Greetings to all from Canada,
I have a message ready to post on 898 forum and while previewing I touched something else and boom! – everything was gone. So another lesson for some of us – use Microsoft Word or other program and copy/paste to save you from using “nice words” when you lose everything. Things happen all the time and we have to live with it.
But, this is not the topic of my post.
I’ve been reading your Forum for about past 2 weeks and I know that this is a right website to be part of it. Especially, when getting a new 898c SI Combo unit.
David Hoggard “Hoggie” from Owatonna, MN has been well known in fishing circles as an avid pro-fisherman and host of radio fishing show and a former administrator of catch-n.com. He has made a fishing show with me and another show which focused on choosing a right Humminbird SI unit. It was done a few years ago. It has been a lot of changes since that time. When I get a link from Hoggie, I’ll post those links on forum.
You’ll enjoy one of the songs done by Elliot Brothers “Will there be any fishing in heaven?” – I love that song. I believe so.

Hoggie contacted Kimberly from Johnson Outdoors Marine Electronics in Mankato, MN
And we made the deal re: purchasing 898c SI Combo, which at the end, it is a Christmas gift from my parishioner and his family.
I would imagine that some of you’ve been fishing at Tobin Lake, SK. This is a man made reservoir on North Saskatchewan River between Dams. We have exellent fishing. I believe that another world record will come from this Lake. A lot of fishermen are coming to Tobin Lake from Texas, California, Idaho, Dakota (both) and most of all from Minnesota.
One of the topics on your FORUM was dedicated to: benefits of viewing images on you laptop.
My questions are:
1. What cables do I need in order to connect to my laptop?
2. Are those cables come with the unit or they are optional?
3. Are there any other accessories I need to have in order to take advantage of this 898cSI to the fullest?
4. Do you know if I can download my own maps into this unit?
5. Are there any preload maps or other Navionic maps which may have Tobin Lake, Saskatchewan in it? Or any other maps of the lakes in Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Alberta or British Columbia?
Thank you for your help.
