I've been out of the fishing game for 3 years and am now getting back in it. I'm looking to upgrade the unit on my bow. I'm a teacher/coach and my wife doesn't work so I'm thinking the new helix 5 DI.
Question is, why is this so much cheaper than the old DI units used to be. Seemed like you couldn't buy a decent DI unit for less than $500 5 years ago. Are electronics for boats getting cheaper?
