older of newer 998c
« on: April 05, 2013, 07:20:01 AM »
purchsed a 998c at christmas time for a really good price. But I noticed that the models i've seen on other store sites have 998c HD on them. My new unit only has 998c on it. Is there a difference in the 2 units. I also have a 798 on the bow and it seems to give crisper images then the 998, even with the si range turned down. the 798 reads 798ci HD. Is there a difference in older to newer models. All have the most current software installed.

there is a difference,but its not a huge one. the models with HD designation have a LED screen backlight.That's all I have heard of.

That is the only operational difference that I know if as well. 
Internally the circuit boards changed but they had to due to the needed change in backlighting circuitry.

I guess there's no way to factory up grade this unit
