    I'm in the market for a new gps/finder but now find myself very confused. I'd love the Humminbird 798cxi but am concerned about the 5" screen being too small and the next step up costs more than double the price (I can get a 798cxi for $1500). The Lowrance HDS 7 also looks good but the structure scan unit is pretty pricey at almost $1000 and the HDS 7 itself costs as much as the HB.

    What would you guys recommend? Go for the smaller screen or spend the extra $1000 to get the HDS 7? Also does anyone know for sure if HB are coming out with an 800 series unit in Oz anytime soon?
