I'm looking pretty serious at buying the Helix 7 KVD SI/DI Combo and was wanting to see if anyone has one of these units and the good and bad about them. Thanks

I'm having transducer troubles but once I get new HD ducer I'll probally like it. Mapping is slow to load- even when switch screen views then back to map- and no memory card slot- just one for LakeMaster Micro

You can see it looses depth /bottom in video and see how slow mapping comes up. With My 859 I had mapping would be instant when switching views.




I'd definately do the HD ducer upgrade.

Is the KVD version anything special or does it just have red buttons

I've seen it on ebay for $648.00 and free shipping. Seems like a pretty nice unit.

I think the Helix is supposed to have a faster processor than the legacy numbered units...so I am not sure why your mapping is slow.

Big Poppa, check out Wayne P.'s solution posted on 12/21 in the Equipment forum. It worked for me and is still working. The pins in your power cable may not be making a good connection. Easy fix if it works. Some type of power problem id likely.

I need to see if there is software update? Only has only micro slot so it does everything? Pull mapping card and pop in memory card.?.
