The Humminbird 525 Fish Finder makes an ideal upgrade to your old factory, or dealer-installed model. The 525 is a compact, high-resolution fish finder that is easy to use, and mounts virtually anywhere on your boat, giving you the economical, yet powerful tools you need to make the most out of every single fishing opportunity.

The Humminbird 525 fish finder utilizes a high-contrast, 5-inch, 12-level grayscale FSTN LCD display with 240 x 240 lines of resolution to provide you with crystal-clear views of fish, the bottom topography and surrounding structures. This unit makes use of a 20-degree single-beam sonar that is optimized for coverage and precision bottom detail. This powerful system ultimately provides you with a reliable picture up to a depth of 800 feet, and with Real Time Sonar and Sonar Echo Enhancement you not only instantly capture the action under your boat, but get a target separation of as little as 2.5 inches and can track a small jig to over 40 feet. This unit's high-speed, micro-dynamic transducer is reliable up to 70 mph, and even includes water temperature and speed capability.

The 525 fish finder features a TripLog with distance, elapsed time, and average speed, totally automatic or manual operation depending upon your need at the time, and alarms for depth, fish, and battery. This unit also features a one-touch zoom with adjustable 2x, 4x, 6x and 8x zoom levels, and lets you select TruArch to show you actual sonar returns, or FishID+ with a target depth. The Humminbird 525 includes an adjustable chart speed, an advanced LED backlight for easy night viewing, and a feature memory that retains your settings to save you set-up time. As an additional convenience, the 525 includes X-Press Menus for instant access to the most important features with fewer button presses, and a selectable large-digit screen for easy-to-read number display.

Constructed to be tough, the 525 fish finder is fully gasketed, so it is not only waterproof, but floats. This unit comes complete with a tilt-and-swivel, quick-disconnect mounting system, with no inconvenient cables to plug in. The 525 measures 7 x 7.25 x 4 inches (W x H x D), and is backed by a manufacturer's one-year limited warranty.

It would jump from 3' to 15' constantly in 10' of water.

When it did I contacted Hummingbird tech support, and they said they could fix it but it would have cost more than buying a new unit.

There is no pattern and it has done this for 3 years so I am looking at Garmins for next summer.

The depth reading on this fish finder bounced all over the place. It would jump from 3' to 15' constantly in 10' of water. I would have thought it a fluke but I later learned that two other people I work with had the same problem. Then I learned from a few fishing forums that several other people had this problem. I'm not sure if it's specific to the M#525 or the entire 500 series but no one is complaining about the other Humminbird models. I sent this back and bought a Lowrance X96, problem solved.

I requested that my wife get me this for my birthday. Took it to the lake on a week's vacation late Sept thru early Oct. so I worked with it for more than a week.
-I don't know if I can trust the depth readings. For a while, it was telling me I was in less than a foot of water when I knew it was 2 feet deep. I noticed that there is an offset you can program in to correct how deep you might have it mounted and used that to correct it, but still, why was it so far off? The way I had it mounted it was only a few inches under water. I tried using string with a weight to ck the depth, seemed ok 2 out of 3 times, but 3rd time seemed about a foot off.
-On cool mornings, when some sun would hit it, it fogged up and I couldn't read most of the display. The fog is internal. 15 years ago I bought a Wide-Eye 100 Hummingbird, it didn't fog for years. When it did I contacted Hummingbird tech support, and they said they could fix it but it would have cost more than buying a new unit. So I got the impression from that, that fog is a defect. But the FAQ's at their website say that's just the way it is - when did this change? I always thought that such an electronic device would have been assembled in a humidity controlled assy room so moisture wouldn't get in and fog the display. Maybe that's in the 'good old days' before everything is crap-made in China.

Ive been using my 525 for 3 years in the ocean on a 15 ft Boston Whaler in NJ. I have had the same internal fogging problem on the screen - also the unit works about 50% of the time. I have to turn it off and on all the time then it says 3 feet in the middle of the ocean and usually only powering off and on helps. Sometimes it gets stuck on 3 feet while I am driving and sometimes while I am drifting. There is no pattern and it has done this for 3 years so I am looking at Garmins for next summer.
Also I contacted Humminbird via email and they were no help. They sent a list of 20 things that might cause this but no real answer.

I can't fault this unit....really easy install on my kayak, works like a charm....I have a great range of preferences for my particular usage and it's so entertaining, I sometimes just paddle around just to see whats under me....it's really great!
Has made a big difference to my catch rate and confidence, knowing that I am not sitting over a fishless area trying hard to catch fish that are not there. Great for finding submerged structure as well!
I love it!
