There is supposed to be a release for the 798 SOON .... it is supposed to be in April

What specific problems are you referring to?

The US units will get the update Bob, the cXi - International units may come later, if at all.
I took this screenshot quite recently, v7.510 it's out for the US version, NADA on International.

-Many GPS lost position even when trolling
-Many GPS map display wrongly my current location is like 200 feet away of what i should be at
-My Autochart settings reading card are not save when choosing to read from the card slot, have to resetup back on every use


very fustrating paying 800$ for a product not fully funcional

Where did you find an update version 7.510 for a 798 HD. The last update for it was last July 7.120 .

You are wrong. Updates come at least for American and international units simultaneously.
The screenshot Asian version. It is really an update later. Kind regards.

Bob tells correctly. In April, most likely.

YOU seem to be the incorrect one. I have a US 998c HDSI and US 899ci HDSI, and no longer have the 898CXA. Please see attached...
The  998 & 898 US firmwares were dispersed the same time, and the 898CXA remains on the old v 7.090 like my 998 had previous to v 7.510.
I don't just make things up; and I'll be sure not to question your integrity ~ especially if you have first hand experience like myself.
The burden of proof isn't on me, sometimes the truth can be a bit much!

898cXA- this Asian version, not International.
898с and 898cX software version 7.510 came at the same time.

I don't know if everyone has seen this, but I found it buried in the Humminbird FAQ.  Perhaps it could help out with all of these "what is my current version" questions that keep coming up.  It seems to have been updated fairly recently, within about a month or so.

The most reliable way to know what the current software version for your unit is to sign into your My Humminbird account and see what is posted there.

I don't seem to see "your" version and the  CXA is an international version as was explained by HB representatives, not some guy off the street.

You can hold my opinion, but I know what I write. International and American version of the same. Isolated Asian version
Sometimes guy off the street, too, can know  ;)

International and American version of one and the same, so there is no division.

Let's wait that says Greg. If he wants to answer. Before drawing conclusions.
You are not able to admit their mistakes. This is bad.
I was also warned of some users here passing bad info....

This applies to you, dear.
Support service can also be wrong or not correctly understand your question and not give the correct answer.

The "conversation" has only become as useless as you have made it.
People come here for help with their units, not comments that are unhelpful.
I choose NOT to try & drag Greg into this and keep confidential the parties I was previously engaged on the CXA unit being an International version - I knew it was Asian as soon as I opened it.
I was also offered a swap to the USA version at no charge, had I not already returned it to seller.
I'm done with your debate, and will answer any questions I can with users seeking assistance.
