Answer:
If you compare the two the Humminbird Smartcast would be a better buy.

  • 75 foot operating range compared to 35 foot cable
  • allows use of 2 remote sonar sensors
  • auto shut off on remote sonar sensor
  • 100 foot depth capability
  • 90 degree sonar beam compared to 45 degree (need to purchase side scan adapter)
  • uses a 2450 cr battery (watch battery)- may come with 1 installed and 1 extra battery
  • although the Hawkeye can shoot thru ice if you do any icefishing.
