Humminbird 140C Fishin Buddy Portable Fish Finder Review

The Humminbird 140C Fishin Buddy Portable Fish Finder Review.  The 140C model in the Humminbird Fishin’ Buddy series is their most advanced portable fishfinder out of the four which includes the 110, 120 and 130. How is it different than the 130 Fishin Buddy model? They are pretty much identical except that the 130 model has a grayscale screen, like all the lower models, whereas the 140 has a color display. There is also a price difference of $50 more which is the increase between each model, starting with the 110 Fishin Buddy at $119.99 (MSRP). Most feel that the $50 extra for the color screen is worth it, making identification more easy. You can read about the differences between all four models ( 110, 120, 130 and 140) and view our comparison table on the Humminbird Fishin Buddy Review and Comparison Chart.

Humminbird 140 Fishin Buddy Portable Fish Finder – User review from Central, Illinois

“Bought unit for remote fly-in in Norther Manitoba. Seven days of hard fishing and was on the second set of AA’s when the trip ended. The unit was flawless.”

Humminbird 140 Fishin Buddy Portable Fish Finder – User review from Northeast, Ohio

“I’ve used the 140C on my canoe for a week now. The screen is easy to see even on bright days. The menu has plenty of options and is simple to use. Battery life was about 16 to 17 hrs and the unit has a low battery alarm that the user can set or turn off. There are enough adjustments on the mounting bracket to clamp about anywhere and be able to aim the transducer straight down, and the shaft also extends on this model so the sidewinder may be turned to aim under a boat. So far I am well satisfied with the unit.”
