sonar screen
  • Freeze Frame with the ability to mark structure on sonar. Inspect and mark submerged structure, bait fish, and underwater contours with special Sonar Cursor
  • Sonar echo enhancement
  • Real Time Sonar Window always updates at the fastest rate possible and shows only the returns from the bottom, structure, and fish that are within the transducer beam. Displayed on the right side - adjust the window to narrow, wide or off
  • Selective Fish ID+ interprets sonar returns and displays a fish symbol when very selective requirements are met. When a fish is detected, a fish icon and its depth are displayed above the return. 3 different fish icons represent intensity of the sonar return, and provide an indicator of relative fish size
User Friendly Features:
  • X-Press™ Menu System provides quick access to the settings most frequently used
  • Large Digits View provides digital data in a large, easy-to-see format
  • Custom View Selections allows you to see only the views that you want, giving you the flexibility to access the information you need quickly and easily
