I have owned Humminbirds for over 20 years. So when it was time to replace my old 550 EZ, I began to research the new models. I picked the 561 Sonar and am so happy I did. Set-up was easy and operation has been great. Lots of different menu items I haven't gotten into yet. Just enjoying gettin on the walleyes.

Replaced an older unit that finally died. Great value for the price. Works very well and was simple to install.

After my old finder (an Eagle) took a dump, I needed something reliable but affordable--and this unit surpasses all expectations. After using it all last season--I have to say I'm impressed with it. Simple to use, clear, precise. And the price was right too. Seen higher priced finders that aren't as good as this one. Highly recommend.

Broke the transducer for my 20-yr old still working Humminbird 8000, so needed a replacement. I'm 69, retired, and still pushing a 1983 Ranger 330V, purchased new, so didn't want to spend much money. So far ( 3-weeks) , real happy with this unit. It has most all the bells and whistles of more expensive units, and being black / white doesn't bother me any, as bottom, fish, and structure show up clearly.
