Question

What is the depth rating for the unit?

Can't find this unit on the Humminbird site, only a 587 without DI, which it doesn't give depth ratings for. What is the depth rating for this unit? I am concerned about the lower RMS watts(300) vs the 597 with 500 RMS watts which has a 250ft DI rating and 600ft rating for sonar.

The primary differences between the Humminbird 587 ci (IK-022014 ) and the 597 ci (IK-021682), is that the 597 has a screen that is 1/2" larger in the diagonal measurement and the 597 higher power rating (4000 watts v. 2400 watts). What you see on the screen will essentiall be the same. You should be able to see underwater structure, fish and bottom details on each system.
