Humminbird has used the Miami International Boat Show 2014 to introduce 14 new products in their 800, 900, and 1100 series of combination SONAR, chart plotter, and GNSS receiver devices. All of the new models feature an internal GPS receiver with a 10-Hz position update. All include standard Contour XD base mapping and have dual slots for memory cards.

The 800 series feature a wide aspect ratio 800 x 480 pixel 7-inch color display, and consists of four models:

--899ci HD SI Combo
--859ci HD DI Combo:
--859ci HD Combo
--859ci HD XD Combo (Extreme Depth, up to 3,000-feet)

The 900 series features a wide aspect ratio 8-inch color display, and consists of five models:

--999ci HD SU Combo
--999ci HD SI KVD Combo
--959ci HD DI Combo
--959ci HD Combo
--959ci HD XD Combo (Extreme Depth, up to 3,000-feet)

The 100 series features a 4:3 aspect ratio 10.4-inch color display, and consists of five models:

--1199ci HD SI Combo
--1199ci HD SI KVD Combo
--1159ci HD DI Combo
--1159ci-HD Combo
--1159 HD XD Combo (Extreme Depth, up to 3,000-feet)

The 800 series can use Humminbird LakeMaster, LakeMaster AutoChart, and Navionics Gold/HotMaps.

The 900 and 1100 can use all of those plus Navionics Platinum+ charts.

Network connectivity using Ethernet is included on all three series. Via Ethernet the devices can also link to NMEA-2000 networks.

To sort out the precise differences among all these models, see

The inclusion of the XD or Extreme Depth models seems to signal the entry of Humminbird into saltwater fishing SONAR. Previously the Humminbird brand was associated with freshwater fishing in shallower water.

It sounds like Humminbird will be using their Ethernet to NMEA-2000 gateway to provide NMEA-2000 connectivity with these units. It is not clear from the information I can find on-line about the new units if the GNSS receiver is a NAVSTAR GPS-only receiver.
