Hey Guys,

A few months ago I picked up a Hummingbird Helix 5 DI/GPS for my kayak and decided to wait a little bit before buying a chart card for it. Now since I have decided to get the maps for it I have no idea what to buy, I was looking into the Navionics gold and hot maps in the micro SD. If anyone has any advice of experience please let me know what I should get.

Some use both cards, it depends on what lakes you fish as Lake Master will have better info for some lakes, Navionics looks better on others and both will just be personal preference for some. Ford vs Chevy.
