    Well, looks like i'm screwed. I guess I'll be looking at Lowrance or something for the WorldCat.
    " Thank you for contacting Humminbird. We appreciate your interest in our products.

    The latest software for the 987 is 4.770 there has not been a software update on this model.

    Before you move to another brand contact their customer support. If you unit is discontinued or beyond repair,they will (or did) offer an upgrade at a reduced cost. That is why I am a captive consumer since 1998.

    I installed the update. I didn't notice any change in features or performance.

    You don't at least get the distance to the nearest waypoints? I really would like that.

    I'll give them a call about the upgrade but I don't intend to move the 987c from the Regulator to the WorldCat (if that's what I buy). I'll be buying new. I seriously considered getting an all one brand best of breed of GPS/RADAR with a CHIRP transducer for deep water and then a Humminbird for side imaging.
