I just got a helix 9 and was wondering if you guys could give me a few pointers. I know there are a lot of variables,(water clarity, etc) but what would be a good place to start with sensitivity, contrast , chartspeed, mph? Any help would be appreciated
Thanks

Forgot to mention, this is SI I'm asking about

I have helix 9 si also and what I recommend is that you learn your setting( sensitivity ,contrast,sharpness) and adjust them as depth and bottom hardness changes for best picture.
goodluck sir
