I just updated my 899 and 1199 to the current version (7.790). After the install, I went on the water today and notice that "Deploy Ulterra" is not available anymore when you press the power button (replacd with Prop On and Prop Speed). I use this feature all the time so I was bummed.

I had to contact HB support and then send me a link to download the previous version. I installed the previous versions and "deploy Ulterra" is back. Whew!

I just received this from Humminbird:
Thank you for contacting Humminbird. We appreciate your interest in our products. I do apologize for the late reply. Was speaking to our service technicians on this. There was a glitch with the software programming that this feature was not included on the software release 7.790. Unfortunately, there will be no software release after this current version due to the fact the unit themselves are no longer manufactured.

FYI, they are referring to the 8XXci, 9XXci, 11XXci models.

This is another good representation that .. for some users - the newest software version is not always the "best" version  ...
