Can I view on computer?

No Alice, you can't. The only thing you can do is put an SD memory card and put it in the unit and save screen shots for viewing on the computer. To update the firmware and programming, you load to an DC card on the computer and then insert it in the unit. The unit always remains on the boat.

I had the 798CSi, and now have the 998 HD.

My humminbird 898c is stuck on the loading screen, won't turn off or anything, any ideas?

First steps (you may have done done) check all wiring connections ,transducer, power,ext. at both ends. Attempt power up again. No change. Call 1-800-633-1468 with model & serial #'s. OR Disconnect all cable connections from unit and with a strip of aluminum foil short out all the connections on the 898c.(not the cable). Attempt power up again. If unit will let you go to 'System Status' screen & record. Hope your unit works.

Blue screen panic

Try turn off computer, start holding down Command and S and wait until text stops scrolling.
Type in fsck -fy
Press Return and wait for the process to finish.
If it says that the disc has been changed, do it one more time.
When finished, type Reboot [and press return]
The computer should now reboot and the problem may have gone away... If not, you need to test the disk and if that is ok, maybe reinstall. You probably would like to go to a pro for that. Hope this works out...

Why does my 898c always say low voltage on the screen

Check the input voltage to this device. To work properly without any error, the input voltage at load condition [Switch ON condition] should be more than 11.7VDC. If this voltage drops from this threshold, the unit will display 'Low Voltage"
The fault is nothing but with its input voltage itself. OK.

Switched to command mode DVD1(I know...) book: you will be unable to operate this recorder. That's all they wrote. Can't undo. Nothing works-screen freeze. HELP???

To solve the problem you need to change the command code on the remote control to 1. Point the remote to the unit, and press 1 on the remote.

I had the same problem also.

You have to check and see if you're losing packing via command prompt. That could be the problem, although if this is a short time period it could just be the site
