    the 565 is a good unit but I dont think it has GPS and I would choose to have GPS for the maps and night fishing. so to choose between them 2 I would have to take the GPS unit.

    I just ordered the 788ci, some good upgrades 4000 watts, nav card, and several others. I will let you know how I like it after the weekend.

    I mounted a buddy's 565 on my boat and played with it for a week or so.
    It's a good one for the money.
