I installed a helix 5 sonar/gps combo yesterday. it works beautiful. Being new to this I need to know how to establish a route to a waypoint. I found fish yesterday and caught them. I moved around the lake and then decided to go back to the waypoint where I caught my fish. The waypoint showed but no route. What do I need to do. This unit comes with a built in auto map but will not show contour obviously. I just need a route so I can go back to the exact waypoint.
Your knowledge will be appreciated.
A route is a series of waypoints that you plan to navigate in the order you choose.
To navigate to a waypoint, you just use the GoTo feature and select the waypoint. When you do that, the unit puts a straight line on the Chart view between where you are and the waypoint.
The unit also draws a Track as you move about, you can retrace that back to the waypoint if you want.
