What is the full model name of the unit ...??

798c SI Combo
798ci SI Combo
798ci HD SI Combo

I'm pretty sure HB did not make a HD model without internal GPS antenna ...

I was reading that software version 6.3 is the highest for the 798c SI units (non HD) so in that case they will not be able to use the antennae due to not being able to install the appropriate software.  The GPS puck that came with my 798 is a different model.

As for the newer HD units the AS GPS HS antennae webpage does not show anything below an 1159 unit as being compatible.

So at first glance it appears that this unit is not compatible.  Someone from Humminbird or someone that has already tried to install it will have to provide an answer.

Is your unit serial number registered in your HB account ...??

Then the "My Humminbird" link on the HB website main webpage will get you into your HB account where that specific serial number unit will show the latest version software for that specific serial number ...
